OpMaldives : Anonymous Hackers Want To Penetrate More Maldives Government Websites

On December 20, Anonymous published a video where they explained why they leaked more than 200,000 individuals ID Card numbers. They stated that this was done to show how insecure the Government Authorities are.They added that they will continue to penetrate into government websites to help in improving the security.These websites will not be damaged permanently and they will not harm the infrastructure of Maldives. Below is the video posted on YouTube along with the transcript.
"In a recent press release by Maldives Police, they have singled out Anonymous Maldives as a threat to "citizens of the Maldives".
We have exposed more than a 200,000 thousand National ID Card details on our site "maldives.anonymous.lv" on December 2013. This was done in the interest of making the citizens of the Maldives aware that how insecure our Government Authorities are. We want to make it clear that this was done in no way to threaten any citizens rights. We do not wish to & will never terrorize our nation.
We have found traitors working in the Authorities who claims they are "IT/Security Experts". We call on the Election Comission to fire these traitors and secure our personal information. We will continue to penetrate into Government Websites just to help them improve their security. Sites we penetrate will not be permenantly damaged, nor we will harm the infrastructure of Maldives. We have simply shown how insecure our government is.
Police Authorities claimed that they have taken down our mirror site "maldives.anonymous.lv", but until now we still have our domain and it was never seized and cannot be. Our current mirror is "press.anonymous.lv" as a result of Government censoring our previous mirror "maldives.anonymous.lv". If you cut down one Anon, ten more will join us purely out of anger at your trampling of dissent.
Anonymous does not have leaders. We are not a group, we are not an organization. We are just an idea. We will respond to those who seek to threaten us, even if it's the Government. We understand that our participants have been concerned about the lies spread by Maldives Police Service in their press statement on 21st October 2013.
We are Anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect us!

A Christmas Message From Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden, known all over the world today for disclosing secret documents of the NSA made a video on the occasion for Christmas where he talked about privacy. Below is the video and transcript. The video has been deleted on several occasion for copyright breach but we managed to get a copy of it on YouTube.

"Hi. A Merry Christmas.
I'm honored to have a chance to speak with you and your family this year.
Recently, we learned that our governments, working in concert, have created a system of worldwide mass surveillance, watching everything we do.
Great Britain's George Orwell warned us of the danger of this kind of information.
The types of collection in the book - microphones and video cameras, TVs that watch us - are nothing compared to what we have available today.
We have sensors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go.
Think about what this means for the privacy of the average person.
A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all.
They'll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves; an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought - and that's a problem, because privacy matters.
Privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be.
The conversation occurring today will determine the amount of trust we can place, both in the technology that surrounds us, and the government that regulates it.
Together, we can find a better balance.

Anonymous Video Statement Regarding Situation In Central African Republic

On 11 December 2013, Anonymous published a video on YouTube in which they talked about the situation regarding Central African Republic.In the video, Anonymous said "We've taken note that an operation would not help this location, nor the taking down/defacement of government websites....We will do everything in our ability to give the people in the Central African Republic, or C.A.R CAR for short, every necessity. " Below is the video and the full transcript.

"Citizens of the globe, we are anonymous. We bring you this urgent message concerning the events in the Central African Republic to light.
We've taken note that an operation would not help this location, nor the taking down/defacement of government websites.
This battleground of a country is not in the brink of chaos, this country has now fallen into chaos.
We will do everything in our ability to give the people in the Central African Republic, or C.A.R CAR for short, every necessity. Water, food, aid supplies is scarce and is being a high necessity to the people.
As of right now, the location is overrun by bloodshed and war, French troops and possible US military soldiers have been deployed and dispatched in the area. We fear these, soldiers are not here to make way for a hopeful path for the people in the Republic. They are there for the sake of oil, minerals and other resources the country is rich on.
Photos and videos are not taken lightly around these parts and the people behind these heinous attacks will make pleasure to make these events, these battles, go unnoticed.
We are doing this for the sake of the people, we could care less about the politics behind it. When innocent, peaceful people get hurt, beaten, abused and tortured..
We act.
Anonymous, is watching.
We are anonymous
We are legion
We never forgive
We never forget

This event is highly under-reported, and anonymous, will not let this go by unnoticed."

706 Domains Seized By International Law Enforcement Agencies

10 foreign law enforcement agencies teamed with the  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) to seize domain names that were illegally selling counterfeit merchandise online. A total of 706 domain names were seized. Those were set up to dupe customers into buying counterfeit goods as part of the holiday shopping season. 297 domain names were seized by US authorities, 393 by European authorities and 16 sites were taken down by Hong Kong Customs.
ICE Acting Director John Sandweg said, "Working with our international partners on operations like this shows the true global impact of IP crime,".. "Counterfeiters take advantage of the holiday season and sell cheap fakes to unsuspecting consumers everywhere. Consumers need to protect themselves, their families, and their personal financial information from the criminal networks operating these bogus sites."
Rob Wainwright, director of Europol said, "This operation is another good example of how transatlantic law enforcement cooperation works. It sends a signal to criminals that they should not feel safe anywhere,".."Unfortunately the economic downturn has meant that disposable income has gone down, which may tempt more people to buy products for prices that are too good to be true. Consumers should realize that, by buying these products, they risk supporting organized crime."

The domain names seized are now in the custody of the respective governments who took part in these operations. Visitors trying to visit these websites will find a banner which notifies them about the seizure.

Facebook Sues Celebrity Porn Scams Spammer

Christopher Peter Tarquini from Malton, New Jersey has been using self designed software scripts to post deceptive messages,images and links on Facebook user's page. These links direct users to non Facebook marketing websites where Peter earned commissions.
The lawsuits states: "Defendant Christopher Peter Tarquini is a recidivist spammer and abuser of Facebook's services," ... "Tarquini orchestrated and participated in an elaborate scheme that inundated Facebook users with messages purporting to link to pornographic images of celebrities. The messages were deceptive. When Facebook users clicked on the messages, the messages (and suggestive images associates with those messages) were automatically shared with the users' Facebook friends, and the browsers of the users who clicked on the messages were redirected to marketing websites that paid Tarquini and his associates a commission for the referral traffic. In short, Facebook users who clicked on Tarquini's deceptive messages immediately, and without their knowledge or consent, became unknowing participants in and victims of Tarquini's scam."
Facebook claims that it sent Peter a "cease-and-desist" letter in March and he replied back by saying he had indeed created this software script called "Jacked" .Facebook also claims that it has spent a large sum of money, $5000, to track down the spammer.

Massive Amount of Bitcoins Stolen From An Australian Website

An Australian Bitcoin wallet website (inputs.io) was unable to pay a number of users after the service was hacked last Thursday.A total amount of $1.1 million was stolen from the website.The entrepreneur did not disclosed his real identity because he was worried about his safety.When going on the website, there was a message posted by the owner himself which goes as follows,
"Two hacks totalling about 4100 BTC have left Inputs.io unable to pay all user balances. The attacker compromised the hosting account through compromising email accounts (some very old, and without phone numbers attached, so it was easy to reset). The attacker was able to bypass 2FA due to a flaw on the server host side.
Database access was also obtained, however passwords are securely stored and are hashed on the client. Bitcoin backend code were transferred to 10;15Hd@mastersearching.com:mercedes49@ (most likely another compromised server).
What about my coins there? If you stored more than 1 BTC, send an email to support@inputs.io with a Bitcoin address (preferably, an offline, open source light/SPV wallet like Multibit or Electrum). Use the same email you're using on Inputs. Please don't store Bitcoins on an internet connected device, regardless of it is your own or a service's.
I know this doesn't mean much, but I'm sorry, and saying that I'm very sad that this happened is an understatement.
