Free Palestine . . . We will not go down..Freedom is ourgoal. .// End the Occupation. . . . .
To the ignorant observer Israel may appear modern, vigorous and democratic largely thanks to the outrageous bias in Western media and the $$$ whores whom have become our leaders...now wake up!!!
REALITY: Israel is and will always be a racist murderer, a child abuser, a child killer, a thief, a compulsive liar, a financier of genocide, an exporter of Terror and a haven for sick perverted traffickers of desperate, vulnerable and naive little girls and young women from Eastern Europe - Essentially a Middle East perverteddespot hell bent on recreating the nightmare of Nazi Germany!
When the World gaveup their sons and daughters to rid us ofthe menace of Nazism, before the ink had barely dried on the numerous peace agreements and as our leaders in a mass orgy of grief and regret uttered the words 'never again', the UN was putting the final touches to creating THE Nazi state par excellence!
Shame on the world and all her people who support this abomination masquerading as a nation state!

Sacramento websites hacked for PALESTINE

VIDEO OF DEFACE BELOW


SACRAMENTO, CA - The city of Sacramento took down their websites after they were hacked early Sunday morning.
Maurice Chaney, Sacramento spokesman, said the city didn't learn about the affected sites until 8:30 a.m. They responded  by taking down the websites that included the city of Sacramento main site, parks and recreation and convention center sites.
The city took the hacker's signature offline and sent several employees to troubleshoot the sites and get them back up.
The hacker reportedly wrote, "Hacked by El_mhuammed. This Turkish hacker."
A website by that name brought up on Google contains strongly anti-Semitic views and demands an end to Israel's blockade of Palestinian people.
It was not clear if the hacker left anything but his signature.
One cyber security expert says attacks like these are nearly endless, may come from almost anywhere, and can be very difficult to stop.
Security expert Mark Heckman said the city may also have been very fortunate the damage wasn't worse."If somebody leaves you a calling card and says, 'Hey, I hacked your site,' you've dodged a major bullet because the most dangerous type of attack is where they break in quietly, leave a little bit of code so they can keep track of everything you do, perhaps steal passwords or other financial information without you even knowing - and that can be like that for years and you'd never know," said Heckman.
The city websites are routinely monitored and that is how the city was made aware of the hack. They are now figuring out how the sites were infiltrated so they could get them back up as soon as possible. They have not found the motive behind the hack.

More than 750 Israeli websites hacked in recent hours. Among them: Soldier’s Treasury Bank, Rambam Hospital, and Globus Group ticket center. Hackers: You’re killing Palestinians, we’re killing servers

Unprecedented number of Israeli websites hacked: Hundreds of websites were damaged by hackers in recent hours, following IDF activity in the Gaza Strip. The hackers are members of the Moroccan “Team Evil” group, responsible for most of the website damage in Israel in the past year. This is the largest, most concentrated attack on Israeli websites in recent years.

A Ynet investigation revealed that more than 750 Israeli websites, on a number of different domains, were hacked into and damaged in recent days. Prominent among them were the Soldier’s Treasury Bank, Bank Hapoalim (not the main page), Rambam Hospital, the Society for Culture and Housing, BMW Israel, Subaru Israel, Jump Fashion, non-profit organization “Yedid,” Kadima’s youth website, and the Globus Group ticket center. Many of these sites have not yet returned to normal.

Hackers left the message: You’re killing Palestinians, we’re killing servers.

Early on Wednesday, the IDF began operation “Summer Rains” in Gaza: Forces entered the southern end of the strip, adjacent to the

point of Cpl. Gilad Shavit’s kidnap. The air force attacked a power station and blacked out areas of Gaza. Three bridges were bombed in central Gaza, in order to prevent movement of the kidnapped soldier.  
Many Israeli websites are hacked every day – most of these are small sites, with inadequate information security. It is significantly different when the sites are ones of large companies, who have adequate defenses from this sort of attack.

Past success of Team Evil

In the past, Team Evil succeeded in hacking into several sites of medium-sized but recognized Israeli companies. In April, they hit tens of sites, including those of the “Shilav” children’s store, “The Blue Square” supermarket and McDonald’s.

The group’s spokesman previously told Ynet that “we are a group of Moroccan hackers that hack into sites as part of the resistance in the war with Israel. We attack Israeli sites every day. This is our duty…hacking is not a crime.”

Added another group member: “We want Israel to stop fighting. Stop killing children and we’ll stop hacking.” According to the spokesman, the group’s members are all Moroccan youths, under the age of 20.

The increase in hacking of websites following military operations is a well-known phenomenon, in Israel and in the rest of the world. A similar increase was seen in attacks on both Israeli and Arab websites in the first days of the second intifada, pursuant to military operations that took place in Gaza, Judea and Samaria at that time.

On Wednesday, the National Cyber Command (NCC) and the Counter Terror Bureau (CTB) launched Israel's first official cyber emergency drill

The drill, dubbed "Lights Out," will span several days and aims to test readiness and contingencies vis-à-vis a wide-spread, multisource cyber terror attack on Israel's vital infrastructure systems

UPDATE 





Hi
It’s 0xOmar from group-xp
I don’t like what Hannibal did. The fucking bad Jewish hacker.
Game just started (Hannibal lost already, let give you another lesson that you are easily defeatable)[sic]
Haha!
0xOmar’s latest move in taking over a Pastebin account brings the exchange of blows to a bizarre and personal level.
With attacks growing among Arab and Israeli hackers, dragging more countries,including Iran, into the fray, and with the massive attack launched by Anonymousfollowing the Megaupload takedown, digital identify theft and destruction has never been as big a threat as it is today.
The politically flavoured attacks that we’ve witnessed over the past month in the Middle East could be a forebearer of  much worse things to come.
0xOmar’s attack on Hannibal’s account does indicate a somewhat juvenile or jokester mindset, and when combined with political elements which are far more confidential than a Pastebin account, it’s simply a recipe for disaster.

Twitter website struck by 'Iranian Cyber Army' hackers

A hacking group calling itself the "Iranian Cyber Army" pulled off a coup for about an hour earlier today, redirecting visitors to the Twitter website to a page containing a green flag and Arabic writing:


Fortunately there is no indication at this point that the page was carrying malicious code, and this attack appears to have had political motivations rather than being designed to steal confidential information from users.
Of course, just because a message saying
This site has been hacked by Iranian Cyber Army
has beeen posted on a webpage does not necessarily mean that hackers from Iran are responsible for the defacement.
However, Twitter was widely used earlier this year by those wishing to share information about anti-government protests in the country earlier this year, and rumours spread in July that planned maintenance on the site was delayed to allow Iranians to continue to share information from inside the country as citizen journalists commented on the controversial election result.
Another part of the message read:
The USA thinks they control and manage internet access, but they don't. We control and manage the internet with our power, so do not try to the incite Iranian people.
Biz Stone of Twitter has posted a brief blog entry explaining that Twitter's DNS records were compromised by an unauthorised party, meaning that anyone who tried to visit Twitter.com were instead taken to a third party site.If that's right then it means that Twitter's own servers weren't necessarily breached by the hackers.
DNS records work like a telephone book, converting human-readable website names like twitter.com into a sequence of numbers understandable by the internet. What seems to have happened is that someone changed the lookup, so when you entered twitter.com into your browser you were instead taken to a website that wasn't under Twitter's control.
Just imagine what could have occurred if they had pointed people to a phishing site posing as Twitter (designed to steal login names and passwords) rather than a political message.
The question now is how did the hackers manage to change the DNS records for twitter.com? Could it be that cybercriminals managed to guess the passwords used to secure access to the information, and log in as though they were the administrators of Twitter's DNS records.

CYBER WAR WITH ISRAEL IS NOTHING NEW

During the early days of CAST LEAD some of us put two and two together something was brewing talking to some journalists in Khan Yunis via skype troops were amassing and drones were heard overhead . Rumours of warnings been given to american journalist had rattled them as the americans one by one started to depart , one was quoted as  saying "HEAD OFFICE TOLD ME TO GET MY ASS HOME BEFORE I WAS FIRED FULL PRESS WITHDRAWL OF ALL AMERICAN NEWS GROUPS. Christmas was boring me this year so I decided to grab a movie download so while using a back door in a well known  file sharing program which will remain nameless to root about in the hosts computer checking the ip was strange i discovered i was in the pc of a us soldier who'd set up an ahoc network to share movies which are sent to them pre release . I promptly  installed a keylogger just for the hell of it , i went off to get dinner an hour later i came back on my desktop had appeared one side of a 3 sided conversation . In his gung ho american twang i imagine he laughed as he bellowed" israel going to level palestine my buddy in comms just picked up the commands israels gonna wipe some muslim butt tonite bro huuurrray" . For what seemed like an enternity they mercilessly slaughtered women and child ethnically cleansing gaza while the world kicked stones and celebrated christmas . Watching the news nothing sky bbc ch4 nothing vague reports then watching al jazerra i learned what i had read was taking place and no one  gave a fuck , WRONG .

THE BELOW WHERE RESPONSES TO THE ONSLAUGHT OF CAST LEAD 5 DEDICATED KEYBOARD
COWBOYS CREWS  CLOCKED UP THIS TALLY FROM LATE 2008 – EARLY JAN 09 WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN 



Calling themselves the Palestinian Mujaheeds, hackers who posted a rant against Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip have defaced the Jewish Chronicle Web site over the weekend. They managed to upload an image of the Palestinian flag alongside diatribes against Israeli security policy. The hacked home page of the site also attempted to play an MP3 file.
Following the attack on Sunday, the website was taken offline for repairs but returned today with a story on the attack, downplaying the significance of the admitted breach.
The site's webmaster said that "only those without the confidence to win an argument resort to such tactics. And it was a pretty self-defeating attempt to silence us. Our site was down for a few hours, but as a result we will get more readers than ever before."
Based in London, the Jewish Chronicle is the world's longest-running Jewish newspaper. "Only thejc.com site was affected. None of the other 'sister' servers handling the archives, e-paper, social and personal, debating and MSFL sport were infiltrated," the paper reports.
Attackers using the same Palestinian Mujaheeds nickname also hacked an Israeli weather website, www.israelweather.co.il posting their name on parts of the site that would normally display weather satellite images instead.

It didn't take long after Israel's bombing of Gaza began for cyberwarfare to erupt as well: More than 300 Israeli Websites over the past few days have been hacked and defaced with anti-Israeli and anti-U.S. messages in an online propaganda campaign, a security expert says.
Gary Warner, director of research in computer forensics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, warned in his blog that U.S. Websites should be prepared for similar attacks. "In the current situation, the hackers supporting Gaza clearly believe Israel AND the US are culpable. That means American webmasters may wish to be especially vigilant right now," Warner blogged.
The attacks on Israeli sites occurred within a period of 48 hours, in what Warner calls a "Propaganda War."
"As soon as Israel started bombing Gaza we began to look for signs of a cyber response. And we've found it, in the form of more than 300 Israeli websites which have been defaced with anti-Israeli and anti-US messages," Warner blogged.
He says these types of propaganda Website attacks are all about location, not size or prominence of the targeted site. "It only matters WHERE the Website is," he says.
Website propaganda defacements are nothing new. In 2001, Chinese hackers hit tens of thousands of U.S. Websites with messages blaming the United States after a Chinese fighter jet and a U.S. Navy plane collided. More recently, Israel's bombing of Lebanon in 2006 was the topic of defacements of U.S. sites.

Summary: In the wake of the escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas, it didn’t take long before pro-Hamas supporters organized themselves and started to defacing thousands of pro-Israeli web sites in order to use them as vehicles for propaganda — Israel is meanwhile hijacking TV signals. For the time being, pro-Israeli sites remain automatically probed for web [...]



Israel Hamas Web Site DefacementsIn the wake of the escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas, it didn’t take long before pro-Hamas supporters organized themselves and started to defacing thousands of pro-Israeli web sites in order to use them as vehicles for propaganda — Israel is meanwhile hijacking TV signals.
For the time being, pro-Israeli sites remain automatically probed for web application vulnerabilities through search engines reconnaissance of the Israeli web space by JURM-TEAM and TEAM-Evil, two groups working together and using identical templates for the defaced sites.
Israel Hamas Web Site DefacementsCompared to previous hacktivism (politically motivated hacking)  activities on behalf of this group consisting primarily of mass web site defacements through web applications vulnerabilities exploitation, last week TEAM-Evil managed to hijack the DNS records of several hundred Israeli domains —traffic was redirected to bestsecurity.jp — once compromising the administration panel of the domain registrar DomainTheNet.
Members of Team-Evil are no strangers to Israel. The group has been periodically attacking pro-Israeli web sites since 2006. Who are Team-Evil anyway?
Israel Hamas Web Site DefacementsOriginally started as a Moroccan-based hacking group of Muslim hackers, today thanks to the group’s popularity, they’ve managed to not only recruit more hackers/script kiddies, but also, gain the support of other Muslim hacking groups. The group’s efficient way of exploiting Israeli and pro-Israeli web sites through commodity web site defacement tools scanning and exploiting known web application vulnerabilities reached such a peak, that a 17 years old member of Team-Evil got busted. In the ongoing web site defacement attacks, several other well known Muslim hacking groups appear to be working directly cooperating with Team-Evil, such as:
  • JURM-TEAM - members include sql_master, Jurm, Dr.Noursoft, RedDoom, Lpooxd, Cyb3rt and Dr.win
  • Islamic Cr3w - members include Twister and AlH7N00TY
  • TEAM SPECIAL AGENT - members include PrOf-HaCkEr,Black^Monster, FREEM@N, and R00t-Os
  • Team-Evil themselves - members include Jurm, Cyber-terrorist, J3ibi9a, Scritpx, Fatna Bant Hmida
Israel Hamas Web Site DefacementsIt’s important to point out that the massive web site defacements taking place are not rocket science, they are the low-hanging fruit made possible for them to abuse due to insecurely configured web servers. Interestingly, according to one of the messages left on the defaced sites, a separate campaign is launched by the Hamas supporters in response to June, 2008’s defacement done by Israeli hackers of the arabs48.com portal.
Israel Hamas Web Site DefacementsHaving monitored the demise of international cyber jihadist hacking teams (Osama Bin Laden’s Hacking CrewAnsar AL-Jihad Hackers TeamHaCKErS aLAnSaR) attacking primarily Western sites, in comparison Israel, Palestine and their supporters are not going to give up that easily the propaganda capabilities that they’ve building since 2001 by means of web site defacements.
Some of the sites hacked include the Soldier’s Treasury Bank, Bank Hapoalim (not the main page), Rambam Hospital, the Society for Culture and Housing, BMW Israel, Subaru Israel, Jump Fashion, non-profit organization “Yedid,” Kadima’s youth website, and the Globus Group ticket center. Many of these sites have not yet returned to normal.

Hackers left the message: You’re killing Palestinians, we’re killing servers.

Megaupload Founder Kim Dotcom to Remain in Jail; Pink Cadillac, Art Seized


UPDATED 6.15 pm: Early in a protracted bail application - observed by the world's media - it looked as if Kim Dotcom and his three associates might be in with a chance of regaining some limited liberty.
But by the end of today's North Shore district court hearing - at which Judge David McNaughton reserved his decision, and remanded the Dotcom Four in custody until Wednesday - the scales appeared to have shifted against bail.
Crown law office lawyer Anne Toohey, on behalf of the US Government, argued vigorously against Mr Dotcom's equally persuasive Queen's counsel Paul Davison as punches ranged from the intricacies of short-barreled personal defence-style shotguns and whether he was ready to start up his "frozen" internet sites immediately, to Mr Dotcom's flight risk and his "collection" of some 35 credit cards in "multiple aliases."
Feverish activity continued behind the scenes out of court to provide ammunition as both sides thrust and parried - one on behalf of the mighty US government and the FBI, the other for the man US authorities accuse of being at the heart of the biggest intellectual property case of its kind in US history.
At one point two police arms officers came into court with a big paper bag containing an illegal short-barrelled found loaded in Mr Dotcom's "safe room," during last Friday's early morning armed police raids. A similar shotgun was found in accommodation used by Mr Dotcom's resident security boss Wayne Tempero. Judge McNaughton said he didn't need to see the firearm.
Bail applications from Bram van der Kolk, Finn Batato and Mathias Ortmann were not heard today. Judge McNaughton said he would deliver a reserved decision sometime on Tuesday.
The judge indicated that if he granted Mr Dotcom bail it would flow through to the other three and if he didn't they would remain in custody. 
Whatever decision Judge McNaughton makes it is likely to be appealed to the High Court.

UPDATED 4pm: Kim Dotcom and his three associates have been remanded in custody until Wednesday morning to allow Judge David McNaughton to deliver a detailed reserved decision on bail applications for all four men.
The judge has only heard the application for Kim Dotcom and has yet to make up his mind, but he’s indicated that what is decided for Mr Dotcom will apply to the other three defendants.
Much of the discussion in court late this afternoon was over the firearms found in Mr Dotcom's house: whether they are legal in New Zealand and how they were obtained. The seized shotguns, one of which was brought into court in a paper bag in case the judge wished to view it - he didn't  -, are known in the US as personal defence weapons for home security.

UPDATED: In a strong bail application, Mr Dotcom’s lawyer Paul Davison QC has said that the US government, including the FBI, have completely misunderstood the reality of Mr Dotcom’s business.
Mr Davison told the court the business did not involve the illegal downloading of copyright films, television series or music.
He says Mr Dotcom is not a flight risk, although he has access to helicopters and private jets and has passports in at least three nationalities under different names.
Mr Davison says Mr Dotcom would be prepared to submit himself to electronic bail (which allows a defendant to live at an approved community address, wearing an electronic anklet as part of their bail conditions, making it the pre-trial equivalent of home detention). He now has no assets to call on for surety or bond as all his assets have now been frozen.
Mr Dotcom’s primary intention now is to fight the allegations brought by the US government against him and any US government case against him will be contested.
After earlier being excluded from the court while the judge dealt with unrelated matters, media were readmitted to hear the bail argument of Mr Dotcom. The three other defendants are yet to make their cases.
Inside man
Mr Davison has revealed that the day before the police launched a dawn raid last week, a police officer called at the Chrisco mansion to discuss security matters with one of Mr Dotcom’s security advisers. He said the officer carried with him a concealed camera disguised as a pen that he used to take photographs around the property, presumably to identify any potential escape routes.
Two helicopter loads of armed offender squad members landed in the mansion courtyard and when Mr Dotcom was confronted by them banging on doors he became frightened and fled to the safe room where the police found him.
The lawyer for the US govt said Mr Dotcom was found four metres from a loaded illegal shotgun, one of two found on the premises.
The US government opposes bail pending the application for extradition because Mr Dotcom is considered to be a top end flight risk and has a high risk of re-offending.
Mr Davison countered this saying there’s no chance of reoffending as all the sites have been shut down, Mr Dotcom has no ability to restart the business and has no interest in doing so until all the allegations are sorted out.
Mr Davison says Mr Dotcom has spent millions of dollars on legal advice that said everything in his business is legal.
Two more arrests
Two other men, sought by the FBI over the case, have been located. The court heard that Sven Echternach (39) a German citizen described as head of dotcom’s business development was found in the Philippines but had returned to Germany and could not be extradited to the US.
Andrus Nomm a 32-year-old Estonian had been arrested in the Netherlands.
The US government has 45 days from last Friday (the day of arrest) in which to make their application for extradition. So far no application of evidence for extradition has been filed in a NZ court.
Because of the urgency of the matter, and while a decision on bail will be made soon, in view of today’s timing (in that the judge has to also hear the other three bail applications) it’s possible any decision on bail may not be made until tomorrow.


After considerable delays this morning, a District Court judge took the unprecedented step in removing media from the public courtroom where the bail application of the Dotcom Four will be heard.
The dotcom four are Megaupload.com founder Kim Dotcom (aka Kim Schmitz) and three others accused of copyright infringement, money laundering and racketeering by the US Justice Department who were arrested by NZ police on Friday and remain in custody.
District Court Judge David McNaughton, clearly agitated by what he referred to as last week’s “media circus”, allowed members of the public to remain in the courtroom at the North Shore District Court, a small room with inadequate facilities for the public or the media to be present.
There were a number of delays this morning but in a move which appeared to be fuelled by exasperation, Judge McNaughton took the unprecedented step of ordering all media out of his courtroom while he dealt with other unrelated cases, in a court open to ayone other than reporters.
NBR veteran court reporter Jock Anderson was shouted down by the judge when he asked why he was ordering media out of the court but letting the public stay.
When Anderson asked the judge if he would give his reasons for ordering the removal of the media, a big court security officer and burly female policewoman bore down on Anderson, telling him to get out.25 Jan 2012 :  The websites of the Departments of Finance and Justice went offline for an hour early this morning in a suspected cyber-attack. The Swedish arm of hacktivist collective Anonymous has been fielding questions via Twitter about the incident and refused to confirm its involvement, despite retweeting a warning late last night that 'OpIreland' was about to take place. It also hinted that the groups preferred method, distributed denial of service attacks, would be used.
Another tweet from the account @youranonnews said "Ireland has angered the hive" and linked OpIreland to OpMegaupload - a separate action aimed at defending Megaupload co-founder Kim Dotcom, currently under arrest in New Zealand pending extradition to the US for his role in the popular file-sharing website (since taken offline).
