The hacker group anonymous has been in “power” for quite some time now, being the leading group in hacking for causes and working for the “underdogs,” but just days after targeting Mexican drug cartels the group released their “retreat”, so says NYDN
“We didn’t want irresponsible administrators to condemn participants [in ‘Operation Cartel’] to death,” they told the newspaper in a statement in Spanish.
The about face comes in the wake of a report by Stratfor, a security company, that the drug cartel, Zetas, would launch violent reprisals.
“We have seen reports that Los Zetas are deploying their own teams of computer experts to track those individuals involved in the online anti-cartel campaign, which indicates that the criminal group is taking the campaign very seriously,” Stratfor tactical analyst Ben West said in a video released by the company.
Anonymous is known for multiple hacks of government agencies as well as being the follow-up group to the previous biggest hacker group Lulz Security. Now that a San Francisco transit system enacted a new policy on a transit system that blocks all cell phone signal the group acted.
… hackers angry over blocked cell phone service at some transit stations broke into a website and posted company contact information for more than 2,000 customers.
Anonymous posted people’s names, phone numbers, and street and email addresses on its own website, while also calling for a disruption of the Bay Area Rapid Transit’s evening commute Monday.
BART officials said Sunday that they were working a strategy to try to block any efforts by protesters to try to disrupt the service.
Anonymous, the hacker group which has followed up “Lulz Security” as the main force behind thousands upon thousands of files being leaked, has set against the “evils of social networking.” Now the clock is ticking as people are waiting to see if their bark is as bad as their bite.
