Lulz penetrates Senate website

Following up on attacks on Sony, InfraGardPBS and a slew of other sites, the hacker group Lulz Security penetrated the website belonging to the U.S. Senate. On its site, the group says: "We don't like the U.S. government very much," and posts a list of file names it says were pilfered from Senate computers.
