Computer hackers threaten Dept. of Justice
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Hackers claiming to be from the group "anonymous" are now threatening to release sensitive information about the US Department of Justice.
The move comes in response to the recent suicide of internet activist Aaron Swartz, who faced federal charges.
The hackers claim to have a file on multiple servers ready for immediate release.
The group hijacked the website of the US Government agency responsible for federal sentencing guidelines today.
Members posted a message on the site demanding the US to reform its justice system or face incriminating leaks to select news outlets.
Anonymous is believed to be a collective of so-called "hacktivists" who oppose attempts to limit internet freedoms.
