Embarcadero Media Group Attacked by ‘Anonymous’

September 21st, 2015

The websites of Palo Alto Weekly, The Almanac, Mountain View Voice and Pleasanton Weekly were all reportedly attacked at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday. The company temporarily took the websites offline and it is distributing news content through its social media platforms.

After being hacked, the websites featured a message and an image of Guy Fawkes, a symbol typically associated with the hacker group Anonymous. The message explained that the company, “failed to remove content that has been harmful to the well-being and safety of others,” warning that, “failure to honor all requests to remove content will lead to the permanent shutdown of all Embarcadero Media Group websites.”
