Welcome to the World Cyberwar One

“Welcome to the World Cyberwar One
Please distribute this declaration to all concerned.

There exists a reasonable tendency to judge from the past what is possible in the present. This becomes less reasonable to the extent that the environment changes. It is a useful thing, then, to ask every once in a while if the environment has recently gone through any particular severe changes and thereby expanded our options. Over the last twenty years, for instance, the terminology has changed to such a degree that many of today’s essential discussions would be entirely incomprehensible to anyone living two decades ago. Never in history has this been so true as it is now, at the onset of the communications age. As the environment has changed, some have already began to take the new options, and more will do so soon. It is time for the rest of the world to begin to understand why.

When a release by Wikileaks to the effect that the government was even more specifically corrupt and horrid than previously realized prompted Tunisians to step up active dissent and take to the streets in huge numbers for the first time, a loose network of participants within the international Anonymous protest movement attacked non-essential government websites (those not providing direct services to Tunisians) at the prompting of our Tunisian contacts; one such site was replaced with a message of support to the Tunisian people, with the others merely being pushed offline by means of a DDOS attack involving thousands of computer users who request large amounts of data from a website at once in order to overwhelm it. Other assistance programs have begun to follow in the days since President Ben Ali fled the nation that reviled him, with Anonymous and other parties working with Tunisians both in-country and abroad to provide the nation’s people with the tools and informational resources they need to begin building up new, reasoned political institutions capable of ensuring a freer civic life. Our Guide to Protecting the Tunisian Revolution series – a collaboration between hundreds of veterans of traditional revolutionary movements as well as practitioners of the “new activism” – has been disseminated both online and in printed copies; aside from tips on safety during confrontation and the like, these also explain how to establish secure yet accessible networks and communications for Tunisians as well as instructions on establishing neighborhood syndicates capable of uniting to promote a better civic life for the nation as a whole. Already, such organizations are now being established across Tunisia, just as they will be established elsewhere as this movement proceeds.

In the meantime, there are obstacles to be overcome. Those within the Tunisian government who seek to deny liberty to “their” people are easy enough to deal with; the greatest threat to revolution comes not from any state but rather from those who decry it without understanding it. In this case, the idea that a loose network of people with shared values and varying skill sets can provide substantial help to a population abroad is seen as quixotic or even unseemly by many of those who have failed to understand the last ten years, as well as those whose first instinct is to attack a popular revolt rather than assist it. Elsewhere, a number of American pundits have decided to criticize the revolution as possibly destabilizing the region; many of these once demanded the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and greeted every Arab revolt as the work of President Bush but now see nothing for themselves in the cause of Arab liberty. Some have even portrayed the movement as the work of radical Islamists; most cannot find Tunisia on a map. I will happily debate any and all of them, and have done so already with amusing results. Suffice to say that the results of our efforts are already on display and will become more evident as Tunisians use our tools and resources to achieve their greatest triumph. Those who wish to assist and are competent to do so can find us easily enough; the Tunisians had little trouble in doing so.

Although we have made great progress in convincing individuals from across the world to join this effort, more must be done before the movement takes the next step towards a worldwide network capable of perpetual engagement against those who are comfortable with tyranny. Whatever effort is required, such a goal is not only possible, but rather unambitious. Those of us who have seen the movement up close have dedicated our lives to it for a reason. I have been working with and covering Anonymous for about six years now, for instance; looking back at my writings, I have found that my predictions, while always enthusiastic, have nonetheless turned out to have been conservative.

The fact is that the technological infrastructure that allows these things has only been in place for a few years, but such phenomena as Wikileaks and Anonymous have already appeared, expanded, and even come into play on the geopolitical scene; others have come about since. This is the future, whether one approves or not, and the failure on the part of governments and media alike to understand and contend with the rapid change now afoot ought to remind everyone concerned why it is that this movement is necessary in the first place.”

Anonymous Hacktivist Resources

In Cyber War, Politic on December 13, 2010 at 4:32 am

As the plutocracy mounts its counter attack I will attempt to keep this information up to date. The Anonymous activist blog that can be found at  http://anonops.blogspot.com .  On 121210, A new strategy called Operation LeakSpin was declared. The new strategy calls for the public to re-publish the leaks in a variety of ways. The fact is some leaks have already been published and the others, the leaks that are not published are in the hands of several newspapers. This makes me think the ‘leaks’ are safe. The Leaks and data contained will see the light of day. The ‘Anonymous’ activists have moved from a successful strategy using LOIC attacks to the new strategy of LeakSpin. In my opinion the new strategy will do nothing to change the situation but waste time. However the blog has good information and videos that support the cause and the activists seem motivated. The Anonymous activists have a Twitter account at http://twitter.com/#!/anonops . I have not seen the FaceBook AnonOps site yet. The YouTube videos are a must see, http://www.youtube.com/user/LetterFromAnon . 121310 – http://www.anonops.eu/ has been shut down. An old irc server list was at http://www.anonops.info has been shut down, 0100utc 121410.

Cyber War Refuels

In Cyber War on December 11, 2010 at 10:49 pm

There has been a lull in the cyber attacks in defense of the free press with the exception of the Netherlands. Reports are in about the hacktivist attack on a Dutch prosecutors web site and Dutch police web site today. A second hacktivist, from Amsterdam was arrested a few hours ago as reports from the Netherlands continue to arrive. The 16 year old man who was arrested a few days ago appears to have confessed under duress. The 16 year old man according to Dutch police admitted he supports a free press and the rights of WikiLeaks. As both sides, the public and the plutocracy begin to stare one and other down as to the fate of the free press, the public has been arming itself. Reports of many thousands of downloads regarding hacking tool kits, such as Low Orbit Ion Canon  and Slowloris amongst many others suggest clearly that the public is arming for a potential fight. A few programmers with the capabilities are building hacktivist tools for the general public and those tool kits are expected to be released soon. The Cyber arms race is on. This activism that is being generated in the fight for free speech knows no bounds. The fascist plutocracy has stepped over the line and the public is pissed about it. The plutocracy has never been more fragile, the plutocrats are in the midst of a complete failure of the capitalist system and they face military defeat in Iraq and Afghanistan. The fascist plutocracy has very few options left, perpetual war has allowed them to steal our basic rights, now they have nearly everything an oligarchy could hope for, then they go after WikiLeaks, the free press. The only option the fascist plutocracy has is a further clampdown on human rights, the free press, free speech, free association and freedom. The war is on. This is a fight for human rights and justice. Its time our current political system evolves or dies. Either way things are going to change.

Cyber War or Not?

In Cyber War on December 11, 2010 at 4:36 am

The latest information on the cyber war against the plutocracy is vague, it is ambiguous and the speculation is rampant of when a cyber attack will be launched. It does appear that many hacktivists are prepared to fight but are looking for some kind of battlefield leadership. By all appearances there is no organized effort but rather a large number disparate  hacktivists waiting for some direction. As the hacktivists prepare for the next battle, it is my opinion that only a sustained effort, an effort that can build in size and momentum over a short period of time (a few days) to overwhelm the enemy will have a chance of victory. Anything half assed will destroy the hacktivists upper hand.  A sustained effort keeps the opponent reeling and without much time to evolve a defense, let alone figure out a counter attack. The plutocrats are now working hard to identify hacktivists from the last conflagrations. The Plutocrats counter attack will come in the form of police raids and jail time for hacktivists. The current hacktivists are desperate for direction and only by acting in concert they can send a clear message. They are better protected when working in concert, this allows for better anonymity and makes problems for the plutocrats legal system to exact revenge.

WikiLeaks Cyber War Week 1

In Cyber War, Politic on December 10, 2010 at 3:48 am

I look forward to sharing my opinion and ideas on politics. I have strong opinions and I will be fearless in articulating them. The recent events aimed at Wiki Leaks has been the motivation for me to create this blog. I look forward to testing the limits of free speech in pointing out the crimes of the plutocracy. Currently WikiLeaks is under a fierce attack from the plutocracy. It was next to impossible to imagine that a cyber war would breakout from the attack on WikiLeaks. The backlash against the plutocracy is building its forces looking for a long term war. The current hacktivist are using DDOS tool kits like LOIC (Low Orbit Ion Canon) widely available. It seems that the plutocracy in its effort to kill the free press did not realize that people can and do have the power to kill Capitalist institutions and government with hacktivism. This is just the beginning of the Cyber War against the plutocracy.  A war which will change everything and a war the plutocracy knows is not winnable. The Internet will have some serious struggles in the years to come. The Internet battle ground is where not only nation states can go to war but so can you.  After its initial attack and embargo against WikiLeaks it is clear that the plutocracy is on the defensive and will be if the cyber war is sustained until total victory. “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.” – Gil Scot Heron
