Site for Kirk Cameron Christmas Movie Was Reportedly Targeted by Islamic Hackers

Christmas is under attack. And that’s why people like actor Kirk Cameron are fighting back. Cameron has a movie coming out next called Saving Christmas, and take a guess what it’s about.

Here’s the poster for the movie, just to give you some idea of how Christmas-y it’s going to be:

Well, the production team behind Cameron’s movie told The Blaze this weekend that the movie’s website, SavingChristmas.com, was targeted by Islamic hackers.

A screenshot posted by The Blaze shows what appears to be Turkish text making some kind of vague threat about the pictured hero rising:

The site was targeted by, apparently, a “fairly sophisticated” hacking attempt both on Sunday and Monday morning. An executive for Provident Films said, “We have expected opposition to the message of ‘Saving Christmas’ from the beginning. But we had no idea it would come from the other side of the world. This incident only heightens our resolve to help this important message get out.”

Christmas!
