Hackers Go After More Anti-Gay African Countries?

Anonymous last week took down the Ugandan Prime Minister's website, and now comes news that it has taken on a handful of other anti-gay African countries as well, Zambian Watchdog reports:

UgandaSo far websites in Botswana, Somalia, Sudan, and Uganda have been taken down or their databases have been leaked. The groups promise more websites will be hacked in African states that oppress LGBT rights. Last Thursday, hacktivists hacked the website of Botswana’s Export Development and Investment Authority, and leaked its database. Somalia’s TV Network and Gurmad company websites were also hacked.

Anonymous also recently hacked the Sudanese stock exchange in Khartoom, Sudan – leaking its database.The groups also promise to bring down key websites in all African countries that imprison or kill gay people. Humantarian and human rights related websites will not be trarged.

Just last week saw the hackers taking over Ugandan Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi’s website. They posted a fictitious statement on the site in which Mbabazi apologised for his government’s anti-gay stance and expressed his support for the recent Uganda gay Pride week.

“We have got to expel the narrow mindedness from this country, and begin afresh, starting with a full and formal apology to all homosexuals living in Uganda today,” Mbabazi was “quoted” as saying.

The groups also addressed the prime minister on the website: “You should be PROUD of your LGBT citizens, because they clearly have more balls than you will ever have.”

Anonymous Hackers Hijack Ugandan PM's Website To Protest Anti-Gay Politics


The rascally hacker collective Anonymous went after Ugandan Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi's website this week to protest the government's egregious homophobia.

In one action, they posted a formal apology to LGBT people "from" Mbabazi. It reads, "We have got to expel the narrow mindedness from this country, and begin afresh, starting with a full and formal apology to all homosexuals living in Uganda today." (Click image to pop-out.) Anonymous also left a message on the site saying the prime minister's "violations of the rights of LGBT people have disgusted us."

"ALL people have the right to live in dignity free from the repression of someone else's political and religious beliefs. You should be PROUD of your LGBT citizens, because they clearly have more balls than you will ever have," they wrote.

The group also left an explanatory message about the incident at Pastebin:

Today's hack and deface of the Ugandan Prime Minister's site was the latest in a long list of actions against the government and infrastructure of Uganda for crimes against LGBT people.
We currently have full control of the President of Uganda's website.
We will not stand by while LGBT Ugandans are victimized, abused and murdered by a ruthless and corrupt government. #TheEliteSociety and #Anonymous will continue to target Ugandan government sites and communications until the government of Uganda treats all people including LGBT equally and with respect, dignity and immediately ends the arrest and harassment of LGBT.

While the Ugandan government has since reprogrammed Mbabazi's virtual digs, Anonymous' high profile should shed a harsher light on their draconian behavior, including police raids to roundup gay people and revived legislative efforts looking to make homosexuality punishable by death. And there's no overwriting that kind of negative publicity.

Hacker Group Anonymous Announces Plans to Take Down Facebook: VIDEO


An account claiming to be the hacker group 'Anonymous' posted a video yesterday announcing its plans to take down Facebook and enlisting those who want to help, as a protest against SOPA and PIPA.

CNET reports: "A tweet from the AnonOps Twitter account denies that this video has anything to do with Anonymous: 'Again we must say that we will not attack #Facebook! Again the mass media lie.'"

They add:

Facebook, for its part, told me through a representative that it's ready for attacks from Anonymous or anyone else.

The representative said: "We expect Anonymous just like we expect any other attack on any other day. Due to our size, we face the same threats as seen everywhere else on the Web, but we have developed partnerships, backend systems, and protocols to confront the full range of security challenges we face. Facebook has always been committed to protecting our users' information, and we will continue to innovate and work tirelessly to defend this data."

Hacker Group Anonymous Says It Will Bring Down Facebook: VIDEO


Hacker group Anonymous says it will take down Facebook on November 5, 2011, which also happens to be Guy Fawkes Day.

Says a video posted on YouTube in mid-July: ""Facebook has been selling information to government agencies and giving clandestine access to information security firms so they can spy all the people from all around the world...If you are a willing hacktivist or a guy who just wants to protect the freedom of information then join the cause and kill facebook for the sake of your own privacy."

One international security specialist said the threat is likely a hoax, the International Business times reported:

"The news around #Anonymous to attack #Facebook on Nov 5 most probably is fake," tweeted Eugene Kaspersky, an information security specialist.

The news was picked up by media outlets just yesterday, though it first appeared on July 16 when a newly created YouTube channel FacebookOp uploaded the video "Message from Anonymous: Operation Facebook, Nov 5 2011." The manifesto urges the audience to kill Facebook on account of privacy.

Kaspersky warned web users to "pay attention to the strange Twitter name they used and links to websites with adverts."

UPDATE: It's all apparently just a big misunderstanding.
