U.S. Rep. Driehaus' Capital Office Struck By Hackers: Cincinnati Dem Among 43 Hit In House

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- UPDATE: [The Cincinnati Development Fund, the Cincinnati Rowing Club, Miami Township and the Cincinnati World Piano Competiton all have gotten messages this year that they are "Owned by Red Eye. Happy Fucking New Year." The Yellow Springs school system in SW Ohio apparently was hacked 8 days ago. A message was posted saying Red Eye owns you. The info is from Zone H, a website that tracks cybercrime.]

Old Dominion University in Virginia seems to have been hit by the same hackers last summer. Dan's Discoveries did a piece in August about Red Eye Crew -- the photo is their calling card -- and said some of the university hack appeared on Old Dominion screens in Portuguese. Is that a snake eye? It does look reptilian. The House attack struck Republican and Democrats alike. This message appeared on congressional screens: "FUCK OBAMA!! Red Eye CREW !!!!! O RESTO E HACKER !!! by HADES; m4V3RiCk; T4ph0d4 — FROM BRASIL." Politico has more on the story, which is unfolding. Driehaus, D-Oh-01, was hit along with two other Ohio Democrats, Reps. Charlie Wilson and John Boccieri. At this moment (9:57 am) none of their websites are available online. Others still work -- Dennnis Kucinich has a House website, as does John Boehner. FOX News is reporting the Red Eye Crew that claimed responsibly has been involved in other hacks.
