re: Hackers Launch New Wave Of U.S. Bank Attacks
Interestingly, none of the attacked sites were able to block or prevent the attacks, despite the prior warning. Meaning that the scale of the attacks was quite substantial. And just one of the ways that this doesn't sound like good old anarchic hacktivism, but rather something with a bit more backing/organization.

re: Hackers Launch New Wave Of U.S. Bank Attacks
If you are going to attack a major baking corporation such as Capital One you might not want to announce it. I am sure Capital One was on full defense during the stated times that the attacks were to occur, and alleviated the attack all together. The reason for the attacks is about as ridiculous as announcing the attacks themselves. I have not watched the movie The Innocence of Muslims film, so I can't comment about the content, but I have not to date witnessed a movie that made me want to up and start attacking foreign banks in the name of the film. Huh? That doesn't even make sense, anyway maybe next time they won't announce the attacks.
