“NEW ZEALAND–Internal Affairs’ websites may have been knocked offline by a group of online activists that has previously attacked the websites of financial institutions and Middle Eastern governments.

Access to the department’s main websites was blocked for most of yesterday, although spokesman Tony Wallace said it couldn’t be sure whether it was the result of action by the group Anonymous, which warned in a YouTube video that it would launch a “denial-of-service” attack from Monday.”
