RCMP website down, unknown if connected to threat by Anonymous

The RCMP’s website is down, but the cause is not clear.

However it comes a day after the cyber group Anonymous vowed to target the force to raise awareness about an RCMP officer involved in a shooting incident in B.C.

Anonymous has no identifiable leadership but online posters who say they’re members have claimed responsibility in the past for hacking incidents including the shutdown of the city of Cleveland’s
website last fall.

Public Safety Minister Stephen Blaney’s office and the Mounties did not immediately respond to questions about the RCMP website.

The website of Canada’s spy agency, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, was recently taken down by a cyberattack.

Police in the northern B.C. community of Dawson Creek shot and killed a man last Thursday who they say refused to comply with directions.
