Twitter accounts associated with the Anonymous collective have posted messages promising a massive announcement later this week.
The statement was published on Tuesday, stemming from the YourAnonNews Twitter account. While remaining vague about the details, the account posted an ominous tweet promising a large announcement was coming.


The article goes on to say:


Analysts have since taken the message as an indication that the collective is going to post data taken in a recent hack of an as yet unknown, high profile target. In the past the collective has posted data taken from the FBI, Soca and numerous military contractors after issuing such statements.
Many researchers have also offered an alternative theory suggesting the speculated attack will be a part of the collective's ongoing series of anti-Acta "protests".
Most recently, as a part of its ongoing anti-Acta campaign, on 16 February Anonymous hackers targeted two US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) websites. The attack saw the collective deface the sites' frontpages, replacing them with their own anti-Acta message.


Personally I think it might be related to Bill C-30 implemented by Vic Toews

Or maybe it's an even bigger high profile politician or security agency.

Either way - Time will tell.

They'll probably take down some website for a minute or so and then claim victory

Second line

They are going to do a denial of service attack against Disney.com this time?

Maybe I'm missing something but what exactly have they done to better man kind or stop TPTB? The only thing I have seen is them building a case for the goverment to enforce stricter regulations on the I-net.

Whats the worst thing they can do, take down a site for an hour or less and then what?

Seriously, this whole hacker group BS is just getting out of hand, isn't it abit fishy? no one can trace this group, no one! how is this possible.. unless it's a group within the government.

You know, if they were to say "We have got the launch codes for a nuclear weapon and will be firing it to bla bla bla" ok props to you, but shutting a certain website or crashing Sony servers isn't going to get your message out.. sigh.

They need to take out Hollywood.

That would be a good start.

These guys have become so predictable. Pick a fracking cause and stick with it and do something. This hopping around and taking down sites for an hour is pointless.

yes! the fact that they cant subpoena twitter for the information on these accounts is very fishy!

When i first started hearing about anonymous it was exciting but now i'm thinking all they are really good at is making videos

They were going to "shut down the internet" in March, I believe, was something that was buzzing on Twitter/Facebook over the last week.. and this forum as well.

is it just me or does anon have a big announcement every week?

Let's hope this one actually is an announcement...

Maybe they hit puberty or moved out of their parents and realized they were doing stupid things..

Regardless of anyone's opinions towards anon, including mine, I just hope the OP is right and they will release some dirt on that scumbag Toews. He should have a taste of his own medicine.

The rumor I heard was that they were going to be able to get into the internet core switches and take the entire internet down.

Guess we'll see.

That's a good reason to disprove your own theory that the FBI, CIA ect are behind the anon thing. If a government agency realy was behind it, i'm sure they could pull off something more spectacular than a few DDoS attacks to justify changing the laws governing internet freedom.

A new cyberweapon could take down the entire internet – and there's not much that current defences can do to stop it. So say Max Schuchard at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and his colleagues, the masterminds who have created the digital ordnance. But thankfully they have no intention of destroying the net just yet. Instead, they are suggesting improvements to its defences. Schuchard's new attack pits the structure of the internet against itself. Hundreds of connection points in the net fall offline every minute, but we don't notice because the net routes around them. It can do this because the smaller networks that make up the internet, known as autonomous systems, communicate with each other through routers. When a communication path changes, nearby routers inform their neighbours through a system known as the border gateway protocol (BGP). These routers inform other neighbours in turn, eventually spreading knowledge of the new path throughout the internet. A previously discovered method of attack, dubbed ZMW – after its three creators Zhang, Mao and Wang, researchers in the US who came up with their version four years ago – disrupts the connection between two routers by interfering with BGP to make it appear that the link is offline. Schuchard and colleagues worked out how to spread this disruption to the entire internet and simulated its effects.

Well anons' hacking into business and government websites seems counterproductive in securing the internet from government interference. If you were a government agency what would you propose to keep these types of activities from occurring? I call bull#$%# until they produce something of substance.
