Hactivists to the rescue

Here's a local story (to me) from the New Zealand Herald who report that "Internet avengers track down mean-spirited hacker." It seems that a hacker called @AnonVoldemort took down the website of a charity that provides free school breakfasts to children in New Zealand. It's owner asked via Facebook for help and the infamous hactivist collective Anonymous duly responded and passed him the contact details of a hacker in Spain. The police are now investigating. Hacktivists have a code of ethics, you don't attack charities that help children.
    Inside Child Poverty still has a Facebook page, but it may be awhile before their website is up and running.
