A small number of posts made to social media appear to be attempting to draw attention back to the OpIcarus campaign. The information being shared comes from one of the earliest phases of the operation, one in which the Ghost Squad hackers joined with Anonymous to target large institutions and central banks around the world. Different phases of the operation have focused on different types of organizations. Some have targeted stock exchanges, others central banks. Public and private banks have also found themselves in the cross hairs. The one target that has stayed constant through nearly every phase of the operation is the Rothschild family. During any given phase of the OpIcarus campaign, financial institutions can suffer from DDoS attacks, website defacements and, in some cases, compromises of their customer information databases.
