Anonymous declares war on marijuana prohibition

They’re calling the next steps of their process Phase 2. Phase 2 involves organizing marches in support of medical cannabis in as many locales as possible. There is another aspect of the plan—and it something more controversial. The group will reveal the identities and real motives of the “narco-warriors”. According to Anonymous, narco-warriors are the men, women and groups that benefit from keeping medical cannabis illegal.

Anonymous will expose them to the public.

Trying to show they’re still dangerous and relevant after getting thoroughly rogered by the FBI and CIA last month, Anonymous has announced that on March 31st, they plan on DDoSing the shit out of the world’s 13 DNS servers, shutting down the internet.

Is Anonymous creating its own OS? And why?

While Anonymous’ main operations include DDoSing the shit out of websites they don’t like, periodically, they dabble in Anon-themed side projects. The latest appears to be an Anon operating system, but the question is why? And why would anyone use an OS built by Anonymous, even if you were one of them?

Not surprisingly, former LulzSec leader was a douchebag online and in real life

Former LulzSec leader Hector “Sabu” Monsegur doesn’t have a whole lot of friends these days after he turned against LulzSec and Anonymous to save his own ass, but even before his identity became known to the outside world, he apparently wasn’t very popular with his neighbors, either.

How Anonymous may be planning on using DNS as a weapon

The takedown of LulzSec and several key Anon members has weakened some of Anonymous’ operations, but it’s also served to piss them off even further. Right now, their main weapon are DDoS attacks, but in the future, there are rumors that they may be trying to figure out how to use DNS— probably the biggest weakness in the current structure of the internet— as a weapon. A very nasty weapon.
