Is Lord Sugar a Member of Anonymous?

May 18, 2012 Added by:Javvad Malik

I’m simply asking the question that if Lord Sugar read something he didn’t agree with, and instead of privately sharing his thoughts or being in any way constructive, why did he expose the email address of Kevin OSullivan and invited 2 million people to DDoS his inbox?

Not Totally Sure What Just Happened...

May 16, 2012 Added by:ʞɔopuooq ʇuıɐs

As I watched, the conspiracies mounted – one of my favorites is that Smedley is in fact me and I am cashing out or something, so I decided to up the ante. I (probably stupidly in hindsight) unpublished my blog posts and deactivated my twitter to lend credibility to Smedley's claims...

Has Anonymous Infiltrated the US Government?

May 16, 2012 Added by:Pierluigi Paganini

"Right now we have access to every classified database in the U.S. government. It’s a matter of when we leak the contents of those databases, not if. You know how we got access? We didn’t hack them. The access was given to us by the people who run the systems…"

The Pirate Bay Labels DDoS Attacks as Censorship

May 09, 2012 Added by:Headlines

Critics of DDoS attacks conducted by movements like Anonymous have long held that it is hypocritical to profess the defense of free speech by engaging in a tactic that undermines one's right to freely communicate, whether the interest is sociopolitical or an effort to engage in commerce...

Anonymous Reloaded: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

May 04, 2012 Added by:Pierluigi Paganini

Anonymous must be analyzed with a multidisciplinary approach, it is an amorphous creature that quickly changes and is able to adapt its behavior to the context needed for successful attacks, thanks to the large and heterogeneous participation in its collective...

China vs. Philippines: Cyberwar or Hacktivism?

May 03, 2012 Added by:Pierluigi Paganini

While attention is focused on Iran and its quarrel with the West, other silent battles are being fought. In the last month, there has been a surprising level of activity between China and the Philippines, with reciprocal attacks via bits and bytes. Are we witnessing a cyber conflict?

Building a Better Anonymous: Separating the Philosophical from the Practical

April 18, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Boiling it down to a simplistic statement, “Anonymous” - which means “unknown” - cannot at any time ever be considered a movement/group/collective that will never be used as a scapegoat for bad actors. Nor will it ever mean that bad actors will never get into the fold...

Patriot Hackers: Stand YOUR Ground - Not Mine

April 16, 2012 Added by:Ali-Reza Anghaie

Let’s not replicate the sins of our Governments. Let’s not aggravate the problems Governments face. I don't disregard the threats radicalization online brings. I'm suggesting Cyber Vigilantism is not a movement we want to support by throwing our Western weight behind it...

April 06, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

The military and the government movers and shakers are all moving with fear tinged with desire, for more control over the internet as a whole while the beltway bandits are all in the wings, like a murder of crows watching dark eyed, waiting for their moment to strike...

The First Cyber Shot in a Chinese Jasmine Spring

April 01, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

This does not look like a US military action against China, that is certain. Whoever put the message together seems to be dumbing it down to aid in translation. It’s as if it’s intended for an American audience, but nobody in their right mind would or should do that...

Can DNS Attacks Threaten the Internet on a Large Scale?

March 27, 2012 Added by:Alan Woodward

This attack is theoretically possible because the DNS is a hierarchy. At the top level are 13 servers. Disrupt them and you could disrupt the entire DNS network. Authorities know this and they put a lot of effort into ensuring that the DNS network can cope with a DOS attack...

Who Fights for the Users? Part II: FBI's AntiSec

March 15, 2012 Added by:Ali-Reza Anghaie

News is rampant with speculation that the FBI created AntiSec as a sting operation. I'm going to a further extreme to explore this - yes, conspiratorial. Cans of conspiracy worms get opened and they can't ever be closed. Something Government should strive to avoid...
