By now almost everyone has heard of the “hacktivist” group called Anonymous who have frequently expressed their opinions through cyberattacks.

They are best known for attacks on the websites of the Church of Scientology and those who spoke against or stopped doing business with WikiLeaks. They have also claimed responsibility for politically motivated attacks on government websites in Turkey, Egypt and Yemen.

They have recently claimed responsibility for taking down the Syrian Ministry of Defense website, posting in its place a message that calls for the removal of President Bashar Al-Assad.

This message has since been removed from the still-down Ministry of Defense website, but the Anonymous Twitter account posted a link to a replica.
