(NEWSER) – Hackers have spent weeks warning of a giant attack on US government agencies and banks—and today is the day, they say. "Anonymous will make sure that this May 7th will be a day to remember," said the hacker group in a post, per the Huffington Post. The attacks are retaliation for US "war crimes" in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, the group noted. The government is preparing, but it doesn't seem hugely scared, expecting "limited disruptions" and "nuisance-level attacks against publicly accessible webpages."
