Anonymous: DDoS Trick “Reprehensible”By: Zach Walton - January 20, 2012
Anonymous doesn’t take too kindly to people messing with their image and they’re looking to find those responsible.
If you remember earlier today, we wrote about a dirty tactic that would make hapless bystanders responsible for the DDoS attacks that took down multiple Web sites yesterday during #OpMegaUpload.
Now Anonymous is saying that this was not their intention and does not endorse the use of such tools. They want everybody who uses a DDoS attack to know what they are doing and the legal ramifications of such a move.
They do, however, say that those who were unwittingly contributing to the DDoS attacks yesterday did not make up much of the traffic attacking Web sites.
We’ll have more on Anonymous as this story will obviously develop over the weekend with their threats of #OpGlobalBlackout.
