Are Anonymous going to shut down the Internet on 31/3/12 ?

Saturday 31/3/12 is coming closer.

It’s been heard that Anonymous are going to shut down the internet.

This is said to be a text of Anonymous (NOT SURE OF THE AUTHENTICITY)


[“The greatest enemy of freedom is a happy slave.”

To protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved
bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of
sheer sadistic fun, On March 31, anonymous will shut the Internet down.


In order to shut the Internet down, one thing is to be done. Down the
13 root DNS servers of the Internet. Those servers are as follow:


By cutting these off the Internet, nobody will be able to perform a
domain name look-up, thus, disabling the HTTP Internet, which is,
after all, the most widely used function of the Web. Anybody entering” or ANY other url, will get an error page,
thus, they will think the Internet is down, which is, close enough.
Remember, this is a protest, we are not trying to ‘kill’ the Internet,
we are only temporarily shutting it down where it hurts the most.

While some ISPs uses DNS caching, most are configured to use a low
expire time for the cache, thus not being a valid failover solution
in the case the root servers are down. It is mostly used for speed,
not redundancy.

We have compiled a Reflective DNS Amplification DDoS tool to be used for
this attack. It is based on AntiSec’s DHN, contains a few bugfix, a
different dns list/target support and is a bit stripped down for speed.

The principle is simple; a flaw that uses forged UDP packets is to be
used to trigger a rush of DNS queries all redirected and reflected to
those 13 IPs. The flaw is as follow; since the UDP protocol allows it,
we can change the source IP of the sender to our target, thus spoofing
the source of the DNS query.

The DNS server will then respond to that query by sending the answer to
the spoofed IP. Since the answer is always bigger than the query, the
DNS answers will then flood the target ip. It is called an amplified
because we can use small packets to generate large traffic. It is called
reflective because we will not send the queries to the root name servers,
instead, we will use a list of known vulnerable DNS servers which will
attack the root servers for us.

DDoS request —> [Vulnerable DNS Server ] <—> Normal client requests
| ( Spoofed UDP requests
| will redirect the answers
| to the root name server )
[ 13 root servers ] * BAM

Since the attack will be using static IP addresses, it will not rely
on name server resolution, thus enabling us to keep the attack up even
while the Internet is down. The very fact that nobody will be able to
make new requests to use the Internet will slow down those who will try
to stop the attack. It may only lasts one hour, maybe more, maybe even
a few days. No matter what, it will be global. It will be known.

The tool is named “ramp” and stands for Reflective Amplification. It is
located in the \ramp\ folder.

———-> Windows users

In order to run “ramp”, you will need to download and install these two


The Winpcap driver is a standard library and the TOR client is used as
a proxy client for using the TOR network.

It is also recommended to use a VPN, feel free to choose your own flavor of this.

To launch the tool, just execute “\ramp\launch.bat” and wait. The attack
will start by itself.

———-> Linux users

The “ramp” linux client is located under the \ramp\linux\ folder and
needs a working installation of python and scapy.

Benjamin Franklin

We know you won’t listen. We know you won’t change. We know it’s because
you don’t want to. We know it’s because you like it how it is. You bullied
us into your delusion. We have seen you brutalize harmless old womans who were
protesting for peace. We do not forget because we know you will only use that
to start again. We know your true face. We know you will never stop. Neither
are we. We know.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.
You know who you are, Expect us.]

The last thing Ireland – and Europe – needs is more austerity

[…]Across Europe a new generation has been betrayed. In many cases locked into debt, unemployment or casual employment young people are experiencing the full force of the economic crash of 2008. It is important that all generations work together and build a solidarity that crosses boundaries. Trade union and civil society organisations are well placed to contribute ideas and press for meaningful social change. New thinking is needed and new leaders from among the younger generation can lead that process of transformed thinking for effective social change.[…]

When Greece celebrated its Independence Day on Sunday, there were scattered protests over the harsh austerity program aimed at stabilizing the country’s finances. The government reportedly removed low-hanging fruit from bitter-orange trees along the parade route, so it couldn’t be thrown by protesters. But, basically, the most recent bailout appears to be successful. As a result, worries about the European financial crisis have diminished somewhat. Indeed, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi has said that the worst is over for the euro-currency zone.

Such optimism may be premature, however. Not only does Greece remain a long-term financial concern, but in addition Portugal is on track to become a second big problem.

The dangers Greece still poses are clear. Higher taxes and government-spending cuts may reduce new borrowing, but such austerity policies also undermine a country’s ability to pay the interest on its existing debt. Unless accompanied by progrowth policies, austerity can…

Είναι πιο εύκολα να κυβερνάς γκαρσόνια παρά επιστήμονες


Αυτό που με πληγώνει πιο πολύ , στην όλη κατάσταση που επικρατεί σήμερα στην Ελλάδα , είναι η φυγή – μετανάστευση νέων ανθρώπων απ’τη χώρα.

Διαβάζω συνεχώς για Έλληνες που φεύγουν ή σκοπεύουν να φύγουν από τη χώρα ,  γιατί δεν μπορούν να βρούν δουλειά καιν να ζήσουν μια ζω΄η που θα ανταποκρίνεται στο μορφωτικό τους επίπεδο.

Δεν υπάρχει μεγαλύτερη ζημιά για μια χώρα απ’το να χάνει το έμψυχο δυναμικό της και να μένει χώρις τους πιο μορφωμένους ανθρώπους της.

Στην Ελλάδα ένα παιδί , από την ώρα που γεννιέται μέχρι που θα τελειώσει το σχολείο και το πανεπιστήμιο , είναι κάτω από την απόλυτη προστασία του κράτους. Η ασφάλεια των γονιών πληρώνει τον τοκετό , τους παιδιάτρους , τους δασκάλους και τη σχολική ζωή καθώς και τις παροχές στο πανεπιστήμιο. ΑΥΤΗ ΕΙΝΑΙ Η ΜΕΓΑΛΥΤΕΡΗ ΚΑΙ ΜΟΝΑΔΙΚΗ ΕΠΕΝΔΥΣΗ ΠΟΥ ΕΧΕΙ ΠΡΑΓΜΑΤΟΠΟΙΗΣΕΙ ΠΟΤΕ Η ΕΛΛΑΔΑ.Μιας και ζούμε σε μια καθαρά καπιταλιστική κοινωνία ,  το φυσιολογικό θα ήταν το κράτος να θελήσει να κάνει απόσβεση των κεφαλαίων που διέθεσε .

Αυτό που είναι ζημιά για την Ελλάδα όμως είναι το κέρδος για τα κράτη που θα υποδεχθούν τους νέους της. Είναι σημαντικότατο κέρδος για μια χώρα να εντάσει στο δυμανικό της έτοιμους επιστήμονες που έχουν πληρώσει άλλοι για την μόρφωση και την ανατροφή τους.

Θα μου πείτε όμως : τι πρέπει να γίνει ; Να παραμείνουν οι νέοι στην Ελλάδα , ψάχνοντας άδικα να βρουν μια δουλειά αντάξια των σπουδών τους ικανοποιόντας έτσι τα ακραία εθνικιστικά μας ένστικτα ή να αναζητήσουν αλλού μια αξιοπρέπεια στην ζωή τους ; Πάντα ήμουν υπέρ του διεθνισμού και της ανάμειξης πολιτισμών και πάντα θα υπερασπίζομαι αυτή τη θέση μου. Πιστεύω πως ο καθένας πρέπει να ακολουθήσει τη ζωή και τις ευκαιρίες του. Ο θεσμός του κράτους (που δεν τον πιστεύω καθόλου) όμως θα έπρεπε να προφυλάσσει τους πολίτες του από τέτοιες καταστάσεις .

Ακόμα και αν η Ελλάδα καταφέρει να ξεπεράσει τα οικονομικά της προβλήματα (πράγμα που δεν βλέπω) ποτέ δεν θα καταφέρει να αποκτήσει μια θέση μεταξύ των αναπτυγμένων κρατών. Θα έχει δωρίσει χιλιάδες επιστήμονες στα άλλα κράτη του κόσμου και θα έχει κρατήσει τους λιγότερο μορφωμένους πολίτες της. Αυτό που λέγαμε κάποτε για   ”γκαρσόνια της Ευρώπης”    θα γίνει πραγματικότητα .

Βολεύουν όλα αυτά βέβαια και αυτούς που μας κυβερνάνε . ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΛΛΟ ΝΑ ΚΥΒΕΡΝΑΣ ΕΠΙΣΤΗΜΟΝΕΣ ΚΑΙ ΑΛΛΟ ΓΚΑΡΣΟΝΙΑ .

It is a matter of not just progress but survival.
