What's Hawt: A group posing as anonymous has released a Linux based OS, claiming that it is an educational tool that can be used to check the security of websites. However it turns out that the software is laiden with many trojans.
Just what I wanted, a crappy looking OS with trojans!
What can you expect from an anonymous organization?
But... they're helping us fighting teh man! lol
anonymous is simply a bunch of hipsters.
Truly, the first experience I had with Anonymous was the dreaded PSN hack, and for that I obvious dislike them. Time has pasted and I actually have gained a little respect for these guys, sticking it to the man.....
@ MmaFan-Qc: not so much hipster as an unemployed basement-dweller.
I dont think we should blame anonymous for this.
Who the hell was dumb enough to download this?
This is why I can't have faith in humans!
Gotta support those who fight for our freedom against teh evil corporations... (e_e)
You would be surprised at what people will download..
I love how Anon constantly claim that they're only around to provide justice for the people and yet they continue to just make things worse.
"A group posing as anonymous" "Anonymous also repeatedly tweeted to users, telling them not to install the software because of the present dangers, and stated that whoever published the OS was not affiliated with the clan." Do you even bother reading the articles?
just because the person and/or small group of individuals running the twitter account says they aren't affiliated with anonymous, doesn't mean that the people who created the OS aren't part of anonymous. anyone can be part of the group by simply stating they are, so... if they said that they're anonymous, then, well... they're part of anonymous no matter how many protestations are made on twitter.
Silly Core. Everyone knows kids these days aren't intelligent enough to know how to read.
so basically it's conveniently only anonymous when they do something good , and when it's crap it's not them ? Again how convenient ...
@Corepred4 Flawed logic right there, cos you know, Anon doesn't have and structure, so, anyone can be anonymous... yes, even those who released this pos filled with trojans :P
Well, this isn't Anonymous first off. And secondly I do agree with you that they tend to make things worse against their "goal" most of the time.
This is why a hive system where everyone can just become a member by claim is a fail. Time to start admitting you have a hierarchy, Anon.
Well, they actually do somewhat. There is a "main" group that is more important. But overall it still is a bit disorganized looking in from the outside.
I know but they still won't admit they have a hierarchy which is ironic. lol!
you guys do know anonymous said this is fake
Lol, if Anon said it then it MUST be true.
you do know that they spawned from 4chan, which is notoriously known for being troll central...
Or child sex offenders in /b
Sort of a misleading title since it isn't exactly Anonymous... Either way its not surprising that some hackers are trying to piggyback off the attention Anonymous is getting.
Not really. That is the name of the software lol. If it were anonymous releases Anonymous-OS...well that's a different story.
what no free candy?
fake release to lure in dumbasses maybe. hope it comes with a failbot 5000.
Even if some one installed it how would it hurt them... not many people with no computer smarts would use a linux based os as an main.
