Boston Police respond to Anonymous hack with sarcasm

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 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.
