Hacker Group Anonymous Takes Down NISD Over Student Tracking

HotHardware: The Northside Independent School District (NISD) in San Antonio sparked a controversy earlier this year when it rolled out its "Student Locator Project," an initiative that requires students to wear ID badges with embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) chips. NISD's website is down today, and a member of the hacking organization known as Anonymous reached out HotHardware to take credit for the outage. (Anonymous, Hacking, RFID, Web)
