Hacktivists linked to "Anonymous" and "AntiSec" have compromised InfraGard's servers yet again.

Elements of the collective said on Friday that they were responsible for defacing the website of the Dayton, Ohio-based chapter of Infragard, a public-private partnership for critical infrastructure protection sponsored by the FBI.

"Today we targeted the Dayton Ohio chapter of InfraGard, the sinister alliance between law enforcement, corporations, and white hat wannabees," the group wrote on the defaced website.

"We broke into their webserver, perused their assorted presentation materials, and finally deleted everything and vandalized their website so we can boost our zone-h rankings."

The Ohio site was replaced with the video for Coolio's 1995 rap hit and a profane message attacking Infragard as a "sinister alliance" between corporations and law enforcement.

InfraGard describes itself as a non-profit organization that serves as a public-private partnership between American businesses and the FBI by sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States.
