The FCC’s decision american of ending the neutrality of the network has been put on a war footing to Anonymous. The collective promotes DoS attacks against the regulator of the communications and the disclosure of private data of its leaders.

last week there was an event that will be a turning point in the future development of the internet. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC, in its acronym in English) in the u.s. voted last December 14 in favor of the dismantling of net neutrality driven by Barak Obama, opening the way to an ‘internet of two speeds’, as coined The New York Times.

This decision, though controversial, have already seen coming. The arrival of Donald Trump to the presidency of the united States, a sower of uncertainty the maintenance of the cited principle of network neutrality. All these doubts have been resolved now.

And what can be the consequences? Radware warns hacktivists might intensify their protests against those who support directly and indirectly the repeal. The it security company points out that the priority objectives could include institutions such as the FCC or the u.s. Congress, and companies such as AT & T, Comcast, Spectrum, Charter, etc

In fact, Radware claims that after the repeal, different groups within the collective Anonymous have launched digital campaigns to protest against this measure. So, there have been calls to undertake an offensive materialized in the form of a denial of service attacks (DoS) or the theft of private information (doxing) for public dissemination, in order to perform escraches and extend the actions of retaliation outside of the network. In this way, the promoters have published details of “whois” the domain fcc.gov under the label OpFCC. And other attackers are sharing personal information of the key figures in the FCC as its president, Ajit Pai.

According to Anonymous, these actions do not have a political background, but this is a protest the violation of human rights in regards to net neutrality. The hacktivist group believes that the repeal of the laws which guaranteed this principle will definitely change the way you access the network in the U.S. And that means that its impact will spread to the rest of the world.

in Addition, Anonymous believes that the end of net neutrality could lead to an increased censorship, to create a system of ‘pay-to-play’ that expel business to small businesses. Therefore, the collective requires that the FCC and ISPS to treat all content equally and not give preference to a few services over others.
