FBI raids homes, seizes computers in hacking probe

The FBI has raided several New York homes during a probe into the hacker group Anonymous.



New York: The FBI has raided several New
York homes during a probe into the hacker group Anonymous.

FBI spokesman Jim Margolin says agents searched
residences and seized computers at one address in Brooklyn and
three on Long Island. He declined further comment. The targets
of the searches were not named.

Anonymous is an amorphous, loosely organised group of
hackers sympathetic to WikiLeaks. It has claimed
responsibility for numerous attacks against corporate and
government websites around the world.

The group claims credit for disrupting the websites of
Visa and Mastercard in December when the credit card companies
stopped processing donations to WikiLeaks and its founder,
Julian Assange.

It is known for attacks on the Church of Scientology
and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons.
