RIGA - A hacker in Latvia has broken into the national news agency website.

The hacker, whose attack on the LETA website has been described as "very professional", posted a message criticizing one of the news agency's stories in which security experts were quoted as saying that small firms are more susceptible to security breaches.

The message admonished the website, accusing it of publishing "defamatory news", "offensive advertorials", and telling LETA not to "try to leap higher than your own ass".
