Sharon town website is hacked


SHARON — Returning to work after the New Year’s holiday break, Town Hall employees found meeting schedules and agendas missing from the town’s website, www.sharonct.org.

Tina Pitcher, the selectmen’s secretary, said, “When we logged onto the website, meeting schedules and agendas had disappeared.”

Town Clerk Linda Amerighi said that it seemed town meeting schedules and agendas were the only data the hackers had removed from the site.
