Expect Us 2013: Anonymous issues statement warning of cyberattacks

By -

The hacking community Anonymous has recently issued a statement/warning about their future cyberattacks in 2013 against the US, Syria and other governments.


This is one of the most feared hacking community and now they have released a statement of their future cyberattacks in 2013. These people mean a lot about their beliefs and fear no one. The hacking group Anonymous have recently released a statement issuing more trouble for the governments in 2013.


The group is promoting their beliefs and inviting everyone to join them on IRC and Twitter for the latest updates and official news.



Along with the statement, the group created a video (above) that boasts of its campaigns and exploits carried out in 2012. The video details the group’s temporary shutdown of the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI, Universal Music, and the Motion Picture Association of America’s Web sites in protest of the U.S. government’s indictment of the operators of popular file-hosting site MegaUpload.


The video also shows newsreels of Anonymous’ campaign against Syrian government Web sites because of that government’s alleged shutdown of the Internet, along with Anonymous'”cyberwar” against the Israeli government in protest of government attacks on Gaza. The group also recounts its hack into the Web site of the Westboro Baptist Church in response to plans by the controversial church to picket the funerals of those massacred at the elementary school in Newtown, Conn.


“The operations which are listed in the video are only examples, there are far more operations. Some of them still running, like Operation Syria. We are still here.”


Despite the hacking group’s threats, some believe that the collective may not actually make a big impact in the online world in the coming year. Security firm McAfee Labs released its “2013 Threat Predictions” last week and claimed the decline of Anonymous.
