Has anyone heard about "Anonymous (group)"?

Anonymous is a decentralized international hacktivist group that is widely known for its various DDOS cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions & government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology.

Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain.[2][3][4] Anonymous members (known as "Anons") can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta.[5] However this may not always be the case, as some of the collective prefer to instead cover their face without using the well-known mask as a disguise.


They are a trend in Nicaragua now.

Many are grateful to them for this, most of the sites mentioned are down now

That is sort of like the moral question of "Is it moral to steal money from a drug dealer found dead in the woods?" I have mixed emotions about what "Anonymous" does.

Here are 5 of the most dangerous hackers to ever walk the streets of the Internet !   ( Anonymous is a decentralized international hacktivist group )






Here are top 10 hacking and hacktivist groups that changed the world like no one else.

Hacking has grown massively in the past few years. What merely started out as internet pranks on personal computers has now grown into a nexus of activities like holding large corporations to ransom over their critical data or shutting down the entire government and non-government organizationsÂ’ services for long periods. Hacking is no more a skilled coderÂ’s hobby, for it has become a full-fledged profession.

As hacking has grown, like-minded hackers have come together to work in alliance and form hacking groups, some of which are really notorious and have attracted the attention of the world. Some attract attention due to their good deeds while most attract attention for their notoriety. We cover 10 of the most notorious hacking groups of all times here.


Famous with the general populace for their vendetta (pun intended) against ISIS while donning the Guy Fawkes masks, Anonymous is an open online creation group spread in many parts of the world. They stand against the injustice of all kinds, keeping with their personality of vigilantes that becomes apparent with their Guy Fawkes masks.

They acted against the Church of Scientology, hacked the Pentagon, attacked Visa, PayPal and MasterCard for refusing payments to WikiLeaks, and took down some websites belonging to ISIS. Many individuals from countries like Netherlands, USA, UK, Australia, Spain, and Turkey have been arrested for being allegedly belonging to Anonymous.
