    "Anonymous" cripples Australian Spy site to protest web spy plan

    August 10, 2012

    The notorious hacking group Anonymous crippled a computer server at the domestic spy agency, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, and claimed the agency's website would be unavailable for the rest of the day (since updated moments ago on SKY NEWS AUSTRALIA that it is now back up and running).

    An Australian arm of the loose-knit hacking group Anonymous announced its attack via its Twitter account shortly after 10am today. "Server ASIO » ASIO - Home has been down for some time now, And will be for the rest of the day!" the account stated.

    ASIO's website was down for at least half an hour this morning and now either loads slowly or doesn't work at all. The spy agency said in a statement that it was "aware that there may have been some technical issues" with its site, adding that it did "not host any classified information [on it] and any disruption would not represent a risk to ASIO's business".

    Over the past week Anonymous' Australian Twitter account has been boasting it will attack the ASIO website and that of Defence Signals Directorate. "The anonymous Operation Australia hackers have today again been busy with further attacks on the ASIO and DSD website," Anonymous Australia wrote on August 8.

    A number of other distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and website defacements have been levelled at some 10 government agencies in the past month. The group also recently took data and customer records belonging to business telco AAPT from a data centre and published it on a website. Anonymous conducted the attack because it wanted to to highlight the dangers of a proposal to force telcos to store every Australian's web history for up to two years. Today's attack was done in protest of the proposal too.

    The Privacy Commissioner launched an investigation into the AAPT leak earlier this week. It comes as Fairfax Media reported today that the federal government had put the web spy proposal on the back burner, delaying it until after the next federal election.

    An Anonymous user in an internet relay chat, believed to be where the hackers have been co-ordinating the attacks on Australian websites, said the attack on ASIO's site would cease at 10pm today. They claimed a "minor victory" after the web spy proposal was put on the back burner by Attorney-General Nicola Roxon, saying Roxon "didn't want the attention leading up to the election."

    "Attacks may ease up," they said, not wanting to be quoted by the alias they used in the chatroom.

    "We will continue to watch the situation. The operation had only just started really.

    "[There] was a lot more heat to bring if she didn't back down."

    Attorney-General Nicola Roxon has previously urged interested parties to avoid "hysteria" and contribute to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security inquiry instead. But the Anonymous group member Fairfax Media spoke to said hysteria was needed.

    "Sometimes u need a bit of organised hysteria to get a reaction with an apathetic public," they said, earlier linking Fairfax Media to GetUp's campaign against the proposed reforms to Australia's laws.

    Do they not have any security on the satellite system? I'm sure they do, which makes me question who is anonymous group is and why they have access and the ability to take down a satellite? I think this is a false flag operation!
    You know they are listening to you but they can't hear you.

    Perhaps they didn't have any security on at all?
    Can you see past your belief systems?
