Anonymous targets US Chamber of Commerce website


www.thinq.co.uk


Online mischief makers Anonymous are set to launch a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on the website of the US Chamber of Commerce later today, in retaliation for the organisation's support for the draft PROTECT IP Act.

The 'hacktivist' collective announced it would launch the DDoS attack at 20:00 Eastern Standard Time.

the 'Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property' Act - 'PROTECT IP', for short - will allow US Justice Department

I personally think this is wrong and also believe Anonymous is part of the CIA.

These are e-terror attacks and it will just give govt. more power over the internet.

Sony's PS3 attack will cost Sony somewhere around 1.5BN to 3BN so of course this will anger wannabee-socialists, I say socialists because they will want govt. to take control over e-commerce eventually, watch!

Anonymous is a terroist organization and should be shut down, these are not non-violent protests, they are attacks that end up costing alot of money, nobody here at ATS should be supporting this terroist organization!

Boy you already got your pitchfork and torch out, eh? How do you know Anon was responsible for the Sony attack? How do you know it wasn't another group? Oh because the main news story said the hacker left a file on the server with the name Anonymous? What would you be saying if Anon didn't happen to appear at a time when the government wanted to shut down the internet and it was some lone hacker? Would you be decrying that we have to stop the "all terrorist hackers". Your response to this whole charade is that to of an idiot who wanted the Patriot Act to be put into place after 9/11.
Sorry, but calling it how I see it.

Anonymous is not "a part of the CIA". Anonymous is everyone and at the same time no one.

So, that said, the CIA could easily use Anonymous as a mask to launch these attacks. That's the problem with being Anonymous, anyone can do anything like this claiming to represent them.

That is not to say I do not support Anon generally.

Not when i'm done with them

And why would you say that about me?
Because I spoke my mind and in response you decided NOT to speak yours?

Anon said it wasn't them, I realize that
But online attacks are online attacks

I wasn't saying that Anon did that to Sony, I was putting them in the same basket because online attacks are online attacks and are violent in nature.

You should not say such a thing
Because when you give power to mystery you are only adding mystery to power.

Yes i agree with you,
The ideology of being anonymous means anyone can use the mask to ahive the goals they want...
History shows this all the time, blaming others for starting something, a mask so to speak on the truth...
red flags

but the true power is the people

Why not? I'm merely saying what they are and what they have been since they popped up all those years ago, before the MSM and governments started to pay attention to them.

Most of Anon are just normal people, and they can only really operate effectively if enough people go with the wave. In that sense Anon is a democracy.

I'm not saying they're perfect and I'm not saying we should trust Anonymous entirely. I am sure most self-proclaimed Anonymous would say the exact same thing.

EDIT: In fact, it may be just better to say I trust Anonymous as much as I trust people in general, which isn't very much, I'll give you. But I trust "people" more than TPTB.

I'm not reposting that word for word in another supposed "anon" thread. Anon doesn't have the collective balls to launch against a governmental agency. Stop spreading BS.

What violence? Where is the violence? Are you referring to a server that can't take the load and respond to its peer clients? The poor server being savagely beaten?
