Anonymous Message to India


A message to all Indians, courtesy Anonymous
========================================================

Citizens of India !

Greetings from Anonymous Collective

Since many days we have been observing the deteriorating condition of Free Speech in India. And how the corrupt Indian government is trying to suppress every dissenting voice.

Today, they talked about blocking Social Media for few days.
Tomorrow ...... they will DO it.

Once again the government is at its games trying to gag the social media which is the only remaining venue of free speech.

That battle was won but the war is still far away.
We haven't achieved complete victory.
We have still a long way to go.

We need to show this corrupt government that the citizens of this great nation shall not bow. As one of your poets of the past has said -
"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free"

The cause and foundations of this nation, are today under danger.
And there is only one person who can save it.

YOU..!!
Get out and say it loud and clear in the government's face that, "I will not tolerate your misdoings anymore"

We are not calling for a rebellion.
Neither do we want to out-throw the government.
We just want a "Revolution"

The system will not correct itself, the corrupt will not make laws to prevent corruption or stand up for your need. Take to the streets, create a movement that aims at changing the system and correcting its flaws. Always follow the path of non-violence.

No leader will come to your rescue, no one will work for you, do it yourself. Join hands. United as One we stand.

You know what to do...
You know what to fight for...
You know what is right...
You just need to know "WHO YOU ARE"

After 65 years, this nation needs to unite once again, to be truly free.

Be ready to save "your" nation....

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forget.
We WONT FORGIVE.

Govt. of India, you should have expected us.

Philips hacked, Loads of data leaked by Anonymous

Electronics company Philips was hacked again by Anonymous, with almost 200,000 data leaked on the Internet. The dump was posted under the #Antisec #LulzSecReborn hashtag on one of the hacking groups’ websites. 

This is the third time this year when the electronics giant is breached, and user data is stolen. The leaked files have been uploaded to various file hosting sites and contain a compressed file with raw sql database outputs. Some of the files only contain minor information such as subscriber names and ids but few files have administration and user accounts with encrypted passwords.

All together there is well over 200,000 emails with at least 1000 of them have further vital credentails that could allow others to use the users personal information.

At the time, Philips shut down one of its servers, and said it started to investigate the breach with the Police.

Suspected LulzSec hacker arrested in Sony Pictures breach

A second suspected member of the clandestine hacking group LulzSec was arrested on Tuesday on charges he took part in an extensive computer breach of Sony Pictures Entertainment, the FBI said. Raynaldo Rivera, 20, of Tempe, Arizona, surrendered to U.S. authorities in Phoenix six days after a federal grand jury in Los Angeles returned an indictment charging him with conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer. If convicted, Rivera faces up to 15 years in prison. The indictment, unsealed on Tuesday, accuses Rivera and co-conspirators of stealing information from Sony Corp's Sony Pictures' computer systems in May and June 2011 using an "SQL injection" attack against the studio's website, a technique commonly employed by hackers. The indictment said Rivera then helped to post the confidential information onto LulzSec's website and announced the intrusion via the hacking group's Twitter account. While Rivera was the only person named in the indictment, the FBI said his co-conspirators included Cody Kretsinger, 24, a confessed LulzSec member who pleaded guilty in April to federal charges stemming from his role in the Sony attack.

Global TrapWire/INDECT protest October 20

The TrapWire surveillance system and Europe's INDECT are the subject of a global Anonymous protest planned for Saturday, October 20 2012 Information about the protest is being shared on twitter by OpINDECT International and there is an #OpINDECT/#TrapWire Facebook Event Page.

It is not the first INDECT protest - but recent news about TrapWire from the Wikileaks leak of private intelligence firm Stratfor's documents has added a tanker of gas to the fire.

News and locations of the protest are being shared on various forums and social media sites primarily with a google map showing locations of protesters joining the efforts to raise awareness and intent to stop use of the surveillance technologies.

TrapWire is in implementation in the United States while INDECT is officially still a European research project. While details are unconfirmed, the intent of both TrapWire and INDECT is to combine various intelligent surveillance technologies with tracking and location data, individual profile histories from various sources (datamining and social media), and image data analysis (such as facial recognition; TrapWire's video component) to monitor people under the guise of threat detection. Upon the release of Wikileaks' Stratfor documents (emails), news about TrapWire and sibling surveillance technologies have been met with increasing public surprise, fear and outrage.

A significant number of TrapWire and INDECT's opponents believe the surveillance systems to be direct threats to privacy, certain civil freedoms and that their implementation could constitute human rights violations. TrapWire is used by private entities, the US Government "and its allies overseas."

Last week it was revealed that TrapWire is now linked to Anonymizer, a tool used by activists and at-risk populations - formerly trusted for its security and anonymity protections.

Anonymous defaced Pussy Riot court website.

The website of a Moscow court that sentenced three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot has suffered a hack attack. The site of the Khamovnichesky District Court was defaced with anti-Vladimir Putin slogans and a video uploaded.

In a message on the site, the attackers associated themselves with Anonymous. "We are American group Anonymous. We don't forget and we don't forgive," said the post, in Russian. "Justice system has to be transparent. Pussy [Riot's members] are alive," said another of the posts. Hackers also uploaded a new song by Pussy Riot, called Putin is Lighting the Fires of the Revolution, and a video of a Bulgarian singer, Aziz.

A spokeswoman for the court said the attack had been discovered early on Tuesday and the site was temporarily taken down.

Anonymous attacks British government sites

Anonymous has attacked the websites of the UK Ministry of Justice and the Department for Work and Pensions corporate website, royal.gov.uk, gateway.gov.uk, statistics.gov.uk and number10.gov.uk. The attack is a protest for Britain’s handling of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The assault on the websites is being carried out under a campaign branded #OpFreeAssange.

Earlier this week Ecuador has granted asylum to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange two months after he took refuge in its London embassy while fighting extradition from the UK. Foreign minister Ricardo Patino accused the UK of making an "open threat" to enter its embassy to arrest Mr Assange.


A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Justice website said it "had been experiencing some disruption". "This is a public information website and no sensitive data is held on it. No other Ministry of Justice systems have been affected," she said in a statement. "Measures put in place to keep the website running mean that some visitors may be unable to access the site intermittently. We will continue to monitor the situation and will take measures accordingly," she added.



#Turkey has declared WAR on #Anonymous & #Redhack

Hacking groups Anonymous and Redhack’s recent success in crashing the websites of public institutions is forcing the Turkish gov’t to form a new cyber-combat team
A National Cyber Security Strategy Document recently proposed to Transportation and Communication Minister Binalı Yıldırım As part of the project, government teams will closely monitor cyber attacks from domestic and international sources. A National Cyber Security Strategy Document recently proposed to Transportation and Communication Minister Binalı Yıldırım As part of the project, government teams will closely monitor cyber attacks from domestic and international sources. The Turkish government has announced plans to establish a cyber team to combat recent attacks by activist hacking groups such as Redhack and Anonymous.

The plan, which comes on the heels of numerous protest attacks on state websites, includes the establishment of a National Cyber Security Board and a National Cyber Early Warning and Action Center to combat the two main hacking groups. The proposals were included in a recent report titled “National Cyber Security Strategy Document” that was presented to Transportation and Communication Minister Binali Yıldırım.As part of the project, government teams will closely monitor cyber attacks from both domestic and international sources, the structures of the attacking persons or groups, as well as the plans and timing of the attacks. In response, the teams will systematically form counter plans and solutions.According to the document, undergraduate and graduate programs will be opened in the field of cyber security, while research institutions and test centers focusing on the matter will also be promoted. In addition, special regulations will be passed to foster the employment of cyber security experts in public institutions so that the state can make use of their knowledge and skills.

The document also recommends the acquisition of technological devices used in cyber security from domestic sources, as well as the opening of research and development programs to encourage the production and usage of national technologies in the cyber security field. At the same time, the proposal also calls for the foundation of a regional cyber organization that would enable Turkey to become a regional leader in the field.The information technology infrastructure of private and public sectors, both of which operate critical infrastructure, must be upgraded to the standards of the Information Security Administrative System by the end of 2013, according to the document.

The document also suggested that all institutions with critical infrastructure must be included in National Cyber Security exercises and that an Anti-Cyber Attack Team (SOME) should be founded. The proposal further recommended the formation of Cyber Security Excellence Networks (MÜKNET) within the Defense Industries Undersecretary in the interests of improving national cyber security products. The document further calls for the development of systems to prevent malicious software, viruses, and attacks against firewalls using national resources, as well as national defense profiles. Technologies such as a National Operating System, National Internet Browser and National Search Engine were also proposed in the document. Redhack, a socialist hacking group, has frequently targeted government ministers and the police in response to current events; they have also received support for some operations from the international hacking group Anonymous.

Anonymous hacked site of the prime minister Uganda

Anonymous recently hacked and defaced the Web site of the prime minister of Uganda to protest the country’s treatment of its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens.

The message on the prime minister’s Web site reads in part, “Your violations of the rights of LGBT people have disgusted us. ALL people have the right to live in dignity free from the repression of someone else’s political and religious beliefs. You should be PROUD of your LGBT citizens, because they clearly have more balls than you will ever have. Real Ugandan Pride is demonstrated in standing up to oppression despite fearing the abuse, torture and murder inflicted on LGBT at the hands of the corrupt government.”

“We currently have full control of the President of Uganda’s website,” the hackers added in a statement on Pastebin. “We will not stand by while LGBT Ugandans are victimized, abused and murdered by a ruthless and corrupt government.

#TheEliteSociety and #Anonymous will continue to target Ugandan government sites and communications until the government of Uganda treats all people including LGBT equally and with respect, dignity and immediately ends the arrest and harassment of LGBT.”

Hello Turkey !

This is a message from Anonymous.

In the last few months DIGITURK has blocked sites like pastebin.com or blogger.com and decided with this to restrict the free flow of information.
The internet should be a platform which is far from authority's interference.
This is an attack on free expression and free information.

DIGITURK and Turkeys Information Technologies and Communications Authority, ICA, know from personal experience, how it is when the free flow of information is stopped.
Whoever attempts to silence people by using censorship, commits a human rights violation.
DIGITURK, we will no longer let you terrorize the internet.

Brothers and sisters, it is high time to keep your eyes open.
It is high time to demand for the justice. The Internet should be a platform where ideas are told unhampered.

Ecuador has granted asylum to Julian Assange


Ecuador has granted asylum to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange two months after he took refuge in its London embassy while fighting extradition from the UK. It said there were fears Mr Assange's human rights may be violated. Foreign minister Ricardo Patino accused the UK of making an "open threat" to enter its embassy to arrest Mr Assange. Mr Assange took refuge at the embassy in June to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces questioning over assault and rape claims, which he denies.

Announcing Ecuador's decision, Mr Patino said the country believed Mr Assange's fears of political persecution were "legitimate". He said the country was being loyal to its "tradition" of protecting those who are vulnerable. "We trust that our friendship with the United Kingdom will remain intact," he added.

Outside Ecuador's embassy in London, the BBC's James Robbins said news was slowly spreading through Mr Assange's assembled supporters. Our correspondent said they were delighted, but the UK government is insisting it changes nothing. They will still seek to arrest him and they will not grant him safe passage. If he steps out, he will be arrested.

Anonymous Operation TrapWire – Press Release


Greetings Citizens of the United States of America.

This weekend, it was disclosed by Wikileaks the details about a system known as “TrapWire” that uses facial recognition and other techniques including high-end artificial intelligence to track and monitor individuals using countless different closed-circuit cameras operated by cities and other institutions, including private businesses. This program also monitors all social media on the internet. The software is billed as a method by which to prevent terrorism, but can of course also be used to provide unprecedented surveillance and data-mining capabilities to governments and corporations – including many with a history of using new technologies to violate the rights of citizens. TrapWire is already used in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Texas, DC, London, and other locales around the USA.

The ex-CIA agents who help run the firm are old friends of Stratfor vice president Fred Burton, whom they’ve briefed on their own capabilities in e-mails obtained by Anonymous hackers and provided to WikiLeaks. Stratfor has engaged in several surveillance operations against activists, such as those advocating for victims of the Bhopal disaster – on behalf of large U.S. corporatons; Burton himelf was revealed to have advocated “bankrupting” and “ruining the life” of activists like Julian Assange in e-mails to other friends. TrapWire is extremely expensive to maintain, and is usually done so at taxpayer expense; Los Angeles county alone has spent over $1.4 million dollars on the software’s use in a single three-month period of 2007.

Although most of the regions in which TrapWire operates don’t share information with each other, all of this is set to change; as Abraxas Applications president Dan Botsch told Burton via e-mail, “I think over time the different networks will begin to unite,” noting that several networks had already begun discussions on merging their information. Abraxas itself has always had the ability to “cross-network matches” from every region at their own office. By June 2011, Washington D.C. police were engaged in a pilot project under the Departent of Homeland Security that’s likely to lead to more cities using TrapWire on a more integrated basis.

Abraxas, the firm whose spin-off Abraxas Applications developed TrapWire in 2007, has long been involved in a lesser-known practice known as persona management, which involves the use of fake online “people” to gather intelligence and/or disseminate disinformation. The firm Ntrepid, created by Abraxas owner Cubic Corporation, won a 2010 CENTCOM contract to provide such capabilities for use in foreign countries; several board members of Ntrepid also sit on Abraxas.

The more we learn about TrapWire and similar systems, it becomes absolutely clear that we must at all costs shut this system down and render it useless. A giant AI electronic brain able to monitor us through a combination of access to all the CCTV cameras as well as all the online social media feeds is monstrous and Orwellian in it’s implications and possibilities. The Peoples Liberation Front and Anonymous will now put forth a call to arms, and initiate the doom of this evil and misbegotten program. We will use the following tactics to accomplish this goal:

1) The PLF and Anonymous will work closely with WikiLeaks and Project PM to gather, collate, disclose and disseminate as much information as possible about TrapWire and it’s related technologies and programs. This was begun this weekend, and already much has been learned. And they are scared of this, already many sites and repositories of data on TrapWire are disappearing – being taken down by those who do not want you to know the truth about what they are doing. And WikiLeaks is at this writing enduring a massive and historic DdoS attack in an attempt to conceal this information from the public. We will do this not only to educate the general public regarding TrapWire, but to move them to pressure their representatives to shut down funding for this and similar programs of massive surveillance, and to pass laws outlawing the creation of future projects of this type.

2) ACTION ALERT – “Smash A Cam Saturday”: TrapWire has access to virtually all CCTV’s that have IP/internet connectivity. We have prepared an initial map/database of these cameras across the USA, and we will continue to expand this knowledge base. http://bit.ly/PcByYJ While this database is a good guide to high priority camera targets, we encourage everyone to target any camera with IP/internet connectivity. We are asking everyone to sabotage at least one CCTV per week on what we are calling “Smash A Cam Saturday”. We have provided this excellent manual of different tactics and strategies for disabling or destroying these “eyes of the beast”. http://bit.ly/1Qjp

3) As stated above, this “monster” doesn’t just have eyes that need gouging out – it also has “ears”. TrapWire constantly monitors social media. In a strange twist of fate, the company that developed TrapWire also works on something called “sock-puppet” programs. These are projects designed to create thousands of fake personas on social media. We will turn this idea and software against them, creating thousands of phony accounts and use them to produce a deluge of false triggers for the TrapWire program – essentially drowning it in “white noise”.

4) Finally, the Peoples Liberation Front and Anonymous will do what we do best. We will find, hack – and destroy the servers where the AI “electronic brain” of this program is housed. Operation TrapWire is a direct action of the over-arching Anonymous Operation USA. TrapWire is but one instance of how the government of the USA has turned against it’s own citizens, designating them as suspects and enemies. Now those citizens rise, and take back their country and their freedom. Welcome to the Second American Revolution.

We Are Anonymous
We Are Legion
We Never Forgive
We Never Forget
Government of the USA, it’s to late to EXPECT US.

Anonymous shut down Australian spy agency

Anonymous have shut down a computer server belonging to Australia's domestic spy agency ASIO, reportedly briefly closing down access to its public webpage. The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) acknowledged some disruption to its website.

"ASIO is aware that there may have been some technical issues with its public website," a spokesperson said.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that ASIO's website was down for at least 30 minutes Friday morning, but it appeared to be loading normally Friday afternoon. Operation Australia, which has its own @Op_Australia Twitter stream said it would "stop the attacks at 10pm Aus. BUT we will never stop watching!".

The personal and departmental websites of Attorney-General Nicola Roxon, the ruling Labor party's South Australia branch and Tasmania police sites were also targeted in the plot. It appeared linked to a controversial government plan to store the web history of all Australians for up to two years which was shelved Thursday until after the 2013 elections.

Operation Outrage: Beastiality engaged

Anonymous launched a new operation titled #OpOutrageBeastiality. This is an operation concerning on animal rights and abuse.

Greetings World,

We recently have come to realize that bestiality is a rising problem in the world right now. It is controversial and by god, a rising act. We call to action against this animal abuse.

In many countries and states, it remains totally legal and accepted. There are many sites on the Internet that openly show bestiality porn and many boards that are dedicated to bestiality. The most used one: beastforum.com We will be targeting these kinds of sites and especially people.

Join us in this battle against bestiality. We will post the major attacks and d0xs. This is not a moral issue, the forcing of animals to have sexual intercourse with a human is unjust to the animal and against its will.

Thanks for supporting and taking action. This will not stand. Operation Outrage: Beastiality. Engaged. Expect Us.
