Hacktivists Targets on Myanmar After Recent Attacks on Muslims
Hacktivists of Anonymous and other groups have resumed Operation-Myanmar(OpMyanmar). Anti-Muslim aggression that originated in the country over the past weeks has ignited the persistence of the operation.
Cyber War News reports that many government web-sites – including the ones of the Ministry of Communications and IT, and Subdivision of Civil Aviation – have been interrupted with distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks.
Hackers have also attacked a large number of commercial web-sites from Myanmar.
The hacktivists guilt not only the Myanmar government, but also the government of the US and the press for letting the harassment of the Rohingya people continue. They claim the press is “consistently ignoring the atrocities” that take place in the country.
“We call on the Anonymous collective to stand with those for whom no one else will stand. We call on Anonymous and all supporters of human rights to stand against this great injustice, to give the Rohingya a voice, before they are completely eliminated,” the hackers said in an earlier statement for a campaign called OpRohingya.
