+ - Anonymous attacks UK government websites in 'Operation Free Assange'-> 1

Submitted by Qedward
Qedward (2499046) writes "The Ministry of Justice has experienced problems with the availability of its website following a denial-of-service (DDoS) attack by Anonymous, which is demanding freedom for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who was granted asylum by Ecuador last week.

The hacker group said that it had taken down the Justice Ministry website as part of its 'Operation Free Assange'. The British police have stated that they will arrest Assange if he comes out of the Ecuador embassy in London, where he has taken refuge since June, to extradite him to Sweden where he is wanted for investigations into alleged sexual misconduct.

Other government sites, including the Department for Work and Pensions, the Home Office and the Prime Minister's site, have also been targeted"
