Anonymous Attacks and Disables Alleged Kiddie Porn Sites

Picture: #OpPedoChat, xL3gi0n Hackers

Hacktivist group Anonymous launched an attack this week targeting more than two dozen websites alleged to trade in child pornography, knocking them offline for an indefinite period of time. Dubbed #OpPedoChat, the mass take-down was coordinated by a group calling itself xL3gi0n Hackers. ‘Tangos Down”, read an announcement posted to Pastebin.com, followed by a list of all the neutralized websites and screenshots depicting their status as offline. Beneath the list this note was left warning other child pornographers:

Greetings citizens of the world.

We are anonymous. We are defenders of the internet. We are yet again on the heels of pedophiles around the world. There are many websites with children being exposed and it is not right morally, legally or in respect to human rights. Pedophiles of the internet this is a warning to you. This is a warning to your supporters and anyone that takes part in your sick world. We will come for you. We will find you. We will shut down your websites and kick you out. You are not welcome here and we have had enough of you. Leave our children alone and while you are at it leave the rest of the planet alone. This is not a threat, this is a promise. We will hunt you down and exterminate you like cockroaches. You are the lowest form of life on this planet and it is time for you to be extinguished. We are the ones that will do this task. We are Anonymous. We are the great Legion. Everyone, from all walks of life have joined in this fight. People in every country, in every race and every religion all have the same belief. The belief that our children deserve to be safe. The pedophiles have not gone away and we must join forces to make it happen. We need to put all of our resources together to get these evil people away from our children. There are many of you that are concerned about the same issue. Now is your time to act. Get involved. We do not forgive we do not forget expect us we are legion, and we are coming for you pedophiles.

Mainstream media sources often paint Anonymous as a rogue criminal organization, reporting very little regarding the group’s actions against child molesters, oppressive government regimes and controversial religious organizations like the Church of Scientology and the Westboro Baptist Church.

       No. Doxing and DDOSing are going on. They got simple tools, social engineering and numbers. That’s it.

            Interesting. I always thought it was a cock monger, not mongler. I just googled both to see the definition.

            Monger: A dealer in a specific commodity. Often used in combination: an ironmonger. 2. A person promoting something undesirable or discreditable.

            Mongler: A thief or to steal. It apparently is also a very long standing meme in the form of: http://ohinternet.com/Cockmongler

            Fun AND informative. Who knew! :)

        Some would argue the underage polygamy, which was encourage over 100 years ago in the religion as a whole and now practiced in sects. here is a quote from a former LDS member and critic Fanny Stenhouse from around this time: “It would be quite impossible, with any regard to propriety, to relate all the horrible results of this disgraceful system…. Marriages have been contracted between the nearest of relatives; and old men tottering on the brink of the grave have been united to little girls scarcely in their teens; while unnatural alliances of every description, which in any other community would be regarded with disgust and abhorrence, are here entered into in the name of God’  So yes.. It is part of the very real history of LDS at VERY least…

       Let’s call it what it was.  Child rape.  Child molestation is a bullshit PC term meant to downplay the horrific nature of the crime.

    It’s sad when they make a big deal about doing a DDOS attack. It’s like brushing over the top of an anthill and claiming a great victory against the ants.

      True but in this case the op is posted right in the comments here and it’s getting exposure. It might compel some investigation by LEOs.

      If the US Govt had their ethics, Kim Dotcom would be president, and everyone would be wearing soft comfy kimonos, and enjoying they’re free pocky and hentai torrents. No work would ever get done again, the thing we call the economy would collapse because it never existed. Xbox would be the new national sport. Nice, but not my utopia, I’m more of a back to the forest type.
