"Please don’t use any tool to destroy any web page," Anonymous states. "If you attack to any web page, [you] might end up in jail because it's a crime in most countries. The user has total responsibility for any illegal act."
Hmmmm, interesting. So, they do know it is a crime if they attack web sites and that is what they do. I have been saying all along they these people ARE criminals and I always get thumbs down. They you Anonymous for aditting that you are criminals.

so what Every person is a criminal by some viewpoint, They are criminals cause they stand up for the people. YOU are a criminal cause i am 100% sure somewhere in your lifetime you copied an song. You are a criminal for jaywalking.. there are many things that call other criminals but are just ridiculous if you look at what ACTUALLY IS HAPPENING.

in the middle east if a woman is raped and she reports it, she is likely to be cained and jailed, while the man may have a far lesser sentence if any at all, because she had sex outside of marriage.

because you follow the law 100% to the letter and there cant possible be bad laws or reasons to ever break them (not obey is really a better term) you must support this.

if you don't understand why you get downvoted with this exaggerated (yet real world and true) example i dont think there is anything more you can be told.

@officeguy

Thank you Anonymous for admitting that you are criminals.
You're a criminal too, you know.
Ever watched a DVD on Linux?
Ever downloaded anything?
Ever sung a few lines from a song in public?

Two of those are crimes punishable by a 250,000 dollar fine and possible jail time; the last one is simply a civil matter which can net rights-holders upwards of that quarter-million depending on how many songs you sung and how the jury's feeling.

I'm not trying to change or hide the fact that DDoS attacks are criminal; and they will continue to be for the forseeable (10-30 years) future while the current crop of technology-dumb politicians die off. After that, I expect things to change- just like I expect the DMCA to be repealed at that time (there will be something else after that though).

But the thing is that there are only certain ways to protest against a company or five that are trying to take away your freedoms; that way is online. You can't assemble many people who don't have much money to go halfway around the world (or even just the US)- so you protest in the only way you can, which in this case is online.

But that's just talking about DDoS, which forms the majority of Anonymous' operations beside the usual trolling, raids, and other Internet jokes.

I have no moral problems about joining 100,000 other people in burying a site in ping or ACK requests; that protest is usually broken up quickly and doesn't do any irreparable harm to the company you protest against.

But I DO have a problem with actually accessing a server-side computer and changing files; it's like taking down a business's poster from the inside of the shop by breaking and entering. If it's illegal to do in the physical world it should be illegal to do in digital and vice versa (something Anon fights to protect in their own strange ways).

But that's not the typical news-making operation against anti-1st-amendment target X which should be allowed to take place.

I agree with everything you say except that breaking into a website and changing it is like a poster in a store.

I would consider it more like damaging a Billboard on the side of a footpath, Destruction of property, Yes, Breaking and Entering, No. The files are placed in an area intended to be accessed by the public, Security measures are superficial, Hacking user or company data stored on secure(Non Publicly displayed) servers would be closer to breaking and entering.

Yeah it doesn't sound like a good idea to use an OS put out by known hackers, DDOS bot users. I wouldn't be surprised at all if there was some sort of hidden keylogger built in.

Just sniff your own packets and find out. If your downloading this and you don't know how to do that at least you shouldn't be downloading it.

I agree with you. Let's the nerd rage begin. Thumb down all you want. Anonymous are criminals.
We are not talking about ridiculous middle east laws here. You know in some country, the rapists are forced to marry their victims by LAW. I agree these laws are laughable.

But hey, steal personal info and attack legit websites are illegal. No matter how you put it, it's a crime.

I don't mind if they attack child-porn site. (because child porn is illegal too).

I have a hard time trusting a group like anonymous to build a distro that's NOT full of security holes to be exploited, purposefully. Call me paranoid.

[/citation]
There are very fine lines on these, and they are not as broad as your post suggests. In my opinion, your post suggests that anytime anyone engages in those activities is crime which is simply not true.

Take the following cases, for example:

Downloading "freeware" is not a crime.
Downloading "shareware" to try it is not a crime, and it may not be a crime in cases where there is inhibited functionality if you choose not to pay to register the software.
Downloading anything you legitimately paid for is also not a crime.

Singing a few lines from a song in public is also something that comes under the guise of "fair use" rights unless you get paid from the work, or try to pass off those lines as your own creation.

I understand you were trying to make a point, however, it is my opinion that there are better examples of criminal acts.

For instance:

Downloading known pirated software.
Downloading shareware then cracking it to get the paid features.
Downloading cracked software.

Singing a few lines from a published song in a venue where you get paid for singing those lines.

I'm sure you get the point.

No normal person minds that, but it is, too, illegal. The better thing to do is report the f`ing site to legal authorities. That would be far, far, far, far, far worse for the site and its owners than some vigilante executing an attack on the site.

Hacker group “Anonymous Operations” has confirmed that the custom Linux-based operating system released under its name earlier this week is not a platform it developed. “The Anon OS is fake,” the group posted on Twitter Wednesday evening. “It is wrapped in trojans.”

I wouldn't be surprised if they used their OS as a way of cheap cluster computing. They probably have special codes embedded for cluster computing.
