As part of their on-going support and sponsorship of Occupy Wall Street, the nebulous and notorious international Internet hacktivist collective known as Anonymous announced a new Operation Monday: Operation Invade Wall Street.

The Anonymous announcement promises that “On October 10th, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On October 10th, expect a day that will never, ever, be forgotten.”

 

Operation Invade Wall Street is scheduled to be a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack targeting the New York Stock Exchange. A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is an orchestrated attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users, in this case the announced target is the New York Stock Exchange.

 

Representatives of Anonymous released two separate videos in the last 24 hours – one meant  for the public, and another meant for the media. Both videos articulate a  justification for Operation Invade Wall Street.
