It looks like not only companies are being targeted by cyber attacks from the group “Anonymous”. According to recent reports, anonymous hacker collective known as Anonymous, will be launching an attack on Malaysia’s government website. While it wasn’t explicitly mentioned what was the main reason behind the attack, it has been speculated to be a response against the government’s recent decision to ban filesharing sites such as Megaupload and torrent trackers like The Pirate Bay from being accessed in the country.
The ruling has yet to be made official, but people were unhappy about the censorship and the folks at Anonymous obviously heard. The attack will go down at 12.30PM PT tomorrow (3.30AM June 15th in Malaysia) and has been codenamed “Operation Malaysia”. No word on whether these are actual threats, but I guess we’ll find out in a few hours. Hit the break to watch a video about the upcoming attack:
