Raymond As editor of the Jargon File and author of a few other well-known documents of similar nature, I often get email requests from enthusiastic network newbies asking (in effect) "how can I learn to be a wizardly hacker? ". Back in 1996 I noticed that there didn't seem to be any other FAQs or web documents that addressed this vital question, so I started this one. A lot of hackers now consider it definitive, and I suppose that means it is.
Still, I don't claim to be the exclusive authority on this topic; if you don't like what you read here, write your own. If you are reading a snapshot of this document offline, the current version lives at Note: there is a list of Frequently Asked Questions at the end of this document. Anonymous Desktop OS Released, Hacking Tools Included. The hacking group Anonymous now has its own desktop operating system, pre-loaded with tools for finding Website vulnerabilities and simulating denial-of-service attacks.
However, some members of the group are already distancing themselves from the software. Anonymous-OS is based off Ubuntu and uses MATE, an alternative user interface. The OS comes pre-loaded with a variety of hacking programs, such as the denial-of-service attack simulator Ddosim, the exploit scanner Sql Poison and the password cracker John the Ripper. It also comes decked out in Anonymous logos and slogans. A Tumblr blog with information about the OS says it was created "for educational purposes" and for "checking the security of web pages. " A Website called The Hacker News first spotted the OS on Wednesday, but already, one of Anonymous' Twitter feeds is warning users to be careful.
UPDATE: The AnonOps Twitter feed now claims the OS is "fake" and "wrapped in trojans. " Black fax. The term black fax refers to a prank fax transmission, consisting of one or more pages entirely filled with a uniform black tone.
The sender's intention is typically to consume as much of the recipient's fax ink, toner, or thermal paper as possible, thus costing the recipient money and/or denying the recipient the use of their machine (this is similar to computer-based denial of service attacks). This is made easier because the fax transmission protocols compress the solid black image very well, so a very short fax call can produce many pages. Black faxes have been used to harass large institutions or government departments, to retaliate against the senders of junk faxes, or merely as simple pranks. The basic principle of a black fax can be extended to form a black fax attack.
In this case, one or more sheets are fed halfway through the sender's fax machine and taped end to end, forming an endless loop that cycles through the machine.
DDoS. IRC. LOIC. Anatomy of an Anonymous Attack on the Vatican. Anatomie d’une attaque informatique des Anonymous. La société de sécurité Imperva s’est penchée sur le mode opératoire des Anonymous pour préparer et réaliser une attaque informatique.
Pour procéder à cette autopsie, l’éditeur précise avoir analysé les logs d’une des cibles en 2011 des cyber-activistes. De cette attaque qui s’est échelonnée sur 25 jours, les experts en sécurité d’Imperva tirent plusieurs enseignements et hypothèses. D’abord, les profils des Anonymous impliqués dans l’attaque.
Deux grands profils sont ainsi identifiés : les hackers compétents, entre 10 et 15, et les participants novices, voire même sans compétences techniques. AnonOps. PET - CyberWiki. The last line of cyber defense. What It's Like to Participate in Anonymous' Actions. Anonymous, who have been on a week long sprint/spree to paralyze website sites like Mastercard and Paypal, are often described in the news as a "group" with "members.
" This is usually followed by a series of prolonged qualifications and caveats because many characteristics we usually associate with groups don't seem to apply comfortably with Anonymous: there are no leaders, anyone can seemingly join, and participants are spread across the globe, although many of them can be found on any number of Internet Relay Chat Channels where they discuss strategy, plan attacks, crack jokes, and often pose critical commentary on the unfolding events they have just engendered. Earlier this week, The Economist listened in on the IRC channels, opening a fascinating window into the order behind the seeming chaos of Anonymous and providing a sense of how the Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks are coordinated by a trusted group of Ops who leverage the labor of thousands of other contributors.
Etes-vous devenu un pirate du réseau Anonymous à votre insu? Suite à la fermeture du site de téléchargement Megaupload et à l’interpellation de ses dirigeants jeudi dernier, le réseau de hackers Anonymous a lancé une vague de cyber-attaques.
Pour mener ces attaques, les pirates ont notamment eu recours aux réseaux sociaux. La nébuleuse Anonymous utilise habituellement ces réseaux pour promouvoir leurs activités et proposer une participation volontaire aux campagnes de piratage. Mais lors des attaques de jeudi, des messages annonçant l’attaque en cours ont circulé sur Twitter. Les internautes qui cliquaient sur le lien accompagnant les messages lançaient, à leur insu, une attaque contre les sites visés par Anonymous.
