The semi-official Fars News Agency, close to the Revolutionary Guards, was also inaccessible for hours, but the group has not taken responsibility. According to the said source, the Foreign Ministry's website stopped operation for more than a day. Even the Supreme Leader's website and the Iranian President's website faced disrupted service for several hours after they were attacked by the group. Anonymous and the global correction. The tendency to relate past events to what is possible in the present becomes more difficult as the scope of the geopolitical environment changes.

Anonymous and the global correction

It is a useful thing, then, to ask every once in a while if the environment has recently undergone any particular severe changes, thereby expanding our options for the future. Terminology, let alone our means of exchanging information, has changed to such a degree that many essential discussions in today's "communications age" would be entirely incomprehensible to many two decades ago.

As the social, political and technological environment has developed, some have already begun to explore new options, seizing new chances for digital activism - and more will soon join in. Anon & Anthropology of Hacking. Anonymous is not a force to be reckoned with.

Anonymous' Target Planned to "Take Down" WikiLeaks. Careful, we're entering some really crazy conspiracy level stuff here. Get ready to jump down the rabbit hole with me. When hacker amalgam Anonymous attacked the computer security firm HBGary as most of the country was busy watching heavy-set men play with a leather ball, you could assume that it was retaliation for the recent crack down on its membership by the FBI and Scotland Yard .

But as we've had more time to digest the 60,000+ HBGary emails that Anonymous posted online as a big f**k you, it seems that the data intelligence firm proposed to engage in some social engineering and subterfuge of its own to "take down" WikiLeaks. Anonymous might be a hero. The hacker group has made clear its support of Julian Assange's initiative, and Anonymous made headlines last year by DDoS attacking Amazon.com, Bank of America, PayPal and any other entity or website that appeared to wrong WikiLeaks.

Firm hacked by ‘Anonymous’ plotted against WikiLeaks on bank’s behalf: report

DolanWednesday, February 9, 2011 13:33 EDT The data intelligence firm Palantir Technologies apologized Thursday for its involvement in developing a proposal to Bank of America to attack secrets outlet WikiLeaks. Two other data intelligence firms, HBGary Federal and Berico Technologies, helped to concoct a plan for a coordinated cyber assault against the website.

“I have directed the company to sever any and all contacts with HB Gary,” Co-Founder and CEO of Palantir Alex Karp said in a statement. “Palantir Technologies provides a software analytic platform for the analysis of data,” he continued. The plan was revealed after members of “Anonymous” hacked the email account of HBGary Federal CEO Aaron Barr and published its contents to the web. “The right to free speech and the right to privacy are critical to a flourishing democracy,” Karp’s statement added.

Luis Corrons, the technical director at PandaLabs, the malware detection laboratory for computer security firm Panda Security, said Anonymous members “feel that somehow they have to support the people in those countries.” “It is a worldwide thing,” Corrons told AFP. “They think the goal is obtaining freedom for those countries.” Valleywag, a Silicon Valley blog owned by the Gawker network, said the cyber attacks on official Yemen government websites had been dubbed “Operation Yemen” in Anonymous chat rooms. “Welcome back to the Internet #Egypt.

Et de fait, depuis qu’il est entré dans la lumière en décembre dernier, ce rassemblement informel mais très créatif d’internautes du monde entier n’en finit plus d’agacer tous ceux qui se mettent sur le chemin de la liberté d’expression : secte, gouvernement autoritaire ou multinationale.Le 8 décembre dernier, alors que Julian Assange est en prison, le collectif Anonymous envoie sur Twitter un message à tous ceux qui suivent l’actualité - qui suivent le fil - de WikiLeaks. Par l’intermédiaire d’un programme simple gratuit sur Internet, il propose tout à chacun de participer à une attaque en règle contre les fournisseurs de WikiLeaks, comme Amazon, Visa et Mastercards qui viennent de lâcher leur client.

Et si on rétablissait quelques vérités au lieu d'agiter les bras? “Petit génie du web”, “soupçonné d’avoir participé à une cyberattaque internationale”, “passionné par l’informatique depuis qu’il a 6 ans”, et même “cerveau des vengeurs de WikiLeaks”. Depuis quelques jours, la presse s’emballe autour du cas d’un adolescent auvergnat de 15 ans, entendu par la police il y a six semaines à propos de son rôle dans la réponse pro-WikiLeaks: au mois de décembre, alors que plusieurs organismes bancaires tels que Visa ou MasterCard avaient décidé de couper l’approvisionnement du site de Julian Assange, les Anonymous avaient massivement riposté en lançant une série d’attaques par déni de service (DDoS), paralysant les sites des entreprises incriminées.

Les soutiens de WikiLeaks contre-attaquent sur le web. Anonymous Attacks Swiss Bank After Assange's Account Closed. The Anonymous group of hacktivists is making good on its promise to attack those helping to censor WikiLeaks, the latest victim being PostFinance, who’s website has become the target of distributed denial of service (DDoS) after the Swiss bank closed the account of Julian Assange. In the latest move of what already starts to look as a harassment campaign against WikiLeaks orchestrated by various businesses and governments around the world, PostFinance decided to suspend the personal bank account of WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange.

The bank alleged that Assange, who doesn’t have a stable residence and moves around the world a lot, used his lawyers’ Geneva address to set up the account, which is against the terms of the contract. The bank said Assange's account came under scrutiny because he became a high profile individual and that it plans to transfer the funds (31,000 euros according to WikiLeaks), to another account of his choosing.

Pour protester contre le gel des comptes de WikiLeaks, des pirates informatiques ont lancé une "Opération riposte" sur le Web. Certaines de ces attaques semblent avoir été facilitées par un nouveau logiciel, mis à disposition par un groupe de pirates se faisant appeler Anonymous. Baptisé LOIC (Low Orbit Ion Cannon), en référence au film La Guerre des étoiles, le programme, dont la première version était disponible dès la fin 2009 en téléchargement, est pensé comme un outil, clé en main, permettant de participer à une cyber-attaque, sans la moindre compétence informatique.
