Gazette, Daily Mail websites hacked

By Staff reports

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A hacker outside the country injected malicious code into the Gazette website's advertising server Wednesday morning, leading to a disruption in service that lasted a few hours.

The Daily Mail's site -- -- also was affected.

By mid-morning, both sites were up and running again, and they are safe for reader traffic.

Because the problem stemmed from a breach of our advertising server, we have switched to an ad server that is maintained and operated by Google.

We regret any inconvenience this might have caused our readers.
