Blacklist – Enough Is Enough

Originally posted on Don Charisma:

Those of you that read my blog have heard a little of the morons that I have to deal with on a daily basis. My friend and fellow powerblogger Jason Cushman “A Opinionated Man” from Harsh Reality blog is also fairly vocal on the subject.

Yesterday I posted a genuine opportunity for a writer for an internship. Danny and I are perfectly capable of doing the writing ourselves, but thought someone might find it beneficial. We’re also offering to help them in their own blogging. Win-win. How much more generous and helpful I do not know that I could be.

Then, today I received this message (on my intern post), from someone who continuous leaves incoherent (and sometimes inappropriately sexual messages for me) :

hello there.. plz click on my profile and click the UNFOLLOW button

Certain Keywords Give Him Away

Please to remove hand from pants and close 4chan Yuri board before reading our humble comment.

We did this. We’ll do another, similar one soon. Maybe Sunday. Maybe next week. We act where and when we choose.

This operation has thus far been both flawless AND a roaring success.

Flawless:

Who the fuck did this? Nobody knows. No faggotry, no registered domain that can be attacked, just a Twitter account created with a temporary email account and accessed via an anonymous service. You can Google that shit till your fingers bleed, it means nothing. Torrent seed source means nothing, torrent seed distribution methods were a muddle, torrent content had 800+ seeds when we stopped paying attention.

The targets now have a MASSIVE security problem.

A serious recon tool was applied to their domains. What else might a source this disciplined have done? Gotta assume the worst – guess they are planning to or already have spearfished multiple targets in and around each domain. We didn’t, of course, but given the level of attention this will bring someone less upstanding than us will have a go at it.

The documents were public domain. We didn’t slip anything secret into the mix. We didn’t edit anything. The contents went straight from Foca’s search function into a directory with the Foca project file, they got wrapped up in TrueCrypt, and seeded. This is still a DISASTER for them, because we put one tiny roadblock between netroots activists and union organizers. Enough of them have already sorted out how to mount a TrueCrypt file and they’ve got 1,800 documents all in one place. People who would never have dug through those sites manually are now reading item by item, and they’re going to find things those organizations NEVER wanted the world to know.

Roaring Success:

Massive DailyKos and Reddit coverage. Articles popping up in the online trade press. Print journalism nosing around to find out if this is a story. If our second release is as successful as the first they will have no choice but to cover this series of events.

People who would have never used TrueCrypt now have it and see how simple it is. Foca has a steep learning curve for full application, but a researcher who just wants all documents from a given domain? That’s trivial. If 800 people got the full download and just 1% of them give up Farmville and start playing Foca instead that’s a permanent nightmare for the three targets AND every other entity like them.

Three domains with 1,800 documents, almost all of which need metadata scrubbing. Dozens of content producers not hip to creating public data that has had the private stuff scrubbed. Servers both public and private as well as all desktop/laptops are now suspect due to broad coverage of what might have been an intense recon operation. How much is it going to cost them to ensure they’re safe? Security consultants, audits of everything, burdensome new procedures, staff training, expensive software updates.

The technology used is simple, we committed no crimes in this matter, but we have turned a million candlepower spotlight on these three entities at a time when the policies they conceived are getting governors recalled in more than one state. This is attention they could ill afford if the world was otherwise quiet. It is not.

Massive Anonymous bonus points accrued – put Barrett Brown to work but he has no idea who we are. Didn’t show up in IRC, ignored tinychat bait, no phone numbers, no email, just one dead end Twitter account that’ll get deleted within a week at the very most.

And namefags, famefags, ircfags, etc are all butthurt and claiming we’re not really Anonymous because, well, we’re *anonymous*.

Ironic lulz are ironic.

Sounds like someone’s admitting to something. Huh Cory?

Legal Notice

Dear Mr. Hoge:

As Section 3-803 of the Maryland Criminal Law Code allows for a person to make such a request on behalf of another, I am officially and legally asking you to cease and desist all harassment of William M. “Bill” Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, Maryland. This includes referring to Mr. Schmalfeldt by such derogatory and defamatory “nicknames” as “Cabin Boy” or “Oedipal Bill” or anything other than his actual name. This includes the filing of any additional frivolous charges against him. Mr. Schmalfeldt can not preclude you from writing about him, but he considers derogatory nicknames, especially when they are spread by your followers all over the Internet, to be a textbook definition of harassment. Also, as all your previous criminal charges against Mr. Schmalfeldt have been dismissed by the Carroll County, Maryland, State’s Attorney, but…

The Best ARG Neal Post Ever!

“I don’t think this is an ARG. I think this person is genuinely crazy”

They are, of course, speaking about Neal Rauhauser bringing his unique brand of crazy to an ARG ( Alternate Reality Game) forum. It spews the usual line of nonsense, including crimes that even we didn’t know we were guilty of at the time.

Still not imprisoned for, either.

Alternate reality? Neal? Hrmph……

Enjoy.
