Hackers take over gov’t website to avenge Swartz – CBS News

I don’t support Anonymous in any way, nor do I approve of their methods. But I will not argue with this. I’ll have more to say about the issue in a future post.

The hacker-activist group Anonymous says it hijacked the website of the U.S. Sentencing Commission to avenge the death of Aaron Swartz, an Internet activist who committed suicide.

The website of the commission, an independent agency of the judicial branch, was taken over early Saturday and replaced with a message warning that when Swartz killed himself two weeks ago “a line was crossed.”
