Anonymous Release Message About #OpNewSon Claimed Failure

Last Week was meant to be the start of a all new operation named #OpNewSon which was being carried out against high profile targets. Well on the first day of the claimed operation it pretty much fell apart, with the social networks calling it a fail operation anonymous hacktivist have now released a small statement attempting to explain what went wrong. According to them the IRC network ( chat room ) that they was using for the main form of communication between anonymous hacktivist and others interested in the operation was apparently shut down by network admin, mainly one they call "storm", now how true this exactly is is unknown. As anonymous has stated in the recent message they didnt succesfully take down one target already and the operation never had a time peroid where it was going to be running for, they only ever said it will start on the 25th of may 2012. The message from anonymous about the claimed fail has been posted on the @TheWikiBoat pastebin account.

Many people are wondering what happened to #OpNewSon; Did it fail? Did it succeed? Who was to blame? etc. Well I'm going to try and clear a lot of this up, +--------------+ | Did it fail? | +--------------+ It's hard to say really, one target was downed, and #OpNewSon has only just begun; We never exactly said how long it would last, and it certainly isn't over yet. +-------------------+ | Who was to blame? | +-------------------+ The conclusion we've come to is that the 'VoxAnon' IRC network admins are to blame, 'storm' primarily. The IRC channel was our main form of communication and where most people participating in #OpNewSon joined and talked. It's simple really, take the engine out of a car, and you wont get too far. ......................................................................................................... Hopefully this will clear up some of the confusion, keep sailin'
