Anonymous Hacks The FTC

Just a week after hacking the CIA, Anonymous continued its onslaught of attacks on government websites early this morning by hacking several websites belonging to the Federal Trade Comission.

The Associated Press reports:

The loosely organised collection of cyber rebels said it attacked the FTC's consumer protection business centre and the National Consumer Protection Week websites.

Both sites were replaced with a violent German-language video satirising the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA.

As of right now, both and are not responsive, so we can't confirm the attacks. The FTC's main homepage appears unaffected. We'll know soon enough if it's just a temporary oversight or next on the hit list. [The Associated Press via Time]
