UPDATE 1:05 PM: Akron-Canton Airport officials say that no flight, ticket or financial information was accessed in a confirmed hack of the airport's website, apparently by the same Turkish-based group which got into the City of Akron's website.
In an updated statement, airport officials say "names, emails, cities and phone numbers" from contest submissions were obtained in the breach, but that there was no credit card or email password information, or flight itineraries on the airport's website..
(Akron-Canton Airport statement, updated 12:25 PM) Anyone who has booked a ticket or is flying from the airport, your information has not been affected by the attack on our website this morning.
Information that was obtained included entries to contests on the airport's website. This included names, emails, cities and phone numbers. No email address passwords or credit card information was on the airport's website.
If you have signed up for an airport contest in the past two years, you should change your email password as a precaution.
If you are flying from the Akron Canton Airport, it's business as usual. Your personal information on your flight iternary has not been accessed or compromised.
(Earlier ANN coverage) It may have happened again; a website security company that tracks threats says the same Turkish-based group that hacked into the City of Akron's website has done the same thing to the Akron-Canton Airport site, displaying an anti-American message and linking to a database file with information from the Airport's database.
"E-Hacking News" says the culprits calling themselves TurkishAjan made the announcement on a Twitter site.
AkronNewsNow is not revealing the Twitter site due to security concerns for those individuals with sensitive user name and password information in the data files.
CAK's Kristi Van Auken released a statement this morning noting the airport had successfully dealt with the incursion and the Akron-Canton Airport site was functional and secure.
"At 8:00 a.m. this morning, Akron-Canton Airport's website, AkronCantonAirport.com, was attacked by a TurkishAjan group." Van Auken said. "We are aware of the situation and are actively supporting the authorities in their investigation. We temporarily suspended access to our website while we worked to address the attack and secure information. As of 10:30 a.m., AkronCantonAirport.com is operating normally and is secure."
The link provided in the tweet leads to a file that contains the few documents, database (.xls) files and a configuration file.

The configuration file contains database name, Database username and database password.
While the contest.xls contains less sensitive information such as names and email addresses, the users.xls file contains user id, email address and encrypted password.
The same group is responsible for the City of Akron website hack. Following the City of Akron security breach, the city filed a police report. The city is also reportedly working with the FBI.
