I wonder why so much effort is going into investigating Anonymous, while none seems to be going into investigating the equally criminal DDOS attacks on Wikileaks.
How can you investigate an alleged crime against a criminal enterprise.
That's like Italian police investigating a theft from Mafia headquarters of items the Mafia stole.
Wikileaks had its servers at Pirate Bay -- you know them -- the home of pirated software.
The reason why the FBI is investigating is because Anonymous and its supporters damaged regular citizens livelihoods, affected banking, commerce, and purposely tried to take down networks which people use to work on the internet.
I am really enjoying the fact that police are literally breaking down doors serving search warrants on Wikileak supporters who used LOIC.
6am, door busted down (NOT KIDDING), "FBI FBI FBI POLICE FBI GET YOUR ARMS UP AND DONT MOVE THEM. WALK DOWNSTAIRS RIGHT NOW. DO NOT MOVE YOUR HANDS." --- TWO *REAL* GUNS POINTED AT ME.
me in 1 cop car, gf in other car.
took 3.5 hrs, all electronic devices taken including 3 computers. said nearly nothing. finally left.
The FBI yesterday reminded the public that "facilitating or conducting a DDoS attack is illegal, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, as well as exposing participants to significant civil liability."
I sincerely hope no one here gets caught up in this dragnet.
