Two MIT websites were compromised with a message signed by Internet activist group Anonymous late Sunday. The message called for reform of “computer crime laws,” reform of “copyright and intellectual property laws,” greater recognition for “oppression and injustices,” and a commitment to a “free and unfettered internet.” This occurred following a denial-of-service attack lasting nearly three hours, allegedly by Anonymous.
