Video: Boston Police news website back after Anonymous hack

The website was down for almost a week after the hack by a group that claimed retaliation for the Occupy Boston encampment dismantling.

Boston Police have relaunched its news website - BPDnews.com - after it was hacked in to and shut down by the group Anonymous.

And the relaunch features a video that shows BPD found a humorous side to the incident.

The tongue-in-cheek video shows interviews with high-ranking officers and their reactions to learning that that site had been hacked.

"Normally I sleep pretty well, but since the site went down I haven't slept a wink," said one officer.

Police have said that federal authorities are looking in to the online attack.

Anonymous posted a video and message on the police website last week that said it was retaliating for the breaking down of Occupy Boston's Dewey Square camp.

The video can be seen below:
