In addition the page had flashing gifs and it was showing an email address where the administrator should be in contact if they wish to gain access to the site. Iltalehti contacted 24/7 support line on Sunday evening. According to the first call there was nothing out of the ordinary.

The reporters continued to see the banner repeatedly and contacted for the second time. This time it was confirmed that there were inappropriate materials on the site and that an investigation will be done.

Early on Sunday morning the eCommerce shop verified the hacking was done, but that the compromised system was from a third party. blocked access to the system for repairs. Because the compromised system was separate, the security of visitors to the online store was not breached.
