Hacktivist group Anonymous has been in the US, Canada and the UK for some time, but it has been the UK where the group has been active, with the group having been involved in the cyberattacks on the financial institutions of the UK and the US.
In the past few months, the group released a series of exploits against the companies of the US financial institutions, targeting the banks of HSBC, the UK’s National Audit Office and several banks.
Anonymous said in a statement on Monday that the group would launch a new campaign on the same day as the first round of cyberattacks against the banks.
The group also released an attack on the US Department of Homeland Security, saying that they had compromised its network.
In addition, Anonymous said that it had attacked several US banks, including the US National Credit Union Administration and the National Bank of New York.
The cyberattacks are in line with the Anonymous’ usual campaign against the financial companies of Western countries, with Anonymous having released a number of exploits targeting the financial systems of European banks.
“We will not stop until the banks are forced to shut down their systems,” Anonymous said, calling on the Western countries to “stop paying us for our attacks”.
Anonymous has claimed responsibility for many of the cyber attacks on the governments of Western Europe and the United States, including a recent attack on a major US bank that compromised the financial information of 1.7 million people.
Anonymous has not revealed the locations of its attacks on Western banks.
In an interview with the German news agency DPA, Anonymous founder and leader, John McAfee, said that the hackers would target US financial and corporate entities.
McAfee said that Anonymous will release more attacks on banks in the coming days.
Anonymous launched the first attack on American banks in October 2015.
The attacks on financial institutions have been ongoing for several months, with some of the attacks coming as early as the end of March.
In August, Anonymous launched a new attack against the European financial services sector, which resulted in the financial data of about 1.5 million people being exposed.
Anonymous also launched an attack against major US banks in March, targeting more than 2.5 billion accounts of the major banks.
A month later, Anonymous published a new wave of attacks targeting the US government.
Anonymous claimed responsibility after a series the attacks against US federal agencies.
The hacktivist group has also claimed responsibility in previous attacks on other countries, including Russia and Iran.
The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has denied the claims, saying there was no breach of their systems.
Anonymous is also known to be involved in other cyberattacks, which have targeted governments, such as Israel and China.
Anonymous released a hacking tool called Lazarus last month, which it said was meant to steal the credentials of US government employees and their personal information.
Anonymous members have also been active in China and Russia, according to security firm Trend Micro.
Anonymous was previously known for its cyber attacks against governments in North America, Europe and other countries in recent years.
However, it is believed that the latest cyberattacks have become more focused on Western governments.
Anonymous announced on Sunday that it was taking part in a campaign called Operation Storm Door, which is a coordinated effort to launch cyberattacks and sabotage against targets in countries with large populations, such a US government, the US Defense Department and large corporations.
Anonymous did not provide any details about the specific targets of the group’s cyberattacks.
Anonymous and other hacker groups have recently launched attacks on Russia, and Russia is expected to be the first target for Anonymous.
The Anonymous has also previously attacked banks in other countries.
In July, Anonymous attacked the Russian state oil company Rosneft, accusing it of breaking its rules.
In September, Anonymous also targeted the Turkish government, demanding its data on over a million people, which included emails, bank accounts and personal information of millions of Turkish citizens.
Anonymous attacked banks, businesses and governments in several countries, according in a report by security firm CrowdStrike.
Anonymous recently attacked a Russian company and several European banks, which had been in business for several years.
Anonymous, which has previously claimed responsibility of cyber attacks in Iran, Iraq, Egypt and the Philippines, claimed responsibility on Monday for a new cyberattack targeting banks in Brazil.
