EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Hackers apparently broke into the Eden Prairie High School Web site, replacing the school's home page with vulgarity and a picture of the Turkish flag and a handgun.

The hacker's message said "Hacked by Silent Assault" and "---- You isRAel" above a link to a music video and a picture of the Turkish flag with a handgun lying on top of the flag.

The hacked site was visible until around noon Sunday, when access to the link was disabled.  It is not clear if the school disabled the link or if the hackers are responsible for that as well.

The school district said in a statement that it was targeted by a viral hacking that affected more than 100 different Web sites worldwide.  When the district found out about the attack, it disabled the Web site until the issue can be resolved.

The district says the hackers did not have any access to data or school servers and systems.

The main school district Web site and other links were not affected.

KARE 11 captured these images of the hacked site before access was disabled.
