Police states, “the arrested members are the leaders of Anonymous group”, and also confirms that they have seized a computer from the hacktivist group that was used to launch attack on Sony.

The operation against Anonymous that resulted in arresting three members of the group was conducted because they distributed the Loic DDoS tool which is used for targeting website by flooding the server, it was also reported by El Mundo that the group had plans to publish sensitive data and confidential information about agents of the State Security Corps and politicians in different websites and forums.

The question is, will this stop other ‘Anons’ to act against Spanish Government?

Anonymous retaliation:

As expected, Anonymous by their Operations Account on Twitter posted a message against Spanish cops for arresting their three members:anonymous twitter message

Anonymous (like they delivered one for India) has also published a press release for Spanish Government in which they have stated their fellow anons as innocent protesters, who carried out the attacks and retaliated against Spanish government because of imposing internet censorship.
