Costa Rica: Hacktivism and ‘Operation Fiscal Plan’

José Medrano from Carepicha Blog [es] writes about ‘Operation Fiscal Plan,’ a Denial of Service Attack planned by Anonymous Costa Rica against government websites to show the public discontent regarding the government's Tax Plan. José also analyzes what the government's response to this attack should be, and concludes: “In this blog we do not support the use of criminal actions for activism, but we also live and let live as long as this does not affect national security.”
