Anonymous is the collective most famous hacker of today and for this reason no shortage of people claiming to be part of the group when in reality it is not. An example of this is what happened to Anonymous OS, an operating system supposedly created by a branch attached to hackers who appeared on the web this week.
Since its appearance on the SourceForge.net site was downloaded over 26 thousand times, but complaints about Anonymous and users led to the site administrators deleted the project
. Linux-based distribution was considered a security risk to users and from the site recognized suspend the download software to obtain more information on their development. Recall that in recent days generated question in social networks between representatives of the group Anonymous and Anonymous OS developers. As soon as the software reached the web hackers used their Twitter accounts to inform was false and full of trojans
. In response the developers said it was crazy think that a Linux project could contain a virus, but eventually the hacker group won the lawsuit. From SourceForge project justified the elimination of arguing that the creators did not provide real information of what was in the OS (not released the source code, for example) and WIN used a misleading name for more users .
n OS for now remains outside the catalog of the renowned portal software, but its managers will reassess its decision if you have real evidence that the distro is not a potential risk to users.

Between 2010 and 2011 so far had a lot of news related to hacker attacks and cyber-activism in general. Anonymous was one of the stakeholder groups in much of the news, and for this reason the main security agencies stan world and putting an eye on potential members .
Hours ago it was learned that the FBI had arrested 16 people
, allegedly affiliated with the team behind the face mask of Guy Fawkes, in California, New Jersey and Florida. Reportedly there was a major operation by the intelligence material collected over months of research.
In the published information indicated that 14 of the apparent hackers were arrested on similar charges, while the remaining two were captured by individual criminal complaints.
There is little doubt that the U.S. government has seriously taken the initiative to cut operating Anonymous on its territory. Anyway, it is noteworthy that the U.S. is not the only country is “hunting” hackers belonging to this prestigious group. In June Spanish security forces three alleged hackers arrested and 32 others were arrested in Turkey a few days ago, so I can imagine how others will react members of Anonymous to this measure . Before any new development will keep you informed.
For some time the relationship between Sony and are more than heated Anonymous . Recall that the group of computer activists attacked several services belonging to the Japanese company, and also was charged mega-data theft PSN but its members were ordered to immediately deny their involvement.
hours ago Sony spokesmen returned to lead the guns against Anonymous, indicating “indirect responsibility” breach of PlayStation Network. And hacktivists did not sit with folded arms, as released a statement entitled “Let’s be clear. We are legion, but not us. You are incompetent Sony . id=”more-14933″>
On that note, which was published in the official blog of the activist group, hackers masquerading as Guy Fawkes launched a harsh criticism of the Japanese giant
. This is one of the translated fragments of text that Anonymous lists some points related to his indictment:
1 – Anonymous has never been known to perpetrate credit card theft [...].
2 – Many of our governments and corporations opponents have always lied to the public about Anonymous and their own activities [...].
3 – [...] Anonymous is a movement ironically transparent allowing reporters in our operating channels to watch us while we work.
4 – who has broken into the servers of Sony to steal information from credit cards and stop blaming a document clearly wanted Anonymous Anonymous was indicted by the digital theft significant history [...].
The text is long and in it are examples linked to other cases outside the Sony. The truth is that the accusations remain and at the moment is hard to know where this will end .

Anonymous, the best known of the activist groups on the Internet has taken a new goal, this time they directed their attacks Japan’s Sony , which has been highlighted recently on trial for sending two known hackers.
The most prominent case is without doubt that raised against GeoHot Sony , the hacker who managed to jump the security of the PS3 console, and then offered him the tools to all Internet users to released their consoles if they wished.
This case became one of the most controversial because of the great persecution suffering GeoHot from Sony, as the company has managed to remove everything related to their consoles release site GeoHot website.
important thing is that the group Anonymous has decided to support and Graf_Chokolo GeoHot (The other of the hackers attacked by Sony), launching attacks on the Sony services, trying to stop inaccessible the main company Web sites, as well as other services related to the PS3 .
The attacks, which are generally DDoS will be directed both to the Sony store, as the official sites and the PlayStation Network service with this seeks to Sony in check.
Although I do not consider this to teach a lesson with Sony to set aside the judicial offensive against the two hackers, I think can give you more reasons to own Sony to continue their way and increase the offensive, which would waste any attacks by Anonymous.
see what happens with this, and if Anonymous does block access to any targets.
Anonymous is one of the protest organizations that recently has gained more space, both inside and outside Site . In recent months this group of hackers led attacks on corporations that had taken the stand to Wikileaks.
now back into the ring against a target of major category: HBGary Federal , a computer security company that was contracted by the security agencies of the United States to reveal the identities of the main leaders of the activist group .
The attacks were perpetrated against the official website of the company, but also interfered in the Twitter account of Andy Barr, director of the firm. This executive had said during the weekend I knew who were the most important exponents Anonymous .
should be noted that this group of hackers has caused severe headaches for companies and security agencies. In the absence of a physical structure or with a well defined chain of command is impossible to know who and from where they plan attacks .
However, Barr said he had infiltrated the organization and that he knew the identities of the “bosses.” But he also said not hand over the information to the police, unless it was forced .
Anyway, indicated that it would release data from hackers in a press conference in California. For this reason, people showed their anger Anonymous Federal HBGary and ridiculed its director to hack your Twitter and posting offensive messages were accompanied by their phone numbers and social security .
