Utah school website taken over by lingerie, hotel booking
TOOELE, Utah (AP) — A Utah high school has a new website after its former site was held for ransom.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday that the new owners of Tooele High School's website asked the district for $9,800 to buy back the domain.
The school's former website began redirecting visitors to a photo gallery of women in lingerie and a hotel booking site after the web address expired. District spokeswoman Marie Denson says the domain was purchased legally.
The district decided to make a new domain instead of paying the money. Denson says it has started an information campaign so parents can steer clear of the former site.
