Wired, 27 July 2007

By Ryan Singel July 27, 2007

The following are real quotes from a Fox News in Los Angeles investigation into a hacker group called “Anonymous.”

They are hackers on steroids, treating the web like a real life video game. Sacking websites, invading MySpace accounts and disrupting innocent people’s lives.

They plastered his profile with gay sex pictures. His girlfriend left him.

Truly epic LULZ come from raids and invasions.

You can view the whole segment, complete with a scene of a car bomb, here.

Fox 11 actually stumbled across the /b/ (NSFW) channel of 4chan (NSFW) (update: could be wrong here, looks like Fox was tipped to the /i/ channel of a similar site – 420chan (NSFW)), a image sharing and posting site where every poster posts as Anonymous. Here supremely bored 15-year olds post obscene pictures and stupid photo-shopped images for others to comment on.  They also randomly swarm and try to overwhelm online sites and forums they consider annoying.

These people, according to Fox 11, constitute a notorious and powerful hacking gang who, besides threatening to kill random MySpace users, attempted to ruin the ending of Harry Potter book for children of all ages.  This “news report” is by far the funniest prank anyone on the board has ever pulled off.

LULZ all around.

I wanted to tell you that I always access this blog with my I
phone, when I am on the bus to work, and it is one of the few blogs that I have come across that are watchable on smart phones,
and without even squinting your eyes.

I really like this excellent blog. It’s for me a secret haven where I
always learn something that interests me.
