Anonymous Documentary - How Anonymous Hackers Changed the World Full Documentary. The Mystery of the Creepiest Television Hack | Motherboard. GIF by Dan Stuckey Right up until 9:14 PM on November 22nd, 1987, what appeared on Chicago's television sets was somewhat normal: entertainment, news, game shows.

That night, as usual, Dan Roan, a popular local sportscaster on Channel 9's Nine O'Clock News, was narrating highlights of the Bears' victory over the Detroit Lions. And then, suddenly and without warning, the signal flickered up and out into darkness. In the control room of WGN-TV, the technicians on duty stared blankly at their screens. It was from their studio, located at Bradley Place in the north of the city, that the network broadcasted its microwave transmission to an antenna at the top of the 100-story John Hancock tower, seven miles away, and then out to tens of thousands of viewers.

Time seemed to slow to a trickle as they watched that signal get hijacked. A squat, suited figure sputtered into being, and bounced around maniacally. "Well, if you're wondering what’s happened," he said, chuckling nervously, "so am I. " Anonymous Lashes Out at ISIS, calls them Gangsters and Killers. Anonymous, a loose collective of hacktivists, have called Islamic State militants (ISIS) as gangsters who have hijacked Islam and have launched a social media campaign against them, according to reports. Operation Ice Isis, as the campaign is called, aims to protect people who are defenseless, both in the cyber world and the real world. The objectives behind launching the campaign were twofold: to underscore the ISIS threat, and also to clarify that the group does not represent or uphold the values of Muslim faith, told one of the member of the group wearing the group’s trademark Guy Fawkes to France 24 on its ‘Tech 24’ program.

“We needed the public to understand how urgent the situation is in Iraq. Before the mainstream media took serious direction in reporting the ISIS threat, we were one of the first to communicate it to the masses via the video we uploaded on YouTube in June explaining how and why ISIS came to be. He added that the ISIS were no different from white supremacists. U.S. Military Hackers Humiliated by Civilian Hackers in Cyber War Games. A series of online war games was held by the US military to ditch reservist hackers against its active-duty cyber-warriors.

The results however, are not much promising. “The active-duty team didn’t even know how they’d been attacked. They were pretty much obliterated,” Navy Times staffer Capitol Hill reported. The games were held in a compound at the headquarters of the US Cyber Command (CyberCom) at Fort Meade. During the games, the military’s online task force members struggled to guard their network against the numerous attacks made by the reservists. Many of them have day jobs of IT security specialists and the final results have still been kept confidential. Fort Gordon, Ga., hosted a multiservice cyber exercise in June that included active-duty, National Guard and reserve troops. From 2009 onwards, CYBERCOM has commenced its training program under which 6,000 full-time soldiers have been trained so far. However, some other problems are there as well. Anonymous ►Operation Green Rights. Snowden Leaks Documents on NSA Intelligence Relationship with Israel. In his latest leak, ex-NSA tech Snowden has revealed that chaos which has taken over the Middle East is the result of the cash and support granted by the US to Israel.

The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald further writes that Obama is merely pretending to be ‘helpless’. Another document reveals Israel was flagged as top spy threat to U.S. by the NSA itself. A clear examination took place in which the former Guardian unveils the exotic contrast that exists between the UN’s public declarations and actual doings behind the curtain. This comprises also of Obama’s outwardly depiction of sorrow pertaining to the Gaza matter. The upgraded leaks of Snowden document of April 2013 have been analyzed and published by Greenwald.

Moreover, “the single largest exchange between NSA and ISNU is on targets in the Middle East which constitute strategic threats to US and Israeli interests,” the paper which had been revealed highlighted. One of the several ‘key points’ of the following cooperation involves, Anonymous asks Elite hackers to join them in a massive cyber attack on Israel. The online hacktivist Anonymous has a message for Israeli government in which the group has asked elite hackers from around the world to join them and conduct a massive cyber attack against the state of Israel. A YouTube video message uploaded couple of days ago talks about Israeli air strike on Gaza and criticizes the killings of innocent children and women. We’ve been fighting Israel and their terrorist state for over 4 years, and we have not grown weary or tired. It has only made us stronger. Therefore, we are calling upon the anonymous collective, and the elite hacker groups to join our crusade, and to wage cyber war against the state of Israel once more.

This Friday will be a day in where Israel will feel fear tingling in their servers, and homes. You can read the complete transript of the message here. This will not be the first time when hackers will conduct a cyber attack on Israel over ongoing conflict. Let’s see how this cyber attack will proceed. Anonymous vows to unleash its 'wrath' on U.S. lawmakers over cybersecurity bill. A threat by the hacktivist group Anonymous over a new cybersecurity bill scheduled for committee markup next month is being taken seriously by the Washington D.C. capitol police.

The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014 (CISA), authored by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), is being labelled by many constitutional groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), as the third installment of a much-despised piece of Internet legislation widely known as CISPA.

CISPA, or the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, was a hugely unpopular bill that has twice been dropped by the U.S. Senate. As a law, it would have permitted the U.S. government to share sensitive information with companies about the online habits of U.S. citizens, specifically, when deemed necessary to protect against rather ambiguously defined “cyber threats.” Sens. Feinstein and Chambliss could not be immediately reached for comment. Photo via edans/Flickr (CC BY 2.0) Cryptome to Publish All Remaining Edward Snowden Documents in July. Anonymous Hacks New York’s Board of Elections Website Against Brazil Football World Cup.

Anonymous, the hacktivist collective, compromised the New York State Board of Elections official website recently to protest against the FIFA World Cup starting from tomorrow in Brazil. The hacktivists are protesting against the reported human rights abuses in Brazil, most of which were associated with the ongoing preparation for the World cup. The Brazilians have not taken it well the whopping amount of USD 11 billion spent on the World Cup hosting while majority of the countrymen reel under poverty, corruption and starvation. Aside that, many citizens were forced to leave their homes in an apparent drive to clean up the city to welcome influx of visitors. Sao Paulo’s transit workers are already holding a general strike, today being the sixth day, and the government machinery has tried to subdue them with teargas. Edward Snowden's statement in support of Reset the Net - Reset The Net. Scarface Writer Oliver Stone to Make a Film on Edward Snowden’s Whistleblowing. Oliver Stone is known for depicting famous [rather infamous] real life stories on screen.

And the list of his highly successful real-life depictions includes the Scarface, Kennedy assassination, the Watergate break-in, the Vietnam conflict, and the Bush administration’s ‘war on terror.’ The latest to be included in the list is the adaptation of ‘The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man,’ a book published earlier this year by Luke Harding, the Guardian journalist, on the ongoing NSA surveillance programs and Snowden’s role in exposing it, according to a media report. “This is one of the greatest stories of our time. A real challenge,” said Stone. The Oscar-winning director plans to produce the movie with his regular business partner Moritz Borman, while Harding and other Guardian journalists will be production and story consultants. “I’m glad to have the Guardian working with us,” commented Stone. The shooting is scheduled to begin before the end of this year.

Anonymous plans cyberattacks on World Cup 2014 sponsors. A branch of the notorious hacktivist collective Anonymous is bringing its digital hellfire down upon the World Cup. The hacktivists plan to target websites of the event's corporate sponsors, which include Adidas, Emirates airline, Coca-Cola and Budweiser, to protest financial inequality in Brazil, where the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off next week. Brazil has reportedly spent at least $11.7 billion in its preparations for the 2014 World Cup. That's more than three times the projected cost—an increase many believe to be the result of government corruption. Meanwhile, concerned citizens say the country is in dire need of hospitals and schools. Reuters spoke to someone operating under the alias Che Commodore, who claimed to be involved with the operation. "We have already conducted late-night tests to see which of the sites are more vulnerable," Che Commodore told Reuters. "We have a plan of attack. " The opening match of the tournament will be played Thursday June 12 between Brazil and Croatia.

In Defense of Edward Snowden against John Kerry’s Slanderous Attacks. “The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naïve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.” —H. L. Mencken My good colleague Lawrence has already highlighted the hypocrisy behind Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent comments on NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Treason is the only federal crime that’s defined in the Constitution along with the procedural and evidentiary standards spelled out. It’s very clear Snowden has not “levied war” or adhered to an enemy of the United States. “The Fourth Amendment as it was written — no longer exists.

“My priority is not about myself. Snowden explains what the NSA can do with your phone even when it’s off | Hack Read. Edward Snowden, ex-NSA contractor and the whistleblower about NSA’s massive surveillance dragnets, says the US government can remotely control a targeted cellphone. In an exclusive interview with Brian Williams of NBC News, who interviewed him in Moscow last week, Snowden spoke about some of the revelations made last year and the reason he chose to do so. Snowden is staying under political asylum in Moscow, Russia since July 2013. He said technology along with massive funding can allow any intelligence service to remotely control a target cellphone. “The NSA, the Russian intelligence service, the Chinese intelligence service, any intelligence service in the world that has significant funding and a real technological research team can own that phone… as soon as you turn it on, it can be theirs. They can turn it into a microphone, they can take pictures from it, they can take data off of it.”

He added that he is a patriotic American citizen standing against violations of the Constitution. NSA releases Snowden’s Email Conversation! Snowden Responds! | Hack Read. In an interview with NBC, former National Security Agency (NSA) tech and now a whistleblower Edward Snowden claimed that the agency had complete record of his internal complaints regarding government policy. Now the government of United States has released an email in which Snowden has been asking several questions. The email does not qualify the cetagary of whistleblowing, means that publicizing such an email is not a surprise.

As mentioned earlier, Snowden himself has indicated that he raised internal worry more than 10 times before he leaked his set of documents. Read the email below: Snowden e-mail released by NSA Read Snowden’s reply to the email: Q: How do you respond to today’s NSA statement and the release of your email with the Office of General Counsel? The NSA’s new discovery of written contact between me and its lawyers – after more than a year of denying any such contact existed – raises serious concerns. Q: Were there others? Yes, and not just on this topic. No, not at all. Watch Primetime Special: Inside the Mind of Edward Snowden.

A key claim by Edward Snowden — that his unmasking of government spying programs has not hurt anyone — was immediately called into question Wednesday by a former ambassador to Russia and a former top counterterrorism official. Snowden, defending himself during an exclusive NBC News interview with Brian Williams, said that the government had never shown “a single individual who’s been harmed in any way” by his disclosures. But Michael McFaul, who left the ambassadorship earlier this year to teach at Stanford University, said that the revelations had damaged American diplomatic relationships with friendly countries who were upset by National Security Agency surveillance. “That’s damage to the United States,” McFaul said. “If you’re a patriot, you don’t want to damage our relationships with our allies.” Among other leaders, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was said to be infuriated upon learning that U.S. surveillance extended to the tapping of her own phone.
