    Jihadis and hackers teaming up to launch cyberattacks on the U.S. - Washington Times

    By Shaun Waterman

    Middle East- and North Africa-based criminal hackers are preparing cyberattacks this week against the websites of high-profile U.S. government agencies, banks and other companies, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

    The attacks, dubbed #OpUSA, for Operation USA, will begin Tuesday, the department said in a warning bulletin circulated to the private sector last week. The bulletin was first obtained and posted online by blogger and cybercrime expert Brian Krebs.

    The attacks are called for in the name of Anonymous, the leaderless coalition of hackers whose trademark Guy Fawkes mask has become a global symbol for their anarchistic spirit.

    “OpUSA poses a limited threat of temporarily disrupting U.S. websites,” the homeland security bulletin states, saying the attackers will likely use commercial hacking tools in a variety of “nuisance-level” strikes, defacing websites or temporarily knocking them offline.

    “Some of the participants possess only rudimentary hacking skills,” the authors add.

    More dangerous, though, is the developing alliance the organization of the attacks seems to presage between criminal hackers and violent Islamic extremists.

    The bulletin notes that the attacks are being promoted by the moderators of websites and discussion forums that host al Qaeda and other Islamic extremist material, in addition to calls through more conventional hacker channels like the bulletin board Pastebin.

    This collaboration may “signal an emerging trend of Middle East- and North Africa-based criminally motivated hackers collaborating with others regardless of their motivation,” like Islamic extremists, states the bulletin.

    “Middle East- and North-Africa-based criminal hackers will continue issuing public statements to announce cyber attack plans against high-profile targets,” the bulletin predicts.

    Homeland Security will monitor these statements for signs of an emerging alliance between Anonymous and jihadists, the bulletin goes on.

    More likely jihadists co-opting the Anonymous name. The OpIsrael stuff seemed to come out of nowhere, pushed by people never seen before or since.

    I'm sorry to say, guys, that the entrance standard for anonymous has been set as low as possible.

    And yes, any retarded fuckstick can be anonymous, and wear a guy fawkes mask, and claim the reflected glory of anonymous.

    And yes, jihadis are doing it around the world.

    I don't see why these jihadis would stop doing it. Ideas?

    They try it here on WWP, and I suspect WWP is the one of the least retarded anonymous venues around.

    One of the reasons I can't stand anonops and some of the increasingly influential "news" caterers. It's a breading ground for young domestic terrorism.

    It's like putting out a sign for recruiters: disenfranchised kids here come get them.

  11. In the eyes of government, anyone opposing them cannot be "the good guys". Try to get that through your head.

    Please allow me one more chance to give this thread at least some value:

    Onion Twitter Password Changed To OnionMan77 | The Onion

    Following today’s incident in which the Syrian Electronic Army hacked into The Onion’s Twitter account, sources at America’s Finest News Source confirmed that its Twitter password has been changed to OnionMan77 in order to prevent any future cyber-attacks.

    “We have taken the necessary measures to ensure this kind of thing never happens again,” said Onion IT specialist Nick Abersold, who noted that the new password’s length and use of numbers makes it “virtually impenetrable.”

    “There are no spaces, and the O and M are both capitalized—both tactics that I think will keep us safe for the foreseeable future. Also, there’s not one, but two 7s. So, once again, The Onion’s Twitter password is OnionMan77.”

  24. Jihadis and hackers need do very little: the USA empire is collapsing (albeit in slo-mo) under the combined weight of all its bullshit.

    Enjoy the silence.

    It dosen't even look like some of those websites are American either. Considering it was 'OpUSA' you think they could have at least tried to target USA websites with a meaning. I totally agree with you, it's kids being l33t hax0r.

    Obama’s Twitter, Facebook hacked by Syrian Electronic Army | RT

    US President Barack Obama’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were hacked and used to promote a video, which depicts the atrocities committed in Syria by the rebels, the Syrian Electronic Army hacker group said.

    "All the links that Barack Obama’s account tweeted and posted on Facebook were redirected to a video showing the truth about Syria," a SEA spokesperson wrote in an email to Mashable website.

    The altered links on the US president’s accounts led to a graphically violent 24-minute YouTube video, entitled ‘Syria facing terrorism’.

    “Obama doesn't have any ethical issues with spying on the world, so we took it upon ourselves to return the favor,” the SEA wrote on Twitter.

    According to Mashable, the Syrian hackers didn’t actually compromise Obama's social media accounts, but changed the links in the posts by tampering with the URL shortener service for

    The group appears to have hacked the electronic address one of the administrators of the website, which Obama used in his presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012, to gain access to its control panel.

    This is very odd. Most of the important stuff related to the government is run on unix. I am not much of a computer person, but i do believe that unix is hacker proof. Even if it isn't hacker proof, i doubt there are enough hackers who can hack unix that are that stupid.

    Then there is the nsa monitoring everything on the internet, so they will find you, if they are not too busy jerking off to dirty pics they find in your computer....
