ANONYMOUS are allegedly responsible of hacking Spanish Police, banks, governments. Three arrested in Spain.

Spanish police arrested three men suspected to be members of the hacker group Anonymous on Friday, charging them with organizing cyber attacks against the websites of Sony Corp, banks and governments — but not the recent massive hacking of PlayStation gamers.

Anonymous responded by threatening to retaliate for the arrests: “We are Legion, so EXPECT US,” the group said on its official Twitter feed.

Following the arrest of three of its alleged members last week, the hacktivist group known as “Anonymous” claimed on Sunday to have attacked the website of the Spanish National Police over the weekend.

Anonymous said it launched against the Spanish National Police website on Saturday a successful “distributed denial of service” (DDoS) attack, which is an orchestrated attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended user.

“The attack is a direct response to the Friday arrests of three individuals alleged to be associated with acts of cyber civil disobedience attributed to Anonymous,” it said in a blog post.

It said the DDoS attack, codenamed Operation Policia, paralyzed the police site —www.policia.es — for hours on Saturday, making it inaccessible to visitors.

But as of Sunday afternoon (Manila time), the Spanish police site was accessible and appeared to be normal.

Spanish police alleged the three “hacktivists” helped organize an attack that temporarily shuttered access to some Sony websites. They were not linked to two massive cyber attacks against Sony’s Playstation Network that resulted in the theft of information from more than 100 million customers.
