London, Apr 15 (ANI): Notorious Internet hacking group Anonymous issued a warning that they had planned to take down the website of the UK intelligence agency, Government Communications Headquarters (GHCQ).
"#Anonymous Next DDOS attack is on GCHQ.gov.uk Sat 14th April...WE MUST CONTINUE TO FIGHT," a message posted on twitter from one of the accounts associated with Anonymous read.
According to Sky News, the group claims to be protesting about proposals to tighten Internet surveillance regulations.
GCHQ is British Government's Communications Headquarters based in Cheltenham.
It is a highly secretive organization, which works closely with both the Security Service (MI5) and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
According to the report, last weekend, followers of the same organisation successfully shut down the website of the UK Home Office for a number of hours, to protest against the UK's extradition deal with the United States. (ANI)
