National Crime Agency Hacked

The National Crime Agency’s website is down this morning – notorious hacking collective the Lizard Squad are claiming responsibility. Last week the NCA arrested six people for purchasing “Stressed Out” software from Lizard Squad that can be used to attack and shut down websites.

No wonder they want help to break into your Snapchats, they can’t even keep their own website online…

UPDATE: The NCA are responding to the attack by throwing a pedantic tantrum.

Quote of the Day

Dr Alexander Kogan, the app developer who originally harvested the Facebook data, said…

“I think what Cambridge Analytica has tried to sell is magic and made claims this is incredibly accurate and it tells you everything there is to tell about you. But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
