In reaction to President Obama's recent executive order on cybersecurity and the reintroduction of CISPA legislation, Anonymous promised to interrupt Obama's State of the Union address.
"Anonymous has reached a verdict of no confidence in this executive order and the plans to reintroduce the CISPA bill to Congress on the same day," said a statement released by the group. "As such, President Obama and the State of the Union Address will be banished from the Internet for the duration of live delivery."
But as noted by IEEE's Spectrum, the group failed to disrupt the Internet stream of the President's State of the Union address.
