US Treasury website hacked, then suspended

A website of the US Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) was suspended Tuesday after it was hacked, a BEP spokeswoman said.

"The hosting company used by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing had an intrusion and as a result of that intrusion, numerous websites (BEP and non-BEP) were affected," Claudia Dickens told AFP.

G'day ATS,

The article says that apparently the Hack was traced to the Ukraine.

In the eyes of the US, I'd imagine Ukraine = Russia so there may be some fall out from this.

I wonder what they were trying to do, who it was and for whom they were working.

I'll post more details if I can find them.

Doubt it.

It could have been North Korea using a proxy server, they have a long history of forging US scrip.

Yeah, just like Canada and Mexico are part of the USA.

You aware of the number of individuals who routinely hack US government sites and databases? It's a lot more common than you think. You only hear about it when they are trying to make an example and want to arrest the hacker. 9 times out of 10, when a hacker gets into a US gov high security database, they tend to get jobs.
