Cyber Hacking Group 'Anonymous' Will Target the 2012 Election
Hackers unite to take down a major U.S. election
A new video posted to the web revealed plans from hackers group Anonymous to attack the 2012 presidential election. Their first hacking attempt may be during next year’s Iowa Caucus.
An uploaded YouTube video clip called for other hacktavists to join Anonymous to produce an Occupy-style protest at the presidential candidate’s campaign offices in Des Moines, Iowa, RT.com reports. The group also called for help to take down the state’s caucuses, which will begin Jan. 3. This would be the first time the group would attempt to take down a presidential election.
What’s their reason for the hacking attempt? They said both Democrats and Republicans are not worthy of representing Americans.
“Both parties are funded by the same mega corporations,” the narrator said in the video. “The same corporations that fund political campaigns; the same corporations that buy lobbyists; the same corporations that operate the United States governments. ”
"Voting for these parties is unethical," the voice adds. "They have destroyed the American democracy."
The group has already formed online attacks against those who use child pornography websites and Fox News.
