"Global Action Against Capitalism"
Information received by the NIPC indicates that
computer activists may employ various types of cyber disruption techniques,
in support of a so-called "Global Action Against Capitalism," scheduled
to take place on or around May 01, 2000. International financial and trade
agencies are the most likely targets for this action. Past cyber-protests
have included web page disruptions and denial of service attacks, including "virtual
sit-ins." A "virtual sit-in" occurs when web browsers repeatedly
request a web page and the volume of requests overwhelms the web server.
