Anonymous “Hacks Wrong Site”

anonymous-hacks-river-management-office_0.jpg

The campaign of Anonymous to free Japan from the bondage of unduly harsh copyright law has got off to a less than auspicious start after the group bumblingly hacked the wrong site, thinking it was humiliating the central government by defacing their site only to find it had instead ruined the site of a river works office in Ibaraki.

Along with various political and official websites loosely connected to the law (for some reason Japan’s recording industry mafia group JASRAC has been spared), Anonymous defaced the site of the Kasumigaura river management office, a governmental body primarily concerned with flood control and water management in eastern Kanto.

It is believed that they actually thought they were targeting Kasumigaseki, a region in central Tokyo full of government offices and also a euphemism for these government departments:

<ho> my friend has a question that is anon was mistaken about Kasumi-gaura http://www.kasumi.ktr.mlit.go.jp/ and Kasumi-gaseki

<&Juzzy> What do you mean Anon was mistaken?

<c0ug4r> tell me about kasumi

The site itself has been restored along with a terse message from the department affected saying how regrettable it is and how they will try not to let it happen again.

This has not done the reputation of the super-hackers much good in Japan:

“Sad!”

“How lame!!!!!!”

“That’s just cute.”

“Anonymous is so cute.”

“What a mistake…”

“Dojikko Anon.”

“Dojikko moe!”

“Get some members who actually know something about Japan.”

“The poor people of Ibaraki prefecture…”

“They targeted a river management authority?”

“They don’t even know any Japanese, what a useless bunch of incompetents.”

“And they had such a good image…”

“My prefecture’s lakes!”

“Oh, and this time they didn’t just knock it offline, they replaced it?”

“They could just replace Kasumigaura’s site with that of Kasumigaseki, problem solved!”

    Question, is Anonymous is using google translate?

    Yes, they are. It's sad because some of them are European otakus, but the script is too difficult to learn, it's not that simple case like for example with cyrillic. Hiragana and katakana are not that useful without kanji knowledge, although there are sites that add furigana with some success...

    You can read Japanese with just kana knowledge just fine. And Firefox has browser extensions which let you insert furigana everywhere.

    It takes more time to read than the kanji script, but it's not impossible.

    strange that they completely violated sony-chan than....no one who got nuclear ass-fucked by that fiasco was laughing. But than anonymous is not a tight-nit group by any means.

    I imagine this is a bunch of idiot teen-somethings and skiddies, not someone with even remote knowledge of coding and programming.

    Well, there are some world-class hackers who claim themselves as part of it as an ideal, and then of course there are those on the forefront who know nothing but wish to do something.

    The issue is most people aren't intelligent enough to understand what Anonymous is. Anonymous is a connotative representation of an ideal, and an ideal cannot be hijacked by any one group. The new term "Anonymous" was born to describe a unilateral hive mind toward an ideal or thought process, which can lead to actions taken by the collective in one direction or another. Often trolling for lulz though.

    A group name of "Anonymous" does not make them Anonymous the ideal. In fact by even attempting to focus the ideal of Anonymous, they are in fact violating it. Having a leadership making decisions for the hive mind makes them drones, not a sovereign entity of matching ideals that has no borders and no leaders. That which made Anonymous what it was was how it formed with no true leadership, but ideas that led to actions across the planet despite any logic or direction. A countless-headed hydra that is representative of the new state of planetary consciousness and its constant evolution.

    I don't disagree with the idea of trying to focus that energy through a point of 'attack' in order to better the planet. I do find it beautifully ironic that the Internet Hate Machine completely inadvertently began producing justice though...

    brb, church.

    Anonymous is whoever decides to call themselves anonymous at a given time. The only principle anon follows is that we have an unspecified identity.

    Anyone claiming to represent the views of anonymous doesn't really understand what it means.

    Anonymous is more of a big cluster fuck of wildly different ideological groups that at times will agree on something.

    There is no hive mind involved.

    Someone picks a target and the mass follows.

    It is not a collective decision.

    That is the reality not their self proclaimed bullshit.

    While I agree with you that they seem to have no programming knowledge, I highly doubt its a bunch of teens due to the fact that there not all "derp we hacked you were so cool" in their posts and seem to have sensible grammar. They are morons though no question there.

    The number of people assuming this is anonymous when the freaking motto of anonymous isn't even without errors is pretty amazing. I'm definitely going to rob every one here and just spray a local gang tag somewhere in the house since apparently you'd automatically attribute it to them even against all other evidence.

    Yeah, this is most likely forged to make Anonymous look bad. And the way it is done in such an obvious, almost ludicrous fashion, you can tell it was the Japanese's sad attempt at counter-hacking. Good enough to fool children and idiots, but not good enough to fool those who are fed up with losing their rights.

    Comment by Anonymous

    That's funny, because "Anonymous" is actually full of quite a few members who haven't even hit puberty!

    Comment by Anonymous

    Anonymous doesn't need to be made look bad. Like he said, they are just teenagers with hormones out of control and can't fap because their balls didn't descend yet. They feel the need to join an organization so that they find some self worth.

    If it fails, it's because someone else did it to make anonymous look bad? Stop kidding yourself. They are losers and you know it.
