if this is how they take down anonymous, its amazing to me. sony playstation was the straw that broke the camel's back? not amex, not banks, but my ps3?

the story says they can go after them because they were trying to get credit card info. but you know that is the scam excuse the dFeds have squared in on.

Maybe there's more to the Sony thing (play station) than anybody is saying, and that's what caused the arrests?
Besides, if someone is anonymous, seems TBTB sure know a lot about "who" is ANONYMOUS?

Truth is meant for everyone...with hold the Truth...well, crap happens. Eventually, someone will let the cat out the bag, and when they do, you will see that it was staring you in the face all the time.

Now this is entirely supposition, but; There seems no greater threat to the government and the corporate establishment that Anonymous should become global folk heroes.

There are many independent 'little helpers' that enjoy the thrill of doing something that makes them a problem, and Anonymous won't be running to their aid. Some of these 40 had best be prepared to understand the depth of the water into which they plunged, and the true nature of self-sacrifice.

We'll see how this ends... but most know that lacking inside information, Anonymous cannot be observed directly.

Of course, "anyone" can be accused of being a member of the Anonymous movement. The digital world has it's perils.

Ok 1 major problem...What if they just say they were anon? how would you fight that...I doubt they will burn them at the stake...But you could almost say any atser or conspiracy theorist in general...

What I'm wondering is what the ones that aren't in custody will do now that their friends are taken in. What if they retaliate?

I don't think we'll ever know for certain, but I wouldn't be surprised if those 40 people didn't even know each other.

Typing with caps lock on?

Don't worry, if anyone is openly claiming to be anon they aren't, even the FBI isn't stupid enough to fall for that, though they may add these people to their lists for extensive surveillance of their online activities, just in case they can find something worthy of further actions.

What anonymous is or isn't, is just as illusive as who they REALLY are.

Good luck.

They cracked TOR and oinion routing a while ago. So the government knows who you are if they decide to spend the time to find you.

www.zdnet.com...



Amidst concerns that pedophiles are using public Tor (the Onion Router) servers to trade in child pornography, über-hacker HD Moore is building a tracking system capable of pinpointing specific workstations that searched for and downloaded sexual images and videos of kids.

Moore, the brains behind the Metasploit Project, has come up with a series of countermeasures that include using patched Tor servers and a decloaking engine to detect the exact location of a pedophile within an organization or residence.

Moore first discussed his "countermeasures" at a meeting of the Austin Hackers Association (AHA) last summer when it became clear that the EFF-backed anonymity/privacy network was being used for the most nefarious purposes. Further confirmation came last September when German authorities cracked down on Tor node operators because of the proliferation of child porn.

In an e-mail interview, Moore said the plan is to release the source code, which will allow anyone to run a patched Tor server to help pinpoint pedophiles online.


Im sure they just used pedophiles as a way to get this spying passed. If you just asked to spy on TOR they would say no add its to get evil pedophiles and they all will sign on and let you spy on TOR.

This PS3 incident offered a great opportunity to give my 12-year-old a lesson in current events.

The poor kid is going into PS3 withdrawal.

We talked about WikiLeaks, DDOS attacks, Sony's position on jailbreakers etc.

He weighed both sides of the issue and guess whose position he decided is justified?

Anonymous

Little rebel.

Apr 22 2011 Update On PlayStation Network/Qriocity Services
+ Posted by Patrick Seybold // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media
An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.


Sony has shut down service. There not being attacked. They are simply trying to fix there own bugs. And im sure they have hacker insurance and are still making plenty of money. People not being able to play a video game im sure doesn't mean much to them since there the ones who took the service from them.

Did anyone watch the video? There were not 40 arrest warrants they were search warrants and no American arrests, and only 5 arrests in the UK.

Most likely they are dumb kids who think it is cool to run some of Anons scripts and feel like they are part of Anon and are insignificant really.
