Hackers Hacked the Hackers' AnonPlus Social Network


gizmodo.com

Kat Hannaford — My brain hurts trying to keep all the different factions of hackers in line. After being booted off Google+, Anonymous started building their own site, AnonPlus—which has now been hacked by a group calling themselves "TURKIYE."

While it could be some elaborate joke played out on us ordinary non-hackin' folk, to grab more headlines and attention to their mission, AnonPlus' website apparently did show the following message late yesterday:

"We Are TURKIYE. We Are AKINCILAR.

This logo suits you more..How dare you rise against to the World..Do you really think that you are Ottoman Empire?
We thought you before that you cannot challenge with the world and we teach you cannot be social
Now all of you go to your doghouse.."


Well there you have it folks , the hackers got hacked. It seems that AnonPlus website reverted back to its messageboard pretty quickly after this happened yesterday. Acording to the article Akincilar is a Turkish town, it is also a term in [the] Ottoman army which means something like "raiders".


the users seem angry, with someone passing themselves off (legitimately or otherwise) as the creator of AnonPlus writing that:

"It seems the hacker group AKINCILAR decided we were offering too much freedom for the average person and needed us stopped. This is the most ignorant thing i have ever seen. I knew having anon anywhere in our social networks name might cause confusion but this recent defacement just shows how OUT OF CONTROL the anon sheep actually are."


Now one hacker group has done it im betting many more are going to want to do the same just for bragging rights .I guess what goes around comes around..

If it is a ploy for attention than it is par the course.

If it is a hacker infighting...interesting. If Anon is real than they just received a reason to pursue epic lulz...

One in four US hackers 'is an FBI informer' (guardian.co.uk)

Hackers got hacked: One in four online criminals in the U.S. 'is an FBI informer' (dailymail.co.uk)

One in Four Hackers Works for the U.S. Government (time.com)

One in Four Hackers is an FBI Mole (rollingstone.com)

A hidden world, growing beyond control (washingtonpost.com)


The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.

- Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in about 10,000 locations across the United States.


1,271 separate government agencies, with another 1,931 private companies work in the intelligence field. Combine that with the cybercrime agencies, and you have a vast army of intelligence specialists and computer "hackers" working for the United States. While "one in four" hackers might be informants and snitches, you also have federal agents and/or infosec personnel posing as hackers. For all we know, half the "hack attacks" are conducted by these types as a means of "goosing" some piece of legislation or ensuring their agency keeps itself well employed. And fear always sells in Washington.

Nice angle, job security.
That happens wherever there is a government job.
So each hack is also a sort of fundraiser by government employees along with getting the legislation passed to create even more jobs in the security sector.
If people are getting hired you move up the food chain faster.

So all you anons, one in 4 of you, according to many reputable sources, are a government employee hacker, hahaha.
The 1 is at the top telling the other three the agenda, makes sense all the more now.

can you imagine the size of the budget for that set up?? it has to be at least several billion dollars a year...probably a lot higher...add on the budget for area 51....that will probably bring the black projects budget up to about 60 billion....then there's the billions they send to other countries..which they have no business doing....no wonder our government is f****d
