Fed agents hot on trail of Anonymous hackers

Fed agents hot on trail of Anonymous hackers 09 Feb 2012 Every move by the hacker activists Anonymous is being watched by the FBI, which views the loosely organized group as a pack of cyber vandals that attacks targets without motivation - including Boston's police department website. The FBI has conducted an ongoing investigation into Anonymous for a little more than a year, according to a spokesperson at FBI Headquarters in Washington. The bureau’s website was knocked out for a few hours by Anonymous last month after federal authorities shut down a file-sharing website and arrested the operators. [So, the FBI has been investigating Anonymous for over a year... and yet, Anonymous is still hacking! Ergo, I wouldn't say the FBI is 'hot' on the trail.]
