Anonymous joins in Wall Street protest

New campaign
Hacking outfit Anonymous has said that it is joining in the anti-Wall Street Protests in New York.

Despite low press coverage the Occupy Wall Street protests gaining traction around the US and now the hacking collective known as Anonymous issued a statement about a planned attack for the financial district. It said that it would specifically target the New York Stock Exchange on October 10 and claims to “erase” the NYSE from the Internet on that day.

Operation Invade Wall Street is likely to be a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on the New York Stock Exchange website. The message was included in a video uploaded to YouTube that’s designed to recruit more hackers to the Operation Invade Wall Street cause.

A one-day DDoS attack would be a nuisance for the officials of the NYSE, it’s unlikely to cause any significant damage. However, there are fears that Anonymous will attack to disrupt the exchange and attempt to harm trading on October 10.

So far Anonymous targets the New York City police department which has been doing its best to kill off any good will it might have gained during September 11, by battering harmless protesters and innocent bystanders. Anonymous has released personal information in regards to the officer using the pepper spray such including his phone number, home address and names of relatives.
