Not to be confused with our very own Anonymouse. The hacking group Anonymous took to the net to bring awareness to what to me seems like great outreach program Orlando Food not Bombs.
Hacking group Anonymous took down a tourist-oriented website in Orlando, Florida Tuesday, vowing it will launch a denial-of-service attack on a different tourist-related website every day as a way of protesting the arrests of members of a group helping feed the homeless there. That could make the city the hack-iest place on earth, as well as being home to Disney World, the “happiest place on earth.”
The website hit by Anonymous Tuesday, OrlandoFloridaGuide.com, was an “odd target,” said the Orlando Sentinel: “a privately owned tourism site that has no apparent affiliation with City Hall. That website went offline shortly before 10 a.m.; the group’s news release indicated it would remain disabled until 6 p.m.”
However, as of 1 p.m ET, the site was accessible.
“Everyday we will launch a new DDoS attack on a different target,” said Anonymous on its “Operation Orlando” website. The group also vowed to continue to “email millions of people in 50 countries with the Boycott Orlando campaign message.”
The reason for the anger was the recent arrest of members of Orlando Food Not Bombs, including the group’s president. Orlando Food Not Bombs is described by the Orlando Sentinel as an “anti-poverty group that has been feeding large groups of homeless people in Lake Eola Park.” The effort was “in defiance of a controversial ordinance that requires permits to feed large groups in downtown parks, and limits any group to no more than two permits per year, per park.”
