Enoch Moses Kaplin, who goes by the codename GreyCat, was arrested for distributing software that allows Israeli YouTube users to bypass a ban on ‘unsafe’ videos.

The arrest of GreyCat has led to international attention, and the Twitterverse started #opfreeEnoch.

GreyCat was traced via his bank records, which were given to the Israeli government by Aryeh Bank, which is a subsidiary of the New York-based international banking firm Green & Company.

When the hacktivist community learned that GreyCat’s arrest was due to the release of his bank records, they began targeting Aryeh Bank, Green & Comapny, and its associates.

In public comments, @DredSea, the spokesman for #opfreeEnoch, implied that more attacks were being planned against the banks.
