Anonymous to launch Operation USA

Anonymous is interested in targeting industrial control systems, according to a recent bulletin by Homeland Security`s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center.

But the authors say the hacktivists “have not demonstrated a capability to inflict damage to these systems, instead choosing to harass and embarrass their targets using rudimentary attack methods.” They do believe, though, that Anonymous has “the ability to impact aspects of critical infrastructure that run on common, Internet accessible systems (such as web-based applications and windows systems) by employing tactics such as denial of service.”

Surprisingly – or not – this latest issue of the NCCIC’s bulletin coincides with Anonymous’ announcement of a new protest campaign ” Operation USA ” scheduled for launch Oct. 22, the “Day of Justice”. It is interesting to note that the press release doesn’t mention any cyber attack, hacking operation or Web site defacement, but promotes “marches and demonstrations to be held nationwide” instead.

In the light of recent frictions within the group, will the factions operating under the same moniker support each other and continue the cyber attacks too?

Or not?
