Anonymous Goes on Megaupload Revenge Spree: DoJ, RIAA, MPAA, and Universal Music All Offline
Image

Anonymous has sure been quiet lately, but today's federal bust of Megaupload riled 'em up good: a retaliatory strike against DoJ.gov (and plenty of other foes) leaving them completely dead.

DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com is reporting the department's site as universally nuked, and an Anonymous-affiliated Twitter account is boasting success. This is almost certainly the result of a quickly-assembled DDoS attack—and easily the widest in scope and ferocity we've seen in some time. If you had any doubts Anonymous is still a hacker wrecking ball, doubt no more.

The combination of the hacking nebula's SOPA animosity—they've been a vocal opponent of the bill since its inception—combined with today's sudden Megaupload news has made the group bubble over: hundreds upon hundreds of Anon operatives are in a plotting frenzy, chatting about which site will go down next. In Anon's eyes, the government and media interests are responsible for the undue destruction of Megaupload (and the arrest of four of its operators), so it'll be exactly those entities that're feeling the pain right now. Pretty much every company that makes movies, TV, or music, along with the entirety of the federal government, is in Anonymous' crosshairs.

Update: Anonymous says they've also knocked off the RIAA's site—looks down for us at the moment as well.

Update 2: Universal Music Group has also fallen off an e-cliff.

Update 3: Goodbye for now, MPAA.org.

Update 4: Affected sites are bouncing in and out of life, and are at the very least super slow to load. Anon agents are currently trying to coordinate their DDoS attacks in the same direction via IRC.

Update 5: The US Copyright Office joins the list.

Update 6: This Anon sums up the mood in their "official" chat room at the moment:

Danzu: STOP EVERYTHING, who are we DoSing right now?

Update 7: Russian news service RT claims this is the largest coordinated attack in Anonymous' history—over 5,600 DDoS zealots blasting at once.

Update 8: the Anonymous DDoS planning committee is chittering so quickly, it's making my laptop fan spin.

Update 9: Major record label EMI is down for the count.

Update 10: La résistance est international—French copyright authority HADOPI bites the dust under Anon pressure.

Update 11: Anonymous has released a statement about today's attacks.

Anonymous posts audio of FBI, Scotland Yard call
By Chris Lefkow | AFP – 20 hours ago

Hacker group Anonymous, in an embarrassment for law enforcement, released a recording Friday of a conference call between the FBI and Scotland Yard discussing operations against the hacking collective.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed the authenticity of the nearly 17-minute recording posted on YouTube and other sites and said it was "intended for law enforcement officers only and was illegally obtained.

"A criminal investigation is under way to identify and hold accountable those responsible," the FBI said in a statement.

The release of the audio recording was one in a series of attacks on Friday by the shadowy loose-knit group of international hackers.

Members of Anonymous also attacked the website of the Greek justice ministry in a protest against the country's tough fiscal reforms and a site operated by the Boston Police Department.

In addition, members of the hacker group defaced the website of the law firm that defended a US Marine who faced charges in connection with the 2005 killing of 24 Iraqi civilians.

Anonymous, in a statement on the website of the law firm of Puckett and Faraj, also claimed to have published online three gigabytes of private email messages of attorneys Neal Puckett and Haytham Faraj.

Puckett served as a lawyer for Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich, who faced a court martial last month in connection with the killings in the Iraqi town of Haditha.

Wuterich, 31, admitted one count of negligent dereliction of duty but manslaughter charges were dropped as part of a plea deal with prosecutors and he is not serving any jail time.

Along with the FBI-Scotland Yard audio recording, Anonymous posted online the January 13 email invitation from an FBI agent setting up the call for January 17.

The email invites members of European law enforcement agencies to take part in a conference call "to discuss the on-going investigations related to Anonymous, Lulzsec, Antisec, and other associated splinter groups."

The email was sent to law enforcement officials in Britain, France, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden but the only people who identify themselves on the call are from the FBI and Scotland Yard.

The email includes the number to be called along with the access code.

In a message on Twitter, Anonymous posted links to the audio recording and said the FBI "might be curious how we're able to continuously read their internal comms for some time now."

According to the FBI, no agency computer systems were breached in connection with the incident.

Graham Cluley of computer security firm Sophos said the hackers were apparently able to access the call "because they have compromised a police investigator's email account."

"No doubt the police authorities will be appalled to realize that the very people that they are trying to apprehend, could have been tuning in to their internal conversations," Cluley said in a blog post.

During the call, the British and American participants discuss some of the targets of their operations including Jake Davis and Ryan Cleary, two British teenagers who were arrested last year over hacking.

Other names mentioned during the call are bleeped out.

Davis is charged with hacking into websites, including that of Britain's Serious Organised Crime Agency, which was out of service for several hours on June 20 after apparently being targeted.

Cleary was detained in connection with a month-long global rampage last year by the Anonymous splinter group Lulz Security.

At one point in the call, a British participant thanks his American counterpart for helping out with an examination of Cleary's hard drive.

Later, a British participant mentions a hacker from West Midlands who goes by the handle "tehwongz."

"He's a 15-year-old who's basically just doing this all for attention and a bit of an idiot," he said, going on to describe him as "a pain in the bum."

Last month, Anonymous briefly knocked the FBI and Justice Department websites offline in retaliation for the US shutdown of file-sharing site Megaupload.

In late 2010, Anonymous attacked the websites of Amazon, Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and others in retaliation for their decisions to stop working with Julian Assange's anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks.

Anonymous attacks American Nazis

Two major sites associated with hate speech were temporarily out of commission

By Matt Liebowitz
updated 2/1/2012 12:00:52 PM ET

In its latest effort to silence and expose those responsible for spreading anti-Semitic and racist hate speech around the Web, hackers associated with Anonymous have taken down and defaced the American Nazi Party website.

Uniting under the ongoing "Operation Blitzkrieg" banner, a group calling itself "SolSec" took down Americannaziparty.com Saturday (Jan. 28) and continued attacks through the weekend, according to the AnonymousCenter Twitter feed.

The Examiner reported that Anonymous also took down the white supremacist site Whitehonor.com Monday (Jan. 30). Both sites later were back up.

The incidents come on the heels of Anonymous' early January "OpBlitzkrieg" attacks on several German neo-Nazi and extremist groups, including Germany's far-right National Democratic Party. On a site called Nazi-Leaks, Anonymous posted the names and addresses of NPD donors as well as email addresses, email messages and names taken from several American white-supremacist online groups, one of which was the American Nazi Party.

Anonymous' key players took to Twitter yesterday (Jan. 31) to support Operation Blitzkrieg. Sabu, a known hacker and Anonymous organizer, posted personally identifying information said to belong to Jamie Falla Kelso, the webmaster and board member of the racist group American Third Position (A3P). The information included an address for an apartment in North Dakota, a phone number, a Social Security number and a credit-card number with a three-digit card security code.

AnonymousIRC, another Twitter sounding board for the hackers, posted a link to another neo-Nazi group's blog, which was hacked in December to expose the name, Social Security number, cellphone number, address and credit-card information of American Nazi Party member John Taylor Bowles.

Hacked neo-Nazi websites reveal Canadian connections

Data exposes people associated with Blood and Honour and Volksfront
CBC News Posted: Feb 1, 2012 6:57 PM MT Last Updated: Feb 1, 2012 10:28 PM MT

The names of dozens of alleged white supremacists in Canada are contained in files leaked by computer hackers in Europe intent on exposing hate movements, CBC News has learned.

The alleged white supremacists' names were revealed earlier this month by members of a loose-knit group of hackers called Anonymous on a website called nazi-leaks.net, which is now offline.

In addition to emails and secret websites and blogs, the hackers uncovered photographs of children giving Nazi salutes at a gathering in Missouri, confidential legal documents and displays of Hitler tattoos.

The exposure is a huge blow to hate groups that organize online across Canada, said Helmut-Harry Loewen, a University of Winnipeg sociology professor and a member of the Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society.

"We can now begin to piece together a more accurate picture in terms of the distribution of these types of racist groups across Canada," Loewen said.

Among the information hacked were the names of 74 Canadians — with associated street addresses, email addresses and passwords — who are members of Volksfront and Blood and Honour, along with 142 emails from people who had joined Blood and Honour's Canadian online forum.

Alleged members charged

Attention has been drawn to Blood and Honour since the arrests in December of three alleged members of the organization who have been charged with attacks on five members of visible minorities in B.C.'s Lower Mainland.

The names of two of the accused, Alistair Miller and Robertson De Chazal, show up in the files uncovered by the European hackers. Miller, 20, and de Chazal, 25, are charged with an attack in which a sleeping Filipino man was apparently sprayed with a flammable liquid and set on fire.

Anti-racist groups hope the exposure hampers online recruitment by white supremacist organizations.

"[These organizations] are going to have to be even more careful in terms of who they trust, who they associate with," said Loewen. "They're going to have to look over their shoulders. The police will have access to this info once it becomes more widespread. Employers, neighbours and so on."

Supremacist angered

Another name uncovered by the hackers was that of Bill Noble, who in 2008 was convicted in B.C. of wilfully promoting hatred.

Noble is upset thousands of emails concerning his white supremacist views, legal woes, infidelity, and even some details of his online dating were exposed.

"If it can be determined that any of these individuals carried out these acts, because they were fully aware that they were interfering with the survival of an endangered race, then they should indeed be exterminated," Noble said in an interview with CBC News via Skype from a location he would not reveal.

"Obviously someone is really trying to harass me and cause problems for me," said Noble. "It's annoying as hell and it's probably compromised a lot of private information."

This is why I'm torn about disclosure for campaign donations and the like. Well, this and the response to prop 8. There really are enough people with nothing better to do than send hate mail to those that support causes they do not. Hopefully there aren't too many that have an interest in doing more than that.

Usually, those people are too caught up in posting very important missives on internet message boards.

Exactly what do you think they will accomplish other than drive more funding to defense contractors peddling "Cyber-security"?

anything that raises awareness and hopefully, uproar against Harper's dangerously biaised policies is good to me. the usual cyber-attacks (DDoS) from the Anonymous group aren't rocket science compared to the really dangerous cyber-terrorists. i don't think that people should stop standing against this governement's agenda only because they fear a bigger backlash. we're not in North Korea yet.
