Anonymous declares ‘cyberwar’ on the IMF The vigilante hacktivists of Anonymous have announced an online attack on the IMF for its treatment of the Greek people. The struggle of the of the Greek people against the IMF has taken a new turn recently, as Anonymous declared its intention to launch a series of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks on the Fund in retaliation for the IMF’s treatment of the Greek people.
