Anonymous Hit Ministry of Justice & British Home Office Over Protest Against Assange Case

Hacker collective Anonymous again stand for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. This time hackers affiliated with Anonymous have targeted a few British government websites in the last 24 hours. The hacker group claimed responsibility on Twitter for the denial-of-service attacks which affected the Ministry of Justice and the Home Office" seems to be offline. Odd. #Anonymous #Assange," said a posting on the group's Twitter website at the time of the attacks on Monday night. It later added: "Sorry for the delay Forgot to say no3 #TangoDown aprox 1 hour ago ;) #OpFreeAssange."
The incident comes as the Wikileaks founder is staying at Ecuador's embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden over sex assault claims, which he denies. He was granted asylum by Ecuador last week. He has been at the embassy since June and on Sunday addressed crowds of his supporters from the embassy's balcony, thanking Ecuador and other South American countries for their support. The UK has insisted it is obliged to extradite Mr Assange, 41, and wants a "diplomatic solution", making clear that Mr Assange will be arrested if he leaves the embassy.
Downing Street, the office of Prime Minister David Cameron, and the Home Office said attempts to disrupt the work of their sites had failed or caused minor problems, although the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) said the attack had affected its website. This is not the very first time, few months ago (April, This year) Anonymous engaged massive cyber attack which bring down British Prime Minister’s Office, Home Office & Ministry of Justice. We would also like to remind you another instance, where both members of the hacktivist group, Anonymous and supporters of Julian Assange stood together outside of the Supreme Court in London to protest against the extradition of the Wikileaks founder to Sweden.
