In a presentation he made at RSA 2012 in London, Josh Corman, director of security intelligence at Akamai, revealed that Anonymous had failed in getting rid of evil.
“Many thought they were going to get banks to change, but all they were doing was filling the pockets of [DDoS protection vendors]. It’s great for us,” Corman said, according to
“If their aim is to get rid of evil, it’s not working,” he added.
This statement seems to have upset a number of hacktivists who decided to initiate Operation Akamai.
A public event
was launched on Facebook and an analysis of Akamai’s servers has been posted on Pastebin
in support for the campaign.
On the other hand, as CyberWarZone highlights
, not all Anonymous hackers agree with Operation Akamai. Some admit that what Josh Corman has said is true.
