In Wikileaks revenge thing type operation.
"the Paypal attack was posted to Twitter on December 6, declaring 'target: www.paypal.com is YOYOing. Keep firing your lazors!'"
fuckers that have fought and arselicked their way to the top in years gone by.
Well done on being Homer / pretending to be Homer for teh lulz.
One or the other.
against the banking system?
I remember looking at it once and just having no idea what was going on. What kind of community does it have? How does anyone get involved there?
But I couldn't work out any sense of converstation or logic to it. I can't understand how the same group are responsible for highly organised cyber attacks on major institutions, when they're like a million Foleys all trying to out-gross one another (no offense, Craig).
b are the outcasts
do you go on, the times that I've been on the music section it just seems that not many people post on threads, I don't know how a community could form there
and you get involved much as you would on any board: posting lots.
Stay away from /b/ though.
generally though it's just porn and racism. They're not the ones crusading across the web.
But it's as good a place as any
did they manage to down paypal? that'd be a good one. as for /b/, it's not really the scary hideous place everyone says it is. it's just a load of porn and swearing.
http://www.mastercard.com/ does indeed seem to be down, 2 hours after ^that was posted.
Nice work, I guess.
how much traffic does mastercard.com really get?
and how much income does the company directly make from the site itself?
a minor inconvenice and nothing more.
So all they've demonstrated is they can create a minor incovenience.
Taking down mastercard.com is NOTHING like taking down Mastercard operation.
Its a good bit of PR in support of wikileaks, nothing more.
Taking down mastercard.com means a few techies at mastercard have to work a bit harder this afternoon.
Arresting Assange is almost certainly the beginning of the endgame for him - extradition to Sweden; extradition to US; who knows what.
I'm all for the actions of Anonymous against Mastercard but all they've done is cause a MINOR incovenience to a massively rich corporation.
I hear that's the tagline for the next Zonino.
