FBI Agent: We've Dismantled The Leaders Of Anonymous

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Starting in late 2010, Anonymous captured worldwide attention through a series of attacks against U.S. companies and government agencies, stealing data and defacing or crashing websites.
 
But the arrests last year of five members of Lulz Security, an influential splinter group of hackers, had a “huge deterrent effect” on Anonymous by creating an “added layer of distrust” within the hacking group, according to Austin P. Berglas, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s cyber division in New York.
 
“All of these guys [arrested] were major players in the Anonymous movement, and a lot of people looked to them just because of what they did,” Berglas said in an interview with HuffPost.
 
I hadn’t even thought about it untilI read the article but they are right. We have not eard from Anonymous it seems like in quite awhile.  In hacktivst groups, trust is a huge issue and if that trust is broken, it only makes sense that the hacktivists go underground.  I suspect we will see them again and somepoint though especially considering they have no leaders. Not because the FBI arrsted them but because they have no leaders, thats what it means to be a collective.  They believe their cause just and rightly so.  -Mort

      This is just an attempt for them to demotivate us. They have a handful of people out of millions. Good luck with that FBI.
