found out what it is.

Anonymous has gained access to very dangerous information. They're calling it a warhead.

It's a computer file of "top secret" information that's encrypted and they will use it as some kind of ransom I guess...
They will release the password if their demands are not met....or something to that effect.

There is more than the Internet to worry about with electronic surveillance.
Oppression of the blacks in the past, or religious wars, has nothing on the direction of the future if we keep on the present path.
The Internet is a voice, if it is lost, we all lose.

Bit off topic I know, but we have to try and keep this planet, otherwise the rich will move on when it is destroyed and we will be left with the end result.

There were rumors at Obama's rise it was timely after the neglect of New Orleans, 9-11 etc, all very sensitive stuff and near to our hearts. There are those that think Anon is a bad force etc too.

As a planet of people we need to stand and be counted or lost to the powers that reign behind closed doors eroding our futures for the will of their own.

I just hope they have their facts right for all our sake though.
Because the policing put in place to help close doors will ultimately make it harder to see the real truths behind the powers that control the world of staged TV shows and news.

/Rant off.

»www.cnn.com/2013/01/26/tech/anon···dex.html

In anger over the recent death of an Internet activist who faced federal charges, hackers claiming to be from the group "Anonymous" threatened early Saturday to release sensitive information about the U.S. Department of Justice.

They claimed to have one such file on multiple servers ready for immediate release.

The hackers have apparently taken over the website of the U.S. government agency responsible for federal sentencing guidelines, where they posted a message demanding the United States reform its justice system or face incriminating leaks to select news outlets.

The lengthy, eloquently written letter was signed "-Anonymous."

Way too late in the game for any agency to be able to shut anything down. They can shut themselves off but that is about it. They have no control over anything on or the internet itself so I just don't see how we would lose the internet over anything like this as they just don't even have a say so about it (Pirate Bay anyone?). The only thing the guberment can do now is just make empty threats and look extremely foolish doing so.

The guberment has had a multitude of opportunities to get their shit in order and decided to not pay attention to history. Now we have history repeating itself in digital form with modern day rebels reminding them that this is not "I the guberment" that is actually in control of the country (and the internet).

The guberment has people like you fooled into thinking there is something they can do while you live in that false fear of losing your digital toys which, there is nothing they can do about that either. They sure as hell got you fooled into believing that they can huh? (Hey look, another repeat of history!)

I myself will take the legal routes into getting my voice heard however, I am pleased to see that someone out there is willing to stand up and help us out while the rest of you just whine about the guberment while doing nothing about it.

If the three-letter agencies are only half as capable at swallowing the digital ocean as many tinfoil-hatters suspect, and if Anonymous turns out to be only half as skilled as they pretend to be, there's a predictable train-wreck coming for many of those hiding behind the Guy Fawkes masks.

True, let's not hope that anyone dragged into the net, innocent or guilty do not get locked down at the 'bay for terrorism.......oh, that is a law and perfectly legit now, where before it wasn't. Mandates change quite often of late because people voted for a party. The parties should then ask if we as voters are happy with certain rules they want in place or want changing.

....Just saying.....

I do think if it is Anon at the heart of this, then they, you would you assume have good reason and proof. Aaron doesn't sound like a man who would hang himself; love of life and those around him helped him in a path of helping others who not allow this to enter his mindset....

....Just saying.....

Leave the conspiracy theories alone. Aaron talked about killing himself many times. He even wrote about doing it. It is not unbelievable he killed himself.

I have not read those articles or documents or heard his comments like you have then.
I was just going off the work he did, it didn't seem like it was something he was capable of......not trying to start conspiracy theories - people who help others tend not to generally want to end it all.

It's making it to the news that helps the cause........for both sides of any conflict, good or bad, true or false. Once in the public eye stories bend and twist. Your comments in trying to correct my thoughts are exacting examples of that......interpretation of facts changes the game too much without the correct story and/or facts.

Anyway, I've said enough, I've put a view forward of this, it is a free site, let's not dive into white, black or tin foil hats.

Your right to bring attention a perception of how events may transpire from the latest offerings from anonymous....even if it sounds a little "Episode II The empire strikes back".

The text and video needs to be re-written from a more subdued and normalized response that conveys the aspirational aims that this political come war machine void is attempting to fill.

It's all a little too Hollywood for me.

How many years have we been hearing this now? That Anonymous had bit off more than they could chew, that they'd be stopped by the government or a cartel or the mafia or some such? It hasn't happened and isn't going to happen. This isn't a movie with a clean resolution in 2 hours. It's going to keep happening.

It's also far from a good guy / bad guy situation. Governments work with far worse people than Anonymous in order to obtain, or hide, the information they want.

Absolutely! But the issue really revolves around whose ox gets gored, how often, and how badly. For as long as governments have existed, they've all made quiet use of reprehensible, corrupt, or brutish individuals, at home and abroad... either directly or by exploiting the predictable foibles and consequences of what such individuals do and how they do it. As long as the benefits derived exceeds the damage associated with such individuals, their behavior will generally be tolerated, ignored, or sometimes even encouraged. But at some point, if that behavior is perceived as becoming dangerous to the particular government itself, actions will be taken (or encouraged to be taken by others) so as to render the individual(s) no longer capable of presenting the danger.

Every time Anonymous acts out another drama, it adds to the data pile being quietly accumulated by the "listeners"... data and correlations about who, what, how, and when. For a variety of reasons, that data and its correlations for a long time span may be of greater interest and value to the powers-that-be than any damage costs involving the "issues" being specifically targeted by Anonymous. How long that might continue unchanged is anyone's guess. But one thing I've observed over the years is that when the unauthorized revelation of guarded state secrets becomes part of the "behavior," the attention of three-letter agencies perks up - enormously. More significantly, those who are ostensibly giving orders and setting strategy for three-letter and many other agencies start issuing new orders and directives.

Whatever one believes about the players' innocence or guilt, the reality is that Assange and Manning, after the Wikileaks release of all that secret material, are both arguably worse off than they were before it all went down. And their futures look to be anything but carefree and joyful. Life is complex... lots of things happen in life. Lots of things that are supposed to happen, don't necessarily. There are many situations where a hidden finger or two can tip some balance scales. Or not tip those scales when they should be tipped. Put another way, there are many ways to make somebody's life a living hell without ever showing one's own hand in it. The mark of a truly successful covert action is when nobody outside the direct effects ever realizes it occurred, and especially if the target himself never grasps the "why" of things that have occurred to him. The object is simply to neutralize his continuing activity that's been perceived as harmful, and usually that means finding a way to neutralize him or his personal power or freedom. In a vital contest, one of the greatest dangers is mistakenly assuming the lack of visible, provoked action is an indication such action won't or could never occur.

Indeed, this isn't a movie plot... life rarely is. But all of human history is replete with the covert, creative settling of political "scores" or the neutralizing of people whose activities rose to be considered ultimately damaging to the politically powerful. Sometimes it came quickly... sometimes it took years... but come it did. One's own mileage may vary.

I just disagree with your opinion of the ability of the US government to shut down things like this. In my opinion all the governments in the world, working together cooperatively (which can never happen) could not shut down internet hacking groups.

The US government hasn't shut down Anonymous. They haven't shut down Wikileaks despite their pressure on the governments of 3 countries whose governments play a part in delivering Assange to the US, and despite their suspected involvement in setting up the alternative leak site OpenLeaks which was talked about here but still has not gotten off the ground and has become a joke. The US government took a lot of years to kill Osama bin Laden. The US government to the best of my knowledge hasn't gotten one conviction upheld of any Guantanemo detainee (except for a handful that plea bargained). Those are a few recent examples on which I base my opinion.

The government has less power than you think, in my opinion. They have a lot of time, a lot of resources, a national security budget the public never gets to see, but they are often big and stumbling and are certainly not all powerful.

If every member of Anonymous was killed today there would be another equally skilled group doing the same thing inside a year.

That is why I use Pirate Bay as a good example. If government entities cannot get that shut down which is on a smaller scale, how in the hell are they going to shut something down on a much much larger scale like this?

Simple answer...

They just cannot.

Shut down the internet for everyone? Nope, will never happen. The corporate ISPs out there will not say "Sure, we will just stop collecting the billions we make in revenue just for you!" Again, not gonna happen. Especially after e-commerce came about.

Anyone who thinks otherwise only fell into the falsehood of fear spewed out by them.
