International hacking collective, Anonymous, have vowed to continue targeting the UK government following their successful take down of the Home Office website at the weekend in protest of plans to extradite UK citizens accused of computer hacking to the United States. These citizens include including Pentagon hacker Gary McKinnon, businessman Christopher Tappin and TVShack's Richard O'Dwyer.
The group have now called on followers to target the government's intelligence agency GCHQ this coming Saturday in opposition to government proposals to allow the agency to monitor email, social media communications, what websites you visit and your text messages. Although the government has ensured that such a change will not take place for at least a year if at all, the poster for the next hacking attack reads 'Fight Online Privacy'.
As well as calling Anonymous members to 'FIRE your lasers' this Saturday, they have also vowed to carry out attacks every weekend.
The DDoS attack on the Home Office was one of the simplest methods employed by internet hackers, if such a tool was used successfully on the GCHQ, this would be embarrassing to say the least!
