The website, ussc.gov, was implicated in what Anonymous calls ‘Operation Last Resort’, and the group distributed a keycode on Twitter so users could take play the game.

The hacktivists took over the website on Friday, January 25, in honour of hacker Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide this month as he faced trial for accessing paywalled academic journals.

The group wants reform of the US justice system, and say they’ve ripped sensitive information from the USSC website that they will make public if their demands are are not met.
