Over the past week Indonesian hackers have been attacking innocent Australian businesses, education websites and even charity's in protest to the Australian government, more so ASIO spying on Indonesia. Since then a lot of Australians have voiced how stupid these attacks are and that the people of Australia have done nothing to them at all. When i asked one of the "hackers" why they are doing this and to justify attacking innocent websites i was told "your country started first" which is just a bit childish. Also on another note i have spoken to an Anonymous Australian IT worker who's company has been affected in these attacks which has resulted in the company having site down time and out sourcing to 3rd party to have updates and repairs done leaving them with a expense they didn't need. Message to Indonesian Hackers Anonymous Australia who originally started the #OpAustralia tag and operation against the Australian government over internet filters has released a video to reach out to the Indonesia hackers asking for them to stop attacking innocent websites and to join together to attack the Australian government as one and if they continue to attack innocent websites they will "feel the full wrath of our fellow legion.". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsPGthrzORk Video description and transcript: > In recent light, the ASIO has been caught spying on Indonesian citizens.
