Washington Post: On Tuesday, a hacker who claims to be part of the Anonymous group briefly took down the Mastercard Web site. He launched a denial of service attack against the company in retaliation for Mastercard's refusal to process donations to WikiLeaks.

The new attack came just one day after another hacktivist group, LulzSec, disbanded and reportedly merged with Anonymous.
