One of John Robb’s 27 Rules was that “it’s better to damage and impair a network than to completely destroy it, because it forces the target to use up more resources for repair.” That’s what Anonymous is succeeding at doing so brilliantly - using up massive amounts of federal, state and local resources in multiple countries without ever actually destroying anything. Someone needs to conduct a hard target evaluation on whether Anonymous attacks deserve the same importance as the theft of critical data or attacks against critical infrastructure.
