THE MEN IN SUITS have arrested suspected members of Anonymous, according to the US television 'news' network Fox News.
Fox News, which recently confused phone hacking conducted by the now closed News of the World - one of its sister newspapers - with other companies having been hacked, which is an easy mistake to make, if you are a moron, said that three men were picked up by the US federal fuzz this morning.
"The FBI is executing search warrants at the New York homes of three suspected members of notorious hacking group Anonymous early Tuesday morning, FoxNews.com has learned," says the report.
"More than 10 FBI agents arrived at the Baldwin, N.Y., home of Giordani Jordan with a search warrant for computers and computer-related accessories, removing at least one laptop from the premises. The raids at two Long Island, N.Y., homes and one in Brooklyn, N.Y., were ongoing Tuesday morning."
The arrests, said Fox News, were based on allegations concerning the use of distributed denial of service attacks, which we know involve smashing web servers, but Fox might think means spinning the revolving entrance door really, really fast.
Fox News sums up the Anonymous group quite nicely, for a rabidly right wing megaphone, saying, "The Anonymous group is a loose collection of cybersavvy activists inspired by WikiLeaks and its flamboyant head Julian Assange to fight for 'Internet freedom'," it explains, going on to say, "along the way defacing websites, shutting down servers, and scrawling messages across screens web-wide." µ
