Hackers proclaiming to be pro-ISIS defaced 10 OH government websites on Sunday as well as the government websites for Howard County, Maryland, and Brookhaven, Long Island.

A group calling itself "Team System DZ" says it's behind the hack.

Visitors to the sites were greeted with messages supporting the Islamic State terror group, and had the Islamic Call to Prayer played through their computer's speakers.

While most websites remain shut down, some are up and running today.

The website of Ohio Gov. John Kasich and pages of local governments in Ohio and NY showed similar messages.

The same message was left on government websites in Brookhaven, N.Y. and Howard County, Md.

The affected Ohio sites include those of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, the Ohio Governor, the Ohio First Lady, the Office of Workforce Transformation, Office of Health Transformation and Medicaid. "Radical Islam infiltrating the heartland", he wrote. The group responsible for this has carried out multiple different hacks in the past and a lot of their attacks had anti-Israel messages which should give us an idea of what their agenda is.

Officials in NY and Maryland said no data or personal information was taken from the websites as a result of the hack.

The state websites were subsequently taken off line, according to a spokesperson for the Ohio Department of Administrative Services who spoke with Associated Press.

The message included a link to the group's Facebook page.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich's website was down after it was hacked.

Team System Dz has claimed responsibility for hacking a number of other government websites around the world, Cleveland.com reported.

Website visitors saw the same black background and logo found on the other hacked sites, with the same words about being held accountable and blood in Muslim countries.
