Anonymous hacks ST Transit System Website

It will be interesting to see how city, state and federal agencies respond... If I recall correctly the UK was reporting recntly that they'd arrested most of the Anonymous Leadership


  Twitter traffic related to Anonymous boasted that hackers had been able to get into BART's internal network.

Hackers target San Francisco's rapid transit system

CNN) -- Members of a well-known hacking group -- according to a statement and Twitter messages -- took credit Sunday for an online attack targeting San Francisco's embattled transit system.
Anonymous -- in a news release attributed to the group, and backed up by related Twitter pages -- said it would take down the website of the Bay Area Rapid Transit System, known as BART, between noon and 6 p.m. PT Sunday. This is in response to the system's decision to cut off cellphone signals at "select" subway stations in response to a planned protest last week.
"By (cutting cell service), you have not only threatened your citizens' safety, you have also performed an act of censorship," a seemingly computer-generated voice -- speaking over dramatic music and images -- said in a video posted online Sunday afternoon. "By doing this, you have angered Anonymous."
On Sunday afternoon, a link off BART's website to apparently had been hacked. It showed a page featuring, among other items, the Anonymous logo -- a smirking mask above two crossed swords, all on a black background.

  1. Is this an international group?

  2. Yes.. This is the group that decided to avenge Assange when Wikileaks was brought down, anomg other things they shut down Visa for several hours then.

  3. The user image looks like something the varmint on Florida Today would use, but we know he/she/it is not bright enough to have figured out how to hack. That takes some technological know how. Not something a 12 year could master.

  4. interesting... there are pockets of these terrorists everywhere.

  5. Marine, I looked at a couple of their video's, in many ways he sounds like them...

    Swan, this group seems to go beyond just being a pocket

    BTW, since you're both here, If I get the energy I'm going to post a blog written around a video this afternoon.. Swan, really think, FDR, Max and friends will like it.. Marine, pretty sure flea bait will freak--and Ronnie will go ballistic..It confirms a member of the Brotherhood holds an ambassadorship and is a key advisor to Obama.

  6. Grumpy - I expect there are many. They run in packs.
