Just What Is Hactivism?

We hear a lot of terms thrown around the media, some are classics and others are new, so new in fact that everyone understands the meanings and one such word happens to be “Hactivism” it sounds rather strange, but it is the point where computer hacking and political activists crossover and combine!

The first mention of this term seems to be around 2003, but it really came to the headlines in 2008, when organised groups began to target specific organisations for a number of different reasons. Today these groups are well funded and organised to take on government departments, which makes them very new worthy indeed.
