ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque officials say the city has experienced a "temporary, brief disruption" to the city website as a technology team prepares for possible cyber-attacks.
City spokeswoman Erin Thompson said late Saturday officials haven't determined the cause of the disruption but a team is monitoring the city's websites.
A group reported to be the international cyber-activist hackers Anonymous last week posted a YouTube video threatening a cyberattack against the city Sunday over a police shooting earlier this month that left a homeless man dead.
The shooting, which was caught out video and sparked a federal investigation, has garnered protests and calls for more reforms within the Albuquerque Police Department.
Chief Administrative Officer Rob Perry said officials were taking the threat seriously and have put in place various security measures.
