Former Bush campaign official indicted

A former Republican Party bigwig in New England has been indicted on charges of orchestrating a low-tech version of a denial-of-service attack.

Internet DoS attacks, which overload a Web site's servers and cause them to be temporarily inaccessible, have targeted everything from to the SCO Group and eBay.

Now James Tobin, who was the top Bush campaign official for New England and formerly the Republican National Committee's regional director, is being accused of mounting a similar kind of attack on the phone networks of five Democratic Party offices during the November 2002 election.

Not sure it is worth posting this one, since a story of this magnitude must have been all over the papers and the network news... right?
