Anonymous attacks Chinese and British websites

Over the Easter weekend, Anonymous is alleged to have attacked British and Chinese websites.

500 Chinese websites were defaced.and British government websites were also hit.   The Home Office, Ministry of Justice and Number 10 Downing Street sites were disrupted on Saturday night by denial of service attacks, which flooded the websites with more traffic than they could handle.

Anonymous described the reasons for the attacks as in protest of ACTA and against the UK-US extradition treaty.  Said treaty may result in British hackers being extradited to the US for their alleged crimes.

Anonymous claims they will continue attacks each weekend on British sites.
