” You can see the tag line appearing (at the time of
writing) on MIT subdomain (cogen.mit.edu) along with the well known
symbol of anonymous. If you are not an active Internet user then you
might find this weird but if you know something about hacking then
you might know the anonymous hackers and their symbol.

Yes, this particular domain has been
hacked and defaced by some hacker and they have written their message
on the domain name. “Remember THE DAY WE FIGHT BACK” this message
pointing towards Aaron Swartz, who has actively participated against
SOPA and PIPA censorship laws.

Not long after Reddit Co-founder and
activist Aaron Swartz submitted suicide on January 11, 2013,
Anonymous hackers defaced the site of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (MIT). Right away, one year after his expiration.

The defacement is the part of Operation
Last Resort (#OPLASTRESORT), the particular campaign begun soon there
after Swartz’s dying.
