congradulating such actions is premature
this is one more nail in the coffin of internet freedom, every attack is one more excuse to regulate the internet until we have no internet freedoms left.
We will believe we do just as we believe we have a choice of who to vote for.

This is awesome!!

They need to go after bigger people but it appears they only go after people that have done something to them. Why not the higher ups? They are screwing everyone including Anon.

How do I join this movement?


I want to be a super cool hacker that's a total badass.

Are you serious??

Take away the internet and the western revolts will make the Egyptian situation look like a normal day at the office...

That's the LAST thing TPTB should do..
Millions of angry people with no cyber space to vent their anger would probably vent it on real people instead...

Love the work Anon does. Glad we finally have someone powerful on the good side.

I love all the people who say "Anonymous is just a bunch of script kiddies who run DDoS tools at a target"

To them, I say - "Where is your god now?"

Anon is an amazingly capable and tenacious group of human beings. They are very loosely organaized and have mastered the task of putting together projects and executing them perfectly and with panache.

I think you are the one who is joking, the west revolt?
as long as they have Idol, superbowl and any other mind numbing dribble, there will be no revolt.

TPTB own the media and teach your average joe six pack that there is a group of hackers who will compromise the security of not only your own countries, but also the safety of their children.

how many revolts have their been in the west from the introduction of body scanners in airports and the choice of being groped by the TSA?

new laws get passed under the guise of national security and the net is slowly being tightened without anyone noticing.
change doesn't happen over night that will alarm the masses, it happens gradually and before they notice they have lost what they thought was freedom,

Fine but take away their internet and how do you think they would respond??
That's ALL the social interactions and on line gaming.
I doubt TPTB would risk that..

to control the net does not stop people from using it, it means restricting the ability to access and content just like China does, they still have gamers and people using the net, just restricted.

Butt seriosly, why do CEO's have the need to use Twitter.
Apart from other CEO's do it because it's percieved to be trendy and cool, does it actually do anything.
When ever I think of Social Networking, it always reminds of Amway, and Amway = P O N Z I Schemes = C R A P

So why can't you sell this information to the FBI? Because we are going to give it to them for free!


That right there is gold!


Agree that sentiments is a quite a kicker, I wonder how much HGBary were gonna charge the FBI .. lol

There is a 4GB torrent with every last word in it... some encrypted with pgp but you can download the key and program to decrypt for free.

I hate to admit it, but I have e-pals who know this guy and hate him with a passion. He is corrupt and crooked from every angle. Everything from cutting benefits to employees to completely faking a security firm, not to mention the guy is just an a**hole.

Anyway, this thread deserves more attention.

S&F this one people.

Hearing stories like this makes me smile.

But then again.... when someone does something like this would only give the govt more resolve to limit the internet and whatever...

pros and cons in this... the pros got conned...

Anonymous is needed in these times, they could be the true beginning of the resistance


Looking forward to what unfolds next

Well since youre such an expert can you please explain how the internet which is networks within networks can be regulated? any 2 pc's anywhere can make a network, how do you propose they regulate all pc's? Hmmmmmmm?

That would require the freedom of speech to first be amended in the USA, but the worlds internet does not stop just because the USA goes offline...

S&F

I commend us all.
For we all are Anonymous.
We Are Legion.
We Are All That Was, And Will Ever Be.
We don't Forgive.
We don't Forget.
Mess with us, and expect a disproportionate, and decisive retaliation.

Bring on The Web 2.0, we will kick it's ass back to where it belongs - in the cesspool, a.k.a. Washington D.C.

You poke an angry bear with a big stick and what do you get.... pwned by anonymous!!!

As others mentioned, pro's and con's in this, the winner of this battle is anonymous no doubt about it. And this is a massive PR win for them too. This will have every website owner on the defensive now, and hopefully restore a bit of people power and FEAR into TPTB.

Anyone else notice how the media has gone all quiet on anything related to wikileaks now? I wonder if they too are too scared to actually get involved and commentate on the cables.

I am hardly an expert on how the internet works, but I will give it a shot.

ISP's are privately owned and currently in most countries are free to let their customers do basically whatever they like.
a law could be passed that ISP's now have to keep a log of every site you visit and say they are trying to stop internet piracy,
GOP pushing for ISPs to record user data



The House Republicans' first major technology initiative is about to be unveiled: a push to force Internet companies to keep track of what their users are doing. A House panel chaired by Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin is scheduled to hold a hearing tomorrow morning to discuss forcing Internet providers, and perhaps Web companies as well, to store records of their users' activities for later review by police. Read more: news.cnet.com...

cnet

now you may be clever enough to get around that, but you still have to connect to the network to pay bills, check emails, facebook, movies.
now lets say that someone discovers that a site is allowing people download movies or music.
ThePirateBay down.It’s officially Closed! ?



Regular torrent user must be aware of the ongoing case trial going on with ThePirateBay.org website which is one of the widely used public torrent website around the web. The final court trial has decided to imprison the Swedish founders (Four Pirate bay founders) for 1 year as they have caused a huge loss for business industries by encouraging piracy and providing free download links for movies, videos, music and software. Along with this the Pirate bay operators are demanded to pay whopping 12 million dollars! source


and then we have people like Rupert Murdoch who hates losing money and is wanting to bring in a pay per view subscription fee to the internet., I do bellieve that there are already subscription sites.

if I recall correctly, 7000 blog sites where closed by the US goverment? (no riot or revolt)

so slowly an ISP can be pressured to prevent you from going to sites and recording your movements.

here is a tasty little titbit
Australian Senator Stephen Conroy is the minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy
this particular senator is trying to pass a bill to put a mandatory filter on our broadband to prevent Australians from looking at certain sites, of course all to protect the children.

here is a headline for you
Senator Stephen Conroy appointed by United Nations ITU



The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nation’s specialised agency for communications, made the appointment in Geneva as it announced the establishment of a top level Broadband Commission for Digital Development. Senator Conroy said the new Commission would define strategies for accelerating broadband rollout worldwide. The Commission has the support of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who will receive the Commission’s findings at the UN MDG Summit in New York in September.

so the noose is already tightening and stunts like this from Anonomous and wikileaks are just speeding it up.

I know many people dislike anonymous but you really have to hand it to them, when you go after them they come back in force. These people are just doing their best to uphold freedom, granted some of their tactics are a little suspect but this is simply a result of politicians ignoring the voices of the people.

You reap what you sow and the politicians have created an environment where voices of the people are rarely heard, so expect more organisations like anonymous to pop up. Of course it won't be long before anonymous is deemed a serious terrorist threat and various members are arrested.

Free speech is far too dangerous to any modern political system.
