Does anyone actually understand what a DDoS attack is here?
A few people clicking a link isn't going to do very much.

It takes thousands of computers to bring today's servers down.
Especially those with fiber bandwidth.

What do people think bot net attack means? Its what they've been doing for ages.......By the way you guys and your fear of damn near everything SICKENS me. Get off your lazy conspiracy butts and put your money where your ever whining mouths are. You want to fight the government it's all half of you go on about, now that its happening you hide your cowardice by dubbing everything a "false flag" This site is a joke.

wow, where to begin, OK well SOPA/PIPA have a lot to do with Anonymous DDOS'ing (strange context, but true) however it was not Directly that reason, it was for MEGAUPLOAD being taken down and not only is Anon upset, but some in Hiphop are upset as well.


the internet blackout caused MSN awareness ( it was too big to ignore at this point, which is what the MSN was doing to those opposed to SOPA/PIPA ) So Obama publicly said SOPA/PIPA was bad, after Hollywood put him in office last time, so to appease his west coast masters, he took down MEGAUPLOAD, (which , oddly enough was just going legit and giving artists 90% of income, Vs legacy labels that give 18% at best)

So, with help from the RIAA of course and it has an ongoing lawsuit with UMG, it was removed so Anon got pissed and the DDOS happened

I think it would be awesome if this works because then it can become a form of online civil disobedience

Just put up links to sites you want to show protest too.

US.gov would never recover nor congress or senate

edit to add if you think the US wont prosecute clicking a link, look what they have already done.

personally im suprised i haven't been shot in the head yet so misclicking and 'going to jail without collecting £200' doesn't bother me so much. plus I don't use facebook or twitter.

I assume these are blatent like viagra spam? (or 'youve just won the spanish lottery', pick your poison)

I highly doubt that just clicking
on a link would
shut down wall-st.
It asks for log-in;

I can't see how it could unless 20,000,000 people did
all at once and kept refreshing.
(just saying that I doubt it)

Another reason to use the noscript extension if you use firefox. This extension disables all such scripts by default so you can control which sites are allowed to run such scripts.
This helps against sites/adservers that spread malware as well.

Either way i think this is wrong and will not help their cause.

if you wish to get involved I recommend installing TOR checking out the hidden wiki

With Tor running Hidden Wiki: kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.onion...

Getting Tor to stay anonymous: www.torproject.org...


On the "darknet" is info on using botnets for helping anon. And using tor keeps you anonymous and encrypted.

there is a whole "web under the web" on tor, tons of .onion sites. That can only be got to on Tor which anonymizes your ip and is used to keep people safe online.

Appelbaum the US member of wikileaks is one of the project managers for Tor


you can read an article on Tor and Appelbaum here: www.rollingstone.com...

I am surprised at the comments stating that you can't be imprisoned for clicking a link..are you serious? You can be incarcerated without being charged..indefinitely.

Have you not been keeping up with the takeover?

Peace

Right
, then why haven't they taken it down ? ? ?,
after all they've taken down Mega upload.
If they have knowingly left it on
the web then shouldn't they hold some responsibility ?

I have no problem with this.

If it serves to take down the money masters and the elite, use my laptop.

There's a key point in all of this that we missed in our earlier analysis about paid accounts at Megaupload. In the indictment, the government seems to assume that paid accounts are clearly all about illegal infringing works. But that's not always the case. In fact, plenty of big name artists -- especially in the hip hop world -- use the paid accounts to make themselves money. This is how they release tracks. You sign up for a paid account from services like Megaupload, which pay you if you get a ton of downloads. For big name artists, that's easy: of course you get a ton of downloads. So it's a great business model for artists: they get paid and their fans get music for free. Everyone wins. Oh... except for the old gatekeeper labels.


Everyone should read that part of the article you linked

All it does is keep resetting/reloading the connection. It doesn't take hard or malicious code to do that.

Heck, we thought we were under attack once from denial of service but come to find out, a single mom had fallen asleep with her head on the keyboard and the program kept trying to accept repeated input from the key that was mashed down. So the application was unavailable to anyone else trying to use it. (I won't say which program it was, but it was a pretty important one....) (We had our network segmented w/mac address filtering/access on our pix, and could ID the mac address, so when we went there, that's what we found, single mom, asleep with her head on the keyboard.)

You can say whaterever you want about Anon, but at least Anon try to do something.

what are you doing on your side to help the cause,except talking about a subject you're totaly ignorant about .?


ok we won't mess with your fantasy, it's legit, but why if you are legit, troll innocent people into an attack, any semblence of legitimacy goes out of the window.
I have said it before, if anon want to do something that proves their legitimacy then dump evidence of illegality and malfeasance into the public domain from the people that pull the strings.
That prooves immediately that anon is not another false flag intel op, until then, its fantasy and you cannot blame people for thinking you are part of the problem.

Anon is simply doing what all of you are too lazy to do. 10 thousand innocent people arrested all at the same time, and the justice system will collapse on itself.


Furthermore, it is not a false flag. False fags that turn the people against you are not false flags, but suicides.

Read Machiavelli, who 500 years ago mentioned the right way to do false flags. If you create false flags in such a way as to organize people against you, all you do is create a shorter life span for your own government.


False flags are used to organize people with you. Not against you. This is what Hitler did. It's why his was practically the only false flag to ever occur, because he knew how to do it.



If you don't know what a false flag is, don't speak about it. Because all it does is devalue the word for when it comes. You socially crate a lie- a scapegoat- to blame everything on, and then wonder why nobody cares when it actually happens. Because you lied!

I've said something similar myself. An old phrase comes to mind, "useful idiots". Could anon be that useful idiot? Let's say for the sake of argument, that they're not agent provocateurs and that they're just people like you and I who are tired of being walked all over. So they go out, wreak havoc on various websites (whitehouse being the latest) to show their dismay.

SOPA and PIPA are in the works (now put on hold), the government knows with enough pushing they can get their "useful idiots" to lash back a little too much which then in return, would give the government a reason for tightening up the web.

To me this sounds like something that's already going on. The government wants control over the internet as it's THE tool to spread information and news and a perfect place to sway people's opinions. But they have no real claim to enact stringent regulations online when it comes to freedom of speech and anonymity. So they let groups like Anonymous stir up enough crap and voila, there's your reason.

A false flag is an event that creates an environment in which you can get something that would not be available by any other means than by creating public support for it.
anon by hi-jacking the connections of thousands of people are potentially creating a false flag situation.
The public support for law enforcement to take greater control of the internet will incrementally rise with every exposure people have to personally damaging events.
It may not be an outright false flag, we may be seeing the first false flag by incremental outrage.
It is not 100% guaranteed that anon are a non military controlled civilian automation with altruistic purposes and intentions.
Using civilians unwittingly and unwillingly in an attack is the WORST kind of guerilla warfare.
How do you hope to maintain a war as a subversive agency if you do not have popular support?.
way to go anon, dumb as rocks.

False.

There has been an exponential growth in internet users, and along with it, an exponential growth in identity theft, scams, etc etc. Yet, the primarily users of the internet, that being people under the age of 30, continually express growing desire for more and more freedoms. A few years ago that idea that free exchange of goods should be a right on the internet was a lowly belief. Today free exchange seems to be the nearly common desire among users. It has remained the same % of internet users. But the number of users has increased.

People buy from you when you are nice. People steal from you when you are a jerk.

There are examples of game designers who put millions into a game asking people not to steal because they put so much effort into, and the people bought their game. There are examples of when people put too much piracy protection, and that game was stolen like hot cakes.

The more you push the internet, the more fire you get in return.




Using civilians unwittingly and unwillingly in an attack is the WORST kind of guerilla warfare. How do you hope to maintain a war as a subversive agency if you do not have popular support?. way to go anon, dumb as rocks.



You don't win. You create attrition. Attrition is the main goal of anon. Nothing more. And that is what makes them genius. Congress doesn't have a damn clue about what they are doing, let alone what the internet is or how it works. Anon makes it clear that if you don't know what you're doing, don't get involved.
