The Anonymous community has once again united its efforts to fight censorship. This time, the targets were all the subdomains owned by Globo, the major Brazilian TV network that’s considered to be the fourth largest in the world.
started on April 2 and, since, a number of subdomains hosted on globo.com have been taken offline one by one after being hit with distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks.
The first one to fall was corp.editoraglobo.globo.com,
followed by editoraglobo.com, telecine.globo.com, telecine.com.br,
“Hello to all Anonymous, supporters, and any other category that may exist. We begin a major operation. We are tired of the manipulations of Globo. We are launching OpGlobo,” read a message posted
by one of the initiators of the campaign.
“We are counting on the help of all who read this message. Let’s make it clear to our opposers that we don’t want media to be censored.”
According to the attack schedule, the last target was the assine
domain and, for now, things seem to be quiet. We’ll return with more information if the hackers resume the op.
