Anonymous calls for PayPal boycott – Security – News

leave a comment »

Hacker group Anonymous has struck PayPal again, this time by urging its followers to empty their accounts and stop using the payments provider’s services following news that U.S. prosecutors are looking to imprison a university student involved in the denial-of-service attacks on the company’s blog last year.

Anonymous, together with LulzSec, issued a press release Wednesday urging PayPal users to close their accounts immediately and consider an alternative. They pointed to PayPal’s willingness to “fold to legislation” as proof that it doesn’t deserve its customers and the business they give to the payments providers.
