Quote:Update: AntiSec Exposes U.S. Soldiers' S/Ns, Passwords, Vows Attack on Monsanto

In related news, Anonymous vowed Monday to step up attacks on contractor Monsanto Comp. (MON).

Monsanto is a firm with a long and controversial history. It is accused of abusing intellectual property rights to sue small farms (allowing its patented crops to blow seeds onto their properties, then suing them); trying to bribe officials in Canada and Indonesia [1][2]; and suing dairy farmers who advertise that their milk doesn't contain growth hormones. And they also were the company responsible for spraying Agent Orange all over soldiers in Vietnam, which is thought to have led to cancer and other ailments.

Anonymous broke the news of new possible attacks, writing:

@MonsatoCo is now suing small dairy farmers for advertising that they use no growth hormones. For NOT using their product.


The operation's Twitter account "OpMonsanto", posted on June 26:

We're going to hit @MonsantoCo with something a little bit more serious than a DDoS this time around. ğck 'em. #ExpectUs



It posted a brief press release, writing:

Over the last 2 months we have pushed the exposure of hundreds of pages of articles detailing Monsanto's corrupt, unethical, and downright evil business practices. We've created a nice go-to reference guide on piratepad/anonpad(anonpad.org/opmonsanto, backed up elsewhere), where anyone can read up on and add their own info about MonsantoCo.

We blasted their web infrastructure to shït for 2 days straight, crippling all 3 of their mail servers as well as taking down their main websites world-wide. We dropped dox on 2500+ employees and associates, including full names, addresses, phone numbers, and exactly where they work. We are also in the process of setting up a wiki, to try and get all collected information in a more centralized and stable environment. Not bad for 2 months, I'd say.

What's next? Not sure... it might have something to do with that open 6666 IRC port on their nexus server though ;)

Expect Us


It indeed "doxed" Monsanto's employees -- in fact it appears to have exposed the names and addresses of 2,500+ of them. How this information might be used/abused is unknown, but it could lead to at least some minor harassment.

Read the entire article at dailytech.com It's quite good and explains what is going on quite well without going into details that could jeopardize anyone personally.
Monsanto has had this coming for years in many peoples opinions, the comments on the article basically boil down to ğck Monsanto.





Quote:On Friday, AnonymousIRC tweeted it was Happy Hacker Independence Day and dumped information from IRC Federal, a contractor for the FBI and other government agencies, to celebrate their holiday with a F**k FBI Friday. The hacktivists claimed to have "laid nuclear waste to their systems, owning their pathetic windows box, dropping their databases and private emails." The attack was waged against IRC Federal because of the company's record of "selling out their 'skills' to the US empire."

According to the Pastebin post, the members of Anonymous who are involved in the AntiSec hacking campaign were able to gain initial access to IRC Federal by using a SQL injection attack. The Pastebin statement was decorated with an ASCII art mushroom cloud and claims to have found internal data for various government agencies including:

a proposal for the FBI to develop a "Special Identities Modernization (SIM) Project" to "reduce terrorist and criminal activity by protecting all records associated with trusted individuals and revealing the identities of those individuals who may pose serious risk to the United States and its allies". We also found fingerprinting contracts for the DOJ, biometrics development for the military, and strategy contracts for the "National Nuclear Security Administration Nuclear Weapons Complex".

gaah.gif They are going to pull the plug on the net before long if this keeps up. Funny thing, SQL injection attacks have been around for sometime and is a well known potential vulnerability.
How is it that security company would still have this vulnerability? That's a basic exploit and shows the caliber of these bozos, an FBI security contractor owned by a basic exploit.

Could be Yankees, most of that can be prevented with a database firewall though.

clap.gif Great read!

Quote:To Monsanto, we demand you STOP the following:-Contaminating the global food chain with GMO’s.
- Intimidating small farmers with bullying and lawsuits.
- Propagating the use of destructive pesticides and herbicides across the globe.
- Using “Terminator Technology”, which renders plants sterile.
- Attempting to hijack UN climate change negotiations for your own fiscal benefit.
- Reducing farmland to desert through monoculture and the use of synthetic fertilizers.
-Inspiring suicides of hundreds of thousands of Indian farmers.
-Causing birth defects by continuing to produce the pesticide “Round-up”
-Attempting to bribe foriegn officials
-Infiltrating anti-GMO groups
Monsanto, these crimes will not go unpunished. Anonymous will not spare you nor anyone in support of your oppressive illegal business practices.

Amazing, they are saying what we would want the government to say to Monsato, instead the govt hops in bed with them, drinks a Monsato protien shake and calls AntiSec terrorists. rofl.gif

Oh the irony, everybody's going to have a lot of explaining to do. A little "character building" exercise for those in government and corporations to be scared of what the people can do again instead of the other way around.

My take on these increasing 'attacks' are false flag cyber terrorism. Or have been encouraged, goaded into doing these cyber attacks.

Bottom line, this is not going to hurt Monsanto (profits). People are aware how evil this corporation is, vote year on year as the most evil corporation in the world.

At the last bilderberg meeting, the internet and more overt control of how it is used was discussed in detail. Only need to look at the attendee list.

These attacks won't get msm attention only in the vague terms, but to build the argument for tighter internet control. TPTB have stated they want the net as regulated as TV.

Quote:Former CIA Director: Build a New Internet to Improve Cybersecurity

So, here are some guesses as to what voluntary will mean:

* Do you want to login to your bank? You’ll need your trusted credentials for that.
* Online trading account? You’ll need your trusted credentials for that.
* Book an airline ticket? You’ll need your trusted credentials for that.
* Sign up for Internet service? You’ll need your trusted credentials for that.

It’s voluntary. Trust us.

—White House Calls for ‘Trusted’ Internet Identities for Americans

This article makes ridiculous assumptions; first, that users of the current implementation of the Internet are somehow ‘anonymous’, and second, that the U.S. doesn’t conduct deep packet inspection of Internet traffic because it’s illegal.

On this anonymity that we supposedly enjoy, see the ancient but sill relevant: Ugly Truth About Online Anonymity.

As for the U.S. not conducting deep packet inspection, see any of the several Cryptogon posts about Mark Klein and the Narus Insight system.
Via: NextGov:

The United States may seriously want to consider creating a new Internet infrastructure to reduce the threat of cyberattacks, said Michael Hayden, President George W. Bush’s CIA director.

Several current federal officials, including U.S. Cyber Command chief Gen. Keith Alexander, also have floated the concept of a “.secure” network for critical services such as banking that would be walled off from the public Web. Unlike .com, .xxx and other new domains now proliferating the Internet, .secure would require visitors to use certified credentials for entry and would do away with users’ Fourth Amendment rights to privacy. Network operators in the financial sector, for example, would be authorized to scan account holders’ traffic content for signs of trouble. The current Internet setup would remain intact for people who prefer to stay anonymous on the Web.

Hurt Monstanto by not buying their products & associate business partners, but telling the wider public about monsanto and its practices. Eat food that is resourced locally as much as you can.

Although Monsanto have almost cornered the world food market and it needs to be reversed, giving authorities the excused to clamp down on the Internet is not helping the cause.

Quote:Anonymous Threatened Orlando Mayor According to Police; Still Fueling the Web Crackdown

I never used to have a problem with Anonymous and their sometimes hilarious exploits, especially when it came to the “Church” of Scientology. However, when they start doing things that police departments can construe as a direct threat against a public servant, I start to worry. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that these types of actions are exactly what the government needs to push through China-style Internet legislation.

Like Wikileaks, I'm beginning to suspect Anonymous is a controlled opposition. The crackdown seems inevitable.
