The University of Virginia's website was hacked Monday night, The Daily Progress in Charlottesville reported.

People who were trying to access the university's homepage at that time saw a hacking group's logo instead.

A group called Root The Box has claimed that it is behind the incident and that it will release sensitive data that it accessed at a later date. But university officials told The Daily Progress that sensitive and confidential information was not compromised.

Campus police have asked the FBI to help them investigate the hacking.
