A hacking group recently attacked online forums used by UC Irvine students, teachers and alumni, posting gruesome videos portraying human and animal mutilation that caused such traumatic responses in some viewers that some went to hospitals, it was reported Tuesday.

“Some things I’ve seen I definitely cannot unsee,” Alina Kim, a coordinator for UC Irvine’s student-run online community, told The Orange County Register. “Some individuals were reportedly hospitalized with vomiting, panic attacks, traumatic responses. This is something that has real psychological effects.”

According to The Register, about 3,000 users were exposed to the images during the attack that began the morning of Jan. 9. The attack targeted the Discord online messaging and communication platform, which is not managed by the university.
