The shutdown Monday of three Alaska military websites was caused by a hardware problem at Fort Wainwright, not cyber terrorism, according to Army officials.
"No Army or military functions were compromised as a result of the website shutdowns," said John Pennell, an Alaska Army spokesperson.
Pennell said the JBER site – which serves the combined Anchorage base serving the Army and Air Force – was not affected because it is hosted on a different server.
During the outage, all Alaska military personnel had email and web access. Only the host pages for Fort Wainwright, Fort Greely and the U.S. Army Alaska were affected, according to Pennell.
Pennell said the three websites affected by the Alaska outage should be back online Tuesday.
