 Hacker group Anonymous has admitted it took down Nissan's global and Japanese websites as a protest against Japanese dolphin culling.

Anonymous announced responsibility of the DDoS attack via its Twitter account, saying: "#Anonymous #OpKillingBay .@NissanJP #TangoDown #Japan stop the killing now!" with a photo montage of dolphins and Nissan cars.

However, the group said it didn't have plans to steal customer data or distribute it, but it said it wanted to give a warning to Japanese people involved in killing the creatures by bombarding the site with traffic, making it unavailable to people.
