  •  Anonymous Internet Hackers

    Center Director Kirk Hanson commented today on the "Anonymous" hacking collective suspected of launching cyberattacks on various government and business sites in retaliation for attempts to rein in Wikileaks.

    Hanson told ABC7,

    "The Anonymous hackers justify their criminal actions by saying they want to expose secrets and government corruption...

    "It appears that they are still motivated by the same desires, simply to create chaos, and now they've wrapped it in a kind of morally-defensible mission of revealing secret data," Hanson said.
