Mysterious internet “hacktivist” group Anonymous has announced that it plans to attack Iran tomorrow in support of the country’s anti-regime “green” movement. They’re trying to take advantage of International Worker’s Day to instigate a new wave of protests. Exactly what the attack will consist of is still unknown; in the past, Anonymous has pulled off denial-of-service attacks as well as stealing private data and code. This one is scheduled to begin at 1 a.m. EST.
Now, are we all waiting with bated breath? Will update this story when something happens.
