The activist hacker collective known as Anonymous announced a monthlong onslaught of the global financial system, dubbed "Operation Icarus", following a distributed-denial-of-service attack on the Greek central bank's website. "We will be giving many tools to each and every 'Anon' all over the world, and we will be holding down PayPal, MasterCard, VISA, Nasdaq, Bank for International Settlements, all central banks, [the International Monetary Fund], London Stock Exchange, and every major banking system will be targeted by Anonymous," the group said in a statement on YouTube.
