Anonymous Hackers 'Explains' Hijack of US Sentencing Commission Website

Hackers have embedded a video statement on the homepage of a US government agency in response to the death of digital activist Aaron Swartz. Aaron Swartz who hanged himself in his Brooklyn apartment.

The statement – purportedly from hacktivist collective Anonymous – said Aaron Swartz had died because he “faced an impossible choice” and had been forced into “playing a game he could not win.”

Swartz – an advocate of free information online and co-founder of the website Reddit – was arrested in January 2011. He was alleged to have used the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) network to download large quantities of publicly available academic papers from the JSTOR database.
