Anonymous group hacks ussc.gov frontpage. UPDATE#3

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

http://www.ussc.gov/

Pretty interesting, though it could be nothing.

For those who don't know, the USSC is the United States Sentencing Commission. 

UPDATE: Looks like the hacked site has now been taken down. Actually, you can still access the site through it's ip address: http://66.153.19.162/. The site is mostly back under control, although it seems to be somewhat slow. You can still see the video that was on the hacked front page here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaPni5O2YyI

Appropriately, the mainstream media has now just started to pick up on the story. Here are some links:

so how do we KNOW that a GROUP hacked the site?

They claim to be part of a group.

 The group called themselves hackitivists I guess or that's what I caught from it. I sort of skimmed it the site was really really long. Honestly I kind of half read it I'm half asleep as well. Yet I don't like those threats it makes me worry for everyone I know. Sometimes people do actually carry on their threats.

isnt this old news?

No, it just happened like an hour ago. Could be a bunch of hot air on their part, but I thought it was interesting. Also, in the morning when the government workers wake up I imagine they'll take the site down to get control of the front page again, so this might be the only time to see it. Link is in the OP.
