    So, waking up in the morning, of a fine rainy british columbian day in canada, I go and snoop around the internet for a bit. Now, some of you may know, Mastercard, as well as many other services have denied funds to the website, wikileaks.

    Started at what? Wednesday, December 8th 2010, 6:30 (-8) PST

    Brief description of wikileaks:

    WikiLeaks is website that discusses many subjects, some of them are illegal such as corruption in the US government (In a nutshell, it talks about leaked info, hence the name "WikiLeaks"

    Shortly after mastercard stopped allowing transactions of donations towards this website that has been deemed illegal and cencored, mastercard suffered a large scale DDOS attack, with the result of the website getting shut down. There were rumors of hackers managing to steal a few credit card numbers, however that is unconfirmed.

    Several other services also had a DDOS attack, including Paypal, Visa and a Swedish bank that denied funds to the website. In result, Visa and Mastercard services went down, still are down. Users cannot make online transactions with these providers.

    The users behind this are listed as "Anonymous" and have a live twitter feed, they named this "Operation: Paypack" With over 2000 users assisting in the DDOS attack, the number continues to grow. The leader in all this game himself the alias "ColdBlood" and he has made multiple statements as this is meant to be a protest, saying how they were censoring their freedoms.

    Not surprisingly, many of the people assisting the attacks are from the message board: 4chan. After taking a quick peek into the "random" section, you would notice the board swarming with news about the attacks.

    This news has made headlines across the USA and UK, and bbc news.

    after you guys tl:dr, I'm a little worried about stolen numbers myself

    This is /b/ we're talking about. They're all script kiddies. They all use LOIC and that's about all they know. I highly doubt ANY of them could hack MC's database and get credit card numbers.

    It's not /b/ I'm talking about, but if there were people who knew what they were doing, then that's when I'll get worried. I'm not that worried since it's a bunch of teens just doing shit for fun, but the people who organized this shit and pulled this off are pulling flags for me. What if they really did have someone who knew what the hell they were doing. Overall, my reaction to this is "meh"

    This is the internet. Due to that reason alone, I am not surprised by these events.

    I stopped believing /b/ was a secret when I found it at 17, 4 years ago. I didn't know shit about the internet, computers, or anything back then. And if I found it, it was already not a 'secret clubhouse' anymore. I just hate it when people spew memes at me when they find out I surf it occasionally. It makes me want to smash their face into their keyboard... repeatedly.
