The cyber attack was performed by Cyber Justice Team, which calls itself a “Team of cyber activists fighting injustice in the world. Anti ISIS/oppressors/extremists/haters”, according to its Twitter page.
Announcing the recent hack attack, the group tweeted: “Nazi anti Muslim hate propaganda not found”.
The controversial cover, which depicted a white woman being clasped by dark-skinned hands, has drawn heated responses in the international press and on social media.
The conservative wSieci magazine twinned the cover picture with the headline “The Islamic Rape of Europe”.
The article explores the matter of the refugee/migrant crisis in the light of sexual assault claims made in Germany in the wake of New Year's Eve celebrations (over 1,550 complaints have been lodged).
The website was still unavailable at the time of writing on Monday. (rg/pk)
