U.K. government has attracted the ire of human rights groups around the globe for trying to nab Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks. Now, the online hacktivists group, Anonymous, has claimed that it has attacked a number of U.K. government sites over the Assange case.

Currently, Julian Assange is in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Ecuador has granted asylum to Assange, much to the chagrin of U.K. authorities. However, the moment he leaves the Ecuadorian embassy, he would no longer be within diplomatic building and thus, the U.K. police can arrest him. So although he is free for now, he is in a kind of house arrest.

And that is precisely what has instigated a storm of scorn against U.K. authorities. Anonymous has also jumped the bandwagon, having attacked a number of U.K. government’s websites. The attack was done as a sign of solidarity with Assange. The group launched attacks against the U.K. Justice of Department website and Prime Minister’s Number 10 website. Also attacked the Department of Work and Pension’s website. Anonymous used its usual DDoS attacks to disrupt these sites and force a temporary shutdown.

The Justice Department confirmed that its website was facing problems and issued a statement saying, “This is a public information website and no sensitive data is held on it. No other Ministry of Justice systems have been affected.¬†Measures put in place to keep the website running mean that some visitors may be unable to access the site intermittently.”
