25 arrested in Annonymous group

After Interpol announced the attacks, its website failed to load, a fact acknowledged by Anonymous on Twitter with the message "interpol.int DOWN."

Who or what is Anonymous?

The Spanish police website also failed to load after it announced police had arrested four people in the country as part of the international action.



FBI, Scotland Yard hacked Spanish police said the four suspects were accused of carrying out denial of service attacks, defacing the websites of political parties, institutions and companies, as well as publishing personal information relating to high-profile figures.



FBI & Scotland Yard phone call hacked One of those arrested was a 16-year-old girl, who was allegedly part of international "sector 404," a hacking group which is believed to be linked to the attacks claimed by Anonymous. Police said the girl had been released to the custody of her parents.



'Hacktivist' group Anonymous strikes back Two of the others had been detained, while the third was released on bail, police said.



'Anonymous' confront police Anonymous made headlines in 2010 when it carried out distributed denial of service or DDOS attacks targeting MasterCard, Visa and PayPal websites.

At the time, Anonymous claimed that it was lashing out at the corporations because they had stopped doing business with WikiLeaks, the publisher huge tranches of confidential information under the leadership of founder and editor Julian Assange.

Since then, the group has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks, notably claiming that it attacked government websites in Tunisia and Egypt as a way to show support for protesters during Arab Spring uprisings.

A video -- laced with Anonymous' typical computer-voiceover -- appeared online during the January 2011 revolution. It threatened Egyptian authorities if they attempted to censor Internet access and other freedoms.

"Anonymous is you. You will not be denied your right to free speech, free press, free association and your universal right to freely access information both in real life and on the Internet," the voice said.

Anonymous had a hand in organizing and agitating in the Occupy movement throughout 2011. Protesters have been seen at Occupy demonstrations across the globe wearing Anonymous' distinctive Guy Fawkes mask.

This year, the group claimed to have posted an internal FBI conference call discussing investigations into Anonymous. It also posted e-mails that it claimed were from an adviser to the Syrian president, suggesting how Bashar al-Assad could downplay violence in the country when he was interviewed by Barbara Walters last summer.

Forget that. These jerks walked away with a lot of my personal information when they hacked Sony. For a few weeks there it was like every other day I was getting emails that they were hacking websites where I'd created accounts.

I know they have a point with some of this and that is to identify and publicize security holes and initially it was done on sites they wanted improved because they liked them but I don't trust them to destroy that data and I fully expect my account information is sitting on hard drives in Russia somewhere.

Blah, Blah, Blah

Anyone can call them self "Anonymous" and use there tag lines and calling cards these days. That causes a problem in hunting down people responsible for "big jobs" where real damage is done.

The Sony job wasn't really their MO. However, Sony's Playstation Network was really badly secured (if you even call it that). The people in charge of Sony's entertainment network security at their home office in Indiana were better off doing security in a Walmart Parking Lot.

A motorcyclist is the only one who understands why a dog rides with it's head out the window.

Really, that isn't what I've read. In fact, I think one of the posts above states that nearly anyone can call themselves Anonymous. Sony was one of the 1st major hacks in this recent trend and what I understand of the situation those involved eventually morphed into what eventually became Anonymous.

Well I think the 1st poster in that site wrote it best:

"So anonymous members of Anonymous anonymously attacked Sony's Playstation Network."

While I appreciate a good hack, Anonymous is on the same level as the organizations they denounce and attack. Hypocrisy at its finest.

Another point to make is that "Anonymous" has come to be associated with groups that are not Anonymous.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
