In response to the Paris attacks, Anonymous says it is at war with ISIS.
We as a collective will bring an end to your reign of terror. We will no longer turn a blind eye to your cruel and inhumane acts of terrorism towards all other religions that are not Islam. We’ve watched you behead innocent people, kidnap and murder children, and then launch terrorist attacks in France. This will NOT BE TOLERATED ANY LONGER. We here at BinarySec live for the sole purpose of bringing down All ISIS Propaganda ONE website and/or person at a time. ISIS… Your Jihad is coming to an abrupt end . We here at BinarySec will be one of the driving forces to your end and that’s a promise. ISIS… The War Is On.
Police departments across Canada are hit by cyber attacks as Anonymous takes revenge on the police for shooting an activist, in a case of mistaken identity. Its goal is to uncover the name of the police officer who killed the Dawson Creek activist
If Canadian police was as brave as Canadian nurses, they could deal with people with knives without hiding behind bullets. Anonymous will not stand idly by while our own are cut down. We will most certainly avenge one of our own when they are cut down in the streets, protesting the earth-wrecking environmental policies of the Canadian government, the group said.
Anonymous releases a video threatening Israel with an “electronic holocaust” for their alleged crimes against Palestinians.
We’ll erase you from cyberspace as we have every year, 7 April 2015, will be an electronic holocaust. As promised in previous attacks, we will continue to electronically attack until the people of Palestine are free. As shown in previous attacks, we will continue to invade and attack your devices, websites and personal data…To the government of Israel, you have not stopped your endless human right violations. You have not stopped illegal settlements. You killed thousand people as in the last war against Gaza in 2014 . You have shown that you do not respect international law.
Anonymous uses denial of service attacks to take down FortLauderdale.gov and the city police website, as well as city email, for around two hours, to protest a city ordinance designed to reduce the homeless population that led to the arrest of two priests and a 90-year-old war veteran who were providing food for the homeless. Video from Anonymous demanding the ordinances be overturned:
You have 24 hours or less depending on whether this reaches you, Mayor [Jack] Seiler
[The homeless will be] trying to distance themselves from [the video] now because it’s certainly not anything about trying to do good works in the community and good deeds.
Anonymous posts credit card data and other personal information it says belongs to the leader of the KKK, following its hack of the organization after the KKK threatened to use lethal force on Wilson protestors. Using a Twitter account that was previously associated with the KKK but was hacked, Anonymous announces that it is posting the data belonging to Frank Ancona, the Imperial Wizard of the Missouri-based Traditionalist American Knights:
We’ll just leave this here
Anonymous hacks into KKK websites and social media accounts.
The attack is retaliation for KKK threats to use lethal force against protesters in Ferguson, Mo. Anonymous won’t tolerate racism in any form, or the suppression of the right to protest. We are not attacking you because of what you believe in, as we fight for freedom of speech. We are attacking you because of your threats to use lethal attacks against us at the Ferguson protests.
Hacktivist group Anonymous takes control of the U.S. Sentencing Commission website in a new campaign called “Operation Last Resort.” The first attack on the website was early Friday (25) morning. The second – successful – attack came around 9pm PST that evening. By 3am PST ussc.gov was down.
Anonymous cited the recent suicide of internet activist Aaron Swartz as a “line that has been crossed.”
We have been watching, and waiting.
Two weeks ago today, a line was crossed. Two weeks ago today, Aaron Swartz was killed. Killed because he faced an impossible choice. Killed because he was forced into playing a game he could not win — a twisted and distorted perversion of justice — a game where the only winning move was not to play.
The full defacement message is here.
Anonymous also distributed encrypted government files and left a statement on the website that de-encryption keys would be publicly released if the U.S. government did not comply with Anonymous’ ultimatum demands for legal reform.
Warhead – U S – D O J – L E A – 2013 . A E E 256 is primed and armed. It has been quietly distributed to numerous mirrors over the last few days and is available for download from this website now. We encourage all Anonymous to syndicate this file as widely as possible.
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.
Hackers from Anonymous on Sunday claimed credit for posting messages to MIT web sites commemorating the life of RSS co-founder Aaron Swartz and calling for an overhaul of computer crime laws. The group called for an overhaul of intellectual property and computer crime laws and that Swartz’s death should be a rallying point for Internet freedom advocates.
We call for this tragedy to be a basis for a renewed and unwavering commitment to a free and unfettered Internet, spared from censorship with equality of access and franchise for all.
In an update to the messages, which have since been taken down, the group said it does not blame MIT for Swartz’s death and apologized for using its sites as a stage for its messages.
Keys identifies himself on an Internet chat forum as a former Tribune Company employee and provides members of Anonymous with a login and password to the Tribune Company server. He encourages the Anonymous members to disrupt several Tribune companies and urged that the Los Angeles Times should be “demolished.” Keys:
Go fuck some shit up.
Hackers uses the credentials provided by Keys to log in to the Tribune Company server and make changes to the web version of a Los Angeles Times news feature, changing a headline to read: “Pressure builds in House to elect CHIPPY 1337.”
Hacker: [T]hat was such a buzz having my edit on the LA Times
Keys also changes the access credentials of FOX40 employees, interfering with their ability to access company servers, and obtained email addresses for FOX40 viewers, to whom he sends disparaging emails about the company. According the the company Keys’ actions caused the mobile version of the Times to be offline for a day, and resulted in thousands of dollars in costs for the Tribune Company in responding to the breach of its systems by shutting backdoor access credentials and assessing the full extent of the damage.
