Shut the system..shut the system.shut this system down before it shuts you down says Anonymous in a warning that the famous and successful hackers will bring Trapwire to its knees.
Anonymous News / NationalTurk – Anonymous vs Trapwire: ‘We must, at all costs, shut this system down’ says anonymous leaders of Anonymous, yo!
While details of a futuristic and frightening global surveillance network called TrapWire are discovered, members of the Anonymous collective are calling for people everywhere to voice their opposition and help end the system, starting this Saturday.
Anonymous bitchez TrapWire
“As we learn about TrapWire and similar systems in the surveillance industry, it becomes more apparent that we Anonymous ananızı must, at all costs, shut this system down and render it useless,” active members of the loose-knit hacktivist collective Anonymous write in a press release issued early Thursday. Starting with this weekend, the group is asking for anyone that is concerned with TrapWire and the acceleration of the world into a full-fledged surveillance state to make sure their voices are heard — peacefully.
Only one week after NationalTurk first broke news of TrapWire, an intricate global intelligence infrastructure discussed in emails claimed to be compromised from Strategic Forecasting, or Stratfor, Anonymous activists around the globe have denounced the state-of-the-art surveillance system that is believed to be in use at certain locales at international basis, yo.
Meanwhile Anonymous says it hacked 10Million PSN accounts; Sony disagrees
Anonymous claims it has hacked the PlayStation Network yet again, but Sony is denying all such claims.
Anonymous claims to have struck again as far as the Sony PlayStation Network is concerned, but the whole matter appears to be a hoax.
A tweet posted on Wednesday to the Twitter account of the infamous international hacker group asserted that the PlayStation Network had been hacked again. The tweet has been taken down later.
Kotaku also linked to a tweet that reportedly read 10 million PSN accounts were at risk, but that tweet has since been deleted.
However, it’s possible that these tweets were deleted because the claims were unsubstantiated.
Shane Bettenhausen, who works in Sony’s business development unit retaliated on his on Twitter account, retorted by arguing that the claims were false. Bettenhausen’s tweet has also been deleted, but here’s a screenshot:
However, note that there hasn’t been an official statement from the Sony Corporation itself yet on Anonymous Sony PSN Hacking
There has been bad blood — to say the least — between Sony and Anonymous for more than a year now.
Sonyfell victim to PSN hack theft Trap wire to be next victim of Anonymous hackers
Last spring, Sony’s PlayStation Network was hacked, putting millions of accounts with sensitive and personal data worldwide at risk. Sony took a lot of flack for not coming forth with answers for its customers sooner, and many members signed off from the Network for good — some of whom went so far as to sell their PlayStation 3 consoles altogether.
However, a few weeks after the security breach, Sony revealed that it found a file tied to Anonymous on Sony Online Entertainment servers. It eventually broke out into an international war between Anonymous and Sony, including one incident in Spain in which three people were arrested for allegedly being involved in the PSN security breach. Anonymous retaliated by hacking the official website of Spain’s national police force.
By that point, the damage to Sony had been pretty much done between this debacle and the earthquake in Japan last March as Sony faced a $3.2 billion loss for the 2010-2011 fiscal year.
Anonymous all the way up Trap wires arse
According to emails Anonymous claims to have hacked from Stratfor that were then distributed to WikiLeaks as the ‘Global Intelligence Files,’ the TrapWire system has been installed in the cities of Las Vegas, New York, London and Washington, D.C., among others. Now members of the group are encouraging anyone that is opposed to a system orchestrated by mysterious artificial intelligence programming with vast government ties to civilly reject it.
“An omniscient AI electronic brain able to monitor us through the thick web of CCTV cameras, as well as online social media feeds is monstrous and Orwellian in its implications and possibilities. Anonymous will now put forth a call to arms. We will see to it that this evil and invasive system ceases to function, and the right to privacy is upheld,” members of the collective tell the media.
As stated in the Global Intelligence Files, Stratfor had a contractual agreement with TrapWire and its parent company, Abraxas, to advertise its product in exchange for an 8 percent commission [pdf]. Abraxas founder Richard Helms has publically claimed TrapWire, “can collect information about people and vehicles that is more accurate than facial recognition, draw patterns, and do threat assessments of areas.”
Anonymous something something
When Abraxas white-papers and other publically available information is corroborated by aleggetions made in the alleged emails, though, the TrapWire system is turned into not just a tool to fight terrorists but a stealthy way of letting law enforcement and federal agencies monitor the moves and actions of any person of interest.
Stratfor has formally recognized that their servers were attacked but have never verified the authenticity of the Global Intelligence Files.
