The hacktivist group's latest victim is a familiar target
Whether you agree with the tactics of hacker group Anonymous or not, you have to admit they have a good sense of irony. Earlier today, the group hacked an FBI conference call about ... the threat posed by Anonymous.
News of the hack spread quickly via Twitter, and a recording of the call was posted on YouTube. The FBI has confirmed the authenticity of the recording in a statement, saying that they are "hunting those responsible."
The FBI attack is only the latest in the group's #FFF initiative to cause trouble for the government today. The hacker group has been promising via Twitter that "Friday will be a VERY interesting day of #Anonymous."
Earlier in the day, Anonymous took over the Boston police website in retaliation for what Anonymous calls police "brutality against Occupy Boston." The Occupy group was evicted from the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway on December 10, though marches and protests continue.
