Hacktivist group Anonymous is planning cyberattacks on Wall Street, “corrupt banking institutions” and the New York City Police Department, in what it called a “Day of Vengeance” this Saturday.
In a statement posted on Pastebin.com, Anonymous indicated its “Day of Vengeance” stemmed from the recent New York City “Occupy Wall Street” demonstration where it claimed police used excessive force to deal with protesters.
“Anonymous and the other cyber liberation groups around the world together with all the freedom loving people in the USA will NOT stand for this. We will peacefully yet forcefully resist the abuses of the NYC Police Department. And so Anonymous announces a nationwide ‘Day Of Venge(a)nce’ to take place in dozens of cities across the USA on Saturday – September 24, 2011 at High Noon,” it said.
