Anonymous is in the eye of the DHS, with a recent bullentin being released, classed unclassifed it has fairly detailed information about anonymous and what they do and why they do it. the six page bulletin which is ment to serv as a way of informing others about the actions of anonymous makes some outragous statements in the name of anonymous. Within this statement it admits that due to anonymous having no leadership as such it is making it hard for the law to catch up with them, and that they will contuine the attacks in the forseable furture. It talks about that anonymous use tools that are often related to skiddies, i wonder if they realize a lot of the bigger attacks are done with custom scripts/exploits? anyway moving on. Now this document just confirms that anonymous is making its mark on the work, leaving its bit in the history books for us to all read years down the track. TERMS OF REFERENCE
(U) Anonymous - (used as a mass noun) is an Internet meme originating 2003 on the imageboard 4chan,
representing the concept of many online community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic,
digitized global brain. It is also generally considered to be a blanket term for members of certain
Internet subcultures, a way to refer to the actions of people in an environment where their actual
identities are not known.
(U) Lulz - often used to denote laughter at someone who is the victim of a prank, or a reason for
performing an action. This variation is often used on the ‘Oh Internet’ wiki and ‘4chan’ image boards.
(U) Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) - an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its
intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DDoS attack may vary, it
generally consists of the concerted efforts of person or persons to prevent an Internet site or service
from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely.
(U) Hacktivist - a portmanteau of hack and activism anyways here is the document.
