Can't take down Facebook or Twitter? They just did MasterCard, Visa, and PayPal...They can take down Facebook/Twitter for sure. They're starting to get much publicity, many others who wouldn't have noticed without the publicity will join. The more they are, the more they acquire power. Imagine if they take down Facebook and other major sites. They'll have cover on T.V. Info War I will begin right there. This is incredible!

Maybe I'm too optimistic, but damn!

GET UP STAND UP!
STAND UP FOR YOU RIGHTS!

Why would they not have the power? Please explain.
I would think if they can take down Mastercard they could probably at least hurt Facebook or Twitter. I think its naive to underestimate a group like that especially when they are obviously passionate about their cause.


Because those sites have zero measures against such actions and really have a small traffic flow compared to Facebook or Twitter.

Facebook and Twitter are capable of handling a far greater load of traffic thus enabling them to withstand a DDOS attack a great deal better.

At least that's what a DDOS attack does from my understanding, I may be totally wrong.


You are actually wrong in your conclusion but not in your first part...

In a DDoS attack, yes the size of the site does matter as it relates to how many systems are required.

However if you note in the largest Bot-Net to date there are 30 million systems...

Given that information, I'll let you draw another conclusion.

SD, this was part of the anti-white hat stuff I was talking about in another thread.

So there are black hat hackers who like to attempt to make a fool of white hat hackers (like myself).

Anti-sec is one of those groups... They are like a puppy, fun to have around, but you do have to clean up after them. :-)

Isn't it interesting how twitter did not close down the account of th3j3st3r (The Jester) who claimed to DDOS Wikileaks but closed down Anonops account. Goes to show whose side twitter is on.
