this will change your IP

Hello. People of the world. We are anonymous. The time has come. An online War has begun between anonymous, the people, and the government of the united states. While SOPA and PIPA may be postponed from congress, this does not guarantee that our internet rights will be upheld. For those unaware, there is still ACTA or the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. You. The public. I have a proposal. Would you like to become part of the greatest internet protest and first official cyber war? Anonymous is in the hands of us all. It is time to take action. Operation global blackout is ongoing and everyone can be a part of it. In the description I have provided everything you will need. Our first target... Facebook... While it is true that facebook has at least 60,000 servers... It is still possible to bring it down... Anonymous needs the help of the people... The people who want to take a stand against the government... The people who want to make a difference... This is what we must do... But first... you must ask yourself, are you truly apart of the anonymous consciousness? Do you fully grasp our ideas and understand what we are. If you do... Then one thing is clear... Together... We the people... We anonymous... Can make a change... We've already crashed CBS... Warner Brothers... And FBI sites... Facebook is our next aim... This will be enough to show them indeed that we are not, playing. Now I will give some general instructions on what to do in order to help crash facebook... First... you will need to download the L-O-I-C or, Low Orbit Ion Cannon from the link provided in the description... Once downloaded... Open the program and type in the URL space http://www.facebook.com and hit lock on... It will tell you facebooks ip address. Because there are different servers, there will be more than one ip address that will pop up on different instances, but they will all be similar. Next you will go to the box that says attack options. Change the threads to 1000. Then you will hit the button that says IMMA CHARGIN MAH LAZER... tHIS WILL NOT WORK if everyone does it at random times... This is why... I would like to conduct this operation at exactly 12 A M on January 28th 2012. A five day preparation... That way... We will have a stronger army built up to fight for our rights... Do not fear... There is no way you can get caught... Hundreds of thousands of us citizens and those of the anonymous idea will all be participating... They cannot take down that large of a group... This is your chance... Our chance... The fate of the internet... Rests in your hands... In owr, hands... Government Of The United States... Leaders of the new world order... You have been warned... Operation Global Blackout Part 2, Facebook. Engaged... We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. They should of Expected us...

YOU CAN CHANGE THE THREADS TO 1000 or 10,000 or more!


We should have expected it. ;D

I wonder if there's a way for them to determine how many participated?

 ;) And I think it's a wonderful English conundrum that "apart" and "a part" have opposite meanings!

Does anyone else find it ironic that the LOIC comes with a copyright notice?

Oooo...it's starting to really heat up!  :o

Time to learn about some 'games' that were popular back in the days of US President Richard M. Nixon and Chicago's Mayor Richard M. Daley.

Hie thee cyber-tails over to Wikipedia, young Squires and learn ye the ways of this World...

Check out
:Black Flag and Agent Provocoteur.

One more reason to study history. It's the same old playbooks being used by the same old players. The only things different are the dates, the audience, and the venues.

As a wise old man (who used to be a wise young man) once said:

I wonder if it's still legal to quote this?
Quote
Won't Get Fooled Again (Lyrics)
Artist(Band):The Who


 
We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again

Change it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fall that's all
But the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotized never lie

Do ya?


There's nothing in the street
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Is now the parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss...

Legal to quote that? Heck no. Everything everywhere is already copyrighted by Oxford and Merriam-Webster. I believe they're still fighting it out though... :P

BTW -- more horror stories about copyright infringement censorship piracy patent lunacy here.

Seems like we need to be a bit more vigilant in looking for more false flags.

Which is why Anonymous needs to learn some strategies if they hope to succeed in their stated goals rather than just being a bur under the saddle of those in power.

Governments and entrenched power bases are designed to handle direct frontal assaults and most 'guerrilla' attacks.

And it's very easy to paint those who "break the law for a good cause" as common criminals. Or worse. Those who watched the movie Patriot Games may remember the scene where Dr. Ryan confronts the IRA spokesman and remarks how that's the problem with guerrilla attacks: "You claim responsibility for one thing...deny it for another. Nobody believes you anymore."

So getting into an arse-kicking contest with porcupine is not the smartest of moves.

If you really want to win, you have to change the thinking of the general public. And before you say it's not possible, look how successfully the people who engineered our current social mores succeeded when they shifted the mindset of America from an anti-establishment to a pro-establishment bias. It took Ronald Regan, a bunch of conservative TV hosts, economic prosperity, and another 15 years (plus one horrendous attack on American soil) to lock it in. But lock it in they did.

And that didn't happen because they kept sending in the cops. They quickly discovered that didn't work too well. Because underneath all of this is a very simple truth that can't really be logically proven. But it remains true just the same:

                   Nothing taken purely by force is ever kept.


Call it karma, 'the spirit of human history', advanced game theory, or whatever you want. The simple truth is: force and violence never create lasting or permanent gains.

So how to win a battle like this one? Educate people. Conquer hearts and minds. Show your opponents up for what they are. Preferably with a bit of humor, since abusive authority always withers in the face of laughter and scorn.


How do you do that? Very simple. You learn how.

Start here: Saul Alinski's Rules for Radicals.

The perfect book on how to fight against this sort of thinking  :

Quote
I don't know what will happen, but this seems the time for the big government people to make their push. Their framework is now in place, and their time to act is coming. If they allow another election they know and so does everyone else they will lose their power. This cannot be allowed to happen in their eyes. They have the food prices were they need them. They have the money supply were they need it. They have all the federal agencies they need in place. They have the schools. They have mainstream media in their pocket. And the biggest of all they have the people who believe in the constitution against the wall, and isolated.

(taken from R. Horn's tongue-in-cheek Countering Rules for Radicals)

Wait a minute. . .

If anybody, any time, any where, can be Anonymous, then who are Anonymous to say it's a fake? :-\ :huh:

As I understand it, if someone claims to be Anonymous, they are. Therefore anybody can speak as Anonymous to announce that Anonymous are going to do something.

So on the FF detection front. It does seem that coordinating an attack by a user-base that's on a global network, would require one to specify a time zone. Not to mention, that it would also help immensely if they had specified a time that actually existed (12:00am does not).

AM = Anti Meridian (before noon)
12:00 = Noon...
Pm = Post Meridian (after noon)

maybe anonymous arent so disorganised? (I know, anyone can be "anonymous")

but it is a mess -
  • it says 12am without saying which timezone
  • it says you wont get in trouble cause "they cannot take down that large of a group" - but they might take YOU down...

Not quite.

The situation is more like this...

You've got a big crowd assembled in a room. They talk and banter and decide on a few things. What they decide on they make public as "Anonymous".

Then, you have a few other fellows over somewhere else that decide to impersonate "Anonymous". Are they? Well. No. They're not. They're impersonating that room full of people that call themselves Anonymous.

It is that room full of people that are Anonymous. You may have some fragmentation and whatnot, but it is the general agreement/zeitgeist of that room that is "Anonymous".
