Here, I am sharing some interesting attacks for anonymous group.
1. Operation Ice ISIS
A group related with Anonymous, Ghost Security, also known as GhostSec, is a self-
described "vigilante" group that was formed to attack ISIS websites that promote Islamic extremism.It is
considered an offshoot of the Anonymous hacking collective.
On February 9, Anonymous begun to attack the Islamic State’s social media accounts and Internet-based
recruitment drives, apparently destroying “months of recruiting work", and released a statement saying:
As of February 10, at least 800 ISIS-affiliated Twitter accounts have been brought down by Anonymous.
Within three days of the operation, 1,000 ISIS websites were brought down.
really very powerful group!
2. BART attack
In August 2011, in response to Bay Area Rapid Transit's shutdown of cell phone service in an
attempt to disconnect protesters from assembling in response to a police shooting, as well
as the shooting itself, Anonymous sent out a mass email/fax bomb to BART personnel and
organized multiple mass physical protests at the network's Civic Center
also hacked the BART website, releasing the personal information of 102 BART police
officers, as well as account information for about 2,000 customers
First, they gained access to MYBART.org and posted personal details like names and
account passwords of users. Then, when Linton Johnson, the company’s spokesperson,
failed to admit this was a mistake, Anonymous took things a bit further by posting nude
pictures of him online.
3. Operation Darknet Relaunch
Visitors to more than 10,000 Tor-based websites were met with an alarming announcement
on February 3 11:50 AM EST: “Hello, Freedom Hosting II, you have been hacked.” A group
affiliating itself with Anonymous had compromised servers at Freedom Hosting II, a popular
service for hosting websites accessible only through Tor.
The Anonymous hacktivists claimed over 50% of the data stored on the Freedom Hosting II
servers contained child pornography. International Business Times reported that the
hackers stole 75 GB worth of files and 2.6 GB of databases.
According to Sarah Jamie Lewis, an independent anonymity & privacy researcher who
spotted the mass hack as part of her regular scans of the Onion space (Dark Web sites
running on the Tor network), Freedom Hosting II was hosting an estimated 20% of all
websites on the Dark Web.
4. Operation Comelec
Anonymous Philippines hacked the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) website to force
them to add security to vote count machines (VCMs). The hacking was followed by a voters'
personal information leak, led by LulzSec Pilipinas, who placed them in the website
"wehaveyourdata.com". Paul Biteng, a 20-year old information technology (IT) graduate and
one of the hackers of the COMELEC, website was soon arrested by National Bureau of
Investigation (NBI) agents.
5. Project Chanology attack
This was done as Anonymous believed the Church of Scientology was spreading
misinformation about Scientology using internet censorship. Anonymous used Google
bombing, linking the work Scientology to the cult or dangerous so that searching
Scientology in Google would produce misleading and wayward results. One propaganda
video was posted on YouTube, for which the Church sued the video website. Anonymous
responded with a video of their own, generating 4.6 million views.
6. Dark discovery
Anyone familiar with the darknet would have heard of the Hidden Wiki, which is a guide to
many underground websites that support illegal activities on the dark net.Anonymous
gained access to Hidden Wiki, hunted down child pornography websites, and primarily
attacked Lolita City, the file-sharing website that pedophiles used frequently.
They publicly posted the names of the 1,589 members of the website, showing that they
would stand no such thing and are out to prevent the injustice of such notoriety. Anonymous
also showed that they are willing to go anywhere for getting justice done, even the darknet,
where law officials fail to get the job done at times as well.
7. Donald Trump’s Website Hack
Donald Trump caught the attention of people all over the world when he said that he wanted
all Muslims to be barred from entering the United States of America. Unfortunately for Mr.
Trump, he also caught the attention of Anonymous, who immediately taught him a lesson.
The website of Trump Towers subsequently went down for more than an hour, with A
twitter account related to Anonymous broke the news of the hack, and a YouTube video
released shortly afterward contained a member asking Donald Trump to think twice before
8. WTO Hack
A hacker who was previously involved in hijacking two major Israeli arms dealers and
leaking their client data claimed that he was with Anonymous after claiming to be the one
behind the WTO hack in May 2015. The hacker hacked into WTO through their
ecampus.wto.org domain and leaked personal information of many WTO officials. Details
like phone numbers, email addresses, IP addresses, etc. of over 2,100 WTO officials from
USA, Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan, Brazil, and other nations was made public by this
hacker belonging to Anonymous.
9. Operation NSA
On November 20, 2013 Anonymous announced plans to target the National Security
Agency and other U.S. Government Organizations for their spying on the internet activity of
all Americans and their censorship of free press on the internet.
10. NSA document release ( Not Clear )
On June 7, 2013, Anonymous released what was claimed to be secret documents related to the NSA. In
reality, the documents were already publicly available
Anonymous is really very powerful and dangerous group and increasing rapidly all over the
world. their history is really amazing because they have done many amazing and high
profile hacks. and interesting point is that they only works against injustice and corruption.
