emil writes "Late evening Friday, January 25, U.S. Sentencing Commission website (http://www.ussc.gov) was hacked and encryped government files distributed by Anonymous, which threatens to release decryption passwords should the government not comply with demands for legal reforms. Anonymous cited the recent suicide of hacktivist Aaron Swartz as a "line that has been crossed" in the retaliatory defacement. Anonymous has not specified exactly what files they have obtained. The various files were named after Supreme Court judges. At a regular interval commencing today, Anonymous will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents. Anonymous called the launch of it new campaign a "warhead."
