‘Hacktivists’ target San Francisco subway website


The international group of hackers known as Anonymous began a cyber attack on a website of the San Francisco subway, in retaliation for the agency's bid to shut down cellphone service to limit a protest over a fatal shooting.

As of late Sunday the main website for the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) was still functioning, but the San Francisco Chronicle and other media reported the hackers had defaced a related website -- -- and leaked user's personal information.

BART made a "conscious decision of ordering various cell phone companies to terminate services for the downtown area inhibiting those in the area from using cell phones -- even in the case of an emergency," said the group in a statement posted online.
