Hacking groups, Anonymous and LulzSec have responded to the arrests made by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) by dismissing their warnings and threats.
According to The Reuters, both the groups posted a joint statement on Thursday after FBI’s deputy assistant director Steve Chabinsky, during an interview to the US National Public Radio network (NPR) said that arrests of 16 suspected members of the hacking groups clearly indicates that chaos on Internet is not acceptable.
“We are not scared any more. Your threats to arrest us are meaningless to us as you cannot arrest an idea. Any attempt to do so will make your citizens more angry until they will roar in one gigantic choir.” the joint statement read.
The group also added that they understand that web chaos is unacceptable to the FBI, but they also find corruption and conspiracy in both public and corporate sectors as completely unacceptable and it is their aim to help the common man.
The group has vowed to instigate its actions against the government after the arrest of 16 people earlier this week. Recently the Anonymous announced to have breached the highly secured website of defence organisation NATO.
