Hacking has been around almost as long as internet has been around. And of course while black-hat hackers have caused a number of major damages, white-hat hackers have actually helped build a better internet. Anonymous is a well known activist-hackers community which has launched a number of major recent attacks online. In a recent statements, Anonymous has joined hands with Team Poison to rip the banks of their money and hand it to the poor – Robin Hood style!
Although Anonymous is known for many mainstream internet hacks, it has also served some causes which are commendable. In fact, nearly all the hacks launched by Anonymous are politically correct, at least in its philosophy. For instance, in a recent attack, Anonymous hackers took down hundreds of child-related porn websites and revealed the identity of it’s most active members. Moves like these certainly act to make internet a better and safer place.
Serving the poor by robbing the banks:
In the latest hacktivist move by Anonymous, it has teamed with another hacking group, Team Poison to launch ‘Operation Robin Hood.’ What exactly is Operation Robin Hood?
“Operation Robin Hood will take credit cards and donate to the 99 percent as well as various charities around the globe. The banks will be forced to reimburse the people their money back”, proclaimed a member of Team Poison in a video.
So the whole concept of this operation and it’s intent is to deploy a number of attacks on banks and loot their money and then dole it out to ‘noble’ causes. No statements from any government or bank has surfaced in response to the video by Anonymous.
