What's ironic about the hacking group known as Anonymous is that it's virtually impossible to remain truly anonymous on the Internet. We're not saying hackers can't hide themselves really well, but throw enough time and resources into the hunt, and chances are they'll be tracked down. The FBI has done just that and raided the homes of three suspected Anonymous hackers living in New York.
According to FoxNews.com, which claims an exclusive on the story, nearly a dozen FBI agents stormed through the Baldwin, New York home of Giordani Jordan with search warrant in hand. The agents confiscated at least one laptop from their 1-hour and 40-minute long raid.
Meawhile, agents also searched a home in Long Island, and another in Brooklyn, both also in New York. It's unclear if anything was confiscated from those homes, though according to FoxNews.com, Jordan's system is one that authorities believe was used in a coordinated distributed denial of service attack against several companies.
Remaining the defiant bunch, a user connected with Anonymous after learning of the raids tweeted, "It doesn't matter how many people the 'FBI' arrest.. whether they are core members or not.. #anonymous have started something unstoppable."
LulzSec's recent reemergence notwithstanding, we used to hear similar war cries, right up until the organization abruptly called it quits as authorities began to close in on their inner circle.
