Anonymous takes out Spanish coppers website

Written by Nick Farell

Vendetta, vendetta
Hacker outfit  Anonymous may have bitten off more than it could chew over the weekend. It made a much publised assault on Spain's national police force and knocked over the website for an hour.

Spanish newspaper El Mundo said the group had warned police in a statement that it planned to disable the website at some time on Saturday. The attacks follow the arrest of  three suspected members of the group on Friday on charges of cyber attacks against targets including the websites of Sony, governments, businesses and banks.

It is thought the trio were involved in the hacking of PlayStation network. However, Anonymous recently denied that the three arrested suspects were a "core group", as the police claimed.

I think they need to be charged ASAP with as many counts as possible, so that laws can be passed quickly to deprive us of some more human rights.

I believe he was being sarcastic :D

Anyhow, good luck placing any charges on these guys because the aftermath may not be pretty.
