Anonymous Hackers Target CEOs in Operation Wall Street

Anonymous hackers have launched ‘Operation Wall Street’, a new protest started by the loosely organized hactivist collective against the US government, Wall Street and the financial services industry.

The operation is a call to all Anonymous “members” and citizens of the world and seeks justice for the “innocent and exploited people being forced into homelessness” because of the “crimes of Goldman Sachs and other firms who have indulged in sinister and criminal practices.”

The official proposal for the operation calls for a release of the the Dox on the “CEOs & any and all executives of Goldman Sachs, AIG, Wells Fargo, Chase, Meryl Lynch, and any other guilty party”. The goal of Operation Wall Street is to spread the personal information of those responsible for the crimes to the people who have lost their homes and had their lives destroyed.

According to links that began appearing on Twitter on March 2nd, Anonymous has already released 4.6 gigabytes of data providing the personal information of Wall Street CEOs and other high level executives.

Operation Wall Street

Operation Wall Street releases 4.6GB of data.

Last week the group calling themselves the “Anonymous Intelligence Agency“, or Par:AnoIA, released 14 gigabytes of information implicating Bank of America and others in a massive spying operation. Anonymous claims the data dump proves that Bank of America contracted at least one private intelligence firm to spy on numerous private citizens including hackers and social activists.

The following statement was released on the Anonymous public relations website:

“It is no longer tolerable that these men and women get to live in luxury and lawlessness while innocent people are pushed into poverty and people who fight for freedom are prosecuted and demonized.

They must be stopped … OPERATION WALL STREET, must be launched.

We promise not to hurt you once we release your information but we cannot hold the people you screwed over responsible for their actions once they know who you are and where you live. You are not free to escape the consequences of your actions, no one is.

We are Anonymous, We are Legion, We do not Forgive, We do not Forget.

Expect Us.”

      Are Anonymous really going to go after the bankers and ceo’s. Is it just USA banks they are going for or are they going after Banks in other countries like the ANZ in Australia and New Zealand. Also what about Greek and Spanish Banks.

    Well, its a start. Our system must be changed from the inside out, or bottom up, as the lackeys who think they are in power will never get off their hypocritical, compromised wimpy asses to do anything of consequence

    If you’ve not done anything wrong, you’ve got nothing to worry about. Maybe your fans will bring flowers to your driveway.

    I like the sign: “Revolution – The Time is Now”. I keep seeing & hearing about revolution.

    A TIME TO STAND by Oliver is a new book out about revolution, where a small, American town takes a stand against federal tyranny & ends up starting the 2nd American Revolution. It’s just average, decent citizens who are the characters. It’s provocative so I recommend.
