The extent of the damage is yet to be determined, however some internal data such as employee records were posted as screenshots, and there was disruption of intranet operations at some properties. The attack is reported to be politically motivated."

    There are only two theories which make sense.

    The first one is that agents provocateurs conned some poor fools into defacing the website so that they could be swept up. Typical J.E. Hoover thuggishness so beloved by our corporofascist political masters.

    The second is that it was an inside job by one of the NSA's tiger teams, done to keep people ready to sign over everything in the Global War on Terror.

    Either way, it's a trap.

    Wake up, sheeple!

      So the "politically motivated" assessment is correct then.

      It's a case of Munchausen Syndrome. No better way to get attention than to get hacked and have some useless employee data get exposed.

        I might be a coward, but at least I'm having a go.

    This is not the first time gambling met defacement. Remember that other Web site [slashdot.org] that was ruined by dice?
