Hi,

Paypal gives FBI list of IP Addresses of 1000 Anonymous hackers


Paypal collected 1000 IP addresses of those carrying out Anonymous' DDoS attacks against PayPal last December. To be fair the names on the list will probably be the bottom feeding script kiddies rather than the hackers at the top of Anomymous's greasy pole. The clever hackers know to mask their IP addresses first.


I really do not want to be part of those 1000 persons. They are going down fast.

Thanks,

It's a sad day when you call a script kiddie with LOIC a "hacker"...

I believe the script kiddies are the once using the LOIC. The Hackers are hiden and there is problery not that many hackers in between the 1000 IP addresses.

However, yeah it is about time that something is done. Perhaps it can scare the rest of the kiddies.

Can't these Anonymous hackers give the poor kids a simple lesson in camouflaging their IP addresses in exchange for doing the dirty work in their e-war? It seems like the least they could do.

This will probably help them out a little:

It isn't incredible difficult even for kiddies.

Maybe some of you have a few tips?

1000 hackers? Seems more likely that it's a small handful of hackers that could have easily used 1000 computers as bots for the attack.

I wonder how many of those thousand are legitimately involved and how many simply clicked "ok" on one pop-up too many. Time will tell.

It will deffently be very exciting to see how many is actually involved.

Also, it will cost the state loads and loads of money to follow up on it all.

actually through chatrooms and the use of a certain simple program, it's easy to get 1000s of people to DDOS, and the added bonus of masking and spoofing IP's makes it just as hard to catch those responsible.

I agree society needs to get some kind of handle on this "phenomenon" rather quickly. The rabbit hole goes very deep here. Who knows what code slumbers where waiting for the signal to take control of a billion personal computers? Or even beyond old-fashioned stuff there is now just so much raw information floating around that the potential for social engineering is mind-blowing.


Ultimately, society has to come to a new relationship with information. Quickly. We let us get ahead of ourselves on this one. We got to fix that. How? Join in the debate here on all these threads I guess. Believe it or not your voice does count here, maybe more than anywhere on this particular issue.

Anyway, bottom line: Yes this has to stop, soon. But at the same time you lock up some stupid kid you basically ruin their lives forever. If they are going to go around ruining lives I hope its not arbitrarily. Call me a softie but I think there should be an intermediate punishment between "nothing" and "lifelong prison record" for a teenager, espcially a script kiddie rather than a true l33t h4x0r.

Nice find.

In regards to the l33t h4x0r you are talking about, what do you think there punishment should be?

Are there not a real difference between whitehats and blackhats?

Whitehats meaning exploring and giving the hands up to the stuff they find.

Blackhats meaning ruining and stealing and making stuff there shoulnt be public public.

I think there is a massive difference there.

Also for the game crackers and shares, I used to a pretty good share with a 150GB uploaded in 5 months so far when I had my 100/100 Mbit.

I dont feel I done anything criminel really since the sale statistics says that most people downloading and uploading actually buy a lot of the stuff they "steal". Me for example.

Unfortunately you don't need to be a "Hacker" ( as they call it ) to be part of that 1000.
All you need is for your computer to be infected and remotely controlled by someone else, as are many..

Ohh but wont they just pick up your pc? Go trough your p0rn and your stuff? - Checking your pc and then identify if you are part of a net? - I am much more afraid of my MP3 files than I am of being infected with a botnet.

I rather take 1 - 2 weeks in a cell than I pay the enourmesly amount of money many of those 1000 will be fined for illegal music and movies.

PS: Someone please give me my 50 flag. I collect them

Either the FBI and PayPal are complete morons, or they are taking us to be complete morons. The hackers would not be stupid enough to do this without some sort of heavy protection. I can guarantee of those 1000 IP's, the majority are people unaware that their IP was used.

Anyway companies like PayPal deserve everything they get, they are greedy and corrupt, they support the most corrupt in society. We need people to stand up to them and take them down.

NoPal and ebay are the bigest scammers going and when it suites them to say they are the same cpmpany they do and when it doesen't, they don't.

Rover.ebay.com is tracking you as you sign in for email and sending the URL that often includes a unique ID back to ebay servers and i would guess nopal get to use this information.

The police won't go near these two criminals.

For me specifically nothing is wrong with Paypal as i use it for transactions (although, sometimes there's no other alternative).
But i did disagree with them blocking donations to Wikileaks (although, i also don't donate to Wikilks).
It is the priciple of the matter. It was not for them to decide.
