Anonymous is losing steam, and quickly dying.
That's right, Anonymous is quickly becoming an obsolete part of a forgotten era of the Internet.
OpUSA promised to be a major cyber threat against the United States Government and major banks. Websites such as FBI.gov, Whitehouse.gov, and Bank of America were the key targets.
The actual damage? (per http://security.radware.com/Threats-Attacks/opusa/)
- An alert system which was being decomissioned by the Honolulu Police Department
- A Blood Bank
- Embassy of Cape Verde in the US
- ...and a handful of low-traffic websites which most people have never heard of.
How much longer will Anonymous hacking groups last? Based upon current trends they may still be around for a while yet, but gone are the days where Anonymous should be considered a serious threat.
Instead, after the failure of OpUSA, they're now probably the laughing stock of the Internet.
