Considering that Osama bin Laden is now dead, which means that the terrorist threat to the United States is reduced, the Department of Homeland Security needs a new enemy to fight.
The reason is clear – without enemies there’s no reason for existence. Everyone understands that voters won’t allow Homeland Security to exist if they get beaten up by a cop rather than by a terrorist. So, the media reports prove that Homeland Security has already settled on the hacker group Anonymous as a potential Enemy #1. According to a new Security bulletin, this particular hacker group has expressed interest in attacking industrial systems controlling such critical infrastructures as gas and oil pipelines, as well as chemical plants and so on.
In fact, this was the same claim that the Homeland Security earlier made for Al Qaeda and which never happened. In the meantime, the outfit itself admits that the hacker group hasn’t got necessary skills. However, the hacktivists are believed to get such skills very quickly “by studying publicly available information”.
The Homeland Security warned that experienced and skilled members of the hacker group could develop the capabilities to access and trespass on control system networks rapidly. At the same time, the report admits that attacks on these significant systems aren’t actually Anonymous’ style, because the latter usually prefers to “harass its targets by rudimentary attack methods”. However, the Anonymous’ interest in attacking those systems could increase once they realize how poorly they are actually secured and find out how to leverage publicly available data about vulnerabilities.
There is evidence that the DHS used to justify putting hacktivists in its sights: it turned out to be a July post at Pastebin over a DDoS attack against Monsanto and future plans against the company. Another proof was a tweet by one of the hacktivists over the results of browsing the directory tree for Siemens SIMATIC. Another hacker revealed XML and HTML code used to query the SIMATIC system in order to search for vulnerabilities inside. That’s why the Homeland Security is afraid that the hackers could launch the attacks similar to Stuxnet against American infrastructure. Just to compare, Stuxnet has been developed by some of most highly trained technicians in the country. Moreover, it had to be manually installed in offline machines, and this is something that Anonymous definitely couldn’t do. Finally, as a hacktivist movement, the group has always claimed to be on the side of the people, not against them.

|they got better things to worry about and they going after a hacker group that could be somewhere is the world, lol|
|In order to avoid their budgets being significantly reduce, GOV agencies have to maintain or increase their activities from prior budget periods. No agency wants to lose millions in Oct when the budget year starts. The de facto rule is that you expend all you were given, or it gets taken away and your new budget shrinks accordingly. (Overseas) Members of Anonymous be warned; if you look up a see a small plane, it is no hobbyist, it is a drone; RUN! ~~~ Anonymous - the new Bin Laden. Go figure.|

|this is why theres a war every 10 years so all the tanks guns rockets dont go rusty|
|They claim Anonymous to be on yours and mine side? BS.. Then have them explain all the personal financial, etc. files they released in regards to us?|
The accounts again you and I have were hacked into to what? Their claim to show how bad corporate IT security was? All it did was screw you and I NOT the Corporations anyway..
They are nothing but a bunch of egotistical fukz wanting their 15 minutes of fame - well they now have it and I will put money down they can't run fast enough to hide or rat on each other to cut a dealz..... They are already doing it..
As I already said before; they messed with the money and THAT will get the powers to be to come after you...

|Anon is to Big To Fail ! They do not 4 give They do not forget @ 4 wasn't Anon the ones who exposed the police officers that killed a young homeless man by beating him to death? his last words were Dad..All i seen Anon do is go after bad people and corporate greed How can you find something that attacks from all parts of the world? Global police? Anon is on our side menahunie u should be supporting them not knocking them|
|uax4it UR totally clueless as to the REAL world. As for the Homeless man; They never brought it to the public knowledge; it was already known information. As for that incident you or I do not know the full story as to what happened; yet you judge. That man was homeless because his family wouldn't let him live with them because they were scared sh-tless due to his mental instability; yet these money hungry bastards are now singing to the media how their son was killed poor boy - jeez I wanna puke. All they are now doing is looking to make that incident into a payday for themselves..|
So get the full story before you make yourself look stupid..
I am not on any side; except I wait for full disclosure as to what ever happens. Basing your decisions on what you see in the media makes people extremely stupid.. We call those people sheepole - no brains and follow the herd going baaa to the slaughter..
|menahunie you dont even realize it but your a slave to corporations. Matter of factly everything you buy when you think your making a choice on what you purchase look again at who it is selling you the product then do your homework you have no choice when you purchase anything read up on it. as for side i am for the people. the global elite run this country and are moving into other countries running them too.it want be long now you'll have to have a license to breathe. these so called corporations dont want money anymore they want to control you and me so before adding to there cause do some homework. btw im not in anyway trying to blast you im just suggesting getting an education. To be frank start with economics. N please dont come back talking about how i didnt put a comma here or there i am not making any money by typing this or am i getting a grade so its just to get a point across. I apologize in advance if this made you feel uncomfortable or if you feel like i have said something to try and humiliate you im in no way aiming for that im just trying to say that everyone even i need to be more educated about what is going on. The Bible says "even the elite will be fooled". So we all need more knowledge about what is happening to our brothers and sisters in every part of the world.|
|We do have choices when we buy items. I buy mine from local growers and suppliers not walwort or any other places.|
There are a few item where we do have to buy due to the technologies involved; yet you still have a choice and I am not any slave to any corporation; THAT is what scares them people like me and others.
My isp is local and not some international conglomerate. Many people are leaving the banks and doing business with local credit unions and you see the attempts by the banks to deal with this lose.
I have no credit cards or any loans - what about you?
I deal in cash and banks are trying to eliminate cash.
As for my electronics - lets say they are donated and not bought.. The barter system is back in full force and THAT is driving the powers to be nuts. A contractor doing work for a doctors services for each others services and more.
People today are not self sufficient and wouldn't know which end of a shovel to use to grow food or build something.
The only way they can get food is from a market or McDonald's.. They are dependent sheepole...
I have been in the real world and IN different countries so have others - I've seen the good but mostly evil done to fellow humans by other humans in repressive positions of power; yet many posts are ignorant nor have they been made with any knowledge based on fact; but on emotion and ignorance..
I did not vote for OBAMA since I wasn't that stupid or that gullible.
You are seeing more and more states getting sick and tired of the constant blackmail done by the Federal Government with the states own money - money from you and I.
NAFTA and GAT I and the more intelligent people knew what it was really - to convert this country's economy into a consumer economy and not a producing economy and NOW the sheepole are seeing it for what it really was. Even now the Federal Government is with the Mexican Government starting to allow Mexican cargo trucks - so called cleared for entry to drive across the border and deep into the United States to deliver their so called cargo. More loss of jobs in the thousands - Americans more of them out of work. YET what is ignored is the cartels are just plain drooling at the thought of this.
Treaties signed by this federal Government with other countries to have ARMED FOREIGN TROOPS ON AMERICAN SOIL in the event of civil unrest here, FEMA Camps already constructed to hold millions in place already; the troops are already here. In Idaho the azzhole Politicians are setting up a treaty with China for an enclave of China manufacturing and imported Chinese workers in exchange for money. They come in an build this factory zone fifty miles square with imported Chinese workers which many know is BS - the real odds the so called workers would most likely be military personnel - classic military Trojan horse. There are also Nuclear facilities not more than fifty miles from this enclave. I can go on. The information is out there; you only have to look at it.
I don't own a house and can go where ever and when ever I want and thousands of others do the same..
I am way past the homework...
|republicans are the largest national security threat.|
why doesn't anyone do something about them and their greed?
they do whatever they want, ruin the worlds economies, and then blame obama for it...
they block everything obama tries to do to keep his election promises and then claim he does nothing.
that country is really messed up and is truly a failed "culture" if you can think there is such thing as culture in america.

|Wow i still support what they do by exposing dirt bags and they will never take my freedom they can bring who ever they want in the End the people will win. Camps couldn't hold the Jews you think there going to hold American? Never Happen the have my rifle from my cold dead hands.|
|I'm looking at these comments and you are all correct from certain perspectives. You all are using internet to communicate your comments so you are in fact a corporate slave of some sort. We are all headed for some sort of unrest I think. (I wish it were not so) To put this hacker group with Osama is about right as Osama was not really a threat except to the wallets of the common man. I wish this hacker group would just expose real corrupt persons oppressing people. We have no need for homeland security. Our troops need to come back home and do that job. Law enforcement has gotten so far out of control, and do we really need it? We have so many useless laws, war on drugs is a sham. Let people arm themselves to protect their own, criminals only prey after the week. When I lived in New Orleans, dude tried to mug me, well I shot his ass. The city had just enacted a no questions asked clause where if you are attacked you have the RIGHT to protect yourself. All the cop said to me was good work. LOL want less crime thats how you do it.|
|Anonymous is a quasi-organized group which I think consists mainly of pranksters. I doubt seriously that they have a nefarious aim or the means to accomplish one. They seem to be mainly trying to stick it to The Man...so to speak. Capitalism needs a good poke in the eye once in a while.|
