Hacking the hacktivist: The inside scoop on how Anonymous works

Hacking the hacktivist: The inside scoop on how Anonymous works by GovLoop Insights
2011 may very well be the year of Anonymous -- the hactivist group took down the Justice Department website, Stratfor, mastercard, defense contractor Vanguard and even the Vatican.

Their reach is impressive...and even more so when you consider how Anonymous runs. The group functions as a loosely related group of international hackers.

There is no real leadership and any hacker can use the moniker Anonymous. So how does it all work? Rob Rachwald is the Director of Security Strategy at Imperva. They’ve just come out with their new, “Hacker Intelligence Summary.”

He told Chris Dorobek how it works.
