The hacktivist group has gone on a rampage over the weekend as they took down the official website of the Interpol, CIA and many others.
It began last Friday with a tweet from the group’s Twitter account. The tweet read, “CIA Tango down.”
The CIA website has been up and down over the weekend as Anonymous used Denial of Service or DDOS attacks to shake up the agency’s website.
The next on their list were the police and government servers in Alabama. Anonymous claims the attack in the name of “your recent racist legislation in an attempt to punish immigrants as criminals.” This post was placed in a pastebay account. The stolen data had names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, criminal records and plate numbers.
They went on to attack the Mexican government for their proposed legislation similar to that of SOPA/PIPA of the US. Sites that were taken down were the Mexican states, Interior Ministry and email addresses of Mexican Mining Chamber were posted online.
Anonymous also hacked the US Census Bureau and the Italian car making giant Fiat. Another hacking group, Greyhatz, also did their damage on other websites.
