Anonymous knocks 20pc of dark web offline in campaign against child pornography

They decided instead to keep the service offline as they found evidence that child pornography sites on the service went over the mandated free hosting limit, meaning that Freedom Hosting II was not only encouraging the sites but actually profiting from them as well.

A hacker linked to the group Anonymous has attacked a Dark Web hosting service after discovering that it was responsible for the management of child porn sites.

“Hello, Freedom Hosting II, you have been hacked”.

The hack may have affected up to a fifth of the dark web – sites accessible only using anonymising service “Tor”.

The hacker said that the action was their “first hack ever”, explaining that they “just had the right idea”.

Anonymous Newspaper Hack, Journalist Convicted Of Aiding

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Journalist jailed for two years for helping Anonymous hack the computer system of his former employer, the LA Times Journalist Matthew Keys has been sentenced to two years in prison, after he was convicted of helping the Anonymous hacking collective gain access to the computer systems of Tribune Media. Tribune Media was the former employer of Keys, and it owns a number of media outlets in the United States including the LA Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun. Disgruntled Employee? It also owned KTXL FOX40, a Sacramento television station, where Keys used to work as a web producer and network site administrator before he was reportedly fired. Key then joined the Reuters news agency as deputy social media editor, before he was charged in March 2013 for conspiring with Anonymous to help break into systems of his previous company. He was accused of handing over his login details for the Tribune Company in 2010 in an online chatroom to an Anonymous hacker, who then accessed the Tribune Content Management System (CMS) and changed the headline of a 2010 LA Times story. The change itself was reportedly relatively trivial, as the hacker simply changed the LA Times article headline […]

Police Warn of Dangers in Anonymous Messaging Apps

Four in ten American teens use the anonymous messaging app Kik. Like with earlier anonymous apps Yik Yak and Snapchat, law enforcement officials and parents are worried about the potential for abuse through the app, especially from sexual predators. Last month, a 13-year-old Virginia student was murdered after she allegedly became acquainted with her killer, a college student, through Kik. In other cases, predators have used the app to coerce, or force, underage teens into sending nude photos.

The Secret to Safety on Anonymous Apps

Despite the recent flurry of increased media attention, anonymous online environments and mobile applications have been around for many years. The social media site Formspring.me arguably introduced the world to the potential consequences of anonymous communications when it launched in 2009. Long before that, though, users routinely created fictitious MySpace profiles or pseudonymous online blogs. Formspring was apparently ahead of its time because it ceased operations in 2013 due to a lack of interest (and funding). Since then, however, being anonymous online has again become fashionable. Newly discovered apps like “After School” and “Brighten” have joined “Read More

Anonymous hacktivists have twisted this well-known Christmas carol to spread their anti-surveillance message

The hacktivist collective know as Anonymous has published a Christmas video message, in which it issues a national surveillance warning to the tune of the well-known carol Santa Clause is Coming to Town . The video shows people dressed as Santa with wires and clipboards, representing members of the US National Security Agency (NSA), spying on people in Guy Fawkes masks – the recognised symbol of the Anonymous collective. The images are overlaid with a jingly tune warning that “The NSA is coming to town”. “You better watch out, you better not Skype, you better log out, you better not type, the NSA is coming to town,” the song goes. “You’re making a list, they’re checking it twice, they’re watching almost every electronic device, the NSA is coming to town. “They see when you are sleeping, they hear when you’re awake, they know who you call and who you write, so encrypt for goodness sake. “With Congress in the dark and a clock-and-dagger court, we’re looking for answers and they’re coming up short, the NSA is coming to town.” The video is intended to remind people of government surveillance programmes like PRISM in the US and Tempora in the UK, […]

Anonymous Is Hacking ISIS, But Warns Collaborating With US Government Is ‘Deeply Stupid’

The hacking collective Anonymous is battling ISIS online, but one of its most important voices has warned members that collaborating with the U.S. war on terror would be “deeply stupid.” The shadowy group issued a statement distancing itself from an offshoot, Ghost Security Group, which has been reportedly supplying the U.S. government with information about the Islamic State group in exchange for payments. The statement, which came from the highly influential @YourAnonNews Twitter account (1.6 million followers), included a thinly veiled criticism of Ghost Security Group: “We think it’s great if people want to hack ISIS and publish their secrets,” the group said. “But engaging in social media censorship campaigns and dealing with intelligence contractors and government agents is deeply stupid. The former will contribute to legitimize the spread of internet censorship and will lead to the increased censorship for everyone, including Anonymous.” Source: http://www.ibtimes.com/anonymous-hacking-isis-warns-collaborating-us-government-deeply-stupid-2226066
