Anonymous, a global hacktivist group, attacked websites associated with Halifax’s Dalhousie University in retaliation for claimed inaction by the school and local police over an alleged frat-house rape.
As the distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks were launched last week and over the weekend, members of a Halifax-based cell of Anonymous released a video statement again naming the alleged attacker and suggesting his family’s influence within Halifax may be the reason charges have not been laid.
“Dalhousie is under fire,” a spokesman for Halifax Nova Scotia Anonymous told the National Post. “Doing nothing is not an option. Every day that goes by without charges being laid tells the women of Halifax not to go forward with their complaints of rape.”
