On Tuesday, the hacker group temporarily shut down the web-pages of the Presidency, Interior Ministry, Justice Ministry and more.
In a second wave following the Colombian Independence Day attacks, hacker group “Anonymous” temporarily disabled the websites of the Colombian Presidency, Ministries of Interior and Justice, Security Department DAS, and the political party known as “The U.”
The modus operandi hasn’t changed; the cyber-bandits flood the servers with service requests, so many that the system overloads, and crashes.
Anonymous implied that the objective behind these cyber attacks is to protest against internet restrictions and content censorship imposed by the Colombian government on citizens, and outlined in the controversial “Lleras Law,” after Justice Minister Germán Vargas Lleras.
