Actually very little volume anymore gets routed to the floor of the NYSE.

It mostly comes from electronic trading venues such as BATS

It is very decentralized. I don't find any of this credible at all, but if they manage to accomplish any of this it will be hilarious. But probably not for most peoples pocketbooks. So, it will be funny, but it will hurt while you laugh.

Anon has done a lot more than DDoS attacks (e.g. BART) and a few foreign government sites as well. Anon is more than a few script kiddies playing on mommy's computer. Also remember that Anon is not just Hackers. Anon is a movement and one of the greatest ideas of modern times.

Two quotes come to mind when think about Anon.

1. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope...build(ing) a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance ~Robert F. Kennedy

2. Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order ~John V. Lindsay

A DDOS is nothing more than an inconvenience.

Anon Should REALLY GO UNDERGROUND.

An old woman has been be much more effective than anon (and without even knowing it)!

75-year-old woman cuts off Internet to Georgia and Armenia

And it only takes a $5 Wal-Mart Axe, with a bicycle tube over the handle, and a crowbar to lift a cover -

I can't say i agree with everything Anonymous have done, however a lot of the messages behind their projects have been of a libertarian nature which i can only agree with


All it takes is the right message to motivate people.

I recall there being plenty of threads about the banker bail outs before they happened.



How do you consider the banker bailouts a crime? There was no 'crime' committed. A whole bunch of STUPIDITY, by the American people...but to say it was a 'crime'...is rather LAME! And people actually gave you all those stars?

Nah, see...a crime would be more like 3 illegal wars....started by the same man, who needed YOU to bailout his buddies! I think it's called....CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY! But hey, OK...let's call the "rescue package" a "crime".

They shouldn't do it on a specific date...

They should do it when the stocks are low and the market panicking. Then go in, do the DDOS, have someone cut the hard connection, and if possible go after their back servers as well.

That would be interesting. A simple DDOS is not
we already know you are capable of doing that.

Like what?

If they put restrictions on the internet, it won't be anon's fault it will be because we let it happen. Just like we let the wars happen, just like we let the bailouts happen, and everything else we let these scumsuckers get away with. Action speaks louder than words.

I couldnt agree more.
star for you my friend for speaking the obvious truth, we kept our heads buried in the sand for decades and watched this happen and done nothing to stop it. "our government would never lie to us or do anything to harm us". Well we see how well that worked out for us.

Change requires action.
I would truly be amazed if they pulled it off.

Are they going after Julian's title as "The Most Dangeriouse man in the world", thing. it's a nice
title to have but i think it's a little over-rated. who ever came up with that concept cracks me up.
Asange doesn't have nuclear wepons redy to go at a touch of a button.
sorry off topic. They won't have it down for more than a few minutes at best. they would have
to get the back-up surver as well as individaul records of trades. nice bit of protesting
but not the end of the world type thing.
Could also be a fake out, see what protections are amped up, counters measures ect.
there would have to be a double inside the feds to get any real data though

Yeah sure, if you could get enough people to go along with that plan.
Good luck with that but I say people on the whole are far too scared to take that kind of action.

I will say what I always tell anyone that asks me about IT Security.
Security will only slow down someone who really wants to get in.
Given enough time and effort a hacker can get into anything.

However I do think that the hurdles the NYSE have in place are pretty high ones.
You have to understand that corporations usually have stricter IT Policies in place than regular companies.
Things like SASS 70 and SSAE 16 are standard. Security is stricter.

Getting in won't be as easy.

I agree to a certain extent. I do not know who is orchestrating this, but i do know that the ramifications are going to make life tougher for everyone.


Exactly! We don't need anymore issues, we have enough. These people think they are helping when they aren't.

I remember when they took down Pay Pal and everyone was all for it well I wasn't. I know people who lost money because of it so how in the world did that help anyone?! These people need to stop! There are other ways to prove a point and they are just making it easier for them to put restrictions on the internet.


Oooh, did someone take down paypal !
Well I lost money from them just being theives - also neteller are theives too. I gave up after those 2. Both have inheritted the mainstream banks strategy of ' make em run around and around until they get so frustated that they die of a heart attack.'

I called it a crime because I am neither naive nor am I stupid.

If you don't consider billion dollar bailouts not authorized by the tax payer a crime, then you can sit there and stew in your own ignorance for all I care. I can already tell that you have some type of agenda, judging by your rhetoric about three illegal wars being started by the same man.

And yes, 3 illegal wars are crimes against humanity. But that doesn't make the fact that the US taxpayer was raped by the Bush and Obama Administrations and stuck with the tab any less of a crime.

If you are a United States citizen, and you support "rescue packages", you are supporting crony capitalism and you are aligning yourself with a pack of treasonous jackals.
