Anonymous Hacks BART


thenextweb.com

The hacking is part of a carefully planned effort by Anonymous to bring BART to its knees in retaliation for its shutdown of cell phone service Thursday night at some of its stations to disrupt planned demonstrations over a police shooting.

Anonymous was pretty quick on this one. I know there are some mixed feelings out there in regards to anonymous, but I for one am a supporter, at least they're doing something.
I checked the BART site and it looked like it was up, they must have fixed it already.
This shut down cell phone stuff that BART did yesterday, and that they're proposing in the UK is straight out of Mubarak's playbook I'm glad someone stood up to these censors.

What do they have to hack to make you a non supporter?

How about they release all your private bank details and private info to the world ?

Where do you draw the line? I draw the line at them attacking the common people, such as myself, and MY information. sure go attack companies and governments where it is justified and in the right way, but leave the common people out of it.

Attacking facebook is an attack on the common people that use it, that is where I draw the line.

I have been caught up in lulzsec attacks, not a nice thing.

Yeah the shutting down of cell towers to prevent a legal protest is appalling.

Good job Anonymous.

I tried to put this video my original post but it didn't do it. I've never started a thread in this forum before, it's kinda set up different than the others, anyhow, here's the video.

Its a good idea to protest against what happened and i agree with what they said in the video that turning off the phone signal was dangerous and underhanded but with the FBI cracking down on anyone that is part of Anon i doubt there will be to many people out there wearing masks waiting around to get picked up by the police. Its easy for Anon to ask people to demonstrate on their behalf but they are not the ones who will be getting arrested.

It will be great if loads of people turn up and there is a successful demonstration and BART learns a lesson for what they did but i wouldnt bet on it happening that way.I will be very interested to see what happens tomorrow.

I applaud anybody fighting back against the fascist BART, but even the most successful action by Anonymous will pale in comparison to what those murdering nazis deserve.

Interrupting essential services is bad.

Interrupting other essential services is...?

Are you absolutely positively certain that we shouldn't all close our eyes, shut up, lie down and take it up the buttocks quite passively and peacefully?

Also, I've been wondering: Do Anonymous' shenanigans qualify as non-violent civil disobedience?


Thanks, sofi

I'm curious to see what will happen in november with the Facebook action. Anon is a very compelling element on the global theater, along with Julian Assange. Even though they aren't officially connected there is something there.

This will either be a huge element in global culture over the next decade or it will pass away as a fad. This is true democratic anarchy. No real central control, just a group of like minded individuals who agree on a target and take it down.

I do agree that if these attacks start to focus on the population or private individuals it will become a negative force for change. However even though I am a member I don't see an attack on facebook as such a crime.

This Bart thing is either the beginning of something much bigger, or the end of something big, but not big enough. I think the facebook action in november will tell us which.

Police shut down cell phones, Anonymous shuts down BART si... Hypocrisy or eye for an eye? I will probably always have mixed feelings about these 'operations'. It's entertaining either way at least.

Anonymous is an Idea, and everyone does have the power (not just hackers)... Please watch whole video but pay attention to what you and anyone can do which starts around 8:50

The Monday evening protest is awesome. I hope that a lot of people show up for it and that it will be a peaceful event.

The stealing and releasing of the user data database may hurt BART. It may also hurt individuals who used BART's online services (after all it is their info and not BART's). Why should those user's be made to pay when they had nothing to do with the decision to block cell phone activity?

Can you imagine San Francisco burning like London? Can you imagine looting and rioting there? I can imagine that BART wanted to avoid that.

Not saying that I agree with BART's actions. They are wrong. But so is the stealing and releasing of data of people who had nothing to do with BART's actions.

What would stop those that oppose Anonymous, just turning up to that protest wearing the Vendetta masks and turning it violent on purpose for all the media to see?

This is one of the problems with this 'identity', it can be used by both sides.

I admire true 'whistle blowing' if it does not jeopardise our security, though I am not comfortable with how these guys have taken it upon themselves to represent the common folk without any consultation or consent for that matter.

You know, American soldiers kill innocent children and families in the line of fire in a senseless war that brings no peace.

Are you dead? Have you been shot, or physically injured? Does Anonymous not want peace, and freedom?

Close minded thinking like this is immature and selfish, no one is being killed. If you end up as a casualty to a war that is for the people and for peace and open-government, then you should accept your loss in sights of a new future.

We either sit back and let the world destroy our individuality and make it near impossible for growth and transformation from a demented society, or we start fighting back now - and yes, there will be casualties, as there is in any war.

I can't wait for them to take Facebook offline. The world is growing ever more dependant on it and 99% of people do not even realise that everything (photos, personal info etc.) is no longer owned by you and can be sold to companies/agencies/departments and the like. I'm sick of people talking about who said what on facebook and why, it's absolute bollocks. Bring back face to face socialising and interaction! Stop the information trade at the cost of unsuspecting citizens. So really, it is Facebook Anonymous are going after- not the people who use it, give it a chance and I'm sure you will feel liberated.

Well then it sucks to be you.

Wars don't have lines, and everyone is a target. You may not like it, but the government has initiated a war on its own people without your consent. That makes you a target. In war, the only way to not be involved, is to leave. This is a new war that more or less encompasses all modern innovations. It's no different than when the Russians burned their own farms when Napoleon came along. Sucks if your farm was one of the ones burned, but now you don't have to worry about foreign aggression.

Basically, war sucks. And no rules made by man stops its unfortunate stomping on all.
