Report: New York police raid homes of Anonymous members

FBI officials have raided the homes of three suspected Anonymous hackers, according to a report from Fox News.

FBI agents have reportedly searched homes in Brooklyn, Long Island and Baldwin, N.Y. A computer taken from the home of Giordani Jordan in Baldwin was identified as allegedly being used in a distributed denial-of-service attack.

The report said that the targets of the the FBI searches are all in their late teens or twenties.

The raids come one day after an affiliated hacker group, LulzSec, came out of retirement to take down the sites of Rupert Murdoch’s British operations.

Defiant as always, LulzSec dared Murdoch or anyone else to come after them for the attack. “Arrest us. We dare you. We are the unstoppable hacking generation,” the group posted on the LulzSec Twitter account.

LulzSec and Anonymous have recently been working together on the AntiSec movement, taking aim at government and intelligence Web sites. The group attacked the sites of government contractors IRC Federal and Booz Allen Hamilton earlier this month.
