Brazilian hackers attack HSBC bank
SAO PAULO, BRAZIL (BDCi) – Hackers on Thursday kept up their campaign to cripple Brazilian banking websites and, in a new twist, their efforts appeared to affect both local and global websites of U.K’s HSBC Holding PLC.

This is the fourth attack in as many days by the Anonymous Brasil group, which says the effort is part of a campaign aimed at social activism in Brazil, and not theft.

Access to HSBC’s Brazilian website was intermittent throughout Thursday. Other global websites of the bank stopped working in the morning, but most seemed to be working normally by the afternoon.

Two groups behind Anonymous Brasil, Anti-Security Brazilian Team and iPiratesGroup, have claimed they are activists that want more equality in Brazil.
