Anonymous hits Ohio FBI partner website
LONDON - February 24, 2012 (WPVI) -- Hackers claiming allegiance to the loose-knit Anonymous movement have claimed responsibility for vandalizing an Ohio FBI partner website, replacing its homepage with the video for rap hit "Gangsta's Paradise."
The hackers said Friday that they were responsible for defacing the website of the Dayton, Ohio-based chapter of Infragard, a public-private partnership for critical infrastructure protection sponsored by the FBI.
The Ohio site was replaced with the video for Coolio's 1995 rap hit and a profane message attacking Infragard as a "sinister alliance" between corporations and law enforcement.
Anonymous has promised weekly hacks as the amorphous group continues its campaign against law enforcement worldwide.
The FBI did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
