If all these supposed ''for the people'' hacking groups are so powerful and hell bent on destroying 'the system'....

why haven't they gone in, totally erased and corrupted the banks datacentres?




They've obviously figured out a way to pick the lock or slip through the grills???



aaaaaallllllll that money just vanishes in a night and people woke up to the news that stock markets and banks are offline indefinitely...... it would bring anarchy and destroy the system!

So why haven't they?

Because they can't. It's not like one computer holds all the data for all money. They'd need to hack into thousands of highly secure banking networks from different banks all over the world, and each bank would have different degrees of security.

well, there's thousands of them to do it...and you wouldn't need to take everyone of them down. pick maybe the top 10.

but why couldn't 1000 be done? get 100 hackers (surely there's 100 elite hackers amongst these groups, 10 systems each, get in, document, get out.. then set everything up for a simultaneous hack at a later date!

I think you underestimate the security of banks and overestimate the ability of Anon hackers and other such hackers. The really hardcore hackers, who make a living from hacking into high security networks, are much more skilled than the hobbyist hackers you are talking about, and yet most of them wouldn't be able to hack into a high security bank network. If it were so easy that any old hacker could just bust into bank computers, our money system would collapse very quickly. They've had several decades to develop the security system they have now, every new system breach is analyzed and new fixes are implemented. Any time a hole is found, it is patched up very quickly, that's why it's so hard... you need to come up with new and elaborate ways to breach the system each time, and that's extremely hard once they patch up all the easy holes.

Just an amplification:any security incursions would have to be CENTRAL BANKS (like the Federal Reserve) to be effective - everyday commercial banks simply don't track debt except your personal loans. When it comes to secure networks please remember the equipment resides in the real world, not just the online world - everything is vulnerable to some degree.

ganjoa.

They'd probably need to get access closed systems.

I don't see many hackers having the cojones to get airdropped from a helicopter into a data center. But then again, who knows... you have some ex-military types that could train the others. Naw, I doubt it.



If you want to be a true ATSer you could be schizophrenic bi-polar paranoid and think that the above example was only a 'test' run for a bigger project. Stealing a helicopter seems like quite a bit of trouble, no? It's not like these people are stupid... they could do the math for risk analysis.

But the idea is to get in and NOT collapse the system. You can't siphon off banker's rounding if you break the system.
