    Anonymous hacktivists appear to have successfully blasted the Formula 1 website off the net, with a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.

    The internet attack against www.formula1.com comes just ahead of Bahrain's highly controversial hosting of the Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend, which is planned to take place despite violent protests in the country.

    Anon demand a lot of things, do they really believe that DDOSing a website will force a government to release prisoners and completely change their policing etc ?

    Well the problem is even though they provide an information, the way they do it isn't legal and only result of members were arrested.

    Just a bunch of would-be famous...useless attacks for useless causes with useless results... they should go return playing at Counter-strike.

    I miss the "true hacker" period where penetrating a network was a game of skills and cleverness, not as now where you can use many tools made by others.

    Denial-of-service (DDoS) attack .....are so lame...... a few hours downtime doesn't mean anything for the webmaster .... And I'm saying webmaster because the actual F1 staff don't even care about it:)
    The only ones who got affected by this attack where the fans ,who temporarily couldn't access the site.
    @Roti ... Ferrari all the way!:D
