Evidence Against 'Anonymous' Heads to Grand Jury
A grand jury will begin looking through mobile phones, computer hard drives, and other items seized by the FBI in connection with Anonymous, the cyber vigilantes accused of launching distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on companies that had severed ties to WikiLeaks.
According to various reports, the federal grand jury in San Jose, California will examine the evidence on Thursday, February 10.
The items were seized during an FBI raid on January 27, during which five men were arrested in connection with the DDoS attacks on sites that had publicly withdrawn support to WikiLeaks such as Visa, MasterCard, Amazon, and PayPal.
