Hackers take down MI5 and MI6 websites

From the capitalist press:

The websites of intelligence services MI5 and MI6 were brought down for an hour yesterday [Sept 4]  in protest over attempts by the British government to extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to Sweden.

Between 9am and 11.30am the sis.gov.uk and mi5.gov.uk websites were hit and left inaccessible.

Renowned hacking group Anonymous claimed it brought the sites down using a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, as part of its ongoing #OpFreeAssange (Operation Free Assange) protests.
