Anonymous is becoming a bit of a protective entity, targeting governments and corporations that seem to be bullying everyday people and small businesses. Philadelphia is in their sites for allegedly doing one such deed and will likely want to avoid any confrontation with the hacktivist collective.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania recently caught the attention of the hacktivist collective Anonymous when the city government targeted a businessman’s attempt to clean up downtown trash.
The city owns a vacant lot overrun with weeds and debris, adjacent to Ori Feibush’s coffeeshop. After years of battling with the city over the eyesore, Feibush took it upon himself to clean it up. He spent at least $20,000 of his own money to remove 40 tons of trash and renovate the property — a project Anonymous claims would have cost Philadelphia taxpayers $1.5 million.
