Between 2010 and 2011 so far had a lot of news related to hacker attacks and cyber-activism in general. Anonymous was one of the stakeholder groups in much of the news, and for this reason the main security agencies stan world and putting an eye on potential members .
Hours ago it was learned that the FBI had arrested 16 people
, allegedly affiliated with the team behind the face mask of Guy Fawkes, in California, New Jersey and Florida. Reportedly there was a major operation by the intelligence material collected over months of research.
In the published information indicated that 14 of the apparent hackers were arrested on similar charges, while the remaining two were captured by individual criminal complaints.
There is little doubt that the U.S. government has seriously taken the initiative to cut operating Anonymous on its territory. Anyway, it is noteworthy that the U.S. is not the only country is “hunting” hackers belonging to this prestigious group.

Ghohim was very immersed in creating campaigns through Facebook and worked with Mohamed ElBaradei , a leading political opponents of the current African leader. However, it is unknown whether these activities were 100% personal or if they were supported by the low by the search engine company .
Many maneuvers Google
linked to the policy of some countries give think … but we can not say that Mountain View was responsible for political and social unrest in Egypt , because we would be crossing the line.
