Falklands Counter Strike: British hackers attack Argentinian developer's website

The Falklands/Malvinas dispute moved into cyberspace this week, as British hackers attacked an Argentine game in which the country's police fight to reclaim the territory from British "terrorists".

Dattatec.com launched the version, or map, for the online first-person shooter game Counter Strike this week.

Its intro reads: "In 1982, Argentines fought the English to recover the sovereignty of their Malvinas islands," with the company saying it left Union flags off the map "out of respect to the honour and glory of those who fell in the Malvinas".
