Anonymous Takes Down Nissan’s Website

Tech mobilizerAnonymous hacking collective has a large army of self-identified hackers spread all over the world. The group is currently working on multiple political campaigns and fighting ISIS on social media. In another not-so-famous protest attack, Anonymous is continuing its anti-whaling campaign against Japan.

Well, it seems that Anonymous isn’t planning to slow down. The group has taken down the global website of the Japanese automobile maker Nissan. As a result, the websites nissan.co.jp and nissan-global.com are still offline at the time of publication of this news article.

In the past, the group has fired its DDos Guns on the government that were directly involved in the whaling operation. Back in December, when the hacking group started attacking the Japanese websites in full strength, the Japanese police revealed that Anonymous has attacked about 100 websites in Japan since September. Talking about the big names, the personal website of the Japanese Prime Minister was also targeted.

This recent DDoS attack on Nissan’s website is being seen as a change in group’s strategy. Earlier the hacking collective targeted small websites and government officials — now it seems interested in big players.

In an official statement from Nissan, it was said — “Because of a potential distributed denial of service attack, we are temporarily suspending service on our websites to prevent further risks.”
