Lieberman's Campaign Website Hacked


On the day of the primary in Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman's campaign website has been offline all day. According to spokesman for Senator Joe Lieberman, their campaign website (Joe2006.com) has been under a denial of service attack since yesterday evening. TPMmuckraker has e-mail from the hosting company confirming that it's not an overdue account, but rather a denial of attack.

This note is to confirm that the suspension of displaying the website www.joe2006.com: was not due to to an overdue account. Friends of Joe Lieberman is completely paid in full. The screen that showed yesterday is a default image from the server. In order to isolate where the denial of service attack was coming into the site, we disabled it as rapidly as possible. Once we were able to isolate all the site files for study we were able to add an appropriate one-page maintenance message.

Lieberman's people claim it that pro-Lamont nutrooters are behind the attack.

Expect another round of Ned Lamont saying, "I don't know anything about the blogs"

Here's the response from the Lamont campaign, in case you're interested:

Apparently the Lieberman campaign is pushing a story that we have coordinated an attack against their website. Not a chance. Here’s the unqualified statement Sean Smith has called for.

If Senator Lieberman’s website was indeed hacked, we had absolutely no part in it, denounce the action, and urge whoever is responsible cease and desist immediately. It is our sincerest wish that everyone planning to vote for Ned Lamont or Joe Lieberman does so today.

Remember it's not "terrorism" if your doing it to the other guy. If your enemy is getting screwed it's called "hactivism" and is a perfectly acceptable form of "free speech".

I noticed the 15 *enterprise* plan but figured they must have had an unadvertised plan or been paying for extra bandwidth. Noobs indeed...

Ok, maybe not

"They were actually paying quite a bit more, with over 400 gigs of bandwidth a month," Hubbell said. Hubbell declined to give an exact figure, but Geary said the campaign had been paying around $150 a month for the hosting service. (Earlier, Geary told Paul Kiel the campaign paid "a bit more" than the reported $15 monthly fee.)

I guess that's what I get for listening to Kos. ;)
