As for Yemen, websites targeted included the Yemeni Ministry of Information, the tax office, and the website for Yemen's long-serving president, Ali Abdullah Saleh. Anon used their infamous Low Orbit Ion Cannon to take the websites down, the same trick used last year to take MasterCard, Visa and PayPal down.

Supposedly Anon is quite interested in targeting countries that are usntable, Anon is currently focusing on anti-government protests in the Arab world. Just last month Anon took down websites that belong to the Tunisian government and the stock exchange in support of the uprising that forced the country's dictator Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, to flee.
