Cyber Terror and the Mexican Drug Cartel

Hollywood couldn't write a better script than this. A Mexican cartel has been given an ultimatum by a group of sophisticated computer hackers: release a captive hacker or risk public release of the names, photos, and addresses of cartel-friendly individuals.

The hacker group, known simply as Anonymous, have given the cartel the deadline of November 5th, which makes sense, given their love of the film and graphic novel V for Vendetta, and their penchant for wearing Guy Fawkes masks.
