FBI swoops on Anonymous

Searches 40 people's houses
The Untouchables have swooped on the homes of people suspected of being members of Anonymous.

More than 40 search warrants were executed across the United States on Thursday, the bureau announced. This follows the arrest in the UK of five men who allegedly participated in the Anonymous group’s denial of service attacks on Visa, Mastercard, Paypal and Amazon in mid-December.

Anonymous said its attacks were to punish financial-service companies’ who prohibited donations to Wikileaks. Amazon was also targeted after it kicked Wikileaks off its web-hosting service.

The FBI seems to want to make an example of those who conduct DDoS attacks. They say that it is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, as well as exposing participants to significant civil liability,” the FBI said in a press release.

However the Untouchables did not seem to arrest anyone after the searches.
