Anonymous Threatens NYSE Terror Attack on October 10th

The financial chaos they cause if they pull this off could tip the country into civil unrest. Glenn Beck has a good clip on the threat:

It should be noted that recently Anonymous called for violence against Wall St. workers in a video posted to their channel a couple of days ago.

As a precaution you should have plenty of food and water in the house – and guns and ammo in case Anonymous can create the nation wide chaos they want. If you haven’t purchased a gun and ammunition by now it’s pretty much too late. Hope hungry looters don’t hit your house.

Banks will probably close if they really pull off a significant attack on the financial sector so get plenty of cash out between now and then. The goal here is to cause a TEOTWAWKI level event so prepare in case they can actually achieve those goals.

    First of all, in the tech community the attack of a website is like tearing down a poster. So Anonymouse post a stupid picture. That’s not really a big deal so much as a headache for the site admin.

    Second, if you think the Exchange doesn’t have, at least, an air-grapped intranet and contingency plans since 9/11, then you are probably exactly the kind of audience that Anonymos counts on. Read: not-computer or network engineers.

    About the *only* shot they’d have is to have a human insider. The odds of that are relatively slim.

    Anonymous conveniently show up to ‘support’ such things versus leading the charge. Being able to do a DDOS attack is not nearly at the level of what they’re threatening now. They busted Sony primarily because Sony weren’t paying attention to the exploits in their network. The NYSE is not an online gaming community. Trades don’t even happen, though it APPEARS differently, to the user in real-time. There’s a good security reason for that.

    Anonymous are like kids with M-80′s. They’re not the uber-spies they get far too much credit for being. Hacking a website to pop up a picture ‘for the lulz’ would bring, at most, a giggle from the exchange gear heads.

    Most security experts will be sleeping quite soundly on the 10th except for the calls from overly-worried executives who can barely handle their own Blackberries to begin with.

    Was this no big deal?

    Or this?

    Anonymous is not just a group of hackers – they are a collection of nihilists who have proven that they are not content with trolling and “lulz” anymore.
