NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The website of the Tennessee comptroller's office was hacked into and a message was put up by a group claiming to be the Moroccan Islamic Union-Mail.

According to WSMV-TV , the comptroller's office said its website was defaced at 9:30 a.m. Friday for about a half-hour. The comptroller's office has temporarily pulled its website offline and nothing was compromised.

The office says the incident was reported to state and federal authorities for further investigation.

The group left a message and a photo of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
