Robin Anonymous Hood Hoax [Update]


Spiegel Online: “Die Online-Guerilla Anonymous hat offenbar Tausende Kreditkartendaten von Kunden der US-Sicherheitsberatungsfirma Stratfor gestohlen. Sie will eine Million Dollar als Weihnachtsspenden umverteilen. Außerdem soll der mutmaßliche WikiLeaks-Informant Manning in einem schicken Restaurant essen dürfen. (…) Doch für Stratfor könnte die Aktion ein unangenehmes Nachspiel haben – die Daten waren laut Anonymous leicht zugänglich, weil sie nicht verschlüsselt waren. “Nicht mehr so geheim und privat?”, verspottet Anonymous die Sicherheitsagentur in ihrem Schreiben.”

Bruhahahaha. Dann schauen wir mal auf die Fakten (Das kommt davon, Spiegel Online, wenn man keine Links auf die Quellen setzt – ihr werdet es nie lernen):

Emergency Christmas Anonymous Press Release


Stratfor is an open source intelligence agency, publishing daily reports on data collected from the open internet. Hackers claiming to be Anonymous have distorted this truth in order to further their hidden agenda, and some Anons have taken the bait.

The leaked client list represents subscribers to a daily publication which is the primary service of Stratfor. Stratfor analysts are widely considered to be extremely unbiased. Anonymous does not attack media sources. In this excerpt from Time, there is a brief description of how Stratfor analysts uncovered a possible US backed coup in Iraq preceding the US invasion.

“In the past month Stratfor has drawn attention to a carefully assembled open-source report that asserted that last month’s attack on Iraq wasn’t intended just to punish Saddam Hussein for blowing off U.N. weapons inspectors. By sorting through thousands of pieces of publicly available data–from Middle East newspapers to Iraqi-dissident news–Stratfor analysts developed a theory that the attacks were actually designed to mask a failed U.S.-backed coup. In two striking, contrarian intelligence briefs released on the Internet on Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, Stratfor argued that Saddam’s lightning restructuring of the Iraqi military, followed by executions of the army’s Third Corps commanders, was evidence that the coup had been suppressed. Predictably, U.S. officials said the report was wrong.”

Stratfor has been purposefully misrepresented by these so-called Anons and portrayed in false light as a company which engages in activity similar to HBGary. Sabu and his crew are nothing more than opportunistic attention whores who are possibly agent provocateurs. As a media source, Stratfor’s work is protected by the freedom of press, a principle which Anonymous values greatly.

This hack is most definitely not the work of Anonymous.

We are Anonymous
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us

Aus dem Heise-Forum: “…wenn man sich in den Anonymous IRCs umschaut begruesst die Mehrheit dort diesen Hack. Und genau das macht es zu einer Anonymous-Aktion, auch wenn es irgendwelchen angepissten Wichtigtuern nicht passt ;)”
