Hackers of the Anonymous movement have resumed the anti-government campaign dubbed Operation Bangladesh (OpBangladesh). Over the past hours, they’ve targeted at least three government websites.
The hacktivists have launched distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks against the websites of the Prime Minister’s Office (pmo.gov.bd), the Election Commission Bangladesh (ecs.gov.bd), and the country’s government portal (Bangladesh.gov.bd).
At the time of writing, the website of the Election Commission appears to be working properly. However, the government portal and the prime minister’s website are still inaccessible.
The list of OpBangladesh targets includes all government websites, but also some local blogs and news sites. The initiators of the campaign are providing supporters with a web-based DDOS tool which they can use to launch attacks.
While hacktivists are protesting in cyberspace, Bangladesh opposition supporters are preparing for mass marches in protest against the controversial upcoming elections.
