01/20/2012, Most people could have seen this coming – with the Megaupload file-sharing site taken down yesterday, there was bound to have some form of retaliation happen; and boy did it not take long. In fact, hackers have already targeted several US government and copyright ortanization websites, where the Department of Justice (DoJ), FBI and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) were bombarded with internet traffic. Not only that, in […]
01/17/2012, Sony executives must be feeling the heat after hacker group Anonymous declared that they might just have a look at Sony’s servers to see if everything is up to par, probing for any defences that are ancient while looking out for weak links that they can exploit, no thanks to Sony’s declaration of support of SOPA. SC Magazine reports that Sony.com and the Sony Music store are the intended targets […]
10/06/2011, Remember earlier this year when we would have news about hackers taking down websites every other day? Well, the whole hacking scene seems to have hushed down quite a bit since then, until a few days ago, when two mysterious videos were posted online by someone who claimed to be a messenger of Anonymous. The videos, directed to the people and to the media talk about a proposed attack on […]
09/22/2011, Brace yourselves for a new slew of cyber attacks from hacktivist group Anonymous as they have just announced in a press release that the collective and “other cyber liberation groups” will “peacefully yet forcefully” protest all over the United States of America. Touting September 24 to be a nationwide “Day Of Vengence” (no idea on whether they will be wearing Guy Fawkes masks while behind a computer screen), this particular […]
08/10/2011, Ever needed a reason to make the jump to Google+ permanent and exclusive? Well it seems that the hacker group Anonymous has just declared war on Facebook, claiming that they will “destroy” Facebook come November the 5th, which just so happens to the be Guy Fawkes Day.
08/09/2011, A couple of days ago, hacking collective Anonymous went ahead and defaced the Syrian Ministry of Defence’s website, leaving a message that supported the residents in Syria who were pro-democracy. I guess the arrest of LulzSec’s alleged leader, Topiary, did not faze Anonymous as they went about business as usual.
08/07/2011, After releasing the details of over 7,000 law enforcement officers last week, it looks like Anonymous is back again, this time with the help of Lulzsec. In their latest Antisec move: the two hacking groups have hacked over 70 law enforcement agencies and stolen 10GB worth of data from their endeavors. As usual, they’ve put the data up for download online. The leak contains hundreds of compromising email spools, personal […]
08/01/2011, Anonymous has announced that it has managed to hack over 70 US law enforcement websites and steal 10GB of data. It promised a leak and the first one was released yesterday – over 7,000 law enforcement officials’ private information including their social security numbers, email accounts, passwords, phone numbers and home addresses. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on where one stands) the link is down at this time so we’ve been […]
07/30/2011, Remember last year when PayPal was attacked by Anonymous after it froze Wikileaks’ account? Well, it looks like PayPal has finally decided to strike back against the hacking coalition. Apparently the hackers left behind enough information to be traceable. PayPal has reported that it has given a list of over 1,000 IP addresses to the FBI: IP addresses that were linked to the PayPal attack last year.
07/27/2011, As if the heat from the authorities wasn’t already enough, it looks like Anonymous and LulzSec have another adversary to deal with. A hacker who calls himself Jester has claimed responsibility for taking down the websites of two of the most prolific hacker groups in recent history. At this time of writing, both lulzsecurity.com and anonyops.com are inaccessible, though there’s no word on why the sites are offline besides the […]
07/21/2011, Remember a couple of days ago we reported that Anonymous decided to start their own social network, AnonPlus, after they were rather unceremoniously given the boot from Google+? Well as it turns out, just because they’re hackers and know how to exploit security flaws in systems does not mean that they’re impervious themselves. It seems that only just recently did they find their AnonPlus website hacked and defaced.
07/19/2011, We had initially thought that the hacker group LulzSec had decided to hang up their hats and call it a day, as they had publically announced they would do so via their Twitter account. Well it looks like they might be back for just one last hack and this time their target was none other than Rupert Murdoch’s “The Sun” news publication.
07/18/2011, What do you do when you get banned or kicked out from Google+? You create your own social networking website of course! At least that’s what the hacker group, Anonymous, has decided to do when they were booted from Google+ for violating some of the rules for Google’s new social networking website. The group had apparently violated community standards which resulted not only in Google removing the group’s Google+ account, […]
07/11/2011, While LulzSec has disappeared and sailed off into the sea, other hacking groups have picked up where they left off, wreaking havoc on the world. Another infamous hacking collective known as Anonymous, recently made an attack on the intelligence community of the world and has posted some of the stolen material it gained from its endeavors. Just in case you didn’t know, the intelligence community consists of government agencies like […]
