Update: Egyptian Gov't Web Sites Under Attack

Anonymous called for volunteers to stage a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against web sites run by the Egyptian government, notably the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and the Ministry of the Interior. The sites that not working as of 11 a.m. Eastern Time are the Egyptian cabinet and the Communications Ministry, while the Interior Ministry seems to still be working.

The group's Facebook page, called "Operation Egypt" carries messages about the Egyptian protests, and also a picture of a recruiting poster with an IRC channel as well as a "care package" to download. The rest of the page has news and updates from Egyptian and foreign sources.

Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos
