    Brit cops first victims as hackers unite against governments

    Brit cops first victims as hackers unite against governments



    San Francisco - An alliance of the world's two most notorious hacker groups, LulzSec and Anonymous, claimed Monday that it took down the website of Britain's Serious Organized Crime Agency (SOCA).

    The high profile cyber-attack came just a day after the groups announced on Twitter that they were launching Operation Anti-Security to target government websites across the world to protest attempts to regulate the internet and curtail the privacy of net users.

    Within 24 hours the group demonstrated its prowess when LulzSec tweeted that the SOCA Web site was offline "in the name of #AntiSec" and warned that worse was to come.

    The group said it executed a distributed denial of service attack - a well-known method of taking down websites. DDOS attacks use rings of hijacked computers to overwhelm web servers.//DPA

    I wouldn't call that hacking.
    Hacking is illegally accessing a computer and reading the data

    Fucking geeks, think they're fighting the system by taking down a website for a few hours. Big deal. And anyway, these San Fran poofters should be attacking their own governments sinister agencies. The CIA and DEA make SOCA look like the friendly village bobby.

    This sort of nonsense will bring exactly what they don't want - greater regulation (censorship, lawsuits, criminalizing free speech, etc.).

    Teen charged over global hacking probe


    Teen charged over global hacking probe | The Sun |News A TEENAGER suspected of global computer hacking has been charged with carrying out an attack on the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency.

    Ryan Cleary, 19, is also accused of launching attacks on the websites of music bodies the British Phonographic Industry and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.
    He will appear in custody at City of Westminster Magistrates Court tomorrow charged with a total of five offences under the Criminal Law and Computer Misuse Acts, Scotland Yard said.
    Cleary was arrested at his family's home in South Beech Avenue, Wickford,Essex, yesterday as part of a Scotland Yard and FBI probe into LulzSec, a group which has claimed responsibility for hack attacks on Sony, Nintendo, the US Senate and the CIA.

    Later, addressing law enforcement "clowns," the group insisted Cleary was a scapegoat.
    They said he is NOT a member and they merely use his computer server to house a legitimate chatroom.
