The website of Australia’s Classification Board has been hacked. Visitors to the site overnight were greeted with the above message.
The message is a clear protest against recent classification controversies, notably the Federal Government proposed mandatory internet filter and perhaps also the ongoing debate around an R18+ rating for video games.
A spokesperson for the Classification Board told the ABC that “the body was aware of the incident, and was investigating. She said the investigation would look into who was responsible, and how much of the board’s website was affected.”
The website is currently down and throws into doubt this site’s ability to post its regular Censor Watch on Monday. Damn you, hackers!
