Cyberwar Comes to a Mall in Fresno? Not so Much...

January 24, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

A Pastebin dump alleged to be from Anonymous has forty-nine IP addresses with SCADA systems on them. Furthermore, those systems were claimed to not have any authentication on them whatsoever. I checked the IP’s and I have to say “meh” on this little dump by the skiddies...

The Shifting Digital Sands of Online Jihad

January 21, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Take That Israel! All Your SCADA's Are Belong to Us!

January 20, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

DEFCON Panel: Anonymous and LulzSec Are Everywhere

August 08, 2011 Added by:Headlines

“We have an opportunity to not just cause chaos, but to cause organized chaos. I’m suggesting the actions in pursuit of their own goal compromise their goal. There’s a way to render more specific what they want to accomplish," said panelist Josh Corman, research director at the 451 Group...

Infosec Island's Scot Terban Replaces Aaron Barr at DEFCON

August 05, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"I look forward to talking about the hubris of LulzSec, Aaron Barr, and Anonymous as well as discuss the issues surrounding them. Cyber activism (hacktivism) is in its infancy and will likely turn into the next level of terrorism," Terban told Infosec Island...
