Anonymous plans an attack on the Home Office

Wants to stop extraditions

HACKTIVISTS REPRESENTING Anonymous are drumming up support for an attack on the UK Home Office web site.

The attack comes under the Op Trial At Home banner, #optrialathome on Twitter, supports anti-extradition protests for Chris Tappin, Richard O'Dwyer and Gary McKinnon and was announced by a Twitter account called @AnonopUK.

A flyer that is being circulated asks that people "charge their lasers" for an attack on 7 April at 9pm. It gives the Home Office web address as well as its IP address.

The extradition requests have been the source of a lot of controversy, as it seems that the UK is prepared to do all that it can to concede to US demands.

These arguments and the cases are ongoing, but today the Home Office is named in association with plans to snoop on citizens emails, text messages and web use. That annoyed a different Anonymous Twitter account this morning, and it warned the UK Government to expect it.

Operation Trial At Home does not seem to be related to this, but its timing might help the cause. µ
