Woman Targeted in FBI Raid on "Anonymous" Hackers' Group Tells her Tale
The FBI is apparently quite serious about prosecuting the hackers' group known only as Anonymous for a string of attacks it launched on companies that severed ties with Wikileaks.
Gawker has an interview with a 19 year-old California woman who was the target of one of the FBI's raids.
In it, we learn that:
* The FBI thinks Anonymous is a traditional, hierarchical enterprise, and are trying, perhaps futilely, to "cut the head off the snake."
* They have the idea that the group's members all have Guy Fawkes masks in their closets.
* It's not a good idea to call your little sister a revolutionary, because you never know when the FBI will raid your house at 6 am and take it seriously.
* Her father's really pissed.
Well worth the read, which is here.
