FBI swoops on Anonymous

Written by Nick Farell

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.

Note that there are no known investigations in to the DDOS attacks against Wikileaks which was what started all of this to begin with.

Dumb people will blame the government while smart people will blame those who have infiltrated our turning them in to the governments.
