The war isn’t in decline: Anonymous is currently sharpening their claws on PasteBin, testing an innovative DDoS attack instrument to replace the old one.
Instead of being frightened of all the anti-hacking campaigns, Anonymous is getting bigger, developing a new weapon to replace their current DDoS instrument. The innovating attack algorithm, referred to as #RefRef, is being developed in time for the Blackhat conference in Nevada. The new tool was tasted on the currently unhappy Pastebin site a few days ago.
As for the old DDoS attack tool, which has been used by the hacking until today, it was called the Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC), named after a weapon from Command & Conquer. Although the previous tool has been effective in past campaigns, it failed to show a high enough detection protection for the Anonymous members, and this weakness has led to lots of global arrests within the last year.
Last Friday, the new weapon was tested on PasteBin, better known as the hacker press release dump service. The test lasted for 17 second, but caused 42 minutes of downtime. The DDoS attack was confirmed by the site’s twitter feed. So, the hacker group Anonymous has just been nominated for a Pwnie award, or in other words the hacker Oscars, which is taking place at the Las Vegas Black Hat in August.

|where i can get the Ddos program?|
|@danger2u, I don't think they will ever make the tool publicly available, think of all the script kiddies running wild with that...|
The Internet would grind to a halt within 24 hours!

|Sounds like a very dangerous weapon in the wrong hands! Especially if you own a nuclear reactor programmed by Siemens! Thanks Sam on the ball as usual.|
|Allot of it is just propaganda..|
Anyone who knows how to work a server and network can stop this stupidity very quickly.
This is true; I have a prik or priks in RU that is recently trying to DDOS me allot. The attacks are coming from a game site.
DDOS is basically blasting the target with RST packets of overlapping packets offset a little so the system server can's reconstruct them. Is this what these buttwads claim to be their NEW weapon??
Thing is it isn't working and it isn't knocking my system offline simply is the router rules are setup and I won't say what else is used blocks these packets and bounces them. They have tried shifting and coming back from different or multiple IP's and again it won't matter...
Thing is ALL these IP's keep going back to that same gamer web site in RU; it went down and wonder why??? karma bites real good...
|@danger2u where you ask?TrojanMouse says-I don't think they will ever make the tool publicly available? well sorry tp say but it only took me about 5 seconds, among tons of other places like filecrop its also here,http://hackingalert.blogspot.com/2011/05/download-low-orbit-ion-canon-ddos.html|

|@meanie, you and I both know that being a Hacker is the first line of defense against other hackers.... like nobody gets into my system. I may not know that much script anymore, been doing this since the 80's, but alittle prevention goes a long way... The targets they hit tho are not that bright and don't have the common sense that we do all the time...|
|Laugh, another limp L7 attack bot with another funny name, and no harder to thwart than any of the old ones.||
