Hackers break into Senate computers

By Diane Bartz And Thomas Ferraro Tue Jun 14, 2011




WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Senate’s website was hacked over the weekend, leading to a review of all of its websites, in the latest embarrassing breach of security to hit a major U.S.-based institution.


The loosely organized hacker group Lulz Security broke into a public portion of the Senate website but did not reach behind a firewall into a more sensitive portion of the network, Martina Bradford, the deputy Senate sergeant at arms, said on Monday…

Lulz Security, who have hacked into Sony’s website and the Public Broadcasting System, posted online a list of files that appear not to be sensitive but indicate the hackers had been into the Senate’s computer network.


"We don’t like the U.S. government very much," Lulz Security said at the top of their release. "This is a small, just-for-kicks release of some internal data from Senate.gov – is this an act of war, gentlemen? Problem?"
The comment refers to reports that the military had decided that it could respond to cyber attacks from foreign countries with traditional military force…

When this same group attacked PBS back in May, they said they were motivated by a desire to defend Wikileaks and Bradley Manning. So, they don’t like the US government very much. And with their hacking into the Senate's computers could have downloaded who knows what and forwarded it to Wikileaks.

Yes, it is. That little comment about not liking the U.S. Government is a tacit admission to waging war against the United States. If these guys are Americans, they are in deep kimchee. If they aren't doing it on behalf of a foreign power, it's sedition. If they are, it's treason. If they are not Americans, then they are enemy combatants, but either way, they have put themselves in the line of a military response. NSA just needs to find them, and Special Forces can do the rest.

If they had done this a week ago, Weiner could have claimed that his troubles were their fault. His timing sucks. :D

Well, they are poking the dog with a stick by making the act of war comment.

And this should be done ASAP. And it should be filmed and sold on blu ray with proceeds benefiting our wonded soldiers. No shooting but just watching these little geeks shitting their pants would be worth any price.
