Anonymous is still suspect to me but I can only see this as a good thing.
I hope they smash facebook. Just end it once and for all.
Its one hell of a goal and no easy task Im sure, but I'll be crossing my fingers hoping for the best.

RE: Message from Anonymous: Operation Facebook, Nov 5 2011
I will admit, I use Facebook a fair amount, especially for the simple fact that in seconds, due to the very same lack privacy settings, I can do a major search and know exactly what is going on with things such as these recent riots. By mixing a HUGE cross-section of FB users in a search (of the people who have their "wall" totally public), and then I mix that with a few mainstream and then alternative stories to get a clearer picture of ongoing situations. [Example]

But that aside as it's all only a recent way to use FB for me, as I decided to start using it for research only about 6 months ago, maybe a little longer. The initial reason I signed up was to keep in touch more easily with family and friends in the US, as well as friends from my own country that I cannot see that often due to the cost of travel (I refuse to move from this rural area I live in, it's to calm and too beautiful to sacrifice for city life).

But I also see the sense in this sort of action, and so cannot really oppose it. The only reasons I would have to oppose it are totally 100% selfish, to such reasons can be left at the door. And I'd argue facebook does, overall, more harm than good, especially with "communication".

At least there has been time given, and ample warning, though, to be honest, I cannot find any major direct connection to the main Anonymous hub for this info, and the video is not HQ, which seems a little odd. Many have been questioning the ample warning, not realising it gives people time to collect together contact details from one another such as email and snail mail addys.

It COULD possibly even be a good way for Facebook to get everyone sending all their personal data over FB, such as things they have not disclosed before...alternative email addys, snail mail, phone numbers etc. But that only just occurred to me as I was typing...hmmmm.

Quote:Facebook and the way it makes easy disclosing private information has been targeted by many privacy-concerned critics, from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the hacktivist group Anonymous.

The latter even recently said in an online video statement that it plans to “kill Facebook” on November 5. This was later retracted through a group-associated Twitter account, which said Anonymous is split in its attitude to the social network and that the community as a whole is not hostile to Facebook.

RE: Message from Anonymous: Operation Facebook, Nov 5 2011
* ALERT ALERT ALERT *

You have been chosen to experience a genuine thokling rant! Count yourself as blessed.

I'm going to avoid putting down any particular individuals in case they're members here at ConCen. I'll just describe them and let the pieces fall into place. Those of Anonymous who are acting in the best interests of others, and not solely themselves, are not part of this diatribe.



It's been a few months since I last involved myself on the Anonymous IRC channel. The only individuals I had any real hope for were Barrett Brown (the public face of Anonymous) and a user going by the nick "OpNoPro", who was disseminating all sorts of links about Metal Gear.

Anonymous consists of only a handful of types of people:

- sheep who exhibit no sign of independent thought
- paranoid control freaks
- self-important extortionists
- those wishing to actually make positive changes

Most of the members fall into the first category. They have no clue as to what's going on in their local city, let alone geopolitically. They're epitomised by the type of person who has one of two options after they get home from flipping burgers or pumping gas: watch the evening news followed by a brain-numbing sitcom, or DDoS sites because they're told to.

The paranoid control freaks don't actually employ any sort of logical analysis of any situation. They're the people who've had life crap on them, and in an act of utter self victimisation choose to lash out at targets that have no connection to the situations that "made them paranoid" in the first place.

The self important extortionists refer to the other three groups as "moraltards". They're the guys who helped me discover how to find resources that would allow me to nab credit card and login information. Whether it's writing software or digging through the Internets, I now know how to steal or extort like the best of them. (Not that I would. I just wanted to know how.)

The last group are those who rally protests and actions in countries that have oppressed citizens. They're the ones who provide the technical infrastructure to give other humans the opportunity to make their country right again. Best of all, unlike that self-serving oppressive asshole Ernesto Guevara, they don't go into other people's countries to assert their will and alleged authority over the native populace. (But that's a whole other rant.)



Now that that introduction is over, I'll say that this attack against Facebook is ill informed and ill thought out. I completely disagree with it and the other attacks these jokes of humanity have enforced on the rest of us.

Let's take the attack against the PSN (which I had the opportunity to witness real-time). When Anonymouse attacked it, they denied people who shelled out their hard-earned money access to PSN. They weren't just attacking Sony - they, inadvertently or otherwise, attacked the users. The people who engineered the operation had no conception as to the what kind of effects their actions would have, or simply didn't care.

If I could be allowed the liberty and unrealism of comparing this action with an actual life-or-death situation, it would be akin to a soldier holding a gun against a group of citizens, and then someone outside of the circle throwing a live grenade into the middle of it all to kill the soldier. It's stupid and senseless, much like the majority of Anonymous, and ends up with unnecessary and pointless collateral damage.

The paying users of my enemies are also my enemies? What the hell kind of attitude is that?

Now they're going to target Facebook, announcing the operation three months before it's slated to occur in an attempt to cause fear and panic and all that garbage. You know what other groups cause fear and panic to further their cause? Terrorists. Most of Anonymous consists of using terrorist tactics to fight for causes. They don't even have the balls to willingly show their faces to authorities, the spineless clowns.

Facebook's powers have included a privacy policy. So anyone who chooses to use the service agrees to the privacy policy. And now Anonymous, in targeting Facebook, are also targeting the users who comply with the privacy statement particulars. Again, they'll be using terrorist tactics to further their own causes.

My message to Anonymous: If you don't like Facebook, don't use it. If other people want to use a service, and you deny them access to that service, you're oppressing the users and preventing them from using their free will to make their own choices.

If I choose to sign up to Facebook, I agree to the privacy policy, which is posted for all to see. I have a Facebook account which I use for various covert activities, and knowing that Anonymous plans on attacking it is annoying as hell. If I used it regularly to keep in touch with friends, I'd be pissed off. (I use email for communications.)

Anyone who supports Anonymous are supporting oppression and terrorism in my books. People who don't like Facebook are welcome to gather the funds together and create their own better and more private social networking site. But taking options away from people is the kind of thing that causes these problems in the first place.

I feel nothing but contempt for Anonymous and its supporters. Even the people who are doing good are operating under the name of a terrorist group, and it saddens me that they don't see this hypocrisy.



Dunamis: I had never thought of using Facebook for information gathering. Then again, I don't use my fake accounts for much, but it'll be worth exploring. Many thanks for this trick! I'll be exploring it in times to come.

RE: Message from Anonymous: Operation Facebook, Nov 5 2011
Dude, Barrett Brown is no longer the face of Anon, and they had nothing to do with taking down the PSN, that was the now de-funked Lulzsec (only a 19 y/o was arrested in the UK, and even then, before "dissolving" Lulzsec claimed they still has not been caught...who knows).

Though Anon now have a thing called AntiSec going on. Thought I'd just clear that up.

Quote:Sony's Anonymous claim: a health warning
by Barrett Brown
Friday 6 May 2011

This week, Sony Corporation claimed to Congress that its investigation of the breach by which millions of customers had their credit card numbers compromised had turned up a document left on the server in question entitled "Anonymous" and containing the phrase "We are Legion", itself a fragment of our longtime slogan. Some have taken this as proof that Anonymous was responsible for the most significant online heists in memory. After all, the online activist movement has lately been engaged in a battle with Sony over its treatment of two individuals who taught others how to alter the PlayStation 3 in such a way as to install Linux OS on the gaming console, making Anonymous a natural suspect.

But those observers who are most familiar with who Anonymous is – such as the dozens of journalists who have been free to watch us at work in our operational venues – tend to agree with us that the circumstances of this incident are highly suspicious, and that any investigation into the crime in question must take into account the natural question of who might benefit from such an act – in other words, a party or parties who would have an interest in smearing Anonymous.

Continued here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/may/06/anonymous-sony

And no worries for the FB search tip, it's been proving quite handy, but if it's public. A cool thing I sometimes do, is randomly message people who show up and suggest they adapt their privacy settings (it at least stops most, just not the more determined, from seeing your info).

Edit: I just thought, on a sidenote, the "Facebook" video in question is not on the main What is the Plan video account, and seems to be something people within the "community" are divided over.


Is there anyone with any clear evidence Anonymous had anything to do with the PlayStation Network attack or that they are actually "officially" aligned as a group with a plan to attack Facebook?

At the time I was checking out Anon, BB was fairly active. However, he was considerably sporatic in various ways, and I saw his participation go either way. I'm not at all surprised.

As far as activities go, if it's coordinated via Anon IRC, it's Anonymous. "Lulzsec", whom I hadn't heard of, may have been involved, but they were operating under the name of Anonymous through the LOIC Hive (HOIC) accessible from the IRC system. I'm talking about the questionably-successful DDoS attacks on the PlayStation Network, rather than any other operation that may have been under way at the time or since. I refer you to the following from my handy collection of Anon IRC logs:

I may check into the activities again once my current research has finished. Thanks for the article and link.

My logs above'll probably be proof enough of Anon's involvement in the PSN attacks. As far as their Facebook operation goes, I found myself unable to reconnect to the AnonOps.net IRC server. While looking for information, I found this little ditty:

http://techie-buzz.com/tech-news/anon-rift-irc-takedown.html

So ol' Owen had his ass owned, it seems. There was a considerable rivalry starting between AnonHQ and AnonOps around the time of Japan's earthquake, before the article above. Members of AnonHQ had started a site called Backtrace Security, and used it as a springboard to attempt to cause problems for AnonOps.

BB called AnonHQ on it, but they kept denying it. Yadda yadda, soap opera and all that. I'm nearly curious enough to research it again.

RE: Message from Anonymous: Operation Facebook, Nov 5 2011
Dude, did you not see the target! No PlayStation even mentioned in those logs you posted.

You are now talking about a totally different and separate attack on a different site and server(s):

Anonymous takes down Sony Pictures US and UK sites

And your logs only mention the UK attack, not the US side of the plans.

Anonymous claims responsibility for the above mentioned attack. But it's nothing to do with the PlayStation Network. The attack was coordinated due to Sony prosecuting people for "hacking" their own PSP's, but to have attacked the PSN would have defeated the point, no?

Edit: Also, Barrett Brown resigned from the "position" back in mid May, just over a month after the Sony Pictures attack. Also, just in case you feel like trying to find more evidence which isn't there:
