Today Ecuador asked for aid in the cyber attacks generated by Anonymous over the expulsion of journalist Julian Assange from their London Embassy. In an article by La Republica seen here, the Deputy Minister of Information and Communications technology stated:
“Yes, we are going to receive help, as a result of which we began to have attacks, there were calls from other States to offer the support that we could require,” explained the Deputy Minister of Information and Communication Technologies, Patricio Real.“
“The damage of the offensive is reduced for the moment to the implantation in an official page of a local Government of a photograph of Assange with the thumb lifted, taken the day of its processing in London, and another similar case.“
“In the last five days, Ecuador has suffered “more attacks than in its entire history together,” he said.“
Over 40 million attacks in Ecuador this weekend alone and at least e0 sites were down
Recently, Anonymous has also warned the United Kingdom to release Assange or suffer chaos. It remains to be seen what will happen next.
Anonymous: “Expect us.”
