‘Anonymous Indonesia’ Attacks Australian Websites

 

 

” A hacking group calling itself Anonymous Indonesia claims to have attacked over 170 Australian sites, following reports of Australian spying.

The sites affected seemed to belong primarily to small businesses.

On Friday, Indonesia summoned Australia’s ambassador amid reports that its Jakarta embassy was used as part of a US-led spying network.

The reports were based on a US National Security Agency document leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden.”

 

   While we understand the need to protest government spying and generally support Anonymous in these efforts , striking privately held small businesses would seem to be counter-productive .
