Anonymous Operation of the Day: Legalize DDoS

Members of Anonymous are jumping on the White House petition bandwagon in an attempt to “make distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks a legal form of protesting” under freedom of speech, The Daily Dot reports. A popular tactic that’s long been associated with the infamous hacking and trolling collective, DDoS attacks have been steadily on the rise in recent years with easier access to automated software programs and its frequent appearance in the news media. As of 3 p.m. (ET), the petition has less than 500 signatures, which isn’t an impressive number but considering the reputation of the organizers, this may all change really soon.
