Anonymous hackers: Police arrest 25 in four countries
www.bbc.co.uk...


Police in Latin America and Europe have arrested 25 suspected members of the Anonymous hacking group, according to Interpol.

The authorities in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Spain carried out the arrests and seized 250 items of IT equipment and mobile phones, Interpol says.

Those arrested are aged between 17 and 40.

Not such a good day for Anonymous. Perhaps tomorrow will be a better day...

Two were already released, and it doesn't say anything about official charges being filed or what they were arrested for.

Sounds like the new form of drug seizure property laws for cops to steal and sell whatever they want to.

You have too many computers/routers/servers/phones in your house?

Online Terrorist!

Quick! We must "liberate" their electronics!

we will all suffer since we are too scared to change.

Like the future our kids face will somehow be better. Everyone here will eventually have someone arrested down the line for something. Your kids, their kids, etc. Global dictatorship. That's what we are too scared to stop.

I say, what's the difference?

you or your kids. But yes, fear is warranted. So is the response.

fight tyranny.

We can only hope some of those caught are real anonymous members and are prosecuted for their crimes.

After them threatening (and laughably so, they could never pull such a thing off) to wipe Greek citizens personal debt, Im not firmly against anything these spoiled children do.

Here is an update on the story...

It looks like they're attempting to strike back even though the damage was minimal.

Anonymous Hits Interpol Site After 25 Arrested

Supporters of the loose-knit hacker collective Anonymous temporarily forced the main website for Interpol offline this evening, after the international police group announced it had arrested 25 suspected supporters.

The site www.interpol.int was unreachable for 20-30 minutes and appears to be loading again, albeit slowly.

They still haven't picked up James T. Kirk:

Wanted: Captain Kirk, For Domestic Terrorism And Sedition
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Not only does he champion the constitution, but he also has oodles of computers with which to perpetrate his dastardly deeds...


Wanted: Captain Kirk, For Domestic Terrorism And Sedition



"These words... must apply to everyone, or they mean nothing."

In the same breath you tout freedom for everyone, while you continue to create and impliment policies of invasion, occupation, secret detention and torture under the auspices of spreading the good news of "life, liberty, and justice for all".

While here at home you try with all your might to justify the actions against your own people as being for our safety and security.

You say to the Constitutionalists: "You are domestic terrorists".



You incrementally strip away the Bill Of Rights, that which gives us our safety and security - the rights you claim your global agenda is in place to promote.

"We The People". "These words were not meant for chiefs, but for everyone."

Justice... Common Welfare... Liberty... Freedom.

These things have to be more than just words.
And they have to apply to everyone.
Or they mean nothing.

Expose corruption and tyranny? Get arrested. Expose global fraud and fight for accountability? Get arrested.

these spoiled kids are the only ones with balls enough to try and change a system we are to placated and scared of to defy.

We are the German people we criticize for their crimes against humanity. Why didn't they resist? well, why don't we?
Global dictatorship is our future. And we like being on the winning side.

Too bad the ones doing this aren't as loyal as we are. They will eventually crack down on us after they get the world.

Our kids and their kids will have a bleak future because we are cowards.

Just heard on the radio (sorry, got no links), the arrest of 4 members in Spain was for revealing personal data about GEOs, Spanish police special forces. We knew there was going to be retaliation for the Stratfor emails. Best of luck for the arrested.

The site www.interpol.int was unreachable for 20-30 minutes and appears to be loading again, albeit slowly.

This could have been the result of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack by supporters of Anonymous. For this, either a hacker uses a botnet, or hundreds of volunteers use a special web tool flood a site with enough junk traffic to take it offline. (In such a short space of time a botnet looks more likely.)

I'm wondering if some people didn't simply turn in people they didn't like who were skilled in computers.
You know, turn in a cyberterrorist, get $100 sort of thing.

Let's not forget how some of the people ended up in Gitmo.

its more than most do. some are so scared for their own personal safety that they ignore the world and their own people. They are cowards too scared to change a thing or try. They will walk willingly into their graves as long as it doesn't hurt.

DDoS attacks are pointless. So what, you shut down a public website for 20 minutes? What's the big deal? What does that serve to do besides force the government to crack down harder on the internet, and give more reasons to censor us?

Anonymous is a joke, sorry.

So let me guess - now Anonymous will have to do something really powerful and there we got a new personal internet id ,to stop this awfull menace from making such a things in the future of course.
Listen, Anon - they have technology to stop you. They do not do it because you play right in their hands. Stop with criminal actions or they wil use it to cage internet for all. Don't you understand it? Young rebels, egos, we against the world, do not forgive do not forget,legion et ctr - those are nice and cool. Consequences are going to be ugly and not cool for internet users worldwide.

reaxi0n: "Guess they're not so anonymous after all."

Man, you people will swallow anything...

Just like every Middle-Eastern person being searched at the airport is a "random security screening".

These people are being charged for releasing information, not doing the hacking.

And it looks like they used a bunch of minors to release the info because they know the minors will be released by authorities.

Nah you are right...

The people smart enough to hack into a security firm are dumb enough to get caught releasing e-mails...

I forgot that profound logic...

Actually the internet ID is already in place, you do have an internet ID, infact, everyone has multiple internet ID's that produce your digital profile. The only way to avoid an Internet ID is simply not to own an internet connection.


This is why they go crazy over botnet's, no point of origin but always a point of destination. You would be suprised at how many networks and computers are zombie's on this planet. If on the other hand a global digital party was formed it would have over 1billion digital citizens and given that number, it can literally knock entire nations off line without any e-drama.
