Anonymous Releases Symantec Code From 2006, Deface Web Sites
[ Technology]

Anonymous continues its promise of attacking a new Web site every Friday as part of its “Fuck FBI Friday” campaign. The victims this week are New York City Ironworks, Symantec, which should be familiar to anyone who follows the exploits of Anonymous, and the Australian Department of Justice.

The AnonymousIRC Twitter account let it be known yesterday that the group had taken down the Web site for New York Iron Works. What had this company done to incur the wrath of Anonymous? They supply the police of New York City with the equipment they use. While the defacement is no longer on the main page, the Google cache is still holding on to it. It’s similar to the church attacks last week, but this is in response to the Anonymous arrests made last week due to Sabu betraying LulzSec.

This isn’t the first time Anonymous has retaliated for the arrests of LulzSec members. They took down Panda Security’s Web sites the day after the arrests for their hand in assisting the FBI with the arrests.

As always, the text explaining the defacement is informative and entertaining:

(once again)
LOVE TO LULZSEC / ANTISEC FALLEN FRIENDS
THOSE WHO TRULY BELIEVED WE COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE
LOVE TO THOSE BUSTED ANONS, FRIENDS WHO ARE FIGHTING FOR THEIR OWN FREEDOM NOW
LOVE TO THOSE WHO FIGHTED FOR THEIR FREEDOM IN TUNISIA, EGYPT, LIBYA
SYRIA, BAHRAIN, YEMEN, IRAN, ETC AND ETC AND ETC
LOVE TO THOSE WHO FIGHTED FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FOR A REAL DEMOCRACY,
FOR A GOVT FREE OF CORRUPTION,
FOR A FREE WORLD WHERE WE ARE ABLE TO SHARE OUR KNOWLEDGE FREELY

LOVE TO THOSE WHO FIGHT FOR SOMETHING THEY BELIEVE IN

WE ARE ANTISEC
WE ARE THE NEW AND THE OLD LULZSEC GUARD
WE ARE THE NEW SHADOW GUERRILLA

WE ARE THE KNIGHTS OF THE LULZ
WE LL FIGHT TILL THE END

TO FBI AND OTHER SHITS
YOU HAVE OUR LOGS, WE HAVE ALL THOSE PMs AND PRIVATE CHATs U DONT WANT TO MAKE PUBLIC
YOU REALLY FUCKED IT UP TRYING TO TRAP PEOPLE

ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US

hello friends!
As the events are unfolding they are changing the fundamental of history as we know it. But dont be mistaken for, We will fight any individual, organization, corporation, and/or government that hinder our movement. While some of our methods may seem unjust we believe that the action taken is needed. We are fighting the very institutions those are supposed to protect us. Fueled by money and power… the true nature of the government is at best: weak.

To our fallen brothers Your work has not been forgotten, your skills and teachings has spawn another generation of an elite squander. Like the knights at the round table, we have shared may common interests but let us not forget the game we play. AntiSec is still alive and well. We refuse to let some cheesecake ass player hater snitch divert us from our path in life.. a leader? at best a lame-facebook-user-gangsta-wannabe asshole blogger.. Our numbers are many and our skills are eminence… Jeremy, your presence will always live in our hearts..

> i lol’d at the lame-fb shit..
> XD

The tweet and the defacement call for the release of Jeremy Hammond, one of the hackers arrested last week as part of the FBI sting targeting members of LulzSec.

This was not the only attack, however, as Anonymous also leaked the source code from Symantec’s Norton Antivirus 2006 onto The Pirate Bay Thursday evening according to a Twitter user by the name of @AnonymouStun.

Symantec responded to the leak on The Inquirer saying that the source code was from the 2006 edition of Norton AntiVirus and that current users are not at risk.

@AnonymouStun refutes this by saying that Symantec has been using the same source code since and that it’s even being used in the most recent edition of the software.

In what may be the final attack to conclude today’s Fuck FBI Friday, Anonymous has also taken down the Web site for the Australian Justice Department and defaced it with a giant ASCII Anonymous logo. Wikileaks, who has quite the history with Anonymous, says the defacement is a response to “Australian government failure to support Australians overseas.”

If you’re confused, they mean Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks. He’s an Australian-born citizen fighting extradition to Sweden in the UK courts with a decision to be made regarding said extradition in the near future.

This may be the end of today’s FFF operations, but they will continue until Anonymous feels they’ve had enough. We’ll keep you updated on any more attacks should they happen today.
