    Anonymous issues a warning over the US Protect IP Act
    Calls on people to defend internet freedom

    HACKTIVIST GROUP Anonymous has issued a warning to US lawmakers and media content rights holders over the introduction of the Protect IP Act.
    The group, which is widely believed to have been responsible for the initial round of attacks on Sony's networks, issued a press release condeming the Protect IP Act and calling on internet users to fight for their online freedom.
    The Protect IP Act gives US authorities a number of new powers, such as the legal rights to seize domain names, block web sites at the ISP level, censor search engines and freeze assets.

          NATO members warned over Anonymous threat

          NATO leaders have been warned that the Anonymous "hacktivist" collective might have the capability to threaten member states' security.

          A report for the alliance by Lord Jopling, UK general rapporteur and Tory peer, provides a general (mostly factual) overview of the changing nature of the internet.

          One key section deals with the use of social media tools to exchange information by people on the ground during the ongoing Arab Spring protests; another deals with the ongoing WikiLeaks affair and its fallout – and also covers the hack by Anonymous in solidarity with the whistle-blowing site.


          Anonymous members will be 'persecuted', NATO report says

          A draft report to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly has warned that the loose hacktivist collective Anonymous is becoming “more sophisticated” and says measures will be taken to “persecute” its members.

          The report found by Thinq was written by General Rapporteur Lord Jopling and covers national security in the information age.

          One section covers hactivism, where Anonymous is specifically named. The loose group was responsible for attacks on sites such as Mastercard and Paypal, after they withdrew their services from whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks.

            Anonymous Declares Cyberwar Against 'the System'

            On Tuesday, someone claiming to speak for the underground group Anonymous released a video declaration of war against "the system."

            The YouTube manifesto is a call to everyone in the online world to get off the couch, pick up their cell phones and laptops and join a revolt against governments and corporations that are intent upon stifling free speech online.

            "It's time to hack the planet. It's time to turn the tables on the powers that be and show them that we have had enough," a narrator declares in a computer-generated voice used to mask his or her identity.

            "This is our challenge," the narrator continues:

              Some very odd words here from anonymous

              'Anonymous' Warns NATO: Do Not Mess With Us
              Days after the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) named hacker coalition 'Anonymous' as an enemy among the likes of Al Qaeda and North Korea, the hackers issued a warning to the global military alliance.

              "Do not make the mistake of challenging Anonymous. Do not make the mistake of believing you can behead a headless snake. If you slice off one head of Hydra, ten more heads will grow in its place. If you cut down one Anon, ten more will join us purely out of anger at your trampling of dissent," Anonymous said in a statement. Scroll down for the video message.

              They also end their messages strangely

              We Are Anonymous. We Are Legion. We Do Not Forgive. We Do Not Forget. Expect Us.
