Update 4/16/2012, 8:21Pm GMT+8:
More US and UK government websites have fallen prey to DDoS attacks by the hacktivist group Anonymous. The victims now include the US Department of Justice, CIA and two MI6 sites.
The group claimed responsibility on their Facebook page, saying: “its [sic] all of us together. We are the “little people”, the hungry, the poor, the “manipulated”, and yet for all their power and might, these “little people” brought their pride down.”
Earlier, Brazilian hacker group Anonymous member Havittaja claimed responsibility for DDoS attacks on the US Department of Justice and CIA websites.
On his Twitter microblog he posted that the CIA site was offline for an hour and a half. He said it was done for the “lulz”, referring to the popular online abbreviation “for laughs.”
The rest of the group joined in to finish what their “Brazilian brother started”, AntiS3curityOPS wrote on their Facebook wall.
As of 4/16/2012 GMT+8, 12:56PM: CIA.gov is subjected to DDOS attack.
The information came from the official OWS Twitter account. The site indeed appears to be down, however, there has been no information whether it is due to a hacker attack. The report cannot be verified at this time.
Previously, US Central Intelligence Agency site has been taken down by Anonymous hacktivist group in February. The attack was directed against US law enforcement agencies and copyright holders.
DETAILS TO FOLLOW
To some, DDOSing or distributed denial-of-service, is not an effective tool for knocking down an agency of the government or the government itself. But, that is not the point. The purpose of this exercise is to demonstrate what can be done collectively. This is an exploration of the possibilities when two or more people decide to do something. Anything.
As opposed to outright hacking, DDOSing enjoys some form of legitimacy due to its inherent collective nature, i.e. it can only be successful when enough servers are requesting for the same web address of its intended target. Their favorite tool in this case is LOIC, or Low Orbit Ion Cannon.
When the critical mass is achieved, the next stop would be a physical action. That’s when the final objective is achieved.
One of the significant sources of funds for the Cabal is the healthcare industry which registered a whopping $2.7 trillion in 2011, and are projected to soar to $3.6 trillion in 2016, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.
You can join the fight against the Dark Cabal and accelerate its demise just by boycotting Big Pharma. You can effectively do this by downloading “Towards Healthcare Emancipation“, a fully illustrated do-it-yourself instructional eBook that will help you in implementing all eClinik methods that would negate the use of expensive medicine, avoid radioactive diagnostics and treatments in completely defeating cancer, AIDS and all other parasitic diseases. These methods, when faithfully followed, work 100% all the time. Find out more about this here.
