Guantanamo Wi-Fi shuttered after Anonymous hacking threat

In unity with the prison's inmates, the hacking group pledges to disrupt online activities at Guantanamo -- prompting the U.S. military to shut down the base's Wi-Fi.

  

After the hacking collective Anonymous launched a Twitter campaign pledging to go after the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba, the U.S. military barred all Wi-Fi access on the base, according to the Associated Press. All social media, including Facebook and Twitter, also has been banned.

Army Lt. Col. Samuel House told the Associated Press that the shuttering of the base's Wi-Fi was because of Anonymous' public plans to "disrupt activities" at the military prison. 

While no disruptions have yet been reported, according to the Associated Press, Anonymous has promised to make good on its threats.
