Cyberattack Takes Down Controversial Mauna Kea Telescope Website
“It appears the stars have not yet aligned for the Thirty Meter Telescope project, which saw its main website targeted by an alleged cyberattack this weekend. The site was unavailable for several hours, a project spokesperson confirmed, and a group known as Operation Green Rights–associated with the popular Anonymous movement–has claimed responsibility.
A post added yesterday on Operation Green Rights’ website read: ‘Nothing will ever justify the destruction of ecosystems; filthy money can never replace them. Stand with the Hawaiian natives against #TMT.’ The statement accompanied a screenshot of a downed Hawaii state government site–also an apparent target of the cyberattack.”
