Civil War Amongst Anonymous Breaks Out; AnonOps Sites Hacked
RSS by Harry Monogenis 2 days ago, 16674 views
The hacking group who attacked several Sony websites around a month ago and who are now accused of bringing down the PlayStation Network have gotten into a little bit of trouble. It seems that some sort of civil war has broken out amongst "AnonOps," a breakaway group from Anonymous, after a rogue admin going by the name "Ryan" hacked multiple AnonOps websites.
The result was quite a mess with a bit of profanity spread across the webpage, as well as a small comic strip poking fun of Anonymous. On top of that, the site is now littered with chat logs and IP addresses of members and the site has been renamed to "LOL ANONOPS DEAD." The "AnonOps Netstaff" was quick to update its users on the matter by posting a message on another one of their websites.
We regret to inform you today that our network has been compromised by a former IRC-operator and fellow helper named "Ryan". He decided that he didn't like the leaderless command structure that AnonOps Network Admins use. So he organised a coup d'etat, with his "friends" at skidsr.us . Using the networks service bot "Zalgo" he scavenged the IP's and passwords of all the network servers (including the hub) and then systematically aimed denial of service attacks at them (which is why the network has been unstable for the past week). Unfortunately he has control of the domain names AnonOps.ru (and possibly AnonOps.net, we don't know at this stage) so we are unable to continue using them.
The message then went on to warn any users trying to connect to one of AnonOps' IRC chats via the now comprimised site.
We would STRONGLY ADVISE all users to STAY AWAY from AnonOps.net and AnonOps.ru, and they should be considered COMPROMISED. Using or connecting to any service on those addresses may put your computer, and by extension your person, at risk.
"Ryan," according to the messages posted, was a network administrator for AnonOps. This news comes in just days after Sony discovered several files uploaded onto the PlayStation Network servers with Anonymous' slogan. Two days after the discovery, two veteran Anonymous members stated that the group was most likely behind the attack that took down the PlayStation Network on April 20.
