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.."
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."
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.
