angry tapir writes with this excerpt from TechWorld: “The pro-Iran hacktivist group that defaced the Baidu and Twitter Web sites a year ago has hit another target: the US Government’s Voice of America news site. Voice of America was knocked offline temporarily after hackers were able to change the organization’s DNS (Domain Name System) settings, redirecting Web traffic hitting Voice of America sites to another site controlled by the hackers.”
