i think this is the beginning if the cyber war,this will get ugly.

i'm also glad to see Anon step up and respond to this attack on MU,taking down MU pissed a lot of people off,people that were paying for service and legit users. i know it was used for "other" means,but what about the people who had important document's pictures ect.... they just call it a wash?

This is a false flag if I ever seen one, SOPA and PIPA fail so lets create a cyberwar to prove how important they are.

This is not going to stop happening until these tyrants are overthrown. They have the power to pull a false flag on anything. Problem, Reaction, Solution at it's finest I suppose.

Just so sad seeing what you read in history books playing out in front of your eyes.

Far from it, this is very real. No good turning everything into a conspiracy.

What are we going to do? Allow them to walk over "our internet", remove sites at will and we can all sit down and not make a peep?

The only way to teach these morons in the US government/corporations is to teach them a lesson. Anonymous are doing the right thing as always "Close my site, i'll close yours".

We don't need the US trying to police every single object and atom on this planet. This is a taster and a warning to the US on what will continually happen in the future if more sites are taken down due to SOPA/PIPA.

Censorship. Worse than china.

They can hack away until: a) they get caught or b) there is no internet left to hack.
What is to be gained here folks?

highly doubt anonymous had anything to do with it, looks too staged so SOPA can ride in and save the day.

Whether "Anonymous" is a government front or not, these type of actions are very bad for the internet. I hope they got some info worth something while they were on they're servers. That's the only way I would trust this the slightest bit. As of yet, we have not seen any great information released by anonymous.

No false flag here, just retaliation.

They can try and control the internet with their legislation but the internet is too smart, there will be ways around the rules. The US people just have to stop being pushovers and tell the government where to go and how to get there.

It used to be if you didn't like something your government was purposing then you told them not to and the government listened, now they don't care. But, worst of all people don't care that the government doesn't care, they think hey, we can't fight them.

If this passes, it is only the peoples fault. Stop being so damn stupid and demand the powers back!

Pred...

ETA: Oh and good on Anon, yes, it might only be a DDOS attack, but it's infinitely more than the people bitching about them do.

the internet itself when it comes down to it is electricity, good luck stopping the next man from inventing the next best form of communication thats technically not the internet and thus immune to bs like this, until it happens all over again because humans love repetition, just look at history.

I fail to see at this point how one cannot come to the conclusion that at least some members of anon, the hackers not the supporters, are plants. but thats another debate entirely. I said not yesterday what are the chances that the us govt would get hacked through if sopa goes through and BOOM. (and it hasn't even happened yet. mucho security on their end huh..so, good luck blocking half the world from their data.)

There is nothing about this retaliation on AnonymousMedia.org

This makes me think it could very well be a false-flag.

Does anyone know of a pastebin link where Anonymous declared retaliation? I have never seen them do anything without announcing it on pastebin.

Not what is to benefit but "who" benefits from this?

On topic.
It is funny, as someone above mentioned a kill switch.
They already have it, pull the plug outta the wall.
Of course they have the right to be secure in their cyber possessions but, it stops ay my right to mine.
So rather than making legislation on everyone, why not just make an additional duty for those who already work there.
His or her title can be, pull the plug guy.
Quite simple actually, if I ever felt like I was being hacked it is what I'd do.

Yea I was just thinking. If they could keep these sites down for like a month, THEN that would really show these enemies of freedom that the people have serious capabilities to serve justice.

Well, anonymous was formed from 4chan... if one were to say that anonymous is a government front, then sure... 4chan must also be a government owned website, which doesn't make much sense. It will always be known who does action on behalf of "the anonymous" because of the same views and the same end goal... If an "anonymous" does something against the interest of what they stand for.. it would be obvious in the case of an actual false-flag attack.

These kinds of things have been happening before the internet even went commercial previous to 1995. It's nothing new, it didn't end the internet then and it won't end the internet now. Even in the 1980's people were constantly cracking into military boxes over phone-lines and spreading worms, they even went as far to trade "boxes" in a similar fashion to trading cards.

It only seems like it's happening "more" and "more is because the media is covering almost every single hack or attack that happens, whereas prior to 2005 it hardly got reported as it seemed insignificant to the media.

PS; There has been heaps of information released by anonymous over the years. The most recent prime example being the HB Gary dump.
