Anonymous hacks DOJ threatens 'there will be chaos'

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-0...ation-warns-th

Quote :
"Operation Last Resort", which was revealed to the public when Anonymous took control of the website for the the US Sentencing Commission for nearly one full day from Friday afternoon until Saturday evening, using it as a venue from which to distribute a massive 1.3 GB encrypted file titled Warhead-US-DOJ-LEA-2013.AES256 which may contain secret information sourced from the Department of Justice (hence the files contained are named after SCOTUS justices) and which Anonymous threatens to release unless massive reforms take place at the DOJ - reforms which will certainly never see the light of day, meaning Anonymous will have no choice but to make the contents of said file public.
Don't what information these guys have. Apparently they threatened to be doing something really big a few years back but nothing came of it. Still you never know might be some info about the Fed, financial sector etc. in there that could end up affecting PM's

Quote :
The contents are various and we won’t ruin the speculation by revealing them. Suffice it to say, everyone has secrets, and some things are not meant to be public. At a regular interval commencing today, we will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents of the file.

Why redact the information? Are they covering their asses??

I want to see something sick and juicy, like video of Lloyd Blankfein doing Nancy Pelosi to get some political favor or another.

Until Anonymous actually puts something out there, I have my doubts. I'll believe this when I see it.

Ha ha, ancona! Newly bearded Blankfein doing Pelosi... Well, ha ha until tonight when a nightmare may strike!

Some people say that anonymous is (partially) a front group of the FBI

I'm with DCRB, it's just a bunch of hot air so far. Let's wait and see whether they deliver something or not.

I'm with SA on this one. If they were really just a loosely organized group, egos would ultiumately dictate what was released and when. That means that we would see non-redacted stuff sooner than later. There is no reason to redact information other than to protect someone. No reason.

Ok yeah I guess it could be a front.

They used real 9/11 to start wars, increase defense spending, take away citizens rights. So using the language 'cyber 9/11' just before this event happened is suspicious and worrying like they are just creating a catalyst to give them an excuse to unleash all the cyber big brother and censorship stuff they've been building up and passing laws for

As ZD reports, last night Anonymous once again hacked a .gov site, this time the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center (ACJIC). But it was not the site hacked that was material, but rather what was posted on it. What was posted is an extended data dump sheet, titled "oops we did it again" which lists some 4,606 rows of confidential credential data including titles, names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, logins, password hashes, and much more
Quote :
What is curious, however, is if Anonymous really did penetrate one of the Fed's critical money clearing networks, and if indeed it has access to key financial data at the granular, regional bank level. A bigger question then is just how much more Fed-level access does Anonymous have, and will it resort to it as its demands are unmet by the DOJ in the coming days. Or in other words, what else can and will Anonymous release?
Though the more I read about them the more sceptical I am, this at least may be something.

...that really doesn't make any sense at all, from my "seasoned computer guy" point of view. Why release edited docs. That strips them from any credibility whatsoever - whomever is smeared in these, might just simply claim - "these has been edited - it is not true at all, it wasn't me, it never was there, the content was manipulated, wahwahwah". Case closed.

...even if the content was NOT manipulated, I am highly suspicious as for the content of anything that is in digital form. It is just so easy to manufacture it, if you know how, that it gives no substance to any claims, based on it.

...unless there's some serious cryptographic shit done to SOURCE files, that would guarantee data integrity. Which I will not get into details of, but most certainly, most gov agencies are NOT using this kind of electronic records.

The Federal Reserve said on Tuesday that one of its internal websites had been briefly breached by hackers, though no critical functions of the U.S. central bank were affected by the intrusion.

The admission, which raises questions about cyber security at the Fed, follows a claim that hackers linked to the activist group Anonymous had struck the Fed on Sunday, accessing personal information of more than 4,000 U.S. bank executives, which it published on the Web.
...
Technology news site ZDNet separately reported that Anonymous appeared to have published information allegedly containing the login information, credentials, internet protocol addresses and contact information of more than 4,000 U.S. bankers on Sunday night.
...
The Fed declined to identify which website had been hacked. But information that it provided to bankers indicated that the site, which was not public, was a contact database for banks to use during a natural disaster.

A copy of the message sent by the Fed to members of its Emergency Communication System (ECS), which was obtained by Reuters, warned that mailing address, business phone, mobile phone, business email, and fax numbers had been published.

...OK, since hacking the Fed, is potentially, an obvious threat to the National Security, can "they" go after Anonymus members now, full-on, using anti-terrorist regulations/executive orders/powers/provisions? "CanIcanIcanI, Mr. President?" - said eager anti-"terrorist" tool.

Jeez, I wouldn't rather be in Anonymous' place! I hope (for their own sake), that they really do understand what they are trying to play with.

Let's think on this a little. Suppose anon is what they claim, and what we know. Mostly a bunch of 20's types, mostly script kiddies, some few really good crackers.
(assumption for the sake of argument here)

They know exactly diddly about intelligence business, but are finding out.
One of the first precepts is never tell the enemy about your sources and methods. It makes them quit working. Worse, in the case of anon, they could be declared "terrorists" and they do know that. Mom's basement ain't going to be safe if that happens. Though it's rarely done (expensive and takes time) they're not anonymous, they can be traced back through any number of proxies....it's just not seen to be worth doing it yet, as it's costly per each and there are a lot of anon.

Yet in their youth, they have to brag a little - try to recruit more talent etc. They have to walk a very fine line here - if the gov perceives them as a real threat, they lock things down (to the extent incompetent gov IT guys can manage) and bingo, there go all the easy pickings.

And they want a hole card, just like Assange. A big file out there no one can easily decrypt (you can bet NSA is burning the midnight oil just now on that one) that *might* really be the real thing. If it is, and NSA finds out it is - and it looks damning enough, expect the landscape to change all of a sudden - give it few weeks for NSA to try and break it, takes time if they did it right.

Why redact stuff? They could actually be telling the truth on why - if they have the real goods, some more or less sinecure mostly innocent people are going to get hurt too - as they said, collateral damage to people "just doing their job" which is always good to avoid. It's also good to protect your sources, and redaction can be used that way too...for example if you redact enough, the data you do show could have come from several different overlapping data stores - and you thereby deny your adversary the knowledge of which one the stuff came from.

Just sayin. No real good guess as to the actual truth here, but I got out the popcorn.

redacting personal information makes sense to me. IE.. no reason to give addresses and phone numbers, birth dates etc.

I also don't think the "concern" of getting caught is something these guys take lightly. I don't think they are likely using a hard line connection at their home to do this. Most likely, they are plugging into a network router in an office building over the weekend that they have access to or latch onto a wifi signal at a coffee place. If someone was serious enough, it really doesn't take much effort to make your actions on the net untraceable. You just have to have a real reason to want to do that.
