Chinga La Migra Bulletin #1:

We are releasing hundreds of private intelligence bulletins, training manuals,
personal email correspondence, names, phone numbers, addresses and passwords belonging to Arizona law enforcement. We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona.

The documents classified as "law enforcement sensitive", "not for public
distribution", and "for official use only" are primarily related to border
patrol and counter-terrorism operations and describe the use of informants to
infiltrate various gangs, cartels, motorcycle clubs, Nazi groups, and protest
movements.

Every week we plan on releasing more classified documents and embarassing
personal details of military and law enforcement in an effort not just to reveal
their racist and corrupt nature but to purposefully sabotage their efforts to
terrorize communities fighting an unjust "war on drugs".

Hackers of the world are uniting and taking direct action against our common
oppressors - the government, corporations, police, and militaries of the world.
See you again real soon! ;D

I cut the info off right there, but all the released names, addresses, emails, addresses and phone numbers for Arizona dps.gov are directly below where I cut off in the lulzsec releases.

anonymous is pretty busy, too.  This link will send you to their sign-up page.  You need an email and password.

These are dire times.  The government is no longer ours (i.e., what the democrats just did in breaking news in NJ).  We have a way out of this, but be ready.  Get off the grid and get self-sufficient.

“We are Anonymous.  We are Legion.  We do not forgive.  We do not forget.  Expect us.”

7:31 PM PT: I've been busy at anon, so been missing the lulz stuff.  This update is to let you know they might have hacked UK Census 2011 database a couple of days ago.

They did publish two informants' identities following the arrest of UK teenager Ryan Cleary.  I think that was today.

I'll keep publishing more news as I find it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Go after the corporate plutocrats: YES, I'll support that, I'll cheer for it, I'll do the Snoopy Dance when it happens.

    Go after LE and the military: Nope, I can't support that.  Releasing sensitive intel information related to Nazi gangs is not civil disobedience, it's like unlocking the gates to the state prison and letting the violent badguys run free.

            People have been suggesting taking your money out of banks for a long long time for a lot of reasons.

            I think the big reason they're urging people to do this is, it'll hurt banks. Another reason is you can't trust banks to safeguard you, and they've proven repeatedly "It's not our money they're stealing" is the mindset.

            Hopefully, the latest citi hack will yield fruit in the form of legislation that forces firms of all stripes to notify customers upon breach being confirmed instead of only when the customer notices money disappearing and has to contact journalists to get things set right.

      Doesn't have anything really enlightening from what I've seen of it so far. Mostly it's just pamphlets and such, the majority from a few years ago. It's embarrassing, yes but aside from a few copies of a couple of pieces of paperwork for incidents and the internal emails nothing earth shattering. It really looks like a random assortment of crap from the server consisting mostly of PowerPoint presentations, bulletins and such which are almost all out of date.

      As for the two informants, if I'm not mistaken that relates to the people who did a log dump and called it "intelligence" and gave it to the FBI. Which is little more than making a name for yourself because if the FBI wants irc logs, they just get them from the server or post a log bot in the channels.

      If I or someone stumbles across a list of field informants the cops were using, that would be one thing. So far the most damning thing I've seen were emails detailing how one officer seemed to be unwilling to face assailants in dangerous circumstances and put other officers at risk.

      Again, this is just embarrassing more than anything else which is par for the course for most of lulzsecs doins

      I don't think we have a lot of time to figure out how we feel about all the hacking going on.  We live in a chaotic and frightening world and everything has sped up lately.

      Contrary to popular belief, I don't think the hackers can be stopped.  They will do things we agree with and disagree with.

      Just last night, anonymous asked everyone to flood the websites at a specific time for Huffington Post, CNN and a couple of others.  Apparently it worked, because Rachel Maddow mentioned it.  I don't know why they did it.  For the lulz I suppose.

      But I do believe that we should prepare for a shutdown of the grid either by hackers, terrorists or the sun.

      Today there was a story about two guys who were arrested for a planned bombing of a Seattle military building.

        Two guys arrested for planning to bomb a military building in Seattle: that's conventional terrorism.   If I had to guess (educated opinion), I'd say either a self-proclaimed Al Qaeda cell or Nazis.  

        Cyberattacks: cyberwar, cyberterrorism, could be anyone; hostile foreign actors typically operate from Russia, China, and the Middle East.

        "The Smart Grid" is a huge target opportunity, and LE & intel are very much concerned about this, as we all should be.  You do not want your home appliances connected to the internet, regardless of what kinds of "convenient" features may be offered; some of the potential risks are fatal, and that's as close as I want to get to disclosing things I shouldn't.  

        That said, digital civil disobedience is not the same thing, even when it's high-stakes such as a cyber-sit-in (political DDOS attack) or cyber-exposé (hacking for publication).  The key distinction is: no destruction of property and no harm to persons.  (Causing a target to lose money is not the same thing as destroying property.  Bad weather can cause corporations to lose money, and they have to live with that whether they like it or not.)

          "The end of the Internet"

          The Internet routes packets of data from one Internet protocol (IP) address to another. Every Internet-connected device anywhere in the world has its own IP address.

          This month's World IPv6 Day served as a test run for a protocol that should dramatically increase how many devices can be connected to the Internet. The new protocol will be crucial if many more objects—including light bulbs, kitchen appliances, and environmental sensors—are to have IP addresses, connect to the Internet, and send and receive data.

            They don't want to actually watch you eat and watch you shit.   They just want the data about what you eat and when you shit, and when you sleep and every other damn thing you do.

            And the reason they want those data is so they can predict your behavior.   And the reason they want to predict you, is so they can control you.  

            As far as I'm concerned, that kind of panoptic surveillance would be a gateway into an unprecedented totalitarianism, and justifiable cause for armed revolution.

            Enough is enough, this has got to be stopped.

            This is shit I was told to not talk about, but I'm going to do it because I'm not under NDA for it, and I haven't been told it's classified, and in any case I don't have a clearance.

            One:  Biowarfare-By-Wire.

            During the day while people are at work, a terrorist virus causes millions of internet-connected home refrigerators to turn off for a few hours.  The temperatures rise to a point above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, where bacteria multiply rapidly.

            A couple of hours before people get home, the virus causes the fridges to go back to their normal cold temperature.  When the people get home their fridges are frosty cold.

            This happens for a number of days in a row, perhaps a few weeks, and nobody notices.    

            However, their food is going bad before its expiration dates.  They don't know it.   They eat the food.  They get sick.  They come down with various food-borne illnesses.   They go to the doctor or the hospital ER.  

            Very quickly it becomes apparent that there is an epidemic.... then a pandemic....  it's happening across the US and some people are predictably dying of these diseases.

            Now the CDC gets involved, and shortly Homeland Security gets involved.  They frantically try to track down the source of the contaminated food.  One thing after another is suspected as the cause.  When there is no coherent pattern, some kind of bioterrorism is suspected.  But noone thinks to look at the fridges, because they're accustomed to thinking of fridges as self-contained devices that can't be commanded to make food go bad.  

            And as a result, politicians clamor for even more surveillance and other draconian measures to stamp out the terrorists.  Meanwhile, the terrorists are laughing at the stupid Americans.

            Two:  Fire-by-Wire.

            This one gives "Firewire" a whole new meaning.  Your internet-connected coffee maker and toaster were such convenient high-tech ideas, and everybody had one so you had get one too.   It's nice to have your coffee and toast waiting for you when you stumble into the kitchen after four hours' sleep from working two jobs to survive.

            This time, a virus causes these appliances to turn on in the middle of the day, and overrides their internal thermostats, so they stay on.  They heat up.  They get hotter.  They get so hot they burst into flame.   Your house catches fire.  

            Dozens of houses in your subdivision catch fire at once.  Dozens of apartment buildings in the city catch fire at once.  Local fire departments are overwhelmed because they can't respond to all the fires in their districts at once.   Fires catch from one house to another, from one apartment building to another, and spread to engulf entire blocks, killing people as they go.    

            This happens in hundreds of suburbs and cities across America, all on the same day.  

            Meanwhile the guilty appliances have been consumed in the flames, so the evidence has destroyed itself.  

            And once again, politicians make noise about vast terrorist conspiracies, and press for ever more draconian surveillance and other measures.   And once again the terrorists laugh at the stupid Americans.  

            There's more where those scenarios come from.

            Washing machines in public laundromats can be made to misbehave in ways that contaminate your load with dirty water from the previous person's load, spreading disease.  Or merely provide inadequate rinses, so detergent residue remains in your clothing, causing rashes that look like infectious illnesses.  

            Cooking appliances in homes and restaurants can be made to misbehave to under-cook food, enabling more food-borne illness to spread.  

            Lightbulbs!  Who would have thought of internet-connected lightbulbs?!   Lightbulbs can be caused to flicker at the rate of the brain's alpha frequency, causing photosensitive epileptics to have seizures, some of which will also prove fatal.  

            All that and more.  Much much more.  Think of your home turning into a great big all-encompassing surveillance machine that can be turned into a multi-bladed weapon against you on command.  Not even science fiction anticipated this one.  

            Ask yourself this:

            Why on God's Good Green Earth, is it even remotely necessary to have every stinking little thing in your house connected to the internet, feeding information about you to some faceless corporate bureaucrat, selling the information about the most intricate and intimate details of your life to any bidder or buyer?  

            Why on God's Good Green Earth, is it even remotely necessary to rebuild our entire electrical infrastructure in a manner that makes it uniquely, overwhelmingly, and horrifyingly vulnerable to mass-destruction cyberattacks that will occur sooner or later?  

            What good does it do?  Does it really make your life better to be able to receive email at work from your fridge letting you know that your kid just ate some ice cream?  Does it really make your life better for your employer to get drug test results on you from your internet-connected "smart toilet"?  

            What could possibly justify all that shit?  

            And who among us is going to be smart enough, stubborn enough, and brave enough, to just say NO?

            "The new system allows for around 340 trillion, trillion, trillion addresses—nearly 50 octillion for every person on earth."

            FIFTY OCTILLION internet-protocol addresses for every person on Earth.  

            That's probably more than one IP address for every second of your life from birth to death.  One for everything you do, every move you make, every breath you take.  

            What the hell for, if not to track every second of your existence in detail?  

            What the hell for, if not to predict and control your every move, finally taking us to the dystopian version of B.F. Skinner's world Beyond Freedom and Dignity?

            As one of my characters in science fiction said about 25 years ago:  

            Why put a person in prison when you can put prison in the person instead?

              although some of those scenarios made me cringe, they're all to possible in our coming Brave New World.
              Next they'll be wiring up our IUDs and condoms, chipping our Cabernet, and peeping at us through our toothpaste tubes.

              Oh, and pee ess. Who told you not to talk about it? ;-^

                Nano-RFID in consumable food and beverage products is not out of the question either.  

                And there's another version of that, which I call "space dust" or "tracking dust," but that's for another day.

                Re. your last question, that item I really can't talk about, at all, except to say that they were not disclosing classified information to persons unauthorized to receive it.

                  Can you say OMG I had no idea.  I did wonder if the dvd players are providing info beyond what we're watching, but that's as far as I went.  I'm looking forward to reading your diary.  Glad to be of service.  If all I have to do is ask questions, I'm good at that.  I am in a game of ketchup, so it all helps.

                  Thank you.  And in my reply to Lisa, I forgot to say thank you.  So thank you, Lisa, if you're reading this.

      is just way too dangerous.  Not only the informants who can and most likely will be killed due to the release of this information.  Also, the families of the officers since there home addresses are being released.  Granted I don't like the law, and believe the officers should not be doing this, but their families should not be involved.

    Zeitgeist/Ron Paul/Infowars virus   I went over to that whatistheplan website and there's a lot about getting rid of currency and the Federal Reserve.  I mean bitcoin is a currency too, and it's already been taken over by the drug mafia.

    I'm all for going after big multinationals, but putting anarchy in its place that will just end up messing up the food distribution system and increasing hunger just doesn't make any sense.  Bunch of kids not thinking things through!

      The inevitable shutdown is upon us.  Pull up info on waterbobs, basic survival items if you lose your electricity due to possible cyber-attacks or the upcoming sunspots in 2012 and get some canned foods, for example.  Remember when a deer partially shut down the grid about 20 years ago?

      Just because it doesn't make sense doesn't mean it won't happen anyway.

      Did it make sense to you when you saw the supercapitalists overtake our government and decide we should all die?  It sure didn't make sense to me, on a personal level, but it's upon us anyway.  I was hysterical over the Supreme Court decision two years ago.  I saw what was coming and it is here now.  And not nearly as bad as it's going to get very very soon.

      As for me, I'm on the side of those who want to resist, even though many might be misguided youth who see no future and do stuff just for the lulz.

      As for the anon site, it is what you make it.  I wouldn't know how to hack if my life depended on it, but I'm very good at other things and I'm concentrating on alerting anyone who will hear that we need to set up sustainable communities.  That's my job til I'm dead.

      I'm sorry this is happening to us, but we have to face our fears and not take it sitting down, at least to my mind.

        with emergency prep

        If we have total anarchy lasting for years, no, I'm not prepared.  Nobody is.  Even those people with sustainable farms and solar power and whatnot--unless they also have a personal army protecting their property--nobody is prepared.

        How can you prepare for civil war?  If there is no food to eat, people will use their guns.

        •  I'm glad you're prepared (0+ / 0-)

          but some of the articles predict that the 2012 sun storm would affect us for months, not weeks.  Otoh, I just read an article this week stating that they're not going to happen after all.  Who knows really.  And yes many will suffer and die in a war.  Many are.
