Anonymous group allegedly takes down official UK website4/8/2012
When the website for the UK's Home Office went down on Saturday morning, an online message blamed "high volume of traffic" but the British government is monitoring very closely the ensuing flurry of Tweets claiming Anonymous purposefully hacked the website of its immigration department to protest "draconian surveillance proposals" for monitoring email. Other Twitter feeds claimed it an Anonymous protest against changes in UK-US extradition laws. Anonymous' hacktivists also struck earlier this week by defacing 500 Chinese websites in protest of government censorship, but in that case there was no question of credit, as Anonymous posted on official government and agency sites the statement, "Dear Chinese government, you are not infallible, today websites are hacked, tomorrow it will be your vile regime that will fall."
Did Anonymous hack the site or happily take credit for a technical problem?
