Meanwhile, as this report is being written, both MI5 and MI6 have come under attack from Anonymous (not NullCrew). MI6 and MI5 are both unavailable at the time of writing. Anonymous told Infosecurity that the attacks are in the name of OpFreeAsssange, the protest against the treatment of Julian Assange by the UK, Sweden and allegedly the US.
Both the MI5 and MI6 websites were down for around an hour this morning, as Anonymous UK claimed hits on the two intelligence organisations in protest at the treatment of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Sis.gov.uk and MI5.gov.uk were being hit throughout the morning, and were inaccessible for periods between 9am and 11.30am. Anonymous claimed it took the sites offline with distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks as part of #OpFreeAssange, protesting the UK government’s decision to prevent Wikileaks founder Julian Assange from enjoying asylum in Ecuador.

No wonder people are calling for control on the internet when there are clowns like these kids on the lose.
This isn't helping anyone. Waste of their time and waste of our tax money when it comes to prosecuting and jailing them.
Police and intelligence officers are to be handed the power to monitor people's messages online in what has been described as an "attack on the privacy" of vast numbers of Britons.
Regional police forces, MI5 and GCHQ, the Government's eavesdropping centre, would be given the right to know who speaks to whom "on demand" and in "real time".

If I were the head of a agency such as MI5 or 6, or even the FBI or the CIA, I would intentionally leave a weak point in the IT realm of things. And watch over it like a hawk.
What comes in that backdoor means that something can go back out. Such as a virus or worm.
I've always thought that was how STUXNET was delivered.
And while using proxies to try to hide...ALL signals are traceable.
I think it could be a trap.
