Amid the real world protests swarming around Wall Street, the Department of Homeland Security has warned financial companies to be vigilant against a looming cyber- security threat from Anonymous, a headless horde of activist hackers.

Wanted for shutting down Web sites as high-profile as that of the CIA, a recently released DHS bulletin said the group “will continue to exploit vulnerable publicly available Web servers, computer networks and other digital information mediums for the foreseeable future.”

While the DHS warning doesn’t mention Wall Street protests in particular, it did say that “publicized events” like Occupy Wall Street may motivate the group.
