Senate Site Hacked

Anthony Weiner claimed his Twitter account was hacked -- a charge that turned out to be a bigger lie than Charlie Sheen claiming he's OK.

But there was a real Congressional hack. Recently the U.S. Senate Web site was breached by a group called Lulz Security. Lulz claims it broke into it to force the government to get serious about security. Fortunately, the break didn't go too deep, either because Lulz is not that good or they just wanted to prove a point, and didn't cause any real damage. My guess is the latter.
