Yeah, just noticed that, I wish they'd use the tools full name "low orbit ion cannon" rather than LOIC, but at least the article pointed out that the tool is crap because it doesn't hide the IP address ("a study found" - like wow how long did that take?).
Should someone should point out we were all for the Australian Government filtering the church of scientology....
I too enjoyed that sentence...
I'm concerned not only that DDOS is all the press seems to hear about Anonymous, but also that really young kids are being drawn into activities without understanding the possible consequences.
Lol, justice is swift.
Soon to follow:
Arrest of "patriotic, anti Assange ddos'ers=NOT.
Arrest of Stuxnet hackers=NOT.
It is absolutely sickening that a perfecly valid non-violent digital sit in can lead to being arrested.
So much for free speech or the right to protest.
going after kids thats real mature
I thought that the bad people who participated in DDoS attacks always used their neighbours' wifi networks. If they didn't, well, it was stupid. I thought the eBaumsWorld crowd (who orchestrated this) had more wisdom than that!
If these five individuals get huge jail sentences, I'm sure it will act as a strong deterrent. No-one will ever DDoS in the name of Wikileaks again </sarcasm>
It would be a delicious irony of some of them were Scientologists. I know of some Scientologist nerds who are fans of Wikileaks! (though they still think all the anti-Scientology stuff on Wikileaks is a big pharma conspiracy)
I imagine that Graeme Wilson is masturbating over this, hoping that there will be some Chanology link.

..and chances of that are slim-to-nil. All the DDoS-fags moved on after Jan 26, 2008, IMHO
Kids? The majority of the five are over 18 and legally adults.
*cough* Starbucks *cough*
Or so I hear.
I can neither confirm or deny that my neighbour, who leaves his WiFi open and not password protected has been arrested.
I can also neither confirm nor deny that I feel slightly bad about this. Slightly.
If Greame masterbates he'll not only be out2D he's likely to drop his body by the looks of him!
I found a picture of the dad.
More fodder for OSA to label anyone criticizing the Scientology enterprise as a terrorist.
Good thing they're no longer relevant.
Responding to internet censorship with DDoS attacks is incredibly ironic, considering that part of the government's decision to want to regulate internet usership has to do with idiots who use online anonymity to carry out these attacks. This is all they need to prove that anonymity is a dangerous tool which threatens our security, and viola: No more internet anonymity. That's what you idiots who continue to take part in this shit fail to realize.
Good to know your misinformed.
who said anything about the government wanting to censor the internet as a whole?
No one did, and neither did I. I said the government wants to censor some things on the internet, such as information which should be free, and anonymity, which would be the key issue here.
oh no you didn't.
Gee, why does this name sound familiar?
Well if they're guilty, they had it coming and let em rot.
I'd sooner have murderers and rapists rot than some reclusive wankers with nothing better to do.
It's quite stupid how a boat-load of resources have been appointed to investigating these attacks while there are more meaningful crimes to investigate.
Having said that, if I was a judge I would enforce a hefty fine upon those found guilty.
*leaves to go home and check toothpaste*
Can anybody recommend a good gas cap?

Get lost feds, what we do is legit, like it or not.
"So much for free speech or the right to protest"
the UK doesnt have the right to free speech, we arent a republic we are a Constitutional Monarchy without a written constitution, as for the right to protest we dont have that either we have the right to be illegally detained by police officers in riot gear without charge or right to a trial and soon the right to be doused with water canon if the Tories can borrow them from the Police Service of Northern Ireland,
what they dont know how to use Tor or hell, even hotspotshield
It doesn't matter. Those LOIC's expose your IP's either way. Adding more stupidity to and already stupid pile of stupid.
Russia Today interview:
"All our base"
Just clarifying some facts, not condoning anything here:
1. If you sent the traffic through Tor, your IP address wouldn't be exposed. Unfortunately, that's a) stupid and b) ineffective, because you'd just end up DDoSing the first relay server in the Tor network, rather than your target.
2. No-one ever claimed the LOIC hid your IP address. The idea is that there's enough safety in numbers that the chances your IP will be the one to be picked up by the feds and "made an example of" are miniscule. Poor unlucky 5, I guess.
Of course, this is all hearsay. This site has no connection to any of this.
