Hackers Take Down Portuguese Parliament Website

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Update: It appears that Portugal is fighting a valiant battle, with the site back on and off intermitently.

LulzSec, which had been missing lately from the mainstream news, has struck again, this time with the site of the Portuguese Parliament. It is unclear just how the Portuguese pissed off the hacker collective, but as they say in trading floors when they want to get that pesky salesman off the line pronto "it is what it is." Link to a DDOSed Parliamento.pt here.

Sure.  That's how Jose Mourinho got his coaching job at Chelsea by putting his resume on monster.com.

FODAS!!

 

Not only do they use internet, but almost 100% have cell phones, seriously.

http://publicintelligence.net/ufouo-u-s-state-department-social-media-landscape-portugal/

  • Internet penetration in Portugal is estimated to be between 37%-42%
  • Mobile phones ownership is close to 100%
  • The vast majority of people access digital content through computers (87%), whilst 48% access via their mobile phones and 5% through gaming consoles

Where are the PUSSIES that were going to take down the NYSE a few weeks ago??

Children need to learn that when you highly advertise an event and tack a name of an organization with it, you need to deliver. I personally could have cared less if they did it or not; just follow through or STFU. Next time, do the deed first and then claim responsibility. They need to learn guerilla warfare, not lines of advertised muskets, exchanging volleys while the band plays...

Jesus Christ wept - if you were more fucking out of the loop you'd be a Neanderthal... oh. wait.

 

Some hints:

#1 NYSE 'hit' was talked about 9 months ago. Recent security checks showed that many systems were running on Win 98 [not XP, Win-MFing-98] and there's a whole slew of fucking retarded trader desks that are running on 98/XP etc that are so vulnerable to be a joke. You've not read about it because the "pussies" aren't looking to destabilise the Western Trading Desks. Shit, you fucking moron, even Symantec is running stories on how shitty trader tech is. Hint: You know when the TSA turns up, and posits that a terrorist with a smart nuke and James Bond skills "could kill EVERYONE" and you actually get a shitty lone madman with a car full of nitrates he can't blow up, or an empty pipe bomb attached to a clock?

Yep, you dumb mother-fucking shill, that's about the way you're looking at security cracks. Nuking your system (although possible) is not how #antisec computer cracking works. The trading software is fairly protected, but your average trade desks.. not so much. Which means that (LIKE ZH DOES) stories can be placed on your desk, 'pussies' can read your trade flows etc. The people you're talking about have been inside most trading systems for over 5 months now, reading the emails, and so on. Actual trade flows, HFT access and so on is possible [but very difficult], but why bother because that's legal [hmm- might want to check a certain HFT analyser featured here frequently] but given the hard line from NY <-> West coast is purely HFT / trading [hard-curbed / no access] then if you goal was to disrupt it, then the obvious choice is to go out there with some box cutters or employ hunter-type algos. And the only people doing that are... your competitors in HFT trading.

Same thing goes for the M1 UK exchanges or Italian / Swiss overland pipe. Exactly the same thing as why "Muslim Radicals" who blow up buses are fucking retards, whereas State trained counter-insurgents tend to cut power lines. Get it by now? Fucktard. If the aim was to "take down" trading, then it'd take 3-4 days, about 10 individuals with an accurate map and physical access and all fibre from the USA to Europe to Asia would be severed. It is called "Deus Ex #3".

#2 #Antisec have been consistently 'cracking' small time websites (mostly .gov) all over the world, as well as consistently getting USA police departments [local / state level]. Here's the thing, you fucking idiot: hacking the FBI / CIA / NSA isn't all that interesting, unless you crack the correct bit. There's about $78 billion dollars of fucking retarded bureaucracy, not to mention getting to stuff like payroll etc is a minefield of DBs - how the fuck do you think the DoD "loses" $2.3 trillion if their systems are streamlined? LOL. You'll see this when autistic UFO buffs from the UK hack your systems. What #antisec are actually interested in are emails, because these can flag up real time usage and embarrassing data. #Antisec aren't looking to do a snow crash, they're looking to highlight hypocrisy and illegality within the functioning system. They have never, and will never (due to #killswitch and wanting the net to function) look to the 'nuke from above' angle.

#3 Hmm. Guess you've no idea about the last #antisec stuff, and you're just a fucking troll.

 

ZZZzzz. Bored now. The fact you got +9 greens just shows the ignorance around here.

Just what the FUCK does your retarded rant have to do with the fact that the highly advertised "bring the NYSE to its knees" didn't happen? Did I say anything about other hacks? NO.It was like a kid saying "meet me in the parking lot after school so I can kick your ass" and not showing up.

 

A.) Stop whining and blow some shit up already

or

B.) STFU

Yeah, you got trolled by some 13 year old.

You don't get the whole #Anon op ideal, do you?

Just because a few #Anons post a video and a proposition, doesn't mean it will happen. In your world, I think the same can be said for retarded bills to congress that either get watered down into nothing, have insane riders put on them or get put forward precisely so that the next "less bad" version go through (*cough* SOPA *cough*).

 

In other words, you're ostensibly an adult reacting to children with no knowledge of the process barring a "OMG OMG OMG I READ ON THE INTARWEB THAT THEY WERE GOING TO KILL THE NYSE".

 

 

tldr;

 

You're a fucking idiot. "Blow shit up". Guess you didn't even read the bit about why physical take down isn't a goal. Oh wait.. nope, you're a paid shill. Now fuck off.

Cause a run on a large European bank and I'll be impressed, until then piss off.

The OCT 15 protests started this. Cops were causing trouble, blamed the protesters, false arrests, etc. Cops were exposed, nothing came of it. No justice...no peace.

Hacker groups like "LulzSec" and "Anonymous", who present themselves in these stylish videos announcing their planned actions are nothiung but frontgroups of the NSA.

 

The goal of these openly visible and much reported about false-flag hacker attacks is to provide an official justificaton for that WE NEED TO REGULATE INTERNET ACCESS and WE NEED TO DE-ANONYMIZE the internet.

 

Because FREE SPEECH and ANONYMITY are detrimental to erecting a SURVEILLANCE DICTATORSHIP.

 

Prepare for your implanted RFID chip !

Because the NWO types want it so.

The security holes are found in web applications even after testing and launch, security patch updates are frequent for widely used applications. It is often the job of web developers to keep applications up to date as security patches are released and new security concerns are discovered. Thanks.
