I don’t usually mention Anonymous on my highway but i feel that the time is right, my ‘spidey senses’ have been *tingling* all over Anonymous and its recent actions and i can’t decide how i should view them.
Some of there actions i see as ethical but then there are those part of the ‘Anonymous Collective’ who are just DoSing / DDoSing legitimate sites for Twitter fame. I see actions like that as a sign of Cyber Terrorism with no exception but to cause Damage and inconvenience.
I’m not trying to say Anonymous is a terrorist organisation but i’m not trying to say its not, by Just looking at the structure of Anonymous can exploit big risks, AQ and other terrorist organisations can easily manipulate the Anonymous Collective into doing damage to vital services such as CIA, FBI, Home Land Security. Local Police etc. You could literally be doing someone else s dirty work and when all is traced back (which it most definitely would be) it will lead NOT to AQ but to your basement.
Anonymous is leaderless ,there is no physical or virtual infrastructure other than there script kiddie IRCs and chit chat… but that’s hardly an infrastructure, this is because Anonymous goes against ‘control’ and believe everyone should be equal, i can agree with this to a certain extent but without control there is no organisation and without organisation *sighs* there is no planning and without planning *sighs again* there is a “system-set-up-to-fail” .
Anonymous is becoming more at risk to middle east co-operations without acknowledgement of it even taking place.
Until the ‘Anons’ design a better infrastructure and stop targeting legitimate websites with no real cause then i will not be supporting them or the ‘idea’ they so famously talk about.
If you are a little script kiddie anon who’s been DDoS Attacking legitimate websites then it is almost inevitable that there will be a knock on your door. Your mum will not be happy… just sayin.
The majority of those who represent Anonymous on social networks such as the most prominent one …. Twitter are constantly fighting each other, like i said before .. its a system set-up-to-fail. They also have a few trolls in there recipe that make Bomb threats and death threats to one another along with organisations and security specialists, at first it may all be innocent fun but the tunnel Anonymous has decided to go down is a very dark tunnel indeed.
What’s your view on the Anonymous Collective?
