Through a YouTube video, Anonymous has launched their new operation known as #Operation Rohingya. The video shows how the ethnic Rohingya people of Myanmar Burma in Southeast Asia are about to be massacred.The video has been provided along with the transcript below.
Transcript Greetings Citizens of the World. It is vital the information we are going to share with you is made viral as quickly as possible. The ethnic Rohingya people of Myanmar Burma in Southeast Asia are about to be massacred. Barbarous acts are being carried out by Neo-Nazi racist groups like the Rakhine Nationalities Development Party, Arakan Liberation Army, NaSaKa border police and 969 monks led by Monk Wirathu, the self proclaimed Bin Laden of Buddhism. The Government of Myanmar is orchestrating these crimes. The persecution of the Rohingya people is severe. The Burmese junta considers them to be sub-human and denies them almost all basic human rights. They are subject to torture, gang rape, starvation, slave labor, and forced to reside in the most dire camps in the world - some call these refugee camps but they are actually concentration camps. Over the past few months, thousands of Rohingya have been encouraged onto boats and sent out to sea with not enough food or fuel, and left there to die. Many boats were attacked and sunk, with women and children on board. Already the violence in Burma has spread beyond the Rohingya to include all Muslims, with 'warm ups' to the anticipated massacre taking place against Burmese Muslims in Meiktila, Naypyidaw and Yangon. Dead and burning bodies, including children, are now lying in the streets. While the United States claims to defend human rights, their record clearly reflects a government that will only intercede when their business interests are threatened. While politicians occasionally pay lip service to the horrific conditions in Myanmar no action is ever taken. The only people neglecting the situation in Myanmar worse than the U.S. are the press who consistently ignored these atrocities or reported them as 'ethnic clashes'. We consider the media to be complicit in concealing them from the rest of the world. The Rohingya have been told to expect a third massacre starting the last week in March. Rakhine have declared they will leave no Rohingya left on the land, just a few left as exhibits for the museum. The acts of genocide being committed against the Rohingya people must no longer be ignored. We call on the Anonymous collective to stand with those for whom no one else will stand. We call on Anonymous and all supporters of human rights to stand against this great injustice, to give the Rohingya a voice, before they are completely eliminated.
Operation Rohingya engaged. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Tyrants of the world, expect us!

time,he leaked the administrators credential through a pastebin
document.In the same document,he gave an explanation about the system
,the administrators and also had a special part in this paragraph for
the main super admin which goes as follows,: " I must say without you
it would have been difficult for us to penetrate into the system and
your common password "111111" was like a magical stick for us. "
The Indian hacker also added the reason of this hack,'Pakistan's Support to Terrorism ' and the last paragraph of the document goes as follows,:
is a country which is currently supporting terrorist activities through
ISI, and if they regret Pakistan army and Ministry of Defense mail
server backups are enough to proof how closely the are related to

a very tricky way. The same proxy was used to get inside the network.

It uses a local ip pool of 192.168.70.* for managing
the webserver. All websites are exactly identical with same database

Australia is now part of the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime.Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus said "The internet makes it easy for criminals to operate from abroad, especially from those countries where regulations and enforcement arrangements are weaker,". "These powers will allow Australian law enforcement agencies to rapidly obtain data about communications relevant to cyber-crimes from partner agencies around the world." “The convention will also ensure vital evidence is not lost before a mutual assistance request can be completed.”
He also said that Australia will get the help of other police agencies and this would “make it easier for police to track down cyber criminals around the world”.
Nicholas Webber,a 21 year old British hacker was jailed for 5 years for running a hacker forum.He was invited to assist an IT class in jail.What could be expected when a hacker gets access to a computer? He hacked into the jail's computer system from inside.His action has caused a 'major panic' but until now,its not clear to what he got access.Michael Fox,the computer teacher,who was employed by the Kensington and Chelsea College,is being blamed for this action and was banned from prison.But on Friday,he started a claim for the unfair dismissal.He is arguing that he had no idea that Nicholas was a hacker.The hacking incident occurred in 2011 and has now come to light because the IT teacher is suing the college. A Prison Service spokesman said: ‘At the time of this incident in 2011 the educational computer system at HMP Isis was a closed network. No access to personal information or wider access to the internet or other prison systems would have been possible.’ To read more from original source [Click Here!]
