I've been hearing a lot about a person/group called

Many people seem to be big fans of this person/group, but who are they exactly and what do they do?


What do you think of them?

I heard they threatened to hit back after the Feds took down megaupload, so am guessing they are hackers?

What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel ......

They're just a group of Anonymous internet users that work together (through sites like Reddit, 4Chan, etc.) that attack and bring down websites in protest. They bring them down by basically sending thousands and thousands of requests to the websites to the point where the website can't handle the traffic and goes down.

For a more technical definition, check Wikipedia :D

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDoS

They've already brought down plenty of websites today after MegaUpload was shut down including the Justice department, RIAA, Universal, etc. all the people that are supporting the SOPA bill. I think what they're doing is great, they're protesting online in the only way they can and showing that internet users will not stand for this kind of bullying.

If you want to follow them on Twitter, I think this is what they're using : https://twitter.com/#!/AnonDaily

One thing to add to what Bylk said, they became very popular in what's called "Deep Web" or "Invisible Web". Deep web is an area of the internet where everything is available and open to anybody. It's a completely different "internet" than what we use and interact with on a daily basis. Just getting access to it takes a toll on the average user due to the fact that it's very secure and well hidden.

Just to give you a hint or an idea of how big "deep web" is...

There is everything in the deep web, people hire assassins, sell weapons, hire spies. I have actually seen all of those with my own eyes on one of the forums in deep web.. i was shocked. It's such a big world that they have their own currency, called the Bitcoin and 1 Bitcoin = 10 US dollars.

Anyways, this group "Anonymous" gained so much popularity in that part of the internet that it started recruiting the best of the best (hackers) to fight for the openness and freedom of the internet.

Never heard of this deep web. Why would it be so much bigger if there's way less users? :dontgetit:

Wa Alaikum Asalam , great post!

I'd like to add that its not difficult to visit the Deep Web, all you need is Tor

but at the same time it can be a bad experience for the reasons that brother Beebo mentioned and others!

if you do , make sure to stay away from anything labeled as a ‘chan’ or ‘bulletin board’ , thats why governments tried to block Tor.

Yea, but you have to have some sort of a site that would get you access to the deep web, because trust me it took me at least 4 hours to get there using Tor lol

sure it is :pimp:

So I searched Tor and I got this cool movie about some dude who travels between different worlds and has a big hammer. Then there was another site talking about the Onion project? Jew3atni to be honest.
