Hacked Marin County website prompts shutdown of all California state sites

"A hacked county website in California that redirected users to a pornographic site triggered the federal government late Tuesday to initiate a system-wide shutdown of all government sites in the Golden State. The process was never completed, after state officials urged the feds to reverse their decision to take offline all state websites bearing the "ca.gov" suffix. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is responsible for all ".gov" sites."

"The hacker apparently made an adjustment in the domain name system (DNS) server that rerouted certain traffic, Hanacek said."
