Anonymous Bring Down The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)

Anonymous Bring Down The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Official Site
Hacktivist group Anonymous continuing massive denial of service of attack on the data protection watchdog's website. The tweets, which were published by the @UKAnonymous2012 account, claim the attack is part of a protest by the group at the handling of the Leveson Inquiry.  Incidentally, the Leveson Inquiry’s website has also been the target of DDoS attacks by Anonymous this week.
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has confirmed that it’s still dealing with the fallout from a suspected Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on its website.In a statement sent to IT Pro, the data watchdog said access to the site has been disrupted over the last several days because of the attack. “The website itself has not been damaged, but people have been unable to access it. We provide a public facing website which contains no sensitive information,” the statement said. “We regret this disruption to our service and we are working to bring the website back online as soon as possible.” 
Like ICO couple of weeks ago we have seen similar attack on the official website of UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) that time also the experts suspected that Anonymous was behind the attack and the reason of that hack was to protest Supreme Court's decession on blocking The Pirate Bay in UK.
