Some of Hager’s hacking pals have been at it again


In Nicky Hager’s blinkered world, hackers are just guys wanting to expose the truth because they are upset about something or someone. They use their criminal skills to take information and then put it into the public arena using friendly and sympathetic so-called ‘investigative journalists’.

Nicky Hager is one of the most well-known investigative journalists in New Zealand. He has ?an uncanny ability to always be in the right spot at the right time whenever a hacker wants to drop off a memory stick. Hackers are co-writers of every one of his books, as he prefers to sift through stolen information like the Panama papers rather than actually go out into the real world and talk to people.

Now a hacker collective have decided to punish the ‘bad guys’ worldwide. Their targets are banks and their justification is that they are retaliating against the ?elite banking cartels putting the world in a perpetual state of chaos”. In order to achieve this they themselves are causing chaos but, being hackers with the limited intellectual prowess of Rawshark, they don’t see it that way.

?I Can?t Live Without Love

My Loneliness Destroyed Me.?

??Jenny comforts me. She is the best therapist for me. She has completely changed my life, my thinking, my definition of freedom, of love and partnership.? Dirk and Jenny have a fixed daily schedule, every evening at 6 pm they are sitting on the sofa watching television. ?With my ex-wives I always had to fight for love. Not with Jenny. With her I found peace.?

Many of us abandon our dolls, boxing up our G.I. Joes and Barbies and banishing them to the basement once we hit a certain age and lose interest in them, or find it is no longer socially acceptable to play with dolls. But other people develop a fascination with the inanimate objects that continues into adulthood. Dolls are really interesting because they look like us, and you can project your dreams on them, your wants, your desires, your losses, whatever they are – and the dolls can mirror them back.

Imagine how much time you’d spend in jail if you actually worked closely with the hacker

Imagine how much time you’d spend in jail if you actually worked closely with the hacker…especially if you actually helped plan the whole hack attack.

I’m looking at you Mr Hager, Mr Fisher and Mr Nippert.

A journalist with connections to the hacking collective Anonymous has been sentenced to five years in jail after posting online links to stolen data.

Barrett Brown originally faced charges punishable by more than 100 years in prison, but the sentence was reduced after he pleaded guilty last year.

He said he broke the law to reveal details of illegal government activity.

The case drew criticism from advocates of free speech and media rights organisations.

One of Mr Brown’s supporters is Glenn Greenwald, a journalist who publicised the National Security Agency (NSA) spying programme revealed by whistle-blower Edward Snowden. ? Read more »

Like murdering people to prove life is precious

Anonymous is threatening MPs who voted for the GCSB Bill. The Gurnard reports breathlessly without noting any irony at all with their threats:

Politicians who were instrumental in the passing of the controversial GCSB law are being targeted by an international hacker group which wants to dump their secrets online.

The Anonymous group of “hacktivists” say they will give the politicians who voted the bill in the chance to prove they truly have nothing to hide – and nothing to fear.

In an interview with the?Herald, carried out through encrypted chat services, an Anonymous member named Prime Minister John Key, his deputy Bill English and Attorney-General Chris Finlayson as top of the hit list. United Future leader Peter Dunne and Act leader John Banks were also named.

“Releasing such personal information sends a message that they’re not very hard to find, they aren’t the only ones who can gather intelligence.? Read more »

Anonymous hacks Westboro Baptist

The bigots and haters at Westboro Baptist Church claim their site was protected by God from hackers…wrong:

The hacking collective known as Anonymous renewed their war on the Westboro Baptist Church today. After the haters from the infamous church posted their intentions to?picket the funerals of the twenty children?killed?in?the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Anonymous responded by?re-posting the personal and professional information?for members of the church on the Internet. Now the?general?public can contact the church members directly and tell them what they think about people who would desecrate the funerals of murdered children.

Anonymous has been after the Westboro Baptist Church?for?several?months now, hacking their websites repeatedly. Recently,?they accused the church?of creating a fake letter from the hacking group in?order?to trick other?hackers?into attacking the website. Anonymous warned their supporters the church planned to harvest internet addresses and sue people. Suing people is apparently the primary activity of the?Westboro Baptist Church when they aren?t screaming hate at funerals.

Of course, Westboro denied the charges and taunted Anonymous as?incompetent?hackers. They claimed their website was protected by God. Big mistake. A few days later, while a Westboro spokeswoman was boasting about how the church foiled Anonymous on a?radio?talk show, an Anonymous?spokesman?called in and?hacked the church?s website in real time on the air.

Hopefully saner heads will prevail and nothing terrible will occur if the Westboro Baptist Church shows up in Newtown, Connecticut. The?State?Police made the extraordinary decision to assign a trooper to each of the victim?s families to prevent unwelcome idiots from tormenting them and to protect their privacy.

It is hard to imagine what kind of person would attend the funerals for these children and promote the hate filled message of the?Phelps family and their followers. While we certainly do not condone illegal activity, it is hard not to root for Anonymous as they take it to these sad, pathetic excuses for human beings from the?Westboro Baptist Church.

Amanda Todd

Amanda Todd committed suicide in Canada last week, just before she killed herself she posted a video on Youtube.

from Wikipedia:

Amanda Michelle Todd?(November 27, 1996 – October 10, 2012) was a?Canadian?teenager who committed?suicide?attributed to?cyber-bullying?through the?social networking?website?Facebook.?On 7 September 2012, Todd posted a video on?YouTube?in which she used a series of?flash cards?to tell of her experience of being blackmailed, bullied, and physically assaulted.?In it she mentions sending an image of her breasts to a man who later circulated it around the internet.

Shortly before 6:00 pm on October 10, 2012, the?Royal Canadian Mounted Police?were called to her home in?Port Coquitlam, to investigate what they refer to as a “sudden death”.?They have since launched a full investigation into Todd’s death.?Police are conducting interviews, reviewing content at social media sites, and are actively monitoring pages.

Christy Clark, the?Premier of British Columbia, made an online statement of condolence suggesting a national discussion be made discussing criminalizing cyber-bullying.

The video is powerful:

Meanwhile Anonymous claims to have outed her bully:

Accusations are being made in the suicide death of Amanda Todd through videos and messages claiming to be from the online activist group Anonymous, which says it knows the identity of the girl’s stalker.

They have named a Vancouver-area man, saying on an online post ?at the most this is the person who did this to Amanda Todd, and at the least it?s another pedophile that enjoys taking advantage of children.?

Todd, 15, committed suicide Wednesday following years of bullying and detailed in a YouTube video last month how the harassment began after an online stalker sent nude images of her to ?everyone? she knew.

Mounties are currently investigating past and present social media links connected to Todd.

An online user name, with unclear ties to a New Westminster, B.C., address, is referenced in multiple clippings compiled by Anonymous from several websites over the years. One website suggests the user ?blackmailed? and gave advice to girls.

The same user name is tied to a forum for teen sexuality, the post reads, and another website with a ?jailbait? photo gallery.

?We have brought this announcement forwards solely for the purpose of releasing Amanda Todd?s punisher?s identity,? said a YouTube video posted Monday, claiming to be from Anonymous.

?Below, you will find a URL to the man?s DOX. In there, you will see various information about said person.?

The post also details how a group ? which doesn?t openly list any affiliation to Anonymous ? has labelled the online user as ?Blackmailer of the year? in a video posted in January last year.

If you need help there is masses of resources at Suicide Prevention Information New Zealand:

The Suicide Prevention Information New Zealand video series was developed to help people at risk of suicide, those who are close to them and those who have lost significant people through suicide. The videos?give you facts and very practical ways of preventing suicide.

The six videos in the series each cover a different topic:

Recognisable warning signs

Risk factors

Caring for someone suicidal

Coping with bereavement

Suicide in communities

Common myths about suicide

The video series discusses the subject of suicide in some depth. If you think you may be distressed by this material, please have someone with you as a support while you watch the videos.

They will get a bloody good hiding

? The Telegraph

Anarchist groups from across southern Europe may target the Olympics in their anti-austerity campaign, police and security sources believe.

Violent groups who clashed with police in Greece and Spain over austerity cuts could launch an attack on the summer Games to ensure worldwide publicity, it is feared.

The Italian group, the Informal Anarchist Federation, has already threatened to wage a ?low-intensity war? against the Olympics.

That group, known by its Italian initials FAI, has also been linked with a failed mail bomb attack on a German bank.

The hacking group Anonymous has also warned it intends to target the global event.

Silly bastards. Mr Plod will be out in force and apparently after the May Day riots they got some genetically modified Mr Plods who were all at least 6?6? and looked like they would prefer to beat up skinny, smelly hippies than go for a swift half at their local. Then the hippies were stupid enough to invade the London Stock Exchange where the local barrow boys gave them a sound hiding for their troubles too.

Since football hooliganism went out of fashion there haven’t been many opportunities for the British male to show his bulldog spirit, so if a bunch of euro hippies want a scrap there is a fair chance they will be offered one.

Anonymous for Cunliffe

Behold – a new website to promote the virtues of David Cunliffe as Labour’s leader. It’s great to see people so enthusiastically support their choice for Labour leader.

But who are the people behind the website?

Turns out, they’re not such great supporters that they want their identity known.

A quick search of Whois reveals:

Name : We Want David Cunliffe
Address : Auckland
City : Auckland
Post code : 1001
Country : NZ (NEW ZEALAND)
Phone : +64 9 0000000
E-mail : [email protected]

So, whoever the anonymous person is, they’ve probably broken terms and conditions of website registration.

Still, there are some big clues on the website…

After all, who is the kind of person who likes using anonymous identities AND is also passionate about the Waitakere Ranges in Auckland?
