Mastercard's site is working, but they have this on their page.


MasterCard has made significant progress in restoring full-service to its corporate website. Our core processing capabilities have not been compromised and cardholder account data has not been placed at risk. While we have seen limited interruption in some web-based services, cardholders can continue to use their cards for secure transactions globally.

Well thanks for editing your post ridding it of the comment of fulfilling the void of entertainment in your life because of being sick or something to that degree. And under that my comment wouldn't appear as so hateful and attacking would it?




DOSing mastercard.com isn't 'attacking the public' - it's attacking the face of an international corporate entity that has publicly disowned WikiLeaks, allegedly because they were put under pressure to do so.


Last time I checked "the public" uses mastercard and it has everything to do with the public. And I will point out the statement of allegedly which points more twords implying not fact.

It looks like the connections to the servers are the ones being stressed with these attacks, not the servers.

That's the only explanation I see for some people accessing some sites and other people not being able to do it.

Even without Wiki, I can see peoples anger with PayPal. When it comes to Pay they are not your Pal.
Then there's the whole Ebay PayPal thing, Crikey, is there any wonder why so many hate PayPal.
And Wiki was just another reason to hate PayPal.

Anon is just getting warmed up, all of this depends on if it catches on and more and more people start firing against the corporate sites......

But I am afraid this is exactly what the government wants - I expect some new laws to be passed shortly and several sites will be taken down....(including 4chan) People say they will just move to another site, but I fear Internet 2.0 will be made reality.

If this does happen, I would start getting ready for the SHTF event. TPTB will be able to ramp up their agenda when people are unable to stay informed via the internet.

My editing out of 'while I have a chest infection' doesn't change the tone of your post, sorry. It still sounds a bit wrong. If I got the wrong end of the stick tho then I apologise. That aside....

I don't agree that attacking the mastercard site is 'attacking the public.' If the payment infrastructure was being undermined then I'd agree with you, but it's not. People not being able to apply for new credit cards or read mastercard marketting-speak for a few hours isn't a disaster imo.

As for the apparent pressure put on mastercard to drop WikiLeaks... I completely agree with you, that's why I put in 'allegedly' - it does seem a bit convenient that several big corps all dropped WL at the same time tho, don't you think?

The group coordinating the DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack was posting on twitter under the username Anon_Operation, but twitter have very recently (in the last 30 mins?) banned the account.

The whole thing is a spin off from "Operation Payback" (google is your friend), a group who organise DDOS attacks against anti-piracy groups.

It does feel a bit like we're watching a huuuuuge game of chess being played out.

Current events could end up being the trigger for new internet-controlling laws.... but having said that, the public (particularly in Europe) are more and more willing to take to the streets. If TPTB try to seriously clamp down on the internet then it could get *very* interesting *very* quickly.

DataCell Statement

We strongly believe a world class company such as Visa should not get involved by politics and just simply do their business where they are good at. Transferring money. They have no problem transferring money for other businesses such as gambling sites, pornography services and the like so why a donation to a Website which is holding up for human rights should be morally any worse than that is outside of my understanding.

The Govt is getting just a TAD bit out of hand on this.

Will reading WikiLeaks cost students jobs with the federal government?

Sorry if I came off as being rude and offending you, I was just trying to say if thats what you believe in then great your standing behind it and that takes courage and strength I disagree but applaud.




I don't agree that attacking the mastercard site is 'attacking the public.' If the payment infrastructure was being undermined then I'd agree with you, but it's not. People not being able to apply for new credit cards or read mastercard marketting-speak for a few hours isn't a disaster imo.


Again in my opinion by them simply taking away peoples freedom to apply or do whatever they do on those sites seems counter logical to their cause and grievances.




As for the apparent pressure put on mastercard to drop WikiLeaks... I completely agree with you, that's why I put in 'allegedly' - it does seem a bit convenient that several big corps all dropped WL at the same time tho, don't you think?


Yes suspicious indeed, makes one wonder if it is tied directly to wikileaks then why wasn't it done months ago? Was it purposely let to evolve into the situation it has become because of :
A: The government didn't take it seriously and turned the proverbial cheek?
B: Because just like wikileaks the government knows exactly what they want from this whole crisis, never let a good crisis go to waste?
C: The Annuki and plant x interfered with our dimension and threw us into another plane of reality?

I am going with B.

Once again I apologize if I came off a little harsh. Drink thera-flu by the gallon!!!

Now, unless they start hooking people up to a Polygraph for an Job Interview and ask:

Have you ever looked at or downloaded material from Wikileaks?
Do you believe Wikileaks contains correct and factual information?
Do you believe Wikileaks has a right to exist?
Do you believe in God?

It is actually happening right now for anyone in doubt.

I've been getting reports come through all day on my iPhone's "Mashable" app, and the latest headline reads "Hackers take down visa.com in retaliation to Julian Assange's arrest".

Guess what, I just checked www.visa.com and it IS DOWN, as of 01:18 UK GMT.

See for yourself...

www.visa.com

No Anonymous is not attacking Interpol as far as I know. I dont know how you came up with that...I have heard absolutely nothing about this. It could be some other group or a different part of Anonymous who are attacking Interpol, if true.

The targets are specific at the moment for the main Anonymous

* PostFinance.ch
* Paypal

In future there may be some attacks on (note: these targets are in pipeline)
* Swedish prosecutor websites
* French Govt. websites
* The Jester ( who claimed to DDOS Wikileaks) - Efforts are being made to trace him but the talks floating around is US official cyber teams were behind the DDOS attacks on Wikileaks..
* Time's website
* & probably twitter

Edit Correction:
OP is correct, Operation Payback is behind it.
edit on 8-12-2010 by EFGuy because: (no reason given)


Why would the government need some covert cyber teams DDOSing Wikileaks? They could easily shut wikileaks down like they did before but permanently and if that doesn't work Obama has pretty much total control over the internet

Pretty much means that NO ONE IS HACKING... You guys need to learn the difference between DDOSing and actually hacking. A DDOS just jams up the server with too much ping, if someone was able to "get in" and actually # # up or look at confidential documents/files then its HACKING

The funny thing is that the psychophant, pro-terror war Republicans can't attack any sites but wikileaks because every company and government is their "Daddy."

So other than the company having/ to pay for extra bandwidth, what is the point? I have enjoyed some of their previous work, but honestly I only became aware of the group a few months ago.

Also, if the attack doesnt cause any permanent damage is it illegal? Let's say all of ats downloads the program to assist and they reach their target number of computers to disrupt the sites. Would we all be visited by law enforcement?

thanks for the reply.


If (I am picking up a totally random name here)
say for example Mr. Soros.. who is a known financial market contrarian apart from also having connections with wikileaks and Assange (a contrarian usually tries to push someone to lose and then he gains from these loses) has been positioning for example around Mastercard stocks dropping (which they actually did) then he might have gained a small fortune (again) all the while some people think they are attacking "the system".
Been laughing so hard with the stupidity of this armchair revolution of wikileaks and all that hype about hacking and downing of sites etc etc. and people lending their time and PCs for illegal attacks that are supposedly anonymous with no way of knowing about anyone else that might be collecting information while they participate in said "attacks", might even be the very authorities. There might be another catch from all this for "the System". (this one might be just a bonus) They are closer each time to push for limiting of freedoms on the internet.

Yet people are so stupid they actually help the System win against them because it's an "easy" revolution..you only need an armchair and a screen monitor for these kind of revolutions...

It's not just stupid. it is also pathetic.
