Anonymous Issues Response to Spanish Police
The press release was issued at 6:10 PM EST on Twitter. It defends the use of distributed denial of service attacks, or DDoSing, calling it the equivalent of a peaceful sit-in protest. Presumably, the analogy references the fact that a DDoS attack is not necessarily accompanied by a seizure of private data. However, laws which prohibit the practice focus on the fact it prevents legitimate users, sometimes paying subscribers, from accessing the target website.
Anonymous also uses the release to reiterate the fact that it has no leaders, and thus, the capture of the three men in Spain will have little effect on its activities moving forward. Anonymous suggests that the arrests will instead galvanize those sympathetic to the group’s cause.
