OpIcarus is a multiphase operation launched by Anonymous. Its goal is to take down the websites and services associated with the global financial system. These attackers accuse the system with 'corruption' and want to raise public awareness. The objective is to target these financial institutions with persistent denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and data dumps. Among the targets of previous attacks are the New York Stock Exchange, Bank of England, Bank of France, Bank of Greece, Bank of Jordan and the Bank of South Korea, among others.
