Över 50 webbplatser tillhörande Malaysias regering har angripits, och 41 av dem har stängts ner efter att man blivit hackade av gruppen Anonymous.

Orsaken till attacken är att regeringen blockerar webbplatser som The Pirate Bay och Wikileaks. I ett medelande skriver man:

"Greetings, Malaysia,
We have seen the censorship taken by the Malaysian government, blocking sites like The Pirate Bay, and WikiLeaks. Malaysia is one of the world’s strictest governments, even blocking out movies, and television shows. These acts of censorship are inexcusable. You are taking away a basic human right. The internet is here for freedom, without fear of government interference. Do not think that no one else notices. Your structured government has done the talking, and we hear loud and clear. Let this be an announcement to all your people. This is a sign, a warning, and an opportunity to listen to ideas above your own. In a way you are being stubborn. But how will this help anyone or your country. We fear that if you make further decisions to take away human freedom. We are obligated to act fast and have no mercy. For rules were meant to be broken. And corruption was meant to be washed away and forgiven. Now we will wash your corruption away so be prepared. Take this as a favor.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect Us."

Rikspolischefen Ismail Omar sade att han inte trodde att känsliga uppgifter hade stulits från de hackade webbplatserna, men tillade att det var för tidigt att överblicka skadorna.

Anonymous är en global rörelse som verkar för frihet på internet.
