Well with the claim of Anonymous‘ attempt to take down the internet a couple days ago(which they denied), one of the words that keep popping up is
“…the use of computers and computer networks as a means of protest to promote political end”hacktivist. According to wikipedia defines hacktivism as
This is not to be confused with hacktavision, which is hacking your old activision game console to play mame games.
I am curious as to what these people are protesting as all I ever seem to hear is that they are attacking someone to protest something. I personally don’t feel that a protest has as much weight as individuals publicly voicing there opinions. Anonymity seems to fall into obscurity in my opinion. Now if you tell everyone who you are and still hacktivate an attack, always remember, it’s the martyr that gets all the credit.
