Are Anonymous Still Active?
Anonymous, the decentralized, international hacktivist collective, first gained notoriety in 2008 when they launched a series of cyber-attacks against the Church of Scientology. Since then, they have become a household name, and in 2012, Time magazine even named them one of the “100 most influential people” in the world.
However, by 2018, Anonymous’ media profile had diminished significantly. The group had become less active and their online presence had dwindled. But in 2020, Anonymous re-emerged with a vengeance.
The group has been highly active in the wake of the George Floyd protests, launching a series of cyber-attacks against government websites, police departments, and other targets. They have also released personal information about police officers, hacked into police radio systems, and released documents exposing police brutality.
Anonymous has also taken a stand against racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression. They have launched campaigns to raise awareness about these issues and have called for justice for victims of injustice.
The group has also been active in other causes, such as the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. They have released documents exposing the mishandling of the pandemic by various governments, as well as documents exposing the involvement of corporations in the pandemic.
So, are Anonymous still active? The answer is a resounding yes. The group has re-emerged in 2020 with a renewed focus on fighting for justice and raising awareness about various causes. They have become a powerful force for change, and it is clear that they are here to stay.
