UK Spooks Revealed As Cyber Criminals
« on: February 05, 2014, 09:15:19 pm »
In a suprising twist of the story behind the anonymous attacks it looks like no one comes away looking clean

In recent years we've learned that the FBI has no problem with using informants to organise, encourage, and assist computer hacking at a global level, and now it seems GCHQ has been in on the double-standards game too: launching Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against chat servers hosted by Anonymous in 2010/2011 in order to scare off supporters of the movement.

Under the banner JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group), agents also attempted to infiltrate and disband political dissidents that may have only been loosely connected to the Anonymous movement, at times spreading malware in chatrooms in order to identify and arrest internet users.

These disturbing revelations have only come to light, as you may have guessed, through Edward Snowden's collection of classified NSA documents.

I have to say this kind of state sponsored criminality is likely to simply encourage others to launch such attacks as the idea of mirroring the actions of a govt that feels its immune to following the law of the land must be very tempting for some hot headed folks.

Its my view hes scared of the internet alright and simply because hes realised that those young students he ordered the police to abuse are going to spend a lot of time getting their own back on the govt, he should be scared.

I noted also the other day a story from the bbc mentioning that the Govt  have stockpiled 10, 000 plastic bullets, when they have never been allowed to be used In the UK mainland before you have to ask what he thinks the PM job is.
