Anonymous hacktivists have defaced a number of websites to publish their “autumn statement.” They claim that this is their way of protesting against “tax-avoiding, rich and corrupt politicians.”

So far, the affected websites are the ones of SABA Consulting, Maxwells Spanish Holiday Villas, Arena Wealth, EF Medispa and Air Sea Transfers.

“While the UK continues to demonise and punish the poor, the sick and the unemployed for the corruption of the financial and political systems, we would like to remind all of the British tax-avoiding Monaco dwellers, the super-rich and politicians that: We are watching you. You will be held accountable for your greed. Expect Us,” they wrote on the affected sites.

All the websites are currently displaying the defacement message for a minute or so, after which they redirect visitors to the official site of the UK's Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
