‚Anonymous‘ Hacker Claims Link To Homeless Feeding Group
ORLANDO, Fla. — A hacker claiming to be a supporter of the group Food not Bombs brought down the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce website and may have made a „Boycott Orlando“ posting on Universal Orlando Resort’s website Monday.
Food not Bombs is an Orlando group that serves meals to the homeless.
A city ordinance limits such feedings to two events per year.
So far, at least a dozen people have been arrested and accused of violating the ordinance.
According to chamber spokesperson Scott Fagin, workers received emails from a sender named „Anonymous.“ The emails called for a boycott of the city of Orlando.
Fagin said the site was flooded with so many emails at 10 a.m. Monday that the site went down.
The chamber’s website, Orlando.org, was still not accessible Monday afternoon.
The endeavor, dubbed Operation Orlando, asks supporters to send emails to city and county offices.
„We will assault the Orlando Chamber of Commerce web site, removing it from the interwebz completely,“ the Operation Orlando website reads. „Apparently the City of Orlando is just not getting the message that this behavior is simply un-acceptable in a free society.“
