+ - Britain's GCHQ victimized Anonymous supporters with DDoS attack->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes " NBC News says that during a 2012 NSA conference called SIGDEV, GCHQ's Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) bragged about using Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)* during an operation called Rolling Thunder to target Anonymous. (* There is evidence that says it was a SYN flood, so technically this is a DoS attack.)

Regular citizens will face 10 years in prison and enormous fines for committing a DoS / DDoS attack. The same applies if they encourage it or assist in one. But if you work in the government, it seems like you're an exception to the rule."
