PayPal, Symantec hacked as Anonymous begins November 5 hacking spree

Summary: As it becomes the 5th of November around the world, Anonymous announced a hacking spree that has claimed many websites and a few databases - plus a planned V For Vendetta reenactment at the Houses of Parliament.

The press arm for Anonymous has announced that it has begun its hacking spree for the 5th of November - Guy Fawkes Day.

Claims are circulating that hackers - some affilaited with Anonymous, and some not - have dumped user and employee account information on accounts from PayPal, Symantec, the defacement of Saturday Night Live's website, Australian government websites and much more.



What led me to this story was really this thread.

Quite the scare...and hoax...


And a new headache to watch...so close to an election....

NBC sites OK again after hacking

Several NBC websites were hacked Sunday by a person or group calling itself "pyknic"and suggesting a possible link to the cyber-attack group Anonymous.

It appeared that the defacement of the affected sub-sites was cleaned up in a couple hours. NBC and its various websites appeared to be functioning normally as of Sunday evening. However, older versions maintained by search engines such as Google or Bing still bore the message "hacked by pyknic."

The message said: "Remember, remember the fifth of November." That reference suggested a link to Anonymous, a movement of cyber rebels.

So tell me Loam, what about this thread made the mods lower the boom? It was civil. The thing about Nibiru was a hoax yes, but... thats usually enough to dump it in the hacks---err, I mean hoax bin.

So what gives?

It was re-opened. The MODS just needed time to sort it out.

I don't understand how Anonymous can say its not them. Isn't Anonymous anybody and everybody? I thought it wasn't organized or exclusive.

No. That thread said an asteroid the size of TX had a 30% chance for collision with earth... It apparently was placed on the front page of several news sites...BBC & Al Jazeera, for example.

theres the possibility that anon is not involved in any of this, and these might be "inside" hacks blamed on anon or other possible "terrorist" groups, to help further the goal of internet security in order for tptb to once again control all information outlets.

I got that. Good job whomever did that. I was wondering about the Nov.5th part. I think I'll log out and carefully look at the wreckage tomorrow.

hmm, so far its not a great deal.
some websites are offline and they have posted a massive dump of usernames passwords to citylotto and a couple of other generics, but i couldnt see any use for them.

dang...

Good grief.


I checked out some of the names...and some are definitely government employees. I'm also seeing C-suite names of what looks like government contracting companies....media companies...

Do you think you should be posting that link?


It kind of makes the problem worse. And there are some big names there.

A lot of people are going to be real upset about this in the morning.

and its only just begun..

antisec have thrown up the kernel to vmware, that cant be good!


I wonder if they chose this date because the elections are decided in 48hrs. Perfect way to screw everything up!


ill be watching this through the night and posting updates.

Loam, your probably right maybe it isnt wise to post the link. But it is openly free on the internet on Anon's twitter feed....?

Yeah, but better the link isn't associated with this site.



If they can hack in such a widespread AND targeted manner...what could they do to an electronic election?????
