Cyber Attack on US Banks and Government Websites Expected on May 7th

The White House website and eight other federal government sites, plus those of 133 U.S. banking institutions, are listed as targets in an April 24 Anonymous Pastebin post.

Security experts say that OperationUSA, a coordinated online attack against banking and government websites slated for May 7, is a serious threat. As a result, organizations should be upping their distributed-denial-of-service attack mitigation strategies to guard against the attacks, which are being coordinated by the hacktivist group Anonymous.
