“deleted” (updated)

According to chatter on Twitter, hackers have disabled the website of the CBS network. It’s not clear whether they’ve compromised the archives, or just defaced the website – or, for that matter, what the attack is in retaliation for.

Some sources on Twitter are attributing the attack to hacktivist group Anonymous.

Update: Minutes later, the site is back up. Spokespersons affiliated with Anonymous are claiming responsibility with the tag #OpMegaUpload. @jeremiahfelt writes:

“Anonymous did not take down #CBS .com ; the IP for their web host changed from to & 37; looks like poisoned DNS”

The attack is starting to get coverage. And the National Journal notes that some Anonymous spokespersons implied Fox might be the next target.
