FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – “Anonymous,” a group of “Hacktivists,” hacked the City of Ferguson’s website Sunday night.

According to officials, none of the city’s e-mails were working Monday morning. Anticipating a problem, the mayor of Ferguson had the IT Department take down all personal information from the site on Saturday.

On Sunday, “Operation Ferguson” tweeted that “Anonymous” would only launch cyber-attacks in Ferguson in direct response to any police abuse of protesters. “Operation Ferguson” has since been suspended from Twitter. 

“Anonymous” has targeted the United States government and large corporations in the past.
