|Summary text/ abstract||What is hacktivism? It combines politics, the Internet, and other elements. Let's start with the political. Activism, a political movement emphasising direct action, is the inspiration for hacktivism. Think of Greenpeace activists who go to sea to disrupt whaling campaigns. Think of the thousands of activists who responded to the Adbusters call in July 2011 to peacefully occupy a New York City park as part of Occupy Wall Street. Hacktivism is not a new phenomenon. Three years ago events in the former Soviet republics of Estonia (in 2007) and Georgia (in 2008) brought hacktivism to the world's attention. These two cyberattacks, which seemed more like the beginnings of a cyberwar than what we now call hacktivism, are quite unlike the attacks that targeted the opponents of WikiLeaks and companies such as Monsanto.|
