SALISBURY, Md. — The Salisbury-area TV station WBOC was hacked by ISIS supporters on Tuesday morning.

An individual or group calling itself “CyberCaliphate” took over the station’s website and Twitter, posting pro-ISIS propaganda. The propaganda had such comments as “I love you ISIS” and “There is no law but Sharia!”

The station has regained control of their website, however their Twitter remained compromised Tuesday evening.

WBOC said law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, have been contacted to investigate.
