Activist group Anonymous says it has successfully knocked offline the public website of Australia's domestic spy agency, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO). The group says it also intends to target another of Australia's intelligence bodies, the Defence Signals Directorate (DSD).
Anonymous Australia said on Twitter that hackers had been "busy" attacking the site. Another Twitter post said: "ASIO Down. Once Again! DSD! You're NEXT!"
A Defence spokeswoman said the Cyber Security Operations Centre at the Defence Signals Directorate (DSD) was "aware of recent hacktivist group activity directed at the DSD website".
"The DSD website has not experienced any technical issues and has remained available," the spokeswoman said. "The DSD website does not host any classified information and any disruption would not represent a risk to DSD business."

I agree. This also can lead to tighter internet security - (spying on civillians) to control so called "Cyber Terrorists'
For more Gun Control they let loose "Domestic Terrorists" - For more Internet Control the let loose "Cyber Terrorists".
