YourAnonNews' Twitter — currently the largest Anonymous account with 371,000 followers — recently posted this: "Just out of curiosity, what would YOU like to see #Anonymous hack next? Tweet and let us know."
Taking a shorter break than their last vacation, Anonymous is back at it already. Reports are coming in that they had completely knocked out CBS.com for a good period of time. This wasn't your regular DDoS attack because if you went to CBS.com at the time Anon attacked it, there was nothing except an index page with a single file. Basically, Anonymous gained access to CBS.com and deleted EVERYTHING.
The recent hacking of a couple of Finnish anti-piracy sites has stepped up a level, or several levels in fact, with one of the anti-piracy groups revealing it received a bomb threat after assisting in blocking popular BitTorrent site The Pirate Bay.
Anonymous is at it again and this time they’ve been irked by the Finns. It launched a DDoS campaign against two Finnish anti-piracy sites, after a court order forced Elisa, a Finnish ISP, to block The Pirate Bay. The Finns seem to be following a similar course to us Brits, with the recent Newzbin2 blockades here in the UK, and Anonymous isn’t happy about it.
Anonymous is still waging war on German neo-Nazis and has taken to a WikiLeaks-esque data release tactic to renew its assault. It's launched the familiarly named Nazi-Leaks.net, which it's using to release customer data and contact details from a series of far-right newspapers; alleged donors to Germany's National Democratic Party, and neo-Nazi online stores.
Looks like Anonymous got ticked off with the pepper-spraying cop, who blasted some seated protesters outside UC Davis. The collective also released another video listing his personal contact information, which has been taken down.
Chalk another one up to the Anonymous collective and their battle against discrimination, among other things. Anonymous Finland hacked a neo-Nazi site and leaked its membership database embarrassing a Finnish parliamentary aide.
According to Anonymous Iberoamerica, OpCartel has been canned following the release of the supposed kidnapped Anonymous member by the Zeta drug cartel. A statement on the 'Official Blog' called an end to the action.
Here's the trailer for We Are Legion, a documentary featuring members and supporters of the Anonymous hacker collective and various commentators whose names and titles aren't provided yet, so we don't know who they are. But they seem knowledgeable enough!
Looks like Operation Cartel has split the Anonymous collective with some backing down over real fears of reprisals from the Zeta drug cartel, who recently hung two bloggers and decapitated a social-media reporter as a warning to 'online snitches'.
The hacking group that trades under the name of Anonymous has adopted a very-British mask to represent their struggle against capitalism and the establishment in general. But David Lloyd, the man who created the V For Vendetta graphic novel with Alan Moore, is happy with its newfound usage.
