lukehopewell1 writes "The Australian government is currently discussing a plan that would force local internet service providers (ISPs) to collect and retain user browsing data for up to two years in a new National Security inquiry. This has ruffled the collective feathers of Anonymous, who have formed Operation Australia to show just how insecure data actually is when retained by governments. The group started by hacking 10 state government websites and have now threatened to hack a local ISP if the inquiry doesn't rule out data retention." Link to Original Source
