|Victoria’s Human Rights Commission website was recently targeted by cyber attackers who claimed to be part of the well-known Anonymous collective. The hackers left an unclear message about their social network AnonPlus.
The hackers replaced the commission’s website and its pages with a message saying that their group is “non-criminal”. No explanation of why the commission’s website was targeted was ever posted there.
The hackers announced they spread ideas without censorship and urged media to be free but limit itself to “show what’s happening rather than telling people what’s wrong and what’s right”. They also explained they take offline websites “actively contributing to the control of the masses.” At the same time, the group claimed to not act for personal or political causes and have no leaders. The rest of the message was hard to read and not clear at all. At least the attackers clarified they didn’t steal or delete any data from the site, as only home page was affected.
Their message also contained a link to AnonPlus’ Twitter account. Apparently, the latter was last active about couple weeks ago. As for the Commission, the agency announced they were working to fix the problem and apologized for any inconvenience caused both in Twitter and on their homepage after the hackers’ message was taken down.
The Commission’s spokeswoman assured in the interview that they were aware of the breach and were working to solve the problem. At the same time, they had to admit that the reason behind such activity was hard to understand, because the hackers have never made any demands to the Commission or in any other way had a conflict with it. Finally, the agency emphasized once again that no privacy breach has occurred, because they don’t store any personal data on that site. Posted by:

|Are you kidding me !?!?|
Where the f... was Anonymous when WikiLeaks was used like Putin's lapdog?
Where were they when Trump was lying every day of the week and double on sundays?
Anonymous is just a bunch of opportunistic pansies with little to no skill, AND EVEN LESS ETHICS..
Anonymous is so over..

|Or maybe they too are Putin's lapdog: they go by PunyBear..|
|"Hacked".....oh you mean they ran to the Facebook report button cuz like 3 of them with 20 some accounts between them were blocked from spamming a page.......|
Reason #2 for quitting Facebook..... Anonymous and the constant ego maniacal pity party of petulant children who came to the party late with 10 year old software.....

|The 'Australian Human Rights Commission' is a joke. They tried to take two white men to court for racial vilification due to a complaint from a university staff member.|
What was their crime? The two men were asked to leave a computer lab due to the fact that the staff member on duty told them that it was for indigenous students only. The two men left quietly.
Later, they jokingly put a question up on facebook asking where the lab was that was reserved for whites (if there was one that was solely for indigenous students, then fairness would be to have on that was solely for others). They also questioned how you could end segregation by having a place that excludes people based on their ethnicity (being white). The staff member who kicked them out was offended by these comments and complained to the commission that she was being racially vilified.
The courts pointed out that nothing the member had said was racial vilification, and was in fact a valid question in regards to ending segregation.
|So these two men are guilty of this attack? Over someone refusing to follow a simple rule thats probably there for a reason, more than likely safety against some sort of racist war between people in fact. And you think that justifies vandalism? Cuz if not, all i can see is facebook drama and one of their so called "legion" came here to defend the failure.......|
|What vandalism are you talking about.|
|Well from what i can gather from reading this.....the index.html file of a website lol. And they didn't even do a very good job at that nor could properly explain even why they did it........Microsoft sam will get ya every time. Still think sounding like Stephen Hawking is cool?|
|most heinous and harmful digital vandalism!|
|Couldn't be that harmful considering the Commission seems in pretty good humor over it happening.|

|What do you expect from man children probably still living in their parents basement and jerking off to the latest Star Wars movie. Way to may a difference in the world by hacking a web site.|
|Oh wahh, god you anti-trumpers are such sad sacks. There is absolutely zero proof that Putin was behind the Wikileaks. Assange, who has a 100% track record until now has unequivocally said that it was not the Russians or any state actor that gave them the documents, further when the DNC had very amazing passwords like "obama08" what can you expect. John Podesta lost his email to a 4th-grade level phishing attempt. Just admit it, your mad that America and the world at large (brexit, LePen in France) are turning against your crappy ideologies|
|Greece govts official website was first and now this|
|Trump lying? Oh please.|
|Australia has no human rights just white ones ,watch Utopia by John Pilger its a real eye opener .Most of the old guard of Anonymous are in jail or on the payroll now looking for the how to catch the new breed|
|I recommend you watch First Contact (2014) which shows you.. how "well" aboriginals and whites get along. It gets a good idea about intelligent they are as well. You have should know that white nationalism is just as important as these minority groups rights to racial/national identity, even more so because of the lefts anti-white sentiments, the west has to become more nationalist if western society is to survive the onslaught of third world immigration!|
|"Oh wahh, god you anti-trumpers are such sad sacks."|
I really like how whenever you say you don't like Trump, you're supposedly a Hillary supporter. Funniest thing, I'm fn Canadian dude. So I'm literally NEITHER, and if you wanna know what my opinion of the states is right now.....Your best bet was Sanders and they pretty much paid him to shut up.
Did you ever stop to realize it's not "our idealogies" at play here. Rather than the opinion of someone who doesn't even have the balls to show their face...... I love how when anonymous is address for the patheti-sad fad that it is, first attack usually resorts in childish piss poorly educated insults.
If Anonymous was what it says it was, then how come they quote a bible verse in every youtube, not very anti religious if you ask me. Next off ask yourself, how credible is the word of a person who has no testicular fortitude to stand by its criminal attempts? This all in my opinion was a last ditch effort grab at attention online to once again make a bunch of fake like filled pages believe that there is gonna be some huge movement.
Started this crap back in what 2009-2010? And so far name one good positive thing thats changed the world as they promised.......I'll wait cuz i know you're gonna be googling for a while. While you're googling, google all the failures of anonymous. Someone wrote a very descriptive list on Reddit. Let's just say, how many times you gonna declare war on ISIS and do nothing but report some facebook profiles? Seems like all these wonderful laws, the crack down on bootlegs, this new horrible mood everyone seems to be in, are all thanks to this so called "Anonymous"........ So suggestion, next time you get a bright idea that you're gonna some how be this entire worlds savior, you might as well live up to the hype or simply shut up.
