“Anonymous” attack disrupting Ferguson city government
FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Protests in the streets have not been the only disruption in the city of Ferguson since the shooting of Michael Brown by police. A cyber attack by the hacker group “Anonymous” has done more damage than any bottle or brick.
The threats from “Anonymous” came shortly after the protests surrounding Brown’s death started. In a video released on YouTube, the group was specific about what it intended to do.
“We will take every web based asset of your departments and governments offline,” the robotic voice said over video associated with the Brown case. “That is not a threat, it is a promise. Attacking the protestors will result in the release of personal information on every single member of the Ferguson Police Department.”
It quickly became clear this was no joke.
