Anonymous Gets Revenge for LulzSec Arrests

You didn’t think Anonymous would stand idly by after the arrests of several members of the hacker collective’s extended network, did you? Well, it didn’t. On Friday, news broke that AntiSec, an Anonymous spinoff group, had struck at two companies in retaliation for the LulzSec bust that happened earlier in the week.

PC Mag’s “Security Watch”:

Days after hacking into Panda Security, on Friday, Anonymous offshoot AntiSec defaced the website of a New York City police equipment supplier and published additional outdated Symantec source code.

The two attacks on Friday (#FFF) were in protest of the arrests of five LulzSec members earlier this week, based in the U.K., New York, Chicago, and Ireland. Fox News revealed that former LulzSec ringleader Sabu, a 28-year-old single father living in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City, had served as an FBI informant for several months.

greasy spoon some, but also a hospital cook and a bit of cooking for a pretty
classy gourmet caterer…..


feeling like hot stuff because you can follow the recipes from a cook book ain’t all
that, toots…...understanding the science and creating your own dishes is a bit
more to hang your toque on.

The only lunch meat I am interested in comes from a different part of the body, and is usually called a ribeye steak. Being of simple tastesI prefer it cooked in a light mix of olive oil and balsamic vinegar with lots of freshly ground black pepper and a hint of Worcestershire sauce.  In fact, one of those is waiting for me right now.

None of your pathetic beaten meat interests me, so don’t try peddling any of that along with your pimping for patriotism.  I am not buying.

The difference?  Well for one thing we haven’t been bombing the Vatican for ten years and letting God sort out all those red robes and burning the expensive art works buried in the basement.
  Between hacking, fracking, tracking, sacking, highi-jacking and counter-reacting, church and state are both suffering from the antideluvian jim-jams. History is passing them by and they don’t know what is happening. If you go to Siberia and dig, you might find a piece of a fossilized dinosaur skull. Tempus fugit, and she ain’t kidding!

If it were not for these guys, we would not have seen what we posted here confirmed about all the gringo and other NATO soldiers running the thousands of al qaeda and other CIA employees against the Syrian government for more than a year now.  They started the capers in 2006….

Hint for you pimps for patriotism who believe that your bread is butter by guns:  you may well just be right.

But why not just fess up that genocide against whites is the only game that gringos and europeans know how to play?

Invasion?

If my 12 year old hacks NORAD from his bedroom oh well, I should be happy he isn’t hacking porn sites.

The government needs to get better security for their websites if their sites are open to the public domain.

Don’t hold hackers guilty for being curious and futhermore, investigative.  Since state and federal investigative agencies have become all too selective in what they do and what they do not investigate, we need someone else to watch our back.

Seemingly an absurdity…

As to the importance of Wikileaks, well, all but the staunchest neocons, like our resident who so fears for his masculinity he must broadcast it in his name, understand. In an era when secrecy is at its most ridiculous an organization that cuts through that darkness and points out the absurdity of our governments acts for us all.

Yet another in a long list of Obama bullshite is the fact that, after campaigning on open government, this administration is even more secretive than was his predecessors.

Long live Wikileaks!

Nihilists of The World Unite: Wikileaks Is The “Cognitive Infiltration” Operation
Demanded by Cass Sunstein

http://tarpley.net/2011/01/20/wikileaks-cognitive-infiltration-operation/

Webster G. Tarpley
TARPLEY.net
January 20, 2011


Awareness is growing around the world that the Wikileaks-Julian Assange theater of the absurd is radically inauthentic – a psyop.

Wikileaks and its impaired boss represent a classic form of limited hangout or self-exposure, a kind of lurid striptease in which the front organization releases doctored and pre-selected materials provided by the intelligence agency with the intent of harming, not the CIA, nor the UK, nor the Israelis, but rather such classic CIA enemies’ list figures as Putin, Berlusconi, Karzai, Qaddafi, Rodriguez de Kirchner, etc. In Tunisia, derogatory material about ex-President Ben Ali leaked by Wikileaks has already brought a windfall for Langley in the form of the rare ouster of an entrenched Arab government.

The “reason” (now that you ask) that may serve as grounds for legal punishment for “aiding the enemy” etc. could be life—which would be completely unconscionable if FBI/NSA are (secretly) “supporting these groups in order to gin up cyber-security hysteria"etc, no?

Except for:

Trying to suppress knowledge and curiosity by our brightest youth only proves to me how we have let our Government get out of control. 

The Government will spend billions shoveling sand against the tide.

hetero and blogdog:  Then all the more reason for the WikiLeaks to be defended, right?  Because actually the FBI/NSA is using WikiLeaks to hack itself?  It really wants the people to know about the “collateral damage” bit?  And Manning and Assange are victims of a fraud?  Is that what you are saying may be happening?

This has gotten way beyond me, but my instincts tell me to be thankful for their ability to intercept government/corporate secrets because somebody has to do it to preserve the human race. I just pray they develop superior ethical integrity along with superior tech skills. A tall order, but never more crucial.
