As top secret files rest in the recesses of high security government headquarters, a group of faceless activists are roaring forth down the other end of the Ethernet cable, ready to raid the servers and escape with sensitive information. These cyber pillaging groups are calling themselves “hacktivists”, and are rising in popularity as an alternative force to physical protesting. They aim to revolutionise the way we discover injustices wreaked upon us by major corporations and government agencies, with hacking as their weapon. They often state in their manifesto’s that their goal is to promote civil disobedience by showing us all the smoking gun of corruption, censorship and elitist rule.
