Thomas Francis reports:

In a brief telephone conversation this afternoon, Nazi historian David Irving confirmed that his websites and private email account were attacked by hackers opposed to his writings of World War II. He told me that he’s been in contact with the FBI in hopes of bringing the hackers to justice. “We’re asking authorities to investigate this felony — it’s a federal crime,” Irving said.

The website irvingbooks.com has been up since 1998, he told me, and is registered in Florida. It’s the first time it’s been hacked. Irving doesn’t know how they did it. Nor does he have a clue who’s behind the name “anti-fascist hackers.”

Read more on New Times. The contents of the e-mails have been posted on a number of web sites by now.
