Background

In October 2017, citizens of Catalonia – an autonomous community in Spain - held an independence referendum. This call for independence created a conflict between the Catalan leadership and Spanish government and increased law enforcement presence in Catalonia. As a result, the hacktivist group Anonymous launched a series of cyber-attacks against Spanish institutions in protest. The Anonymous operation has already seen three waves of attacks with a fourth operation staged to begin on December 21, 2017 in parallel with Catalans regional election.
