Anonymous Takes Out Boeing Website

Two technology trade associations, TechAmerica and USTelecom, and one of the world’s largest defense contractors, Boeing, had their web sites knocked offline by Anonymous for their support and connections to the controversial CISPA bill.

Two technology trade associations, TechAmerica and USTelecom, and one of the world’s largest defense contractors, Boeing, had their web sites knocked offline by Anonymous for their support and connections to the controversial CISPA bill. They are the latest in a string of targets selected by those supporting Anonymous’ Operation Defense (#OpDefense).

Anonymous announced "Tango Down boeing.com by #Anonymous for #OpDefense" on its YourAnonNews Twitter feed at about 3:45 p.m. EDT Tuesday. Boeing's website was down for most of the following two hours, returning at about 5:40 p.m. ET, but had some trouble again Wednesday morning.

Anonymous makes their anti-CISPA stance clear in the video above:

"CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011, and those who have crafted this bill have now become sworn enemies of Anonymous. We will unleash the worst pain on those who threaten our existence. You will neither eat, nor sleep, without hearing our voices through your walls. Your actions will be monitored. We will march through the streets. We will destroy your reign of terror on our domain. You will cease to exist. This is not a threat, this is a promise."

Also according to the video, the "next attacks coming up soon."
