Hackers that gather online under the banner 'Anonymous' were watching closely to decide their next move in defense of WikiLeaks.
WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange was granted bail today by a London court, a week after being jailed on a Swedish arrest warrant. But it remains to be seen if the ruling will end the cyberattacks launched in defense of WikiLeaks.
Hundreds of protesters had gathered outside the London court today, with thousands of online activists keeping a close eye on the hearing. Among them were computer hackers associated with the loosely knit "hactivist" association known as Anonymous.
“There definitely could be a big reaction. We'll just have to wait and see,” says Gregg Housh, an unofficial media contact on behalf of Anonymous.
