"The whistleblowing, government-document sharing site Cryptome
was hacked and defaced this weekend. All 54,000 Cryptome hosted
files were deleted.
"According to Cryptome, "A person wrote claiming to know who did
the hack. No way to know if this claim is true. Hackers, like
spies, often blame one another to cover their tracks. Blocking
attacks is nearly impossible due to the purposefully weak security
of the Internet. Nearly all security methods are bogus. A competent
hacker or spy, or the two working together, can penetrate easily.
We monitor and keep back-ups ready. And do not trust our ISP, email
provider and officials to tell the truth or protect us.""
