    Default Wikileaks DDOS attacks to start on VISA now

    SchminkyPinkyBangBang

    A member of the Anonymous group of hackers, which has been targeting firms it sees as being anti-Wikileaks has said the campaign is not over.

    Speaking on the BBC's Today programme, Coldblood said that "more and more people are downloading the voluntary botnet tool".

    This signs them up to a so-called botnet, an army of machines that can then launch attacks.

    Overnight Visa became the latest victim.
    Our first proper cyber war.

    I wonder how clever this botnet is, and how clever they have been about distributing it. Also, those that download it would have a hard time proving it was by accident.

    I predict a virus outbreak.

    I don't understand the virus connection..

    The botnet software could be distributed using a virus. Wider coverage.

    They want volunteers, not hapless victims.

    Next nothing.

    It wouldn't do anything for their cause to release a virus.

    Stop making sh!t up.

    Most viruses (Trojans etc) are instigated by online crooks and governments. It’s governments who are targeting Wikileaks computers, and it’s governments who instigated viruses into Iran to attack the nuclear industry software. (passed on by USB sticks)

    Government and crooks are one of the same.

    Check out where Wikileaks is Daily-Mail-alleged to be hosting its data currently (apart from on hard drives and USB sticks worldwide)





    Sexy place to work or what!

    WikiLeaks bunker: Julian Assange's subterranean Bond villain den | Mail Online


    It would have been a great place to go on the run, especially re the spying angle.
