Boston Police Department Hacked

Find me on:

Yesterday the BPD got defaced, the hacktivist group Anonymous taking claim. For a while the site had a OWS message (related to Boston's forced exit of the Occupy Boston protesters.) The site seems to be back to normal now.

This is one of many F*uckFBIFriday hacks that were planned for yesterday. And the group says there's more to come for law enforcement agencies who deny right of speech demonstrators.
