In the wake of three arrests by the Spanish Police in connection with several attacks on Sony websites, as well as some bank and government websites, but not the PSN outage itself, Anonymous has responded by taking down the Spanish Police website for an hour. The so-called “hacktivist” group has also issued a statement in connection with the DDoD attack.
“Arresting somebody for taking part in a DDoS attack is exactly like arresting somebody for attending a peaceful demonstration in their home town. Anonymous believes this right to peacefully protest is one of the fundamental pillars of any democracy.
“You have not detained three participants of Anonymous. We have no members and we are not a group of any kind. You have, however, detained three civilians expressing themselves,” read the Anonymous message. Although Anonymous claims the strike was a “direct response” to the three arrests, the Spanish Police has not confirmed it as the author.
