NATO recently condemned the antics of Anonymous, saying that “the longer these attacks persist the more likely countermeasures will be developed, implemented, the groups will be infiltrated and perpetrators persecuted.” Anonymous didn’t like that.
According to CNET, Anonymous replied via online channels with the following statement:
“Finally, do not make the mistake of challenging Anonymous,” warned Anonymous in its message. “Do not make the mistake of believing you can behead a headless snake. If you slice off one head of Hydra, ten more heads will grow in its place. If you cut down one Anon, ten more will join us purely out of anger at your trampling of dissent.”
I can’t say I’m not entertained by that response, but given the US position on cybercrimes, it’ll be curious to see how far Anonymous will really go with their activism-minded hacking sprees. [Nato and Anonymous via Cnet]
