No cyberattack is funny when it impacts government or commercial services. This event, Idaho Legislature website hacked by Italian hacktivist group, shows that an attack can come from almost anywhere and there doesn't need to be a direct link to your function or theirs.

It ended up being a minor disruption without impact to data, but the vulnerability of "everyone" is on display.
