Anonymous Re-Hacks US Sentencing Site Into Video Game Asteroids
Anonymous re-hacks US Sentencing site into video game Asteroids
Summary: The U.S. Sentencing Commission website has been hacked a second time. A code distributed by Anonymous “Operation Last Resort” turns ussc.gov into a game of Asteroids.
The U.S. Sentencing Commission website has been hacked again and a code distributed by Anonymous “Operation Last Resort” turns ussc.gov into a playable video game.
Visitors enter the code, and then the website that sets guidelines for sentencing in United States Federal courts becomes “Asteroids.”
The trademark Anonymous “Guy Fawkes” face is comprised of white text saying, “We do not forgive. We do not forget.”
Update Sunday, January 27, 11pm PST: the ussc.gov website has been offline intermittently, ostensibly due to high traffic. Anonymous Operation Last Resort tweeted the Asteroids hack can be “played” on yet another U.S. government website: “Backup gaming site while USSC.gov is down miep.uscourts.gov ” (the U.S. Probation Office for the state of Michigan). This suggests, in this writer’s opinion, that Anonymous has background control of multiple U.S. government websites – and after the antics this weekend, the group likely has had this access for a while and they are playing a game of cat-and-mouse with the United States Department of Justice.
