According to an article published this morning by the Washington Post, a group of hackers identified as “Anonymous” has struck again. The hackers announced on Twitter that they were responsible for hacking Infragard and adding a video of Coolio’s hit song from the 90s, “Gangsta’s Paradise.”
Despite the popularity of the song 15 years ago, Ohio-based Infragard, which is also sponsored by the FBI, was probably not too pleased about it.
All of this lends to a few questions about our safety online: the news is constantly harping on about the safety of Facebook privacy features and how users remain unprotected by third-party members accessing information, but it seems like we have en even bigger problem on our hands. How can we ever feel safe if the FBI can’t keep its top-secret information private? What does this mean for the rest of us?
