Activity on the website has been suspended since Monday night; however, it is currently accessible.

At first, the news website announced, in a statement, that it has been hacked and fabricated news articles have been published on the website and social media platforms.

Al-Masry Al-Youm added that the attempts to stop the hacking attack are ongoing and they will take the necessary legal measures against the hackers.
