Anonymous Claims Access to Every Secret Government Database

AnonymousWrites Sam Biddle on Gizmodo:

Anonymous has been meek and quiet since the great Sabu treachery, failing to even threaten much of anything. But in a new interview, one of the group’s last remaining leaders says Anon has a nuclear card up its sleeve.

Christopher “Commander X” Doyon, whose name is public because he’s been busted for hacking a California government website, sat for an interview with the National Post. The exchange circles mostly around Doyon’s exile in Canada, where he’s hoping to dodge the wrath of American feds. But he ends on one particularly ominous and/or laughable note:

Q. What’s next for Anonymous?

A: Right now we have access to every classified database in the U.S. government. It’s a matter of when we leak the contents of those databases, not if. You know how we got access? We didn’t hack them. The access was given to us by the people who run the systems.

    Too bad it doesn’t matter. The truth doesn’t set you free. It doesn’t inspire revolution, hell it doesn’t even inspire minor reform. The bulk of the people don’t give a shit. They are encouraged not to.

      Damn. When you put it like that… actually that’s just the way it is. People will be like yeah whatever. Sheep are forever asleep.

      • Hey I think you forgot the memo… the correct term is sheeple. Geez, get with the program

    • Millions of people taking to the streets in protest around the world is irrefutable evidence that you’re wrong.

      • LOL … where? If you’re talking about the so-called “Occupy” protests, the Susan G.  Komen Race for the Cure has 20-times more people participate in more cities. At its height, last year, “Occupy” had less people actively participating across the whole country (52,000) than the DHS has armed federal agents (65,000). 

        It’s just not relevant — it’s a curiosity that makes the news because it’s out-of-place in the U.S. but that’s it. A curiosity.  

        As for the rest of the world – U.S. government policies aren’t under threat by a street march happening in one of the client states. 

      • The fact that they are accomplishing nothing seems to say otherwise.

    • ….that’s because people are not hungry enough or homeless enough to REALLY care.

  4. LMAO – what a bunch of deluded buffoons 


  5. The claim is grossly illogical. That is not the kind of claim you make, that is the kind of claim you act upon. To make the claim allows everyone to react to them, too tighten up security, to further restrict access and of course to make all sorts of wild national security counter claims.
    This kind of thing smells of creating an excuse to go on a fishing expedition and arrest anyone and everyone who has some much as mentioned ‘Anonymous’ in a positive light and the interest’s of national security deny them due process and simply force false confessions and accusations against others.
    The FBI case against Lulzsec is proving a huge embarrassment with the FBI responsible for more crimes committed by Lulzsec than were committed prior to all six suspects being known but the FBI pursued the delusion of thousands of ‘Anonymous’ agents.
    Seriously what kind of other progroms does this remind you of, Chairman Mao and Comrade Stalin would be proud, of what seems to be a growing lie to target all protesters.

    What will anonymous leak next? 

    We don’t know, ALIENS!

  7. I’m not saying it’s aliens. But it’s aliens.

  8. This claim is as ludicrous as someone saying “we found the filing cabinet the U.S. government keeps all the secrets in!” 

    Honey, it doesn’t work like that. 

    Anonymous was always composed of the kids from school who would claim their dad was actually a secret agent or a billionaire or something when he was actually a construction worker or on food stamps. This bizarre claim kind of shows they never grew out of that.

    So when will the government be shipping everyone who has an irc client on their computer to Gitmo?

  10. This is a lie. Lies are obvious when they fail a simple logic test. For example, Anonymous could never be certain they have infiltrated “ALL secret government databases.” There could be other databases Anonymous is unaware of because their existence has been better concealed! Databases which are offline–not accessible via the internet–for example.

    For that matter, perhaps Anonymous was given access to fake decoy databases that contain false information about people, ready to be “leaked” by overeager “hackers.” The masterminds of this scam can thereby discredit or eliminate their opponents based on false information which appears to be investigation-based. The certainty of Anonymous’ claim requires omniscent knowledge which no one has. Anonymous may be being used as unwitting puppets by those who control top-level secrets, too drunk off their own perceived “power” to recognize that they’re NOT in fact the smartest guys on the info battlefield.

    Also tactically it is foolish to announce the possession of data without releasing that data. It gives your opponents time to annihilate you. Your comrade may respond to your death by releasing the data after the fact, but it’s THE END for you… you’re dead and that’s not worth the useless bragging. They might kill you for lying like this even if it’s not true! You’re creating perception problems for them!

    Also it seems far-fetched that those entrusted to protect this data would just hand the keys over to Anonymous, a faceless, leaderless group which could be composed of Chinese spies for all we know. And this cavalier breach of security happened in not just one case, but in several? It’s unrealistic to me.

    Also Anonymous has done nothing except initiate denial-of-service attacks on websites. This is an old-fashioned tactic and doesn’t really amount to being an elite society of super-hackers. Just socially-isolated brats with a grudge. So why would the data be leaked to Anonymous instead of say, Wiki-leaks? Wiki-leaks at least seems to be operating on some sort of populistic journalistic ethics. Anonymous is just another group of people who want to use their technological advantage to sieze power over people and institutions. We’ve seen no declaration of unifying principles or a commitment to good rather than wanton destruction. They’re sophomoric pseudo-anarchists, perhaps capable of doing great good in the world, but not focused on such values.

    Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence. Extraordinary claims without evidence is empty bluster.

    When they start publishing secrets about the JFK assassination or other cover-ups, and revealing secret but provable information from their supposed secret files, then I will believe them. Until then their claims just remind me of North Korea, pretending to be more powerful than they are.

    I noticed that it said “Commander X” got busted hacking a STATE site. How good can they be? Seriously, you mean that the state of California has better cyber-security than the federal government? I doubt it. There were two more stories how Anonymous “took down” the Vatican site and the C.I.A. site. I don’t think these guys could take their own pants down. Simply blocking access to a website doesn’t impress me much. Share files from Lockheed’s Skunkworks then I’ll be impressed. 

  12. Probably not true. Who would make a claim like that and it gives his name in the interview. Not very Anonymous eh?  That would be great though if they released some good dirt. This country needs to be a little more riled up as we take it in the ass by our own government every day. Yes the majority of the american public are Sheeple. But someday the pot will boil over and their will be chaos. 

  13. I don’t believe it. If they got that far in, they wouldn’t be so stupid to just brag and say “The access was given to us by the people who run the systems.” umm..wouldn’t that set off a storm of internal affairs? so if they’re lying they’re doing it just to fuck with the government when in truth, they probably just hacked it. or don’t have access to it period. it’s all bullshit either way.

    Although I’m sure individually many communities have access to and have shared many government databases, it is entirely inane to claim “All of them”. All of these supposed Anonymous Leaders are all silly fakes as it is. There is no “membership” and no leadership. That is the very point and reason of Anonymous. Whenever I see the leader of a hacker denomination who all helped in a few information seizing operations it makes me squirm. They may have helped but they lead nobody.

    most are not even aware of the things our goverment has done that ARE NOT so secret. An appetizer:
