Suspected Anonymous Hactivists Arrested in Turkey and Spain
Following Friday’s arrest of 3 individuals that Spanish authorities describe as “senior” members of the loosely organized Anonymous hacking group, Turkey has arrested 32 people alleged to have been involved in recent attacks in Turkey. Spanish authorities allege that the 3 individuals arrested were involved in the recent Sony Playstation hacks, as well as intrusions into several government sites. See here and here for more coverage. The arrests in Turkey were in response to DDoS attacks against several Turkish government websites, only days before the country’s national elections.

Hopefully, this represents only the beginning of enforcement actions in response to the large spike in high profile security incidents in the first half of this year.
