CBS.com “deleted” (updated)
by Jon Christian
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:
