Anonymous asks UK police to "join us" in emails

Hacker group Anonymous asks UK police to "join us" over email
| Hacking & Security News | Posted: Oct 26, 2012 12:39 pm

Hacker collective group Anonymous have reportedly asked member of the British police force by email to "join us", and yes, it's serious. The group hacked into the UKPoliceOnline forum, stole email addresses of police officers, where they then emailed a manifesto which reads like a recruitment message:




We know that most of you are working-class people, like the majority of us, and that you too have mortgages, student loans, or your children do, and other debts as well. Don't defend the traitors against us, your fellow citizens. We offer you our hands in friendship. Join us.


Why Anonymous did this, we don't know, but it is definitely an interesting turn of events. Anonymous look to be acting toward the human side of these officers, after all, they're in debt just as much as the next person. We've seen what police and hired enforcements can do to Occupy Wall St and the various riots in the EU lately, maybe this is a step toward Anonymous and the police working together, maybe it's just a huge troll.
