Israel made this a bizarrely internet-publicised war, which I can’t say garnered any favours with me, but it looks like it’s pissed Anonymous off too. The hacking collective has gone on the offensive, kicking down sites and spray-painting walls, in the only way hackers know how. Looks like Anonymous has your back, Palestine.
“To the people of Gaza and the “Occupied Territories”, know that Anonymous stands with you in this fight.”
It’s all very well, defacing sites and DDoSing services, but when people are getting killed out there, somehow hacking like this seems a bit, well, weak. But it certainly adds to what’s undoubtedly one of the most bizarre wars in modern times. [Anonymous via Forbes]
