\\\'Hackers have broken into one of the computer networks of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

A group calling itself the Greek Security Team left a rogue webpage describing the technicians responsible for computer security at the giant atom smasher as “schoolkids” — but reassuring scientists that they did not want to disrupt the experiment.\\\'

Does this touch LHC@home ?

Nope. LHC@home is at a university in England someplace. Cern is in Europe. It\'s a just a website defacement.


I'm not the LHC Alex. Just a number cruncher like everyone else here.
