Anonymous… A shadowy group with no faces, no names, no leader or base of operations. Some call them freedom fighters, others – terrorists. The ‘hacktivist’ collective has been in the news regularly over the past few years, thanks to their recurring attacks on the big Internet players, corporations and governments.
You’ve heard of them, but do you really know how, against whom and in the name of what is Anonymous waging its virtual wars?
