On Sunday a group of Chinese hackers took down what they thought was the CNN sports network, in reality they took down the Sport Network Website, which feeds data into the major sports networks like CNN Sports.

Hacktivism is alive and well as we move closer to the Olympics, which is quickly becoming centric to the issues happening in Tibet.

The cyber war is alive and well, but this time is following on more along the lines of Hacktivism, where a feeder site is taken down, meaning a loss of data across the network. Even if they thought they were taking out one thing, they ended up doing what they wanted to do in the first place which was to disrupt CNN\'s Sports Network.

The full screen of the hack on the sports network site looked like this (from techcrunch)
