The group of internet hacktivists Anonymous took down the official website of Virgin Media on Tuesday.
The Virgin Media website is still currently unavailable.
Earlier this morning the group warned against a "surprise attack" against "Governments and Corporations of the world."
The group posted a statement in which it explains how they associated with Lulz Security, commonly abbreviated as LulzSec, a computer hacker group that claimed responsibility for several high profile attacks, including the compromise of user accounts from Sony Pictures in 2011.
Hello there international Governments and Corporations of the world.
Once upon a time there was an organisation called Lulz Security formed from Anonymous so that the citizens of the world had a last line of defense against your corruption. Last year that line was broken using methods you have perfected well against your own citizens threats, intimidation and blackmail.
This breach has let you continue your relentless pursuit of power and money
This breach has let you continue your relentless pursuit of power and money unopposed to pursue even greater further abuses of democracy and justice. Today we can announce former members of LulzSec and Anonymous have come together to reform the line Anonymous Team. Be warned this time the line will not break, this time the line will hold firm when you try to divide us. This time we will fight you not only on the internet but in the street and in.
Expect us from everywhere, at any time and without mercy…
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
