On Monday, CIO.com reported that the notorious hacker group Anonymous which has been behind many high-profile attacks, including one that paralyzed tourism and info sites about Orlando, was now setting its sites on Google+. Its user group had been booted from the new social network, and in retaliation, the hackers’ news site Your Anon News reported that it knew of an “operation” targeting G+.
The next day, Anonymous was raided by the FBI, and by their counterparts in the U.K. Sixteen alleged hackers were arrested. OK, we realize it’s probably just a coincidence. Or could it be that the federal agents really like their hangouts…?
