Hacked Albuquerque police website back online
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The Albuquerque police website is back online after authorities say a cyberattack took it down for hours.
The department couldn't immediately be reached for comment Sunday evening, but said earlier that the site was breached. It was visible late Sunday afternoon after going down in the early afternoon.
Police spokesman Simon Drobik said earlier that the disruption was due to a cyberattack but didn't know the source of the hack.
The attack comes days after a YouTube video emerged threatening retaliation for a recent police shooting that left a homeless man dead. The video that bore the logo of the computer hacking collective Anonymous warned of a cyberattack on city websites and called for a protest march.
Hundreds of protesters were marching Sunday to protest recent police shootings.
