Boston Police respond to Anonymous hack with sarcasm

Ken Harthun Ken Harthun Profile: Ken Harthun

There’s a saying that “nothing succeeds like insouciance.” Seems the Boston Police Department knows how that works. You may be aware of this news item, courtesy of Sophos:

A week ago, the BPDNews.com website which provides news about the Boston police and crime in the area was hacked by Anonymous. The hackers replaced the home page of the site with a message and a video of American rapper KRS-One performing his song “Sound of Da Police”.

After almost a week of downtime, Boston Police have managed to bring their website back up – and have proven they have got a sense of humour by making a video about the hack.
