ANONYMOUS VS THE WORLD BANKS: #OpIcarus Continues

6

The “Anonymous Collective” comes in many faction varieties, from the media faction here to operations. In this case we find ourselves, once again, following #OpIcarus on their 30-Day Bank take down month. This Anonymous group has launched their second phase of #OpIcarus, which is touted as a massive struggle upon the “Global Banking Cartel.” Their first target was the Bank of Greece, heavily attacked by a DDoS attack early Tuesday.

The attacks lasted for a few minutes and was successfully tackled by the bank’s security systems,” protested an unnamed official from the Bank of Greece as they spoke to Reuters.

CNet reported that the bank’s official website policy section was the only aspect of the entire website that had been directly affected by this harmful DDoS attack. However, the site was quickly back up and online according to the financial institution.

With the release of another video that is in conjunction with #OpIcarus, the attack that happened to the Bank of Greece was only marking the beginning of a “30-Day campaign against central bank sites across the world.”

The video above explains the campaign even further, going into details as per their objectives in the operation.

The message states:
“Here is our message to the monolithic conspiracy running the world as we know it, our message is clear:

We will not let the banks win; we will be attacking the banks with one of the most massive attacks ever seen in the history of Anonymous.

We will be giving tools to each and every Anon all over the world, and we will be holding down PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, NASDAQ, Bank for International Settlements all central banks, London Stock Exchange, and every major banking system will be targeted by Anonymous.”

Target List

This Anonymous group has their Target List posted on PasteBin to show the entire world who they will attack, with or without their permission.

As you can read from the target list, they have divided the list into 4 major sections. These sections represents the websites that are associated with the U.S. Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund, as well as sites that are owned by the World Bank. They also cover over 150 sites in association with national banks from around the globe.

Near the end of March, the Anonymous group had outlined their plans to launch this operation #OpIcarus, while invoking “Call to Arms” in which they state “We have shown the World our strength to deny ignorance, overcome adversity, fight oppression and even the power to throw a wrench in the system that perpetuates it.”

The group goes onto saying “Like Icarus, the powers that have flown too close to the sun, and the time has come to set the wings of their empire ablaze, and watch the system their power relies on come to a grinding halt and come crashing down around them.”

  1. I am here to ask about the quote “We will be giving tools to each and every Anon all over the world, and we will be holding down PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, NASDAQ, Bank for International Settlements all central banks, London Stock Exchange, and every major banking system will be targeted by Anonymous.”, because i have extremely terrible equipment/tools, and i really do want to do more but I can’t with the terrible equipment/tools i have, if you can contact me

  2. LOL, the “Anonymous Collective Stone Heads” sure are making total idiots of themselves.

    Wow, what a great achievement, the attacks lasted for a few minutes and only affected the policy section of the entire website!!

    HaHa, and they say they are attacking the banks with one of the most massive attacks ever seen in the history of Anonymous!! (WTF)

    I’m sitting here pissing myself with hysterical laughter to such an extent I regurgitated all over my key-board.

    DDoS attacks are not hacking, they a simple irritation which can be performed by an elementary school child by downloading a program. (like Justin that cant even find a download, let alone write his own)

    What on earth do they think they achieving? (other than making fools of themselves) WTF is the big deal if a site goes down for a few minutes?

  3. Are you fucking kidding? To start, you’re taking it over the top; don’t make me shut down your network, just to prove a point. DDoS? Oh please, with a simple DoS, I took a 10gb backbone, down by 50%, in 2 minutes, with a single residential connection. Lets not forget, I also lagged out 4 countries, with a single server, on a single residential connection. That, is a Real DDoS attack… I have proof those I attacked, are going after a lot of people. Are there banks, that need to be taught a lesson; certainly. But Microsoft is far more of a problem than Any bank. Take down Microsoft; the ones putting us all in cages. Take down those invading privacy. Don’t just blindly attack All; cause of those fuck tards pulling strings. I left anonymous long before most of you started, you have no real tactics. It seems more like you’re abusing your power, as opposed to fighting the abuse of power.

  4. Anon are some bunch of fools, who are talking like small kids for publicity. Anon usless and careless with every bits they do for some few likes. Get real and show guts
