Anonymous Takes Down CIA, Various Law Enforcement Websites In Alabama
Hacking initiative Anonymous was at it again on Friday when the group claimed attacks that took down the CIA website and various police and government websites throughout the state of Alabama.
According to the group personal information for 46,000 people were obtained with many of the groups attacks focused on the city of Mobile.
The group claimed along with their attacks that action was taken because of Alabama’s “racist legislation” regarding illegal immigrants.
In its statement the group proclaimed:
“You complain about immigrants costing the state money, however, you do not care about spending the same money to protect your own legal citizens.”
The group has promised to destroy the personal information it obtained, specifically social security and phone numbers.
