Anonymous plans to attack Formula 1 again, this time for the Canadian Grand Prix, after last month attacked F1’s official website.
Anonymous threatened to attack any F1-related sites before the race, to oppose a recently accepted Canadian bill which is aimed at stopping student protests against proposed tuition hikes. The haker group plans to interfere with the race and wreck anything related to F1, attacking servers on from June 7th-10th.
In April Anonymous shut down F1 official website during the Bahrain Grand Prix, showing its opposition concerning the regime of reigning monarch Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. The race was not hampered but the group said it is in possession of personal information, such as credit card numbers from the F1 website.
“We highly suggest that you join the boycott of the F1 in Montreal and we certainly recommend that you do not purchase and tickets or merchandise online,” Anonymous said in a release. “You have been warned.”
Through these attacks Anonymous shows it opposes violations of human rights in Quebec. The group also targeted F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone and pledged F1 drivers to support their cause by not crossing the start line.
