So...I found this and thought I would share with you. Anonymous is claiming an internet blackout March 31, 2012. Hoax or not, I find this interesting and look forward to the discussion. Forgive me if this has already been posted by someone else.

21. "The greatest enemy of freedom is a happy slave."
22.
23.To protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved
24.bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of
25.sheer sadistic fun, On March 31, the Internet will go Black.
26.
27.In order to shut the Internet down, one thing is to be done. Down the
28.13 root DNS servers of the Internet. Those servers are as follow:
29.
30.A 198.41.0.4
31.B 192.228.79.201
32.C 192.33.4.12
33.D 128.8.10.90
34.E 192.203.230.10
35.F 192.5.5.241
36.G 192.112.36.4
37.H 128.63.2.53
38.I 192.36.148.17
39.J 192.58.128.30
40.K 193.0.14.129
41.L 199.7.83.42
42.M 202.12.27.33
43.
44.By cutting these off the Internet, nobody will be able to perform a
45.domain name lookup, thus, disabling the HTTP Internet, which is,
46.after all, the most widely used function of the Web. Anybody entering
47."http://www.google.com" or ANY other url, will get an error page,
48.thus, they will think the Internet is down, which is, close enough.
49.Remember, this is a protest, we are not trying to 'kill' the Internet,
50.we are only temporarily shutting it down where it hurts the most.
51.
52.While some ISPs uses DNS caching, most are configured to use a low
53.expire time for the cache, thus not being a valid failover solution
54.in the case the root servers are down. It is mostly used for speed,
55.not redundancy.
56.
57.I have compiled a Reflective DNS Amplification DDoS tool to be used for
58.this attack. It is based on AntiSec's DHN, contains a few bugfix, a
59.different dns list/target support and is a bit stripped down for speed.
60.
61.The principle is simple; a flaw that uses forged UDP packets is to be
62.used to trigger a rush of DNS queries all redirected and reflected to
63.those 13 IPs. The flaw is as follow; since the UDP protocol allows it,
64.we can change the source IP of the sender to our target, thus spoofing
65.the source of the DNS query.
66.
67.The DNS server will then respond to that query by sending the answer to
68.the spoofed IP. Since the answer is always bigger than the query, the
69.DNS answers will then flood the target ip. It is called an amplified
70.because we can use small packets to generate large traffic. It is called
71.reflective because we will not send the queries to the root name servers,
72.instead, we will use a list of known vulnerable DNS servers which will
73.attack the root servers for us.
74.
75.DDoS request ---> [Vulnerable DNS Server ] Normal answer Normal Client request
76. \
77. | ( Spoofed UDP requests
78. | will redirect the answers
79. | to the root name server )
80. |
81. [ 13 root servers ] * BAM
82.
83.Since the attack will be using static IP addresses, it will not rely
84.on name server resolution, thus enabling us to keep the attack up even
85.while the Internet is down. The very fact that nobody will be able to
86.make new requests to use the Internet will slow down those who will try
87.to stop the attack.
88.
89. "He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither."
90. Benjamin Franklin
91.
92.We know you wont' listen. We know you won't change. We know it's because
93.you don't want to. We know it's because you like it how it is. You bullied
94.us into your delusion. We have seen you brutalize harmless old womans who were
95.protesting for peace. We do not forget because we know you will only use that
96.to start again. We know your true face. We know you will never stop. Neither
97.are we. We know.
98.
99.We are Anonymous.
100.We are Legion.
101.We do not Forgive.
102.We do not Forget.
103.You know who you are, Expect us.

I don't think it is real because why would they say how they were going to do it?? This would allow procedures to be put in place to prevent them from doing those things...

Also your link is dead.

perhaps im being to hastey to call foul, but a newly registered acct, advertizing a website, with the smallest of posts is clearly just trying to perhaps peddle his goods?

If it smells like a turd....(but ill wait for a link to say for sure)...its a turd

The URL is not dead, it's ATS broken URL parser causing that. Hit quote on the OP to see the unmangled pastebin link.


ETA As for the new member thing, so what? At least he made an intro post, unlike you.

this will not happen unless an CME knocks out everything... it is nearly impossible to deny the ENTIRE internet being that the internet is hosted on 100000000's of computers/servers. The only plausible thing I can see them doing is attacking ISP's directly. and good luck with that

No you can't. Too many ISP's to shut down the net. Not happening in the USA.

Btw, I think the ATS staff makes it so we cannot link Pastebin.com. Prolly because of all the Anon traffic and liability and what not.

Take it from me, if they knock out DNS servers, your ISP won't be doing much at all once all the cached DNS entries expire.

And how many DNS servers are there to be knocked out? Exactly.

13 Root servers, which google could also have told you.

No worries friend, I was just being a tad sarcastic. If you want to see the worst intro thread ever (I'm also a shy boy) go look up mine via my profile.

The Elite have invested a good deal in creating this ANONYMOUS Icon Entity to blame for Internet crimes and they are not going to dissapear until tptb get their internet takedown, I think. It would be odd if ANONYMOUS does not find a way to find itself in the news once again in March since bringing the Police State to the Internet is one of the key things that would have to be on the list to get the New World Order up and ready. Whatever happens, this month, there will be another socially engineered excuse to invade your privacy and take over your very personal internet life for the sake of " world peace"

seems like it would be possibly the worst possible time to shut down the internet with the ultimatum on the 31st

i could go a day without the internet but preferably on a day with nothing particular potentially going on

not the first time anon has threatened to blackout the internet either tho i believe

13 Root servers, which google could also have told you.
edit on 14/3/12 by LightSpeedDriver because: Correction


Google could have told me that? This is what I found when asking google how many DNS servers there are.

There are not 13 root servers


blog.icann.org...


There are not 13 root servers. What there are is there are many hundreds of root servers at over 130 physical locations in many different countries. There are twelve organizations responsible for the overall coordination of the management of these servers.


Sure its the first thing I saw when I did oh sooooo simple google search, but the question is, didn't you see this as well or did you just ignore it because it goes against your claims?

DNS root servers in the world


stupid.domain.name...


I still meet people that think the following is true:
There are 13 root servers in the world
The A-root is the main DNS server
Almost all root servers are located in the USA

All of those statements, and similar, are just completely wrong. You can find more information about the organisations that run the root servers here, and find a map I have done at Google here.
Updated: Got information about a server existing on Fiji, and found on the homepage of Autonomica [I] that servers also existed in Kathmandu and Luleå. If you know more servers missing, just let me know (for example via a comment to this blog).

Take out the roots and the rest will surely follow.

This guy forgets that it is IPs that are used. No DNS would make it harder, and useless for many people and sites, but it will not disable the HTTP protocol. DNS is used to get the IP address that is used in the transmission.
