Anonymous: “a line was crossed” with Aaron Swartz, retaliation coming

Anonymous is going nuclear after the death of Aaron Swartz, which was provoked by the prosecutorial abuse of Carmen Ortiz and other government officials who wanted to make an example of him.

Decentralized groups and security. Anonymous hacked

Hackers, quite possibly from the government, replaced Anonymous DDOS software available for download with a version that steals passwords.

HBGary. Down the rabbit hole. And don’t mess with Anonymous

Their CEO boasted they could take down Anonymous and instead the company got their head handed to them on a platter. Forbes Last week, the hacker group […]

Anonymous: Spread the Wikileaks cables far and wide

This change in tactics shows increasing sophistication and could actually hit much harder than symbolic shutting down of websites. LOIC is “Low Orbit Ion Cannon,” which is open source software used in DDOS attacks. Boing Boing This new mission, apparently, is to actually read the cables Wikileaks has published and find the most interesting bits […]
