Posted on 01/26/2013 10:50:39 AM PST by JohnPDuncan
Hacktivist group Anonymous took control of the U.S. Sentencing Commission website Friday, January 25 in a new campaign called "Operation Last Resort."
The first attack on the website was early Friday morning. The second - successful - attack came around 9pm PST that evening. anonymous
By 3am PST ussc.gov was down (it has since been dropped from the DNS), yet as of this writing the IP address (18.104.22.168) still returns the defaced site's contents.
It appears that via the U.S. government website, Anonymous had distributed encrypted government files and left a statement on the website that de-encryption keys would be publicly released (thus releasing the as-yet unkonwn information held on the stolen files) if the U.S. government did not comply with Anonymous' ultimatum demands for legal reform.
Anonymous has not specified exactly what files they have obtained. The various files were named after Supreme Court judges.

Dirt on the judges? Good—we’ll know what the creep-in-chief is holding over on them.
Dirt on certain members of SCOTUS? Oh, come on. That’s so gay.
There isn’t enough room on the Internet to expose all the dirt on them.
As another freeper has indicated on a different thread — they need to just “do this”. Why threaten? Why say “we have stuff”? Just teach the Powers They Be that they crossed a line — it’s payback time, baby! The system is wholly corrupt, all the powerful people have secrets and things they want hidden. Bust that dam wide open. Let the people see that our political masters are all deeply flawed and are not our superiors.
Impossible. All judges are carefully vetted before being appointed.
The question is, which one of them has the most dirt.
An open government is an honest government...and ours is closed up so tight it’s like trying to get a dollar from a liberal.
If there’s anything to this “dirt” on SC justices, the ultimate goal is probably to force an early retirement of one of the justices seen to be hostile to the marxists ahead of any court challenge to their assault on the 2nd Amendment.
There’s another thread where practically everyone is cheering on these statists. People need to open their eyes. “Anonymous” isn’t what it pretends to be. And it sure as hell isn’t a friend of ours.
Me, too. What did the Democrats have on Chief Justice Roberts? Inquiring minds want to know!

If they were serious, they’d have already put the info out there.
It sounds like they are threatening to wipe all of the governments servers.
I’m more interested in the dirt Boehner has on nearly every GOP member of the house who continually elect him to his position.
The implication is that embarrassing information about the Justices had been located on the Gov website? I find this odd. This is either subterfuge or Anonymous got the info elsewhere.
no lawyer is going to have put real personal stuff in a file on a work computer. If s/he has, s/he deserves to be fired. It probably just has emails about cases which admittedly would be darned interesting.
I’m guessing the files don’t actually contain much about the justices but more about the DoJ and the people who work there.
I could be wrong.
Call their bluff.
I’ve had managers who could waste that much disk space on a single indecipherable power point slide.
