Anti-Putin Hackers Seize Moscow Court’s Web Site, Posting Calls to ‘Free Pussy Riot’

Hackers briefly seized control Monday of the Web site of the Moscow district court that sentenced three members of the feminist protest band Pussy Riot to two years in a penal colony last week. For three hours on Tuesday morning, Khamovnichesky Court’s usually static Web site was enlivened with a recording of the new Pussy Riot song, “Putin Is Lighting the Fires of Revolution,” and an embedded copy of a music video for a song called “Hate,” by the Bulgarian gay icon Azis. The video was described as “a rather sleazy and erotic gay clip,” by the Russian news site Gazeta. A headline across the top of the site read, “Putin’s Thieving Gang Is Robbing Our Country! Wake Up, Comrades!” (…) The hackers were apparently encouraged to attack the site early on Tuesday by an anonymous user of the Web forum 2ch — the Russian equivalent of the message board 4chan. At 6:17 a.m., a message was posted on the board with the login and password information needed to access the Web site’s back end, along with a username and password that granted access to the court’s e-mail inbox. Within minutes, gleeful 2ch users began posting screenshots of their progress in defacing the hacked Web site and discussing what video might be the most (in)appropriate to display. Soon, a Twitter account linked to the Russian arm of Anonymous posted a link to archived copies of messages apparently taken from one of the court’s e-mail inboxes. An analysis of the archive by the Moscow bureau of The New York Times shows that the vast majority of the 487 messages were e-mails sent to the court from users of the Web site change.org. Last week the site promised to deliver a “Free Pussy Riot!” petition signed by more than 136,000 people to the court and to officials including Russian President Vladimir Putin.
