B.C. government Facebook page hacked

The B.C. government’s Facebook page was restored after a brief hacking on Monday

The provincial government has tweeted an apology after its Facebook page was hit by hackers.

In separate tweets posted Monday night, the government apologized for any inconvenience and said its Facebook page had been vandalized and compromised.

A partial photo of a person in camouflage and what appeared to be Arabic script was briefly posted.

The site was quickly restored and was operating normally Tuesday.

No other government sites were involved.

A statement from the government says its staff worked with Facebook to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.
