Hacktivist organization, Anonymous, is threatening perhaps their biggest play ever: a massive WikiLeaks-style exposure of sensitive U.S. government secrets. As proof of their power, they announced details of the plan on hacked government website, the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC.gov). Citing the recent death of free information activist Aaron Swartz, they explain, “With Aaron’s death we can wait no longer. The time has come to show the United States Department of Justice and its affiliates the true meaning of infiltration.” Swartz was facing up to 50+ years in prison and a $4 million fine after releasing pay-walled academic articles from the popular JSTOR database.
The hacktivist group Anonymous hacked the U.S. federal sentencing website early Saturday, using the page to make a brazen and boisterous declaration of "war" on the U.S. government. The group claims mysterious code-based "warheads," named for each of the Supreme Court Justices, are about to be deployed. As of midnight Pacific time, the front page of Ussc.gov — the Federal agency that establishes sentencing policies and practices for the Federal courts — is filled with a long screed in green on black, together with this YouTube video: All areas of ussc.gov other than the front page appear to be functioning normally. In other words, there's no denial of service attack or widespread vandalism.

Il ne reste plus que 3 jours avant la fin de Facebook, si l’on en croit la menace supposément lancée par les Anonymous . Avertissement donné ou non par le célèbre collectif aux contours bien flous, le doute subsiste, mais ce ne serait pas la première fois qu’il lancerait une action de ce genre… Cette infographie réalisée par Sherweb répertorie les plus fameuses initiatives d’Anonymous, par ordre chronologique. Si l’une des premières actions, en 2006, a été lancée envers le réseau social Habbo, c’est bien le projet Chanology qui fit connaître le groupe au grand public deux ans plus tard. Il s’agit d’une série d’attaques menées contre l’Eglise de Scientologie, à l’origine en réaction à une vidéo de l’acteur Tom Cruise, vite supprimée par le mouvement religieux.
Earlier this week, the nebulous and notorious international Internet hacktivist collective known as Anonymous exposed a large ring of Internet pedophiles. Operation Darknet Tuesday, after hacking into Lolita City, a darknet website used by pedophiles to trade in child pornography, Anonymous released usernames and other information of 1,589 pedophiles trading in kiddie porn. A darknet website is a closed private network of computers used for file sharing.
Taken as a whole, Anonymous resists straightforward definition as it is a name currently called into being to coordinate a range of disconnected actions, from trolling to political protests. Originally a name used to coordinate Internet pranks, in the winter of 2008 some wings of Anonymous also became political, focusing on protesting the abuses of the Church of Scientology. By September 2010 another distinct political arm emerged as Operation Payback and did so to protest the Motion Picture Association of America ( MPAA ), and a few months later this arm shifted its energies to Wikileaks, as did much of the world's attention. It was this manifestation of Anonymous that garnered substantial media coverage due the spectacular waves of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks they launched (against PayPal and Mastercard in support of Wikileaks).
Anonymous has turned its attentions from corporations to pedophiles with the news that the hacktivist group has taken down multiple child pornography sites , including one of the largest known, with account details of its 1589 users being posted online as evidence. The incident was just part of something Anonymous is calling “Operation Darknet,” a move by the group to eliminate child pornography on the Tor network. Tor, which was originally developed as a way of protecting government communications by the U.S. Navy, now describes itself as “a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet.”
This article is the first in a two-part series tracing the development of the amorphous online community known as Anonymous, pranksters who have become a force in global affairs. Late in the afternoon of Jan. 19, the U.S. Department of Justice website vanished from the Internet. Anyone attempting to visit it to report a crime or submit a complaint received a message saying the site was unable to load. More websites disappeared in rapid succession.

Alors qu'ils viennent de fixer leur prochaine opération d'envergure au 17 décembre, le sérieux des Anonymous au plan politique est confirmé par plusieurs travaux. Changement d'époque. Le 17 décembre prochain, les Anonymous lanceront l’opération « horizon » qui devrait consacrer leur rôle politique. Ce jour-là, les Anonymous commémoreront la date anniversaire du décès de Mohammed Bouazizi, à l’origine de la révolution tunisienne et du printemps arabe.
