PayPal has lost 5.57 million attacks with #Anonymous - #OpPayback

The attacks by the Anonymous PayPal in retaliation for the decision to deny payments to WikiLeaks last year, resulted in losses of $ 5.57 million to the website of online payments, reports the Daily Mail.

The value came during the trial of hackers involved in the denial of service attacks - when a page is bombarded with more requests than it can handle - which overthrew the PayPal website and required 100 technicians working to restore the site.

Four youths - Christopher Weatherhead, 22, Ashley Rhodes, 28, Peter Gibson, 24, and a 18 year old guy whose name was not disclosed by British justice, are being charged with conspiracy.

 As the promoter Samit Patel, was used a free tool available on the Internet called Low Orbit Ion Canon (LOIC). Once downloaded, the "gun" can be used to attacks by concentrating traffic access to a specific page. Patel also said that LOIC was used in conjunction with another service, called AnonOps, which allows remote "zombie" computers to attack simultaneously.

Leaked document of 5000 Israeli Officials - #Anonymous #OpIsrael

Greetings Citizens of the world, This is Anonymous. It has come to our attention that the Israeli government has ignored repeated warnings about the abuse of human rights, shutting down the internet in Israel and mistreating its own citizens and those of its neighboring countries. November 2012 will be a month to remember for the Israeli defense forces and internet security forces. Israeli Gov. this is/will turn into a cyberwar.

We are Anonymous
We are Legion
We will not forgive.
We will not forget.
Israel, it is too late to expect us.

Anonymous takes on Israeli websites, wipes Jerusalem bank

Anonymous has launched a hacking campaign against a number of Israeli sites in protest of attacks taking place on Gaza. The hacking spree, dubbed OpIsrael, has resulted in so many Israeli websites being defaced or shut down through methods including denial of service (DoS) attacks, that it's hard to keep count. However, some enterprising hacktivists have begun compiling lists of affected websites.

Targets have included governmental, retail, and businesses -- some belonging to the automotive and fashion industries. The bank of Jerusalem has received particular attention from the hacktivists, as the cyberattackers crowed over their achievement in deleting the organisation's online database through social network Twitter. 

According to the latest list, 663 sites have been affected. In an earlier blog post, the collective claimed that 127 Israeli sites were defaced in one of the first waves -- and the number keeps rising. A press release from

Anonymous says that when the government of Israel publicly threatened to sever all Internet and other telecommunications into and out of Gaza, "they crossed a line in the sand." The statement continues: "As the former dictator of Egypt Mubarack learned the hard way -- we are ANONYMOUS and NO ONE shuts down the Internet on our watch.

" Anonymous finished with a stark warning to government if it persists in trying to cut telecom and web links. In addition, the collective said that unless attacks cease, the Israeli government "will know the full and unbridled wrath of Anonymous. And like all the other evil governments that have faced our rage, you will NOT survive it unscathed."

Anonymous attacked 40 sites the government of Israel! #OpIsrael

After the Israeli army killing a military high command of Hamas on Wednesday (14), hackers affiliated with Anonymous began attacking websites Israeli retaliation, according to the New York Times.

The operation called #OpIsrael began at 6am (GMT) on Thursday (15) and was announced on the group's Twitter profile. To date, 40 sites in the country suffered attacks related to the army, the banks and airlines and Israeli security.

Also according to the New York Times, page Israeli army came to be replaced by an image of Gaza in flames, followed by the message: - Stop Bombing Gaza! Thousands of Israelis and Palestinians are passing sleepless nights, vulnerable and terrified.

To organize the operation, hackers recruited volunteers on Twitter and Pastebin, site frequently used by Anonymous to publish information about the attacks. Hackers used a relatively simple tool for action: a malicious link was sent to the site server. Once accessed, the program connected the server to a computer network, allowing traffic to slow until complete collapse.

Anonymous Hackers may have hacked Former CIA Director

CIA Director was uncovered when a woman described as close to him received harassing emails and complained to authorities. The FBI traced the emails and found that they had been sent by Paula Broadwell, who wrote a highly favorable book on the former Army general's life and work.

While initially investigating the reports, the FBI feared the CIA director's personal email account may have been hacked, but the sexual nature of the email exchanges exposed the affair. A Yahoo email account belonging to former CIA Director David Petraeus may have been compromised by the group Anonymous. The personal email account was exposed during the the leak of commercial intelligence company STRATFOR by Anonymous Hackers, among other millions of email accounts of customers belongs to the company.

 The emails sent by Broadwell indicated that she perceived the other woman as a threat to her relationship with Petraeus, law enforcement officials. Anonymous also obtained email logins to STRATFOR's website which potentially could have been used by Paula Broadwell for email or other secure sites as well as correspondence. Broadwell was reportedly under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for allegedly trying to obtain access to the retired general's classified emails. Broadwell, a married mother of two young sons, apparently had no idea any of this was coming.
