Anonymous Hacking Attacks on Israel Not Going Well

Website take-downs mostly of small businesses with no connections to IDF

While shells and interceptor missiles started flying between Israel and Gaza, Anonymous did what it does best: swore vengeance against a superpower. It had some swagger at first. But as the days go by, we're seeing a weak, confused Anon, not a group of Internet freedom fighters.

If you need proof, just look at their sad, confused chatroom.

In the hacker brigade's own words, "November 2012 will be a month to remember for the Israeli Defense Forces and internet security forces. Israeli Gov. this is/will turn into a cyberwar." That's a stern threat. And so far, an almost completely hollow one.
