Wow simply unbelievable. Of course IT personnel have their share to do with regards to security but these guys are going all out on this.

This has gone on wayyyy too long now. The sooner these people are caught, the better..

I for one think it's hillarious. Hopefully this will start moving the Tech World towards proper anti-hacking measures and especially DDoS-protection.

@paulcast the only way to do that is to tag every IP with your social security number or any unique ID

Targeting a DDoS attacker is very hard since they use drone machines to manage the operations. They'd have to go deeper and figure out how to access the trojans that enslave those computers, and who they receive orders from.

God almighty this is ridiculous. Can someone shoot these people already?!

whats next? facebook?

unlikely.. most of the attacks were in DDoS format, doubt they'd have the power to shut them down like that. Cracking into their system though is another story. Just wish the authorities would step it up and deal with the issue and have these guys behind bars soon.

Anyone else hear about the new Anonymous attack on the US Federal Reserve? It is starting today according to the new Youtube video they posted.
