Football world cup in Brazil will start in couple of days but cyber attacks against the tournament are already in progress.
Today the online hacktivistÂ group Anonymous has taken down the official website ofÂ Military Police of SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil in a powerful DDoS attack.
The attack was announcedÂ with hash tags likeÂ #FIFA2014 #OpMundial2014 andÂ #OpHackingCup but not limited to the world cup.
After taking down the website of Military police, Anonymous left a press release on their blog with a message for Brazilian PresidentÂ Dilma Rousseff talking about massacres ofÂ Kayapo and other indigenous peoples. Click here to read the message.

Screenshot ofÂ Military Police of SÃ£o Paulo website shows it’s down since yesterday:
ItÂ allÂ started in 2013 when hackers defaced and replaced FIFA Brazil World Cup website with protest footage. Last monthÂ Anonymous announced that it will start a massive cyber attack on companies and organizations sponsoring the Brazilian world cup. However, attack onÂ Military Police of SÃ£o Paulo website can be considered as one of the most high profile attack against the Brazilian government.Â
At the time of publishing this article, the website ofÂ SÃ£o PauloÂ Military Police was down.
