Remember, Remember, the 5th of November


“Remember, remember the 5th of November
The gunpowder treason and plot
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot”

Well, it is indeed that day again when Anonymous announce their hacking marathon on the globally marked day of protest, or better yet, Guy Fawkes Day.
Following in the footsteps of Anonymous’ October 20th protest, Monday’s revolt will be addressing surveillance and surveillance systems such as TrapWire and INDECT.

Trapwire and INDECT antagonists view such surveillance systems as direct breaches of privacy as well as numerous civil freedoms, and if they were to be invoked, they’d most certainly lead to human rights trespass.

Even though it might still be early in many parts of the day, Anonymous’ multiple Twitter accounts have already announced the distortions for the day; leaking user and employee account information on accounts from PayPal, Symantec, Australian government to name but a few. Updates from this protest can be easily tracked on and shared on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Pastebin.

In case you were wondering about the full list of websites that would be hacked today, here are the ones that are announced thus far by the hacktivists:
1. ImageShack and PayPal
2. Ascension Australia
4. Lady Gaga’s Fansite
5. Saturday Night Live website
6. Arcelor Mittal (Australian steel and mining company)
7. GiftNow ( homeware website)
8. The Greek City website
9. The Ghana Consulate website
10. VMware ESX Server Kernel source code

As you have probably concluded from the list above, or from your own Anonymous watch, Anonymous Australia is definitely the most efficacious at this moment.

Another press release has just been broadcasted via Pastebin, declaring a reenactment of “V For Vendetta” protest at The Houses of Parliament, taking place in London at 8PM.

Canadian protestors are most certainly at distress right now over sporting their Guy Fawkes masks or ditching them, why you ask? Well, because just last week, a bill that bans people from hiding their faces during protests was approved by Canada’s House of Commons.

We’re on the watch for this hacking fiasco and will keep you posted once updates are available. Be safe and be alert!
