In a chat with Raw Story, members of Anonymous on the #OpIran server said they were leading the charge because they want Iranians to know they're not alone in their struggle against the regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
...Apart from the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the hackers said they were targeting servers containing information about the Kahrizak detention center in Iran, a notorious site human rights campaigners have raised alarms about for years.Anonymous released a video extolling their fight for the human rights work they're doing for the Iranian people:
It is weird that this should come up now. For the past week I have been getting a message on my Computer (Not Laptop); black background, 3" by 4" telling someone; ACCESS DENIED!!!! Now is someone tying to take over my computer?? Or have I just happened to be in an area where they want to be? Dell computers with all the software I have downloaded for security is finally showing me it's working... Perhaps "Anonymous" is trying to get into Mircosoft / Windows Vista to take control? I don't know but my friend who fixes and has major experience in computer technology said that it definately sounds like a 'Hacker' to her. Now, you ask why me? There could be many people experiencing this and not sure what it is. As far as I'm concerned, this takes the level of WAR to a whole new plane. Cyberspace VS Government via their Networks!!!
Sounds very Scary!!! From: LYNN SHEDLER
Hi Lynn, try running your machine for an hour or more, then shut down any app that would access the internet ie. browser, email, messenger and such, but leave your connection turned on. Then ctrl+alt+del, when your Task Manager Window pops up click the networking tab and see if there is any traffic. With all else shut down, you should have no more than 1% traffic. The reason I tell you this is that you may have already been hacked. Any problems, message me. There are other things you can do, but more complicated. I am curious to know why you use all CAPS in your name.
Don't know about the caps - a bad habit, I suppose. So you think some one is already in!!! How did they get past all the security and anti - virus programs.
I really am greatful for the help - I'm worried now. I'll try what you wrote and get back to you.... O.K. Thank you.
There was a zero to 2% activity. It fluctuated from zero to 2%; I mean - is that bad? Computer was on but screen turned off for one hour and 15 min.s.
There was no programes running except Solitaire and when I went Ctrl; Alt; Delete the above numbers are what I got...
Solitaire was just sitting there.
I'll keep watching it. Thanks again. And.... a person does learn something new 'everyday'!!!!!
I just did.
Could be an aberration or a genuine misallocation of resources. Perhaps this was a target of opportunity; not a preferred one but nonetheless a target. Their next move on the cyber chessboard is crucial.
Also consider that perhaps they have been infiltrated and compromised. Time will tell.
Listen to the words of their song. They sound very familiar to me - the voices I mean, however I can't put my finger on it - but I will. The song sounds like they mean business anyway. Also, 1 in 4 F.B.I. agents is an informant? How can someone be an Agent & an Informant at the same time. That is a double standard, and a No Win One. The I.R.A. were infiltrated and look what happened to them.
Perhaps your right that time will tell.
Beware of announcements that "claim" that Anonymous is: "It's Official, "Anonymous" Hackers are Now Controlled Opposition" or that they are cy-ops, etc.
Anonymous is "anonymous" thus anyone can claim "they are them" and or that "so n so is them"
The problem is "them" is anonymous.... and no one truly knows who is "Anonymous".
Heck I can writ a post, do an action, or make a comment and claim "I am (the) Anonymous"
I don't believe what is being claimed to by #OpIran is factually from Anonymous, no one knows, or that the claims they are "western cy-ops" is true or not.
I would take it all with a grain of salt. Be aware, use the info, but be not so quick to point & claim.
Anonymous activists are doing revolutionary things all over these days, I wouldn't be so quick to call the anon group a cy-ops or an opposition controlled group.
In fact its a slippery slope to label them cy-ops or claim its official they are now controlled opposition.
