Hackers penetrated Nasdaq computers

Federal authorities are investigating repeated intrusions into the computer network that runs the Nasdaq stock exchange, according to a Wall Street Journal report that cited people familiar with the matter.

The intrusions did not compromise the tech-heavy exchange's trading platform, which executes investors' trades, but it was unknown which other sections of the network were accessed, according to the report.
"So far, [the perpetrators] appear to have just been looking around," one person involved in the Nasdaq matter told the Journal.

The Secret Service reportedly initiated an investigation involving New York-based Nasdaq OMX Group last year, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations has launched a probe as well. Investigators are considering a range of motives for the breach, including national security threat, personal financial gain, and theft of trade secrets, the newspaper reported.

Nasdaq representatives could not be reached for comment.


Eat it, The Man.

Anonymous hacks firm trying to investigate it

A security firm investigating the people behind the recent Anonymous cyberattacks on various Web sites has become a victim of the group's exploits.

Information security research firm HBGary Federal, which said that it had been working with the FBI to identify the leaders of Anonymous, saw its Web site hacked and the Twitter account of its CEO, Aaron Barr, compromised yesterday by the group.

"Today we taught everyone a lesson. When we actually decide to bite back against those who try to bring us down, we bite hard," Anonymous tweeted on Barr's hacked Twitter page.

Beyond tweeting its success in hacking Barr's account, Anonymous revealed information about the CEO claiming to be his home address, Social Security number, and cell phone number. The group was also able to hack into the LinkedIn account of HBGary Chief Operating Officer Ted Vera, a task that Forbes said took a little more than two minutes and another 10 minutes to get Vera's address and phone number.

HBGary Federal's domain names hbgary.com and hbgaryfederal.com, which have since been released, and its Web site, which has since been taken offline, were all hacked in the attack, Anonymous replaced the site with a page describing its motives behind the attack. In its message, the group claims that documents uncovered by HBGary purporting to reveal the names of the "higher-ups" at Anonymous had incorrect information.

In addition to defacing the Web page, Anonymous downloaded more than 60,000 of the company's e-mails, which it then posted to the Pirate Bay file-sharing site along with its statement touting its attack against the security firm.

Barr apparently got himself into hot water when he told the Financial Times in a story published Saturday that he had identified two of the key members of Anonymous in the United States as well as senior members in other countries. Although the Financial Times said that he wasn't intending to share his findings with the authorities, one source from Anonymous involved in the cyberattack told Forbes that Barr was planning to sell the information to the FBI.

The cyberattack against HBGary was both more involved and more vicious than the standard distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that Anonymous launched against PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, and other companies in December. Claiming it was targeting those sites in defense of whistle-blowing site WikiLeaks, Anonymous has found itself in trouble with the FBI, which has been issuing search warrants as part of an ongoing investigation and with British police, which recently arrested five individuals in connection with the cyberattacks.

There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Am I alone with the feeling that something's coming? Something's about to happen?

Or is that just wishful thinking?

Julian Assange seems to have gone quiet; meanwhile, Anonymous is taking an even more active hand:

Anonymous takes over Syrian government site.

There's been chatter about targeting the Syrian regime on Twitter and IRC channels where purported members of hacktivist groups like Anonymous hang out, but now it looks like those folks have gone and done it.

Anonymous says it replaced the home page of the Syrian Ministry of Defense site with its logo and a call for the downfall of President Bashar al-Assad. As of this writing Monday morning, the site was inaccessible.
A version of the logo and message were posted to a mirror site.



Anonymous claims to have replaced the Syrian Ministry of Defense homepage with a message blasting the regime.

The message addresses both Syrian citizens fighting against a regime that has responded violently to an "Arab Spring"-inspired uprising and the military forces that have been doing the cracking down. It was posted in both Arabic and English:

Quote
To the Syrian people: The world stands with you against the brutal regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Know that time and history are on your side -- tyrants use violence because they have nothing else, and the more violent they are, the more fragile they become. We salute your determination to be non-violent in the face of the regime's brutality, and admire your willingness to pursue justice, not mere revenge. All tyrants will fall, and thanks to your bravery Bashar Al-Assad is next.

To the Syrian military: You are responsible for protecting the Syrian people, and anyone who orders you to kill women, children, and the elderly deserves to be tried for treason. No outside enemy could do as much damage to Syria as Bashar Al-Assad has done. Defend your country -- rise up against the regime! -- Anonymous.

A message on the AnonymousIRC Twitter account claimed responsibility for the hack this morning.

There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Well, it's more being a pest than revolting. But, yes, we can call it the beginning. But...we need a little more bang to get the message through. A group of high school kids can take over a website.

So, what information exactly is FB selling to the government? That I think J.Lo is talentless? That went to North Carolina on vacation? That I researched how to make my own nuclear fission lab?

Well if FB were selling info to the government it would probably be all of the above and the government would filter out 99% of people and just look at those they already know/care about.
