Not long ago, the hacker collective known as Anonymous declared war against Michigan’s Republican governor Rick Snyder in a new campaign called #OpFlint. The declaration came, as they always do, in the form of a slick YouTube video, where they called for Snyder’s arrest. Less than 24 hours after Anonymous released the video, a major cyber-attack has been confirmed in Flint.
Anonymous did not make any specific details on what action(s) they will take in order to help the people of Flint. They say in the video, that “We must remind the city officials of Flint we do not forget and we do not forgive,” the spokesperson in the video says. “The crimes committed by Gov. Snyder as well as other city officials will not go unpunished.”
