Hackers affiliated with Anonymous also claimed to have shut down several international banks over the past four days, including the National Reserve Bank of Tonga, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the central banks of Sweden, Myanmar and Laos.

A hacktivist who goes by the name ‘S1ege’ claimed responsibility for the attacks, stating they want to “start an online revolution” to retaliate against the “elite banking cartels putting the world in a perpetual state of chaos.”


S1ege, who is thought to be a member of the Ghost Squad branch of Anonymous, said the focus of future cyber-attacks will be “NASDAQ, NYSE and Paypal.”

While some banks were taken down for only a few minutes, others were left offline for hours.


  1. Oh please do some thing about the Icelandic banks, things in Iceland are not as good as the government would like the world to think.for instinct did you realize that wee still have the same crooks ruling the country as there was be for the Panama papers only one member of the government took a “vacation” (Sigmundur Davíð) but he is still in charge of the political party. while the minister of funds (Bjarni Benidiktsson) is no better than him and we all know it they are only very good at keeping things out of the foreign press and ignoring the protests. They refuse to let us vote until they have finished some “important business” which no one else can do according to them. And the banks own most of the contry´s real estate (the homes) and keep up the market value so no one can buy homes unless they are rich enough to pay for them in one payment. thus every one has to go in to the rental market for homes and if you do that you will be spending almost all of your income in rent leafing no room for food, clothing, or anything else.

  2. Cool! When you hack the BoE again, mind asking E. de Rothschild for the 1 billion British pounds he owes me, for hiding that I’m his bastard child of 61 years?
