CHICAGO (WLS) -- DePaul University is searching for the hacker behind a white supremacist, anti-Semitic flyer that appeared on campus.

The university president says someone hacked into several printers and the flyer printed simultaneously. Officials say the source was not a DePaul account.

In an email, DePaul President Dennis Holtschneider said the university does not yet know the extent of the hacking and asked for everyone to destroy any flyers that may appear in printers. He also said the university's remote printer feature will be turned off as the internal investigation continues.

"We are currently investigating the breach as well as the source and origin of this despicable act, which certainly is not reflective of DePaul's values nor of our campus culture where ALL are welcome," Holtschneider wrote.
