Hacker Attack Looming?

The Associated Press reported on July 2 that a group of hackers has established a Website, defacers-challenge.com, that lists “rules” for hackers to plan an attack on thousands of Websites this Sunday, July 6, in a loosely coordinated “contest” designed to disrupt Internet traffic.

Although the Department of Homeland Security said in the AP report on Wednesday that it was aware of the plan, it has no intention of issuing any formal public warnings. “Frankly, hacker challenges occur frequently,” Homeland Security spokesman David Wray said in the AP report, “and we don’t think they all rise to the level of a warning.”
