The hacked server, secure2.donaldjtrump.com, which isn’t directly linked to the campaign’s home page, is behind CloudFlare’s content management and security system, Ars Technica reports.
The certificate of the server is legitimate and it looks like a real Trump campaign server. However, the image displayed is linked to some other website. The picture shows the following text:

Nothing Is Impossible
Peace From Iraq
It’s worth mentioning that the source code of the page, which is now offline, contains a link to JS on a Google Code account that’s now non-existent. The archive of the script shows that it’s not some malware.
In another related development, Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu, on Friday, demanded that an investigation should be launched into Trump’s use of an insecure Android phone.
