Friday, January 16, 2009 – For close to 30 minutes on Wednesday users trying to access the familiar LA Indymedia homepage instead saw a different image on their computer screens . The site had been the victim of hackers. The image below is a screen grab of the hackers attack.

Systems administrators were quickly able to disable the hack and restore access to the site. The attack is believed to be part of a larger internet war which exploded in cyberspace recently and appears somehow connected to the ongoing situation in Gaza. There are reports of hacker attacks around the world against sites with content about the war.
The Los Angeles Independent Media Center is sorry for any inconvenience caused by the disruption of our service to the local community. Most of the site’s features are now functioning normally but we are still experiencing some difficulties related to the hack. We hope you understand and we thank you for your patience.
