Anonymous Is Promising Weekly Hacks Every Friday For Your Protesting Enjoyment

By Sam Gibbs on at

The Anonymous hacking collective has been pretty busy of late protesting against copyright acts like ACTA. Recently it seems the group has been concentrating its firepower on Fridays in what it’s calling #FFF.

Talking to Wired, some of Anonymous have declared the end of the week "Fuck the FBI Friday", although the FBI isn’t the only target – anything governmental seems to be on the field of play.

“Yes, each and every Friday we will be launching attacks… with the specific purpose of wiping as many corrupt corporate and government systems off our internet.”

What’s more is that Anonymous is coming pre-prepared and reportedly has enough compromised servers to fill five month’s worth of #FFFs. The attacks will apparently be a combination of defacements and database attacks, which should have any and all government agencies worried. ACTA and SOPA have woken the beast, and although I can’t agree with their methods, I’m kind of glad. They’re both potentially horrendous pieces of legislation and someone’s got to protest for the good of us all. [Wired]
