Anonymous Hackers Hit Toronto Web Sites


Members of Anonymous recently redirected the Web sites of more than 50 Toronto businesses to the Occupy Toronto Web site.

"They also took down the Canadian version of the popular Craigslist website and obtained a number of 'valuable' emails they plan on using later if things don’t go their way," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.

"'The city of Toronto are fools to think that we would remove the city hall Web site off the Internet. We clearly indicated that we are removing Toronto from the Internet. We are offering to keep the peace as of now, but if you decide to declare war in any possible way, then you shall be prepared,' Anonymous said in a video statement," Kovacs writes.
