The hacker group Anonymous Hispano took credit for paralyzing the online sites. At around 3 p.m., Los Cabos time, Anonymous Hispano tweeted "Only minutes to begin (hash)OpG20." Minutes later, the group followed with another tweet about the G20, "they are responsible in great measure for the poverty of the world." A flurry of other tweets touting the site problems followed. Several Anonymous-related groups have paralyzed the websites of the Brazilian, Russian and other governments.
ah, children! "Poverty of the world"! Of course, it couldn't be dictators starving their own people, or countries locked into backward, 17th century mindsets (hi Saudi Arabia! ). Nope - its the G20.
