Anonymous Having Another Crack at GCHQ This Weekend

By Gary Cutlack on at

The Saturday night hack-a-thon organised by Anonymous will continue this week, with UK-based members of the collective having another go at DDoS-ing the UK government into submission over its controversial extradition rules.

The target this weekend will be the Home Office again, which was taken offline two weeks ago after the initial wave of denial-of-service attacks, plus the government's GCHQ office, which survived the second anonymous onslaught last weekend.

Whether taking some boring official sites offline for a few hours every Saturday night is likely to achieve anything is another matter, but at least it's helping get its message across in the media. [ZDnet]
