LulzSec is killing the internet.

@lulzsec: try to get productive instead of destructive ;)
this we made in 1994:
have fun watching this 14mHz-proc-prod made on Amiga and dont forget to read teh scrollerz! ;)
just check out the all-time-top-productions and you´ll see theres more to be done with computers than hacking around ;)
Something tells me that hArDy's burning thru his phone credit @ 614-LULZSEC & setting us for a good solid ddos.
Just a niggling feeling. ;)

...well, seems that at least one of doc_d's concerns has now come true.
The Ministry of Peace...errr...Security of Information Technology ( BSI ) will officially open today a "Centre of Cyber Defense" ( Cyber-Abwehrzentrum ) which will now gracefully check the "attack situation" all over Germany and will with their "expertise" advise our braindead controlfreak junta in Berlin.

Thanks a lot ... bloody Patsies.

you do realize that these kind of "attacks" already existed "in the wild" before lulzsec showed up riding the sony hacker backlash wave to get some notoriety.

it's a drop in a full cup of excuses to go one step futher in the surveillance state. don't just blame the drop for it, what we need is a bigger cup to begin with.

Which translates into... ? (not being harsh here, I just don't get what the "bigger cup cup" would be?)

A bigger cup of excuses, so there's room for more excuses? Not quite what I'd call an ideal solution :D

Two hackers, one cup.

puryx: a better political society. in the sense of not being so focused on pushing control states and economic lobbies. instead being focused on improving the quality of their peoples lives, including education, access to culture and science.

psonice: they are excuses to push the control state agenda, not excuses to fuck with the world from your bedroom. the cup is a non issue for many people, but for some control freaks in government it's an important requirement to justify tighter measures which affect the liberties of us all.

ps: while i do partly agree, how is ddosing making a point here?

ps: yeah, which is why a bigger cup is not a good idea :) Maybe what we need is a glass instead of a cup, so people can see the excuses for what they are. All we need is a population that's a bit more aware of what's going on, and doesn't blindly follow what they see on tv and read in the papers.

gargaj: i think their point was "we have bigger loic than anonymous". :) but what was interesting is that they used the ddos as a tool to anger the gamer mob, and then with a simple phone redirect they used that newly gathered angered mob to damage new targets. meanwhile they're probably working on something else. :)

psonice: i'm totally for better government transparency. and a free access internet is the perfect place to host it. some folks are trying to get internet access recognized as a human right. too bad the mafiaa lobby prefers otherwise and governments tend to only listen to the bling.

how is DDOSing exactly proving a point about security? it's rather showing 'our botnet has more bandwidth than your servers' which well, so what?
oh i see i said exactly what gargaj said. that makes gargaj seem very wise! ;)
no statements, just for teh lulz

Mr Gray says there is very few websites on the internet which can withstand that bombardment and that the attacks make an important point.
"Inherently the internet is a pretty risky place if even the CIA can't keep its website protected against a group of amateurs," he said.
"I mean, I know plenty of people in the information security business who are quietly cheering these guys on."

and i bet they all work for amazon cloud...

Yes, they had a "DDoS party" as they described it as a break from the hacks / database releases, and hit quite a few sites. They were actually taking requests on their phone line - which then got so many calls that they redirected the number to the Denver FBI HQ, and DDoS'd their phone line. Balls out, arse prepared for prison :)

Their full "manifesto" is worth reading. It's pretty thought provoking - but maybe not in the ways they'd anticipated. Their words on what the other "silent" hackers are doing is well worth paying attention to though ;)

what a monkey (at arsetechnica). i'm disappointed i read his whole shit :(
