This invitation on /b/ on 4chan warns of a DDOS attack on foxnews.com tomorrow afternoon. He was kind of asking for it when he described 4chan as a "a far-left website" "providing child pornography to internet pedophiles."

i.current.com...

looks like the 4chan board is starting to branch out. I can't say I'm disappointed at all. The last thread I posted with the Max Headroom video, everyone was saying "when is anonymous going to attack the media, and politicians?"

It looks like both of those questions have been answered this week.

simple - that's the easiest way to cut through the red-tape of privacy and freedoms. You just mentioned something about children, and porn, and it's like the Constitution never existed.

What fun, I remember when I was a kid and we wanted to go out and have a little fun, go gather up some eggs and toilet paper and decorate each others' houses for a kick..

I guess this is the new age way for kids to get their kicks.

This will really change things

as much as I love making authority figures mad and just causing trouble in general... I don't think this is a good idea!

4chan is basically 'anything goes' and there ARE people who frequently post child porn like its 'not a big deal'.

4chan is all about internet freedom, but they are ruining it for all of us

I saw another thread on 'Anonymous' but never took it as an actual group.

For the less perceptive
, whats the low down?

I could look it up suppose... but our insight is generally more interesting here.

Also, what does the 'DDOS' stand for, or do we know?

Also, I was on 4chan yesterday and someone posted Bill O'Rielly's home address and his Mortgage information. I guess it is all public information, but still.. they are opening a can of worms.

It certainly will. This type of thing is a fast track to becoming the next front to the war on "terra"

It would be far less of a foolish thing if there was something to gain or expose. You hack a cable news channel. Woo-freaking-hoo. This is right up there in importance and usefulness as their time-wasting campaign against John Travoltas volcanic space god last year.

A group of idiots with too much time on their hands. Theyre supposedly talented and pretty smart so why all the BS carnival tricks and kids games?

Yes, instead of trying to make it better, they want to dig a hole for all of us when we need to speak out about our government. Geeez, what are they thinking? Don`t ruin it for the rest of us. The government is going to see this as an attack and the next thing you know, no elections, and Bush telling us he is locking down this country.

You are right, if any change will come of these kinds of childish and borderline criminal activity that is generated from those boards, it will be the increased clamp down on the freedoms they say they are supporting.

Well with freedom comes responsibility, a responsibility to avoid ABUSING that freedom.

While those with no name will whine about it when the clampdown on the internet comes...

They will never accept blame, hell they won't even tell you who they are..

Why? Maybe because they are up to no good.

If you are behind the cause you should have the stones to be up front about it.

Thanks anonymous

DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service
CERT and TechTarget do a better job of explaining the term than I ever could.

here's anonymous in a nutshell:

- started as a collective movement on 4chan and newsgroups, with comments critical to scientology. After Scientology tried to censor the Tom Cruise video on youtube - members of 4chan somehow organized and started the Anonymous movement (allegedly).

4chan is essentially a message board frequented by lots of people with lots of time and lots of skills. Not a good site to piss off. In fact, earlier this year someone on a hip-hop related message board made a comment regarding how 4chan is full of racists or something to that effect, and their website was brought down for a long time, and they eventually lost data. members of the fallen website tried to join other forums while it was down, and the 4chan members followed them to the new sites, and shut those down too.

It's important to know the distinction between 4chan and anonymous. Both are technically "anonymous" groups (by definition) although the "Anonymous" that is related to Scientology has most certainly branched offline, and has formed a more structured movement.

Would you rather that they were making and detonating bombs and killing people then? This is a damn good way to protest and revolt PEACEFULLY, when others would resort to violence. Like for example, the police, who almost always instigate violence when dealing with protestors.

Thats the way I remember 4chan, and their very well organised and incitefull atack on 'Scientology" I would not put it past the scientology protectorate to be the ones posting the kiddie porn. But I also think they should be a bit more serious about their own security and realise that this kiddie pron thing can give them lots of trouble. They have a large group and should be a bit smarter in what they try to do. In other words clean up their own act before they piss off the Lion!!

Eh.

I've looked at 4chan a few times. Half the message board was dedicated to pornography and hentai. "Child" or not, that still tells you something about the lives those guys are really living. In addition, they would do well to remember that vigilantism is a crime in and of itself.

I will admit that Anon usually does a pretty good job of destroying their enemies, due to their "faceless" nature and decentralized movement. However, that's because they've picked the right battles in the past. They seem to forget that Fox News is the propaganda arm that paved the way for the Iraq War, the Patriot Act, and the reelection of a massively unpopular President. They're just some people on the Internet, best known for "bringing down" a religious organization that most people loathed to begin with.

They can boast about their influence all they want, but organizing protests and posting wildly on the Internet is still no match for the power of the MSM. Just ask Ron Paul about that! In addition to the legal troubles (and no, hiding behind proxies won't protect their identities) Fox could bring on them, Anonymous stands to lose all credibility in their other "wars."

Look at their battle against Scientology. If Anon calls the massive propagandist power of News Corporation down on them, nobody will take their actions seriously. If Fox paints them as a group of cyberterrorists to the public, then Scientology and anyone else they go to "war" with will end up being viewed as the victims.

And if News Corporation loses on that front, Fox could bring the entire free nature of the Internet under propagandist attack. Odds are, they've been waiting this whole time for some group like Anon to give them an excuse. Anonymous is playing with the big dogs now. Do they really want to get owned by this old prune?




Unlike Scientology, lolcats, and Habbo Hotel, Fox has the manpower and influence to have their protesters literally slammed face first into the pavement and arrested for "disturbing the peace" and various other made up crimes. Fox has the clout to have the FBI raiding 4chan's servers and setting up sting operations to put them all behind bars. They literally are "the powers that be." If they value their porn den, Anonymous will sit this one out.

Whaaat???? Where did I make that impression? And since when does it have to be a bombing to give the government an opening to do a lock down? What we may think of as being peaceful, they may not, they may look at it as an attack on the American people.
