AntiSec pledges additional attacks
Hackers operating under the AntiSec banner have pledged to launch a slew of cyber attacks over the holiday weekend in an act of solidarity with WikiLeaks suspect Pfc. Bradley Manning and other prisoners.
"Did Bradley Manning get his fancy LulzXmas dinner yet? Still trying to lock him up for life? Still think we're just joking around? That's OK. The time for talk is over," AntiSec wrote in an online communiqué.
"On New Years Eve, we will be launching our contributions to project mayhem by attacking multiple law enforcement targets from coast to coast. That's right: once again we bout to ride on the po po. Candiez, pr0n and cookies for LulzXmas."
Following up on its recent attack against Stratfor, a US-based security think tank, the group also said it was posting the full 75,000 names, addresses, CCs and md5 hashed passwords of every paying customer - in addition to dumping ~860,000 usernames, email addresses and md5 hashed passwords for all registered users.
"We almost have sympathy for those poor DHS employees and Australian billionaires who had their bank accounts looted by the lulz. But what did you expect? All our lives we have been robbed blindly and brutalized by corrupted politicians, establishmentarians and government agencies sex shops, and now it's time to take it back.
"We call upon all allied battleships, all armies from darkness, to use and abuse these password lists and credit card information to wreak unholy havok upon the systems and personal email accounts of these rich and powerful oppressors. Kill, kitties, kill and burn them down... peacefully," the group added.
It should be noted that AntiSec has executed a number of successful operations against various law enforcement entities and corporations, including ManTech, IRC Federal, Booz Allen Hamilton, dozens of Texas police departments and Arizona law enforcement officials.
