The Internet is On FYRE Right Now – It’s not a good time to be sifting through anything that could open you up to one of those bad ass gateways. you only hope and stay away from hot spots like memes.
One of the more interesting teams operating with Anonymous is #TeamGhostShell. They are usually the team behind the more malicious attacks that target governments and corporations. Their latest operation, MidasBank, has one target clearly in its sites – Wall Street.
#TeamGhostShell has so far released around 50,000 accounts from IT personnel who work on Wall Street. The accounts are from current, past and rejected people who have ties with Wall Street. The information was released as the first batch of MidasBank, a place where they will leak all the information they have on the financial sector. In their own words:
GhostShell has been leaking left and right all kinds of targets, well we’re here to bring some sort of order to it, which is why this district will function solely to provide leaks from an economical point of view, institutional and educational, but primary, it will focus on the financial aspect of things.
With that being said, what better target to pick as a first release, than the place that puts all markets to shame in the world. Wall Street.
We won’t link to the dump for obvious reasons, but the leak looks legitimate. There are thousands upon thousands of email addresses, passwords, full names and home addresses for people who may or may not work on Wall Street.
Interestingly enough, MidasBank withheld 3000 of the resumes that were part of the leaks. Why? They are going to sell them on the black market. It’s no surprise that some of the leaked information is sold, but to see a group freely admitting to it in the release is new to me.
This year has already been crazy on the Anonymous front. I have a feeling that they’re just getting started. As we head into the election months, expect something crazy from them. I know that Anonymous isn’t a fan of either candidate and they’re going to try something. What exactly? I don’t know, but we’ll let you know once we do.
This is something that we could have never predicted, and to be honest we just really don’t understand. Why are they hacking into a womens forum and making rape jokes ?
That’s absolutely totally illogical. eitherway this is not going to be ignored by the women in their lives. Women have a silent way of responding to social pressure within their own camp. no one needs to say anything, but things happen. and Men Know That.
This is why we wonder why they did this knowing that the women who know who they are will eventually become disenchanted with them like farts. then said women, like women; will spray the room for a fresh perspective.
not really hacking but troll of the year nominee def.
For about 12 hours now, feminism.org has been the playground of hackers who’ve filled the site with sexist alleged jokes about horse blow jobs, rape, and more.
Fake headlines include: “men are superior get over it!!!!” and “how to get raped 1 to 1.” According to a lengthy discussion thread on Reddit, hackers from the 4chan community are behind it.
But first, wait, what is feminism.org? Well, it’s nothing really. According to the Wayback Archive (which features screengrabs of websites on different dates), the site was “under construction” in 2011, but otherwise hasn’t been an active website in about ten years. So yes, it’s an attack on feminism, but it’s not an attack on an actual functioning organization.
Take a look at some screenshots of the page from the past few hours:
The photo is of Gabe Newell, the founder of a video game company called Valve. Posting his photo is a popular joke among 4chan users.
This is what the Google search for feminism.org looks like.
Here are fake course descriptions offered by the “Feminist Psychology Institute.”
And this is another screenshot of the page at one point during the hack.
So it’s basically another example of subpar misogynistic rape-based humor to add to this summer’s archives. At least it’s on a site no one’s looked at in a decade anyway — weak humor and weak hacking.
Men Remember, That Women Remember; and Hacking to Make Rape Jokes is Very Slutty Behaviour. But then you already know that don’tcha guys.
