Hackers operating as part of Anyonymous have responded to the suicide of SOPA activist and programmer Aaron Swartz by embedding a game into several US websites, accessible by inputting the fabled Konami Code.
Naked Security reports that Anonymous hacktivists first targeted the website of the US Sentencing Commission. Once completed the hack allowed visitors to access a hidden game of retro arcade classics Asteroids on the website by entering the ‘Konami Code’ – that’s up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right (on the cursor keys) then B, A and finally enter.
The code has since been discovered to be active on other government websites, too. The Code appears in hundreds of games, both from Konami and other third party publishers.
