Infamous Hacking Group 'Anonymous' Targets Koch Brothers

The online activist group behind headline-grabbing attacks in defense of WikiLeaks turned its attention to the Koch Brothers over the weekend, temporarily shutting down the website for their conservative group Americans for Prosperity.

The group, which calls itself 'Anonymous,' garnered national attention earlier this year when they targeted Visa, MasterCard and PayPal, among others, for denying service to the website WikiLeaks. Now they are taking on billionaires David and Charles Koch, according to a press release.

 

“It has come to our attention that the brothers, David and Charles Koch--the billionaire owners of Koch Industries--have long attempted to usurp American Democracy,” Anonymous wrote in the release. “Their actions to undermine the legitimate political process in Wisconsin are the final straw. Starting today we fight back.”

Anonymous called for boycott of all Koch Brothers paper products, including Brawny paper towels and Dixie Cups.
