Cyber Attack on US Banks is an Obvious False Flag – Well DUH!!!

In recent news we have been blasted with all the sorted details of the American banks which have had their websites attacked by hackers but…… With Obama on the cusp of signing his executive order to control the Internet, we can rest assured this is just another false flag and it’s probably been in the works since SOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act) failed to be passed.

I ask you, do we not have enough control over our lives already? Do we need more government agencies to watch more of what we are doing? Do we need even more spying on us? My God, enough already!

Are we expected to believe that sophisticated Muslim hacktivists attacked US banks because they were angry about a movie that was produced in America?  That’d be like attacking Afghanistan or Iraq after 15 Saudis supposedly attacked us, ohh wait…that did happen.

Is this really the best story they can come up with?  It was so predictable that it makes it that much more laughable. But the motive being pinned on the pathetic anti-Muslim movie is the real kicker.

It’s sad to see Richard Clark in the video above actually take this seriously.  Talk about an establishment sellout.

I call major bullshit on this story.  It stinks to high heaven.  What do you think?

Want proof? Well here you go! The F.B.I shut down the DNSChanger servers back in July 2012. With this, they cut off internet access to an estimated 300,000 computers worldwide which were infected with software which essentially took control of them and used them for cyber crime. The lay term is “zombie computers” and these things were being used to continue to spread the malware, to steal all kinds of personal information and you guessed it… To engage in Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS)  attacks which is what has supposedly been happening to some US banks websites.

Basically what a DDOS attack does is flood the banks computer systems with requests for information. Say you have a phone and 5,000 people all begin repeatedly dialing your number. That phone will be ringing off the hook right? Well that’s basically how this type of cyber attack works. The banks servers (the computers that manage their websites) are simply receiving so many “pings” (requests for information) that they become overloaded and hence they slow down or even crash.

Having worked on the back end of a server before I can tell you that there are ways these kinds of things can be thwarted. It involves you actually looking at your logs to see what IP addresses are sending the requests and then blocking them. I realize that on a small scale that wouldn’t take long but come on; their banks for crying out loud!

Basically what I’m saying is that the banks could have done more about this, if it even happened. It seems like this came at the perfect time to push the people of America in to finally agreeing with the US government to spy on us more via the internet and seems to lend credibility to President Obama signing his new executive order. It’s all a little “too perfect” for me to stomach……

Bust Reveals Government Runs Hacking Groups

I think a lot of us had hoped that LulzSec and Anonymous were working for the good of “the people” but in the back of my mind I’ve always wondered if it was all just a front for the government. Looks like that nagging feeling may have been spot on…..This sucks!

The establishment media has characterized the leader of LulzSec ratting out his hacktivist comrades as betrayal, but the incident reveals something far more sinister – government is responsible for creating and unleashing computer hacker groups.

Anonymous

Hector Xavier Monsegur, said to be the leader of LulzSec, worked for the FBI, according to news reports. He was reportedly arrested in Puerto Rico last June, pleaded guilty to hacking charges, and then began working with the FBI – or so the cover story would have it.

Monsequr, aka Sabu, decided what targets to attack and who would participate in the attacks, more than likely at the direction of this FBI handlers. It is believed he participated in the Anonymous effort to hack HBGary, the security firm that works closely with the CIA, NSA, FBI, and the Pentagon.

Sabu’s Lulz Security, commonly abbreviated as LulzSec, claimed responsibility for taking the CIA website offline. It also attacked Fox News, PBS, Sony, and a number of gamer sites. LulzSec claims to have hacked local InfraGard chapter sites, the organization affiliated with the FBI, and released the emails and passwords of a number of users of senate.gov.

LulzSec and Anonymous attacks have provided the government with an excuse to push their cyber security agenda and propaganda campaign, including the proposal for a “kill switch” that would have allowed Obama to shut down the internet (due to public outrage, the proposal was dropped from a House bill in February).

Government and corporate groups cited LulzSec and Anonymous lawlessness last June to push the so-called Protect IP Act (known as PIPA). The introduction of a House version of the bill, dubbed SOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act), was met with public outrage and widespread activism that forced Congress to reconsider the legislation.

In October, Mother Jones revealed that the FBI is notorious for creating supposed terrorist groups from scratch and then framing patsies in order to claim the government is protecting the United States from terrorists and also breathe life into an otherwise moribund war on mostly nonexistent terrorism.

Sabu’s role as an FBI provocateur working inside LulzSec reveals the government is attempting to do the same in order to push its so-called cybersecurity agenda. The establishment is eager to pass a raft of legislation to closely regulate the internet, strip the medium of its anonymity, and close it down as an activism and alternative media tool.
