Synopsis: In the last year, Anonymous has been associated with attacks or “raids” on hundred’s of targets. They’ve attacked the Motion Picture Association of America, the websites of Mastercard, Visa and Paypal for cutting off financial services to Wikileaks and – along with other hacktivist groups like Telecomix - loaded their weapons to help with the Arab Spring. They’ve hit corporate targets like Sony and cyber-security/intelligence firms like HBGary Federal. They have taken down police and government domains, compromised their servers, dumped files, seized millions of internal documents, and handed over private emails and passwords in an offensive they casually called “F*** the FBI Fridays.” Call it the year of the Hacktivist. We Are Legion takes us inside the culture and roots of Anonymous, a group that has redefined civil disobedience for the digital age.
