A French-language global television network regained control of one of its 11 channels Thursday after a cyberattack a day earlier crippled its broadcasts and social media accounts.
Television network TV5Monde was gradually regaining control of its channels and social media outlets after suffering what the network’s director called an “extremely powerful cyberattack.”
In addition to its 11 channels, TV5Monde lost control of its social media outlets and its websites, director Yves Bigot said in a video message posted later on Facebook.
On a mobile site that was still active, the network said it was “hacked by an Islamist group.” ISIS logos and markings appeared on TV5Monde social media accounts.
But there was no immediate claim of responsibility by ISIS or any other group.
