PostSubject: Hackers Back Away From Threat To Mexican Cartel    Wed Nov 02, 2011 9:42 pm

The hacker group "Anonymous" announced an operation last month that targeted the Zetas, one of Mexico's most dangerous drug cartels.

In the past Anonymous has gone after tech firms like Sony, authoritarian governments across North Africa, even B.A.R.T. (Bay Area Rapid Transit) in San Francisco.
They have been known to release personal data and/or overwhelm sites with requests, causing the servers to overload and shut the site down (also known as a DDOS attack).

Before the threat to the Zetas, they set a date to take down Facebook recently, as well.
Quote :
"About a month ago, according to Forbes, a member of Anonymous said he had information on people who worked with the cartel and threatened to out them."

Although they received counter-threats from the cartel, who apparently hired their own security experts to track the hackers down, "which could have resulted in 'abduction, injury and death" for anyone it traced,' there are still a few who may not back down.

Quote :
PC Magazine points out something important: Anonymous is a decentralized group and anyone really can join the group, so the magazine says #OpCartel, as the operation has been dubbed on Twitter, is in disarray but not off:

"This #OpCartel is extremely risky, so we advise new anons to stay out of it. Please join only if you have enough experience," a Twitter user known as @Sm0k34n0n tweeted yesterday. Earlier today, he also tweeted that stopping the #OpCartel movement would mean aligning yourself with the Zetas.

Seems kind of like a personal vendetta to me. Like someone's brother got shot cause he was in the way of the Zetas and now he wants revenge on them.
