REGINA – Officials at Regina’s international airport say their computers were hacked.

People logging onto the airport’s website Wednesday were greeted by a picture of a man with a mask, similar to the one worn by the lead character in 2005’s “V For Vendetta” movie.

Underneath was a message taunting web administrators by noting their site wasn’t secure.

Marketing agency Look Matters oversees the website – yqr.ca – and spokesman Rob Arnold says it appears to have been the work of the Anonymous Group.

The group is known around the world for hacking into sites including government agencies and major security corporations.

Arnold says the website was back up and running by mid-morning.

“The software system that we use and other platforms use just happened to have a hole in it,” Arnold said. “The fix is knowing where the hole is, patching it, and ensuring that the security updates are done.”
