DDOS Attack Launched on State of Washington Site

Updated on: 2012-04-21 || Source: news.softpedia.com
Hackers part of the UGNazi collective said they would continue to launch distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks on sites that belong to the United States government, and it seems that they are keeping their promise. For the past 4 hours they have been attacking the State of Washington website, making it inaccessible to visitors.

One of the reasons for this attack seems to be the fact that law enforcement representatives from the State of Washington aren’t handling drug cartels and noise complaints as they should.

“The cops in WA are extremely lazy, they do not care about the peoples safety, they only care about eating there donuts and staying in there car all day,” the hackers wrote in their statement.

“Also WA is a big factor in the way government is ran, they take away the freedom which we deserve, which we were promised by this country, but it seems we do not receive what we were told we were going to give.” 

The hacktivists seem determined to continue their operation purposed to protect free speech which, according to them, is missing even in schools, where students are not allowed to express their views.

“Well we are done with that, what the united states of America promises in there laws WE WANT THAT, NO WE NEED THAT , WE WANT FREEDOM , NOT THE [EXPLETIVE] THEY FEED US,” they explained. 

“Washington State get your cops and your government workers to work, we tax payers are not getting what we pay for.”

The site of the State of Washington is the fourth target of this campaign. It all started with the site of New York City, then continued with the one of the District of Columbia, which the hackers considered to be the country’s heart.

Yesterday, the target was the site of NASDAQ, and UGNazi members reveal that there will be many more to come.
