Hacking Group Targets Federal Reserve

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – In a video posted on YouTube, hacking group Anonymous threatened to take action against the U.S. Federal Reserve on Tuesday.

In the posted video, Anonymous says they previously requested the resignation of the Fed’s chair Ben Bernanke, but he did not comply.

The group goes on to state, “The Federal Reserve’s policies are systematically looting the country to enrich one-tenth of one percent of the population.” Anonymous concludes by vowing to launch “Operation Empire State Rebellion.”

Most recently, some members of the group were arrested in Spain on suspicion of being connected to the breach of Sony’s PlayStation Network and hacking Spanish banks. Anonymous also recently breached sites belonging to the government of Turkey.
