The Philippines Goverment has become the latest target in the #antisec operation with a hacker crew known by BashCrew, Congress.gov.ph being hacked and having some data leaked.

Several hacker groups have mounted a fresh batch of cyber attacks against the Philippines, Peruvian, and Colombian governments, all in the name of Anonymous’ ongoing AntiSec campaign.

The attacks were all first revealed on The Hacker News website before subsequently being publicised by Anonymous via one of its Twitter accounts

UK counter terrorism forces are gearing up for an expected increase in Al Qaeda-led ‘cyber jihad' and lone terrorist attacks in the future, as the tools and information needed to carry out such attacks become increasingly widespread online, according to a new report.

The Home Office Counter Terrorism Strategy said that, although there has been "no evidence of systematic cyber terrorism" as yet, there has been related terrorist activity since the first recorded incident in 2010.

This one is funny or for some, insulting.

AntiSec, a "hacktivism" partnership between Anonymous and former LulzSec members, released over 90,000 emails lifted from Booz Allen Hamilton's servers on Monday. The military contractor stayed quiet for most of the day, only to tweet vaguely in the late afternoon, "As part of @BoozAllen security policy, we generally do not comment on specific threats or actions taken against our systems."

They did not include word on whether they would be offering further response to one of the kind of novel part of the attack: Anonymous included an invoice for hacking the consulting firm:

The recent compromise of a NATO server by “Team Inj3ct0r” has recently made the news, but, as the media usually do, they did not look any deeper than the website for Inj3ct0r and perhaps a little data as to what the team said in a text doc on the compromised server.

A further examination of the group shows that Inj3ctor has been around since 2008, and has ties to Chinese hackers as well as Russia, Turkey and other countries.

BlackKatSec: The New Kids on the Block Who Allege They Took Down Al-Qaeda

Last week, the Al Qaeda site shamikh1.net was taken down by unknown persons and their domain suspended by Godaddy for abuse.

Evan Kohlmann of Flashpoint Global was making the rounds on the media circuit pimping that it was in fact MI6 or the like that took the site down.

However, Evan had little to no evidence to back this claim, and frankly, the media just ate it up evidence be damned. I came to the party after hearing online the previous weekend that the site was under attack and going down from an unknown type of attack.

In about a month the first graduates of the new Anonymous hacking school could start having an impact on the frequency of cybercrime.

"You could have a quarter of a million people who could be educated on how to hack, not professionally, but enough to be significant," says Karim Hijazi, CEO of security start-up Unveillance. He bases that projected impact on the number of followers that the hacking group LulzSec acquired on Twitter during its 50-day spree -- 285,550. When LulzSec disbanded last week, its members announced formation of the school.

Even celebrities are not safe from hacktivist these days. Another one on the list.

A hacking group calling itself SwagSec has broken into the official website of singer Amy Winehouse and defaced it by posting an expletive-filled message and an image of the rapper Lil' B.

The hacking gang, which according to its Twitter feed claims to be based in South Africa, describes the troubled singer as a "Racist crackhead devil b****" and says it plans to "take back the Internet from the white devil."

What charmers.

A group of hackers defaced several Fraternal Order of Police websites across Arizona on Thursday evening, posting the user names, passwords and other information of hundreds of officers.

A release by the hackers, plastered across the homepages of the affected websites, claimed they were releasing information on 1,200 officers. This marks the third major release of documents and personal information on Arizona law enforcement officials within the past week.
