Anonymous, the world’s most active group of hackers has taken down a number of government websites in North Carolina over the last few days. According to the report the reason behind attacking the websites is the Bathroom Law. According to this law, it basically requires people to use public bathrooms as per the gender of their birth. The law is being termed as anti-LGBT. The government has been thrashed badly and popular figures have also issued statements boycotting this law.
The attacks took place over the weekend and were aimed at the main North Carolina government portal (nc.gov) and the website of the North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory (governor.nc.gov). The group’s Twitter account (@OperationLGBT) said these attacks will continue until the state changes the HB2 law, also known as the Bathroom Bill.
Anonymous has become the voice of hundreds and thousands of individuals, who haven’t had any particular, solid platform to voice their opinions, disgust over certain decisions and ill practices of the governments and institutions.
