Sarah Palin Claims Site Hacked, Credit Card Details Stolen, But Doubts Surface This Is Merely Attempt At Attention Whoring

Tyler Durden's picture


Operation Payback has supposedly taken its latest victim: Sarah Palin, who previously called for the execution of Assange, has had her site hacked, and her credit card details taken. Her take: "No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics,” Palin
emailed. “This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and
speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts." Frankly, we very much doubt anyone, let alone a sophisticated hacker network, would bother with someone of Palin's "intellectual" capacity and significance, and would actively demand that she produce her serverlog (assuming she knows what this is) to confirm the fact, as many have already voice a suspicion this is just the latest attempt of the vice presidential candidate pathetically whoring for yet more media attention.

From ABC:

The website and personal credit card information of former Gov. Sarah Palin were cyber-attacked today by Wikileaks supporters, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate tells ABC News in an email.

Hackers in London apparently affiliated with “Operation Payback” – a group of supporters of Julian Assange and Wikileaks – have tried to shut down SarahPac and have disrupted Sarah and Todd Palin’s personal credit card accounts.

“No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics,” Palin emailed. “This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts.”

Palin has criticized Wikileaks founder Assange, writing on Facebook that his “past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders?...Assange is not a 'journalist' any more than the 'editor' of al-Qaeda's new English-language magazine Inspire is a 'journalist.’ He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands."

Added SarahPAC aide Rebecca Mansour, “the governor voiced her opinion knowing full well that she was speaking out against a shady disreputable organization with no regard for laws or human life. This is how they operate. The world should not be intimidated by them." technical aides say that on their server log this morning it showed the attacks coming from a browser identified as, though it has since spread to others entitled "anonymous." Mansour added that Wikileaks supporters claim to be “in favor of free
speech yet they attack Sarah Palin for exercising her free speech.” She
said was not harmed because Palin’s staff was able to move
quickly to protect the site.

The attacks were coming from Are these people seriously that bloody stupid?

PROTECTION DISCUSSION fyi some practical things to know:

i have a COMCAST 20meg connection, as an Internet client who has been repeated attacted, continued DAILY in various configurations of attacker ways/means, and various defensive configurations/operating systems, hardward, and anti-intrusion/anti-virus software...AND HAVE LEARNED A LOT, that i would like to share with ZH readers....

1) yes, i have REALLY been attacked in a manner usually reserved for large companies, government agencies, etc...not for money, not for me being 'important', but probably just because i am 'fun to mess with'...i keep coming back, no matter what...harddrives 'wiped clean' (not merely erased)
and new O/S reloaded (without bothering to 'microsoft-activate' anymore, not when that 'clean load' will be knocked down in 1 hour or less...that includes ESPECIALLY MICROSOFT o/s 7...'THEY get lots of fun showing me how quickly THAT can be taken out...'

2) yes, i have 'implemented' every known 'retail version' of antivirus, including M/S VERY OWN...etc..nothing, NOTHING, ever detected!! nor stopped..

3) yes, i have/had implemented the M/S full-deal Professional Security Regime...REALLY...all the 'services' turned off, via msconfigure utility, for instance...and all the various 'local-security' options, and hiding the root/administrator, using only 'guest' or 'user' permissions

4) yes, i have/had/still do use a hardware firewall at the cable head (i REPLACED the COMCAST UNIT, at my own expense)
and limited the incoming ports to "80" and "443" only...out going ports, you must leave SOME of them the "1024-1048" region for YOUR initiated communications...and of course SHUT DOWN the NETBIOS ms bullshit at the ethernet port, and as a service...theres more..

5) yes, i purchased and studied MANY security books relating to both MS and UNIX/LINUx..and implemented MANy MORE 'security-loophole' closures...

6) yes, i FINALLY did 'sort of' 'overcome' the/these intruders, which is what i would like to convey HERE..

6a) i find that using the UBUNTU in the CD/DVD only memory resident TOTALLY operating system with SOME ADDITIONAL measures taken...ALLOWS ME TO CONNECT , with continuous external interference (bringing some download speeds to less than 50kilobits/sec on a line that will work at 2-20 megabits when nobody is DDServicing me.....HOWEVER I CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO USE THE INTERNET, WITHOUT THE BASTARD TEACHERS - TEACHING ME SOME LESSONS OF COURSE...the FINAL temporary solution...

6b) when UBUNTU is memory loaded/resident, usually there is NO security...its a 'demo' after all...however, you MUST CREATE a SECURE USER, protect the UBUNTU user (with near-root privileges), and protect the 'hidden' root users TOO

HOW TO DO: use 'passwd' to create the default 'Ubuntu' user must be STRONG = 14 characters or more, with the entire ensemble of IBM character-set (256 possibles, printable/not printable)...the only 'practical' non-printable is THE SPACE use numbers, symbols upper/lower case..use letters upper/lowercase..use about 25% of each 'set' = say 4 space bars randomly, 2 lowercase letters, 2 uppercase letters, 4 numbers, 4 symbols from set of upper/lower case...DO NOT USE ANY MECHANICAL SEQUENCE such as all the symbols from left to right, or any other easy to remember QUERTY physical must be HARD, and forget your "easy to remember" THATs from pre-year 2000 advise...

HOW TO DO: use 'sudo passwd root' from the Ubuntu terminal command line... and create the 'root' password...make it one character DIFFERENT from the Ubuntus passwd, so that the "hash" of that 'root password' is different...

HOW TO DO: Create a USER could be named 'USR' under system/ administration/users and groups...give this USER 'no privileges' and provide a different (shorter password, maybe just trunkate the 'root' by a few characters)..

HOW TO DO: then create a SOFTWARE FIREWARE within the Ubuntu
...from the command line, as user = Ubuntu "sudo ufw enable' (the ufw firewall enable)..."sudo ufw logging full" (ENABLES the ufw firewall log with FULL LOGGING TRACE), "sudo ufw default deny incoming" (the basic default will be to block all tcp/ip 'uninvited' incoming packets on ports 1-65435 ...more commands are available here FYI)

HOW TO DO: finally, NOW, YOU CAN CONNECT TO THE INTERNET, BUT NOT QUITE FINISHED..set your hardware firewall to packet size '256' bytes (seems radical, but slows unhindered thruput to about 50%, not bad)...AND set your 'edit connections ethernet/radio to '256' bytes, and no DHCP, burt rather MANUAL TCP/IP like on YOUR COMPUTER, and leave default hardware firewall at like, manually set you DNS at both firewall/computer..

NOW WITH ALL THIS DONE, you will not STOP the intruders if they are interested (want to play, 'teach you some more lessons') BUT THEY mostly mostly will NOT be able to disrupt your 'on-line-communications' to a 100%, just to 80% slowing of thru put, mostly DENIAL OF SERVICE PACKET FLOODING ATHT THE FIREWALL/COMCAST INTERFACE....which they will stop, once they see you've got the rest handled properly..

HOWEVER, sometimes, depending on THEIR interest, challenge level, a REAL INDUSTRIAL/NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY capable hacker/intruder will STILL get find 'locked processes, finally forcing you to reboot AND OF COURSE RELOAD THE ENTIRE OPERATING SYSTEM BACK INTO MEMORY...just about 3-5 minute however, so not bad..

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TRACE THE ACTUAL sucessful ATTACKING PACKET, THE REAL will be ONCE and not more than 100 bytes long..SO FORGET YOUR "snort" needs to be be, apparently, literally inside the hardware firewall, ath the first stages of decoding from COMCAST..

NO, COMCAST hasn't the slightest idea, what i am talking about, nor can i demonstrate it, nor have, apparently anyt others in my TCP/IP area complained...

YES, THEY CAN FIND you, by scanning the TCP/IP addresses in your area, they are all, by geographic area, and then finding your typical 'assigned IP'...and then finding your specific computer ID, used EVERYDAY BY ALL INTERNET CONNECTSS...http is not 'connectionless' but reiterates your address/computer ID for every screenfull...

YES, they can find you, even easier, with insertintg a 'cookie' on port '80/443' along with the http, etc..your computer will THEN DIAL BACK, as a kind of 'beacon' MAKING IT EVEN EASIER TO FIND YOU, but only if you are interesting enought to be worth 'hacking'...otherwise you are safe, security in anonyminity....millions of 'on line' computers, ll standard...

YES, they use 'ready made scripts', yes they find out your computer configuration ACPI/+startup ROM/flash...and then fetch from their existing databases, all they need to formulate on the spot the ideal 'single packet' intrusion...

NO, Microsoft is TOTALLY useless, and unfixable..UNIX is better, but only if you use its security, SELINUX and firewalls..AND BECAUSE IT IS NON-STANDARD, more difficult..but not for long...

So, for those interested...some ideas regarding REAL rather than 'pretend' computer security...all of those Microsoft antivirus systems, are TOTALLY USELESS, all the security features in MICROSOFT WINDOWS 7 PROFESSIONAL are totally useless...oh yah, the Cisco low-end firewall retail grade, for $200 is totally useless, i bought THREE of them and THEY BLEW OUT THE FLASHED PROGRAM ha ha aha...good thing there was a store warrantee...i returned each within ONE DAY...ha ha,

What the hell were you doing? Running a public webserver on Windoze? Or is this just outbound traffic?

Most incidents I see are self-inflicted. Lack of patching, default configs, default permissions, accounts without passwords, accounts with elevated privs, etc. Windoze can be resonably secured, you just have to use your mind to rather than the fecking wizards, and use a real firewall with IPS/IDS.

AV does not do shit to stop a directed attack on say a websever, if that is what was the target. Does not prevent directory traversals, priv escalations, SQL injections, and most importantly it does not prevent social engineering (a.k.a. PEBKAC).

You do realize that in order for a firewall to be effective, you do have to fully immerse it in water first, (power off, of course). then let it dry out completely and light 'er up. That should do the trick.

I see, so I think white people felt guilted into voting for Obama, therefore I am racist?

Funny how shallow your analysis is.  How do you even know what color I am, and why does that matter to you?  Racism is racism.  Why do you set white racism apart from any other form of racism?

I said white guilt because whites voted for Obama, and almost immediately regretted it.  Look at the polls.  Sorry if facts get your PCanties in a twist.

You couldn't be more wrong, Tarheel. The American public was given two people from which to choose. A large block of Obama supporters merely chose the lesser of two evils.

She's not an attention-whore.  She's a relatively sensible ex-urban woman who successfully became active in local politics.  It was McCain who had "attention whore by proxy" syndrome.  Prior to 2008, she'd done a lot with little money (cf. McCain). She won't run for president, but likely will keep people guessing so that she can help deliver the two-liver vote in 2012.  With a national media full of stage 4 attention whores, Palin barely indicates stage 3. I have to laugh, though.  She calls Assange's work "un-American." Hell, he's Australian, or was until he realized he's in exile now.

Yeah, the patriotic, flag-waving crowd is beside themselves over Assange. Here's a foreigner doing the real freedom kind of thing and showing how our government works behind closed doors, and they call him a traitor or terrorist, etc. Then they'll have a near religious experience talking about freedom, the Constitution, or (bow your head) the Founding Fathers. HAHA!

These folks are so confused about real freedom and afraid of it that they have no clue what it really is. To them freedom means you have the freedom to conform to mainstream, never had an original thought way of thinking, while they have the freedom to push around anyone who doesn't conform. But hey, wave the flag, unquestionably support any and all wars, believe there's a difference in the Dems and Rethugs, and stick out your chest and talk about freedom, It's the 'Merican way. Damn...I nearly shed a tear just writing about it.

That's so out there.  But the majority agree with the Wasilla Wildcat.  It will be Madame President in 2013 and the crowd at the inauguration will pick up the litter on the Mall when they leave.

Almost right. World Press Freedom Day is 3rd May. 

According to AFP: "The United States has announced plans to host World Press Freedom Day in 2011 as part of its efforts "to support and expand press freedom and the free flow of information in this digital age.""


Honestly, you could not make reality be any more of a tragi-comedy of horrors than in the irony-defining capital of the planet: Washington, where whatever they say is always the opposite of the truth.

How so easily we throw out the ability to think objectively when it concerns somebody we despise or dont understand.  I have looked over and over on multiple search engines to find where Sara Palin called for the assassination of Assange and I can't find it.


I see she says he should be hunted down like Osama Bin Laden and like the Taliban, but no where do I see a direct qoute from her calling for his death.  I see where the Canadian Tom Flanigan call for it but please show me where Sara Palin did?

she says he should be hunted down like Osama Bin Laden and like the Taliban, but no where do I see a direct qoute from her calling for his death..

When the US military hunts for the Taliban and bin Laden, do they use:

A.  Drones, missiles, bullets and bombs

B.  Subpoenas

C.  Butterfly nets

Unless you can dig up something where she says that she opposes killing OBL in the hunt for him, I submit that you're required by common sense to accede to everybody else's understanding of that proposition.  Everybody knows damn well the "hunt for OBL" is a dead or alive situation, preferably dead.  Even Hot Sarah knows that much.

I form my opinion on ever changing information and I have minimal issues with what Beck says although I am suspect and concerned about his supposed love and respect for our constitution while he frequently touts Palin.

   Whenever I watch his show I typically agree with his message but then I ask myself, "Why are you not inviting Ron Paul on your show weekly when he stands for everything you claim to admire" It gives me pause.

None of the above... he is a pathetic money whore (just like Palin). There are lots of those around... what takes them both to the "scum level" is the way they use the hate and racism (divide and conquer game) for personal gain.

OK Stevie Ray Vaugh fan (Based on the avatar). There is nothing hate like in any of Beck's broadcasts as a matter of fact it is usually the opposite. I agree with you that the media loves to create a divide so they can distract from economic issues but I have no problem with anyone seeking personal gain. That is capitalism and as long as it is not sought unfairly or through lobby interests altering rules for your benefit any way an individual makes their money is acceptable to me. He has fans..if they want to purchase his books that is their option. This whole hate speech rhetoric is more slant from those who oppose what he has to say because the man never has anything hateful to say let alone racist.

    Palin on the other hand is an opportunist. Now Michelle Bachman is my kinda gal.

  I will not dispute what you are saying.

Judge Nap is a libertarian, a frequent guest and Napolitano constantly has Ron Paul on his show for his views. I think very favorably of Napolitano.

Tmos, are employment insurance premiums not already automatically deducted from most paycheques? Is that not 'paying for their own employment insurance' in the most literal sense?

Seems to me that the unfortunate labourer who loses his job after ten years of service has far more of a right to at least some of the money he has paid into his employment insurance (or even just taxes) than the wealthy have to not pay taxes in the first place... 

Or were you being facetious again?

If you pay car insurance premiums, which you are legally obligated to do, and then make a claim when there is an accident, does that make you a 'freeloader'?

Why should employment insurance be any different? You can't claim it if you haven't worked (for it), ie paid into it, after all.

I would love to see stats that compare employment insurance paid vs.  claims made; I'd wager premiums take in more than insurance pays out.

Slowly turning his horse and the herd in the direction.....

Have you ever been in sales?    Here's a technique.

Feel,  Felt,  Found.

If you want to sell something to someone and they give you an objection,   You do something like this.

Customer:  It's Too expensive

Salesman:  I know exactly how you feel.  When they first showed it to me, I felt the same way.  <here you cite two or three things in the customers favor>   RIGHT? 

Customer: Ya.  <by this time you are standing Next to the customer with your arm around his shoulder>

SalesMan:  But I Found that if you look at it like this <show how it saves him money over time or some other favorable points to overcome the objection>   You can't afford NOT buying <nodding your head, arm around the shoulder> Right?

Customer: I guess you are right....

Beck is in the "I Felt the Same Way" point of the sale...  He's nodding,  His Base is nodding (Ya that's right) and has his arm around our shoulder, while whipping out the pen  and handing you the contract.

Watch Him John.  (btw, If you practice Feel, Felt, Found You can over come most objections and .....)

I believe though he is a moral man. I pride myself in being a supreme walking bullshit detector that has never failed which is why I am here on ZH. I believe he himself just does not comprehend how deep into the matrix we truly are. It did surpise me the other day to see him use that term and analogy specifically regarding " red pill vs blue pill"
I believe he and his researchers are learning. They use sites like ZH for material and education and men like Alex Jones and his passion for direction. It may very well be an attempt to get in front of a moment who's time has come but we consider ourselves the enlightened. Maybe collections of rational like Zero Hedge is finally running off on those who read it. There is minimal room for BS on this site.
Yes it is a corporate but the things coming out of his mouth for the last month are incredibly edgy. Yes...something is still off but I attribute that to ignorance. He is trying to learn.

John,  I have watched many times.  He DOES say the right thing 95% of the time.  My gut says don't trust him.   Yes he does bring up alot of material. 

I know he has a good sense of feeling the pulse of "What's happening",  He trys to get there first and talk about it so you say "Ya, That's What I was Thinking".

I get this vision of a cowboy riding fast during a stampede,  Going the same direction the herd is going,  then at the right time slowly,  slowly turning the stampede in the direction that he wants.

Why No Ron Paul indeed.  Why many things. 

My father said to me once, "Be wary of someone who gives you answers to questions you haven't asked."

My instincts tell me don't trust him even if at the moment he is riding his horse in the same direction that the herd is going.

Beck is a neocon shill, an empty swaggerer, a braggadocian if you will.  He had Debra Medina (Texas governor candidate, Ron Paul approved) on his talk show in spring and belittled and mocked her.  I realize people can change and I tend to agree with some of the things he says but as you say he hasn't had Ron Paul on his show. So I think Beck can fall in line to Ron Paul's thinking but that would mean he would have to be against war, the military industrial complex and I don't think he's anywhere close to that.

FaceBook and Twitter seem to be the pulpits of choice for Palin.  


When I vote for a president, I look for their ability to use emoticons while communicating. :)

News Flash>>>> Gingrich declares VP choice.... According to Newt, " The animaated bears have no political baggage. They are newcomers. They connect with "Real Americans" and I can't take my eyes off them."

I'd like to borrow your "When I vote" quote.

Yea, because single syllable slogans like, "Hope" or "Change" are sooo deep, maaaaan.

... I look for his or her ability.

To how many people does that statement refer?  Two.  One or the other.  Therefore, plural.  I look for their ability.

That is a common convention in writing when one doesn't wish to specifiy a gender and instead refers to both by using the word their.  I write that way, and many others do also.

Actually dont you look for their college transcripts and then move to their writings while the editor of the Harvard Law Review.. Sort of gives you a flavor for their motivations and thought processes prior to voting for them. Oh that's right you could not have done that, since bammy will not release them..  So who here cast their votes on feeeelings, whoooaaa  feeelings..

Economically speaking this site rocks, love it..  Politically, ummm not feeling it..
