Hacktivists Anonymous claim to have taken down Home Office website | Technology | guardian.co.uk: "Anonymous announced on Twitter: "TANGO DOWN - http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk For your draconian surveillance proposals! Told you to #ExpectUs!"
The group was thought to have used a denial-of-service attack, where large numbers of computers overload a website with requests.
If proven to be true, the incident could prove embarrassing for the government as the method is considered one of the least complicated tools in the hackers' arsenal. Anonymous had promised to carry out the mass assault in a tweet posted on Wednesday and a flurry of messages in following days encouraged supporters to join in."
