Round Rock Independent School District has shut down its website after hackers break into the website(  Hacker has managed to post vulgar pictures in the site.

While i'm trying to get more information about the incident, i came across a Hackforums Post.  In which, the attacker posted that the school website is using a default & very Weak Login credentials for the admin panel(username is 'admin' and password 'admin1).

At the time of writing, the hacker removed the post.  However, I have managed to take the screen shot of the post(from Google Cache):
