Treasury website hacked

For a short while today a couple of treas.gov websites were hacked, and were reaching out to an attack site in Ukraine.

Btw, you should _not_ mess with the attack site (grepad) … it was dead earlier today, but could easily come back to life.

Although it’s obviously a bummer that they got hacked in the first place, the admins at treasury actually deserve a big shout-out of praise, because they reacted quite quickly, and fixed the problem. Good job guys!

Once again, it shows how anyone can get hacked.
