Anonymous hacks Infragard again

Dayton, Ohio chapter becomes a rap music venue

HACKTIVIST COLLECTIVE Anonymous has attacked the FBI affiliate Infragard for the second time, this time taking over and defacing the web site of its Dayton, Ohio chapter.

The hackers took over the web site, changing it totally and replacing its content with a Youtube video of rapper Coolio performing Gangsta's Paradise and a message of defiance.

The attack is part of the regular Friday releases from the group. "Greetings Pirates! Another #FuckFBIFriday is here and once again we emerge from the hacker underground to wreak havoc upon the 1%'s institutions of repression," says the message that introduces the hacking logs.

"Today we targeted the Dayton Ohio chapter of InfraGard, the sinister alliance between law enforcement, corporations, and white hat wannabees."

The message includes mention of the draconian trade agreement ACTA and suggests that while that exists the attacks will never stop.

"We broke into their webserver, perused their assorted presentation materials, and finally deleted everything and vandalized their website so we can boost our zone-h rankings," it says.

"You think your 'advanced commercial malware' research and your 'digital forensics first response' powerpoints can really withstand the hurricane of hellfire and 0days we got planned for yall?! Fellow hackers, crackers, anarchists and pirates, now is the hour to rise up and make war upon all corporate and government systems, driving them off our internet."

Although Anonymous has a history at attacking organisations on a Friday, this is perhaps the first attack to come out of its more formal commitment to this day of the week. µ
