Missoula Man Indicted For Alleged Involvement With Hacker Group

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A Missoula man is one of 13 people indicted for being part of the hacker group Anonymous, who are known for their cyber attacks on government, religious and corporate websites.

27-year-old Wade Carl Williams is charged with conspiracy to intentionally damage protected computers during his alleged involvement with the group "Anonymous".

An indictment shows from September 2010 to January 2011, Anonymous members flooded websites with Internet traffic to shut them down.

Targets include law firms that help protect intellectual property rights, which goes against the Anonymous philosophy of making all information free to everyone.

Williams made an initial appearance in U.S. District Court last Friday. He's set to appear in federal court in Virginia on Friday.
