Anonymous has staked their claim on another website takedown. This time the group says they knocked out the Federal Trade Commission’s consumer business protection center and the National Consumer Protection Week website. Instead of the usual plain Jane government blandness, visitors were treated to a video filled with “violent German language”. Honestly though, doesn’t all German sound violent?
Anon took down the CIA website last week and are continuing on a war path to strike down the Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, other wise known as ACTA. ACTA is seen as a global version of SOPA and PIPA and has been signed by a number of countries, including the U.S. and Canada. Various groups have been protesting it since its inception, Anon did their usual firebombing of websites. I’m not sure why they picked these sites though.
If you want to help protest ACTA, there are plenty of groups out there looking for your support. Lend them a hand if you can.
