Warning of Red October attacks
The hacker collective ‘Anonymous’ has issued a video warning that they will mount an attack on Oct 24 to bring down the Internet computer servers of Malaysian law enforcement agencies and others who support the 1Malaysia campaign of the Malaysian government.
‘Anonymous’ pinpointed the prime minister, Najib Tun Razak, as the prime target of the attack. Action against Malaysia would be conducted “as long as the Murderer remains Prime Minister” said the hacking group. “This video is your only warning.”
The video shows scenes of police in action at the Bersih rally last month, and makes reference to the deaths in custody of A Kugan and Teoh Beng Hock, and the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.
In June several Malaysia government web servers were hacked, for which ‘Anonymous’ was blamed. The attacks caused little damage.
