The Muslim Brotherhood websites were attacked yesterday by hackers claiming to be from the “Anonymous” international hacking group.

The hacking group had made an announcement Tuesday in which they threatened to launch “Operation Brotherhood Takedown,” on all Brotherhood sites at 8pm on Friday, 11 November.

The Brotherhood claimed in a statement released on Saturday morning that the attacks were coming from Germany, France, Slovakia and San Francisco in the US, with 2000-6000 hits per second.

According to the MB, the attacks began at 6pm on Friday with the worst assault against the group’s official website, Ikhwanonline, with 120 thousand hits per second.

The hackers later escalated their attack on the site to 380 thousand hits per second.

Under the overload, four of the group’s websites were forced down temporarily.

Anonymous is made up of a group of unidentified hackers who have previously attacked Israeli, Russian and NATO sites.
