‘Anonymous’ declares war on Orlando
The next target for the hacktivist group known as Anonymous may be the city of Orlando.
“This is a declaration of war,” the group wrote in a press release.
“Operation Orlando” will take down a different Orlando-related website every day with distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks. The first target appeared to be Orlando Florida Guide, which is not even owned by the city.
The attacks are reportedly retaliation for Orlando’s decision to arrest members of a non-profit group for feeding the homeless.
Update (6/28/2011 12:30 p.m. ET): Anonymous has reportedly shut down the Orlando Chamber of Commerce website.
