Anonymous went after San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system on August 14 and 15. They hacked BART’s Website, MyBart.org, and posted on the Internet the user names, last names, addresses and telephone numbers of more than 2,000 commuters on August 14, according to the IDG News Service. The next day, BART’s site was down.
Anonymous targeted BART after the transit system temporarily disconnected cell phone service for all passengers the previous week, in an effort to thwart a demonstration activists were planning to protest two fatal shootings committed by BART police officers. The protest ended up taking place on Monday, as this picture shows.
