    March 31: Operation Global Blackout: Hackers Intend to Shut Down the Internet by Disabling Core DNS Servers

    The hacking group known as Anonymous intends to attack the core servers that control the routing of all internet traffic. DNS, or Domain Name Servers, are a critical backbone of the web and make it possible for internet surfers to reach web site destinations by typing in a domain name in their browsers. Once a particular web site is requested, a query is sent to a domain name server, which then redirects that web address to a specific IP address on the web. Without these servers, access to web sites through traditional means (typing in a ‘dot com’) becomes impossible, because there is no way to direct the traffic to the appropriate web site destination.

    According to a statement released by Anonymous, it is these servers that will come under fire on Saturday, March 31.

    Anonymous says they do not intend to ‘kill’ the internet completely, but rather, the end game of Operation Blackout 2012 is a temporary take down of the internet where “it hurts most.” According to the group, the operation is being carried out 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. (source)

    Excerpt of statement:

    Citizens of the United States, We are Anonymous.

    This is an urgent emergency alert to all people of the United States. The day we’ve all been waiting for has unfortunately arrived. The United States is censoring the internet. Our blatant response is that we will not sit while our rights are taken away by the government we trusted them to preserve. This is not a call to arms, but a call to recognition and action!

    The United States government has mastered this corrupt way of giving us a false sense of freedom. We think we are free and can do what we want, but in reality we are very limited and restricted as to what we can do, how we can think, and even how our education is obtained. We have been so distracted by this mirage of freedom, that we have just become what we were trying to escape from.

    For too long, we have been idle as our brothers and sisters were arrested. During this time, the government has been scheming, plotting ways to increase censorship through means of I S P block aides, D N S blockings, search engine censorship, website censorship, and a variety of other methods that directly oppose the values and ideas of both Anonymous as well as the founding fathers of this country, who believed in free speech and press!

    The United States has often been used as an example of the ideal free country. When the one nation that is known for its freedom and rights start to abuse its own people, this is when you must fight back, because others are soon to follow.

    Read full Statement

    If this latest threat is carried out, it will highlight the significant security risks inherent in the internet as it exists today. According to numerous reports, including those of the head of US Cyber Security General Keith Alexander, infrastructure, commerce and transportation are susceptible to attacks that could damage physical equipment like thousand-ton machines, cause widespread power outages, and affect just-in-time delivery systems that keep food, gas and commerce flowing.

    If Anonymous is capable of attacking core DNS servers that take down the web, even for a day, it would be a show of just how fragile our entire way of life really is. Though Anonymous hackers undoubtedly include some of the best and brightest techies out there, they would likely pale in comparison to the cumulative power of hackers operating under the sponsorship of a large Asian government (we won’t name any names), or a coordinated rogue terror network that acts not for the purpose of protest, but devastation.

    If such an attack were to be unleashed on the Untied States terrorism experts suggest a coordinated take-down of the entire United States could be executed in as little as 15 minutes.

          You realize what the NSA does, right? They analyze SIGNALS. I’m sure they have large amounts of bandwidth throughout the United States but limited amounts else where. Most of the top level DNS servers are outside the USA.

          Now, the US Military would have the capability to do something like this, but doubtful the NSA would. I think you read too much Hollywood type stuff and less on the reality side of things.

          Also, what does it involve? Do you even have the slightest clue how the Internet is put together? How systems interact amongst themselves? Doubtful based on your well thought out and put together response anyways. Is Anonymous capable of doing this? Doubtful, maybe hitting 1, 2 or maybe even 4 of the top Domain Servers yes, but there are dozens.

        They also claimed they would go after the Mexican drug gang known as Zeta. That stopped the moment some anon-friendly blogger’s head literally wound up on a pike… Long story short, the shit got real, and the boys in the Guy Fawkes’ masks bugged the hell out.

        As for the DNS thing? Most DNS entries expire in 86,400 seconds, or one day, by default. Forgot what the root servers had set, but if you shut them all off right now, caching (both at the individual level and at the ISP DNS servers) would insure that you didn’t notice the change for at least a day.

        Long story short? Good luck with that, kiddies.

      IF THEY DON”T WORK FOR FEDS-They are patriots,I agree with their view that censorship has started(it has been blatantly obvious to me for 8-10 weeks) and we are all living the american dream(DREAM-a succession of images,thoughts, or emotions passing throught the brain during sleep) I say again- whom ever came up with that saying was talking about the american sheople in the state of sleep. The media twisted it to mean house,car, and government job.

      IF THEY WORK FOR FEDS- All bank account balances will get wiped out, and transfered to jpm and goldman sachs and 5% going to bj clintons cocaine fund, and a new more powerful sopa will get passed.

      This is exactly what the de facto government running the show in Washington has been waiting for – an excuse to shut down the internet.

      A new executive order or internet patriot act will follow immediately upon the heels of this!

        • Because a very wise person opened my eyes to the fact that we are constantly being manipulated to believe that things are being done “for our own good”.

          Further – the internet is the last bastion of free speech left in the US. The mainstream media is all propaganda – you can now be arrested and federally charged for peaceful protest – it is in the PTB’s best interest to shut it down.

            I disagree, WE THE PEOPLE are the last bastion of free speach. The internet was created by the military(aka the feds) they have ALWAYS controled it, they just have not 100% silenced/censored the people yet (aka patriot movement 2.0), they are working on that now and are proceeding in leeps and bounds. Yes governments deceive,with that in mind they can also use OUR mis-trust of government against us, to divide us. This groups message is a good one. It is for liberty,freedom of speach, and anti-federalism, every thing in principal that I support. I know there are people in the alt. news that THINK they are feds(someone I really respect does)BUT without PROOF it is just OPINION! The feds will go after internet freedom for a dog peeing on a fire hydrant at this point BECAUSE THEY ARE LOSING THE WAR OF THOUGHTS AND INFORMATION and they KNOW IT. I will waite to make up my mind about it being a false flag after I see what is attacked.

          • Kev ~ I posted a very thought provoking Youtube video about Anonymous – it hasn’t cleared moderation yet. Let me know what you think of it.

            As far as the people being the last bastion of free speech – okay – I can definitely agree with that. But the internet is the tool we use to get the word out. One person shouting on the sidewalk is very limited as to the number of people he or she can reach. But that same person on the internet can reach THOUSANDS of people in seconds.

            This will be the beginning of the end of us having access to the internet for this purpose.

          • Kevin, I whole-heartedly agree with you regarding Google, and all the other search engines I use have been likewise compromised. Research is my bread-n-butter and it has gotten far more difficult over the past two months.

            As for the video, I honestly don’t know who posted it. The person who did has many other videos about Anonymous. I’m not saying it’s 100% law and gospel, but if you read back, I said it is very THOUGHT-PROVOKING. We all have to draw our own conclusions and the more resources we have to base those conclusions on, the better off we’ll be.

Hell, for all I know the feds(or chinese) released this statement(and ALL the anon statements) and the real enon is in the shadows fighting for internet freedom, and the gubmint knowing this is, just going to use this attack to get more control.

            @ Daisy, you have certainly “fully blossomed” into a tall, confident, and conspicuous “flower” in a garden often overgrown with ragweed. May the “soil” you are rooted in continue to provide all of the appropriate and timely “dirt” as needed. Gets easier to identify when you “know to be looking” in the first place.

        Very interesting Daisy. Have not thought of that. Are you saying that Anonymous will not actually shut it down but the government will as an exercise and blame it on Anonymous? That would be perfect for the elites. Then they could shut it down anytime they want and just put out a statement as if they were Anonymous and shut it down.

        • That’s my guess, Silver Fox. It will be shut down (or further restricted) in response to the “threat” proven by Anonymous. We’ll be told it’s all for our own good and that the grid is being protected for our safety.

          And my further guess is that SOPA will seem like a Libertarian picnic compared to the law they come up to counter this action.

      Daisy, I’m in agreement with you! This group is being used to terrorize the internet and further the agenda of control through implementation of greater lengths of internet policing/control. I would not be surprised if they need to do a complete shutdown to start a new system or program that monitors more completely than it already does. Horrible that we have no trust and need to even think this way but this is our new reality like it or not.

      Or maybe it’s just these continued threats that they are going to use to sell greater monitoring control of the net to the masses. All the dumb asses will say ok that seems necessary not understanding the consequences.

    9. It’s not like this is a surprise. People in the know have been warning of this exact situation, saying just how easy it would be to do this. It’s not exactly difficult to do. They will use the same techniques that people use to “hack” websites, change the DNS rules to make a domain name go to a different address than it should.. with a modified copy of the website.. it appears someone gained access to the actual website, when thats not what actually happened.. It’s called DNS cache poisoning.. I can’t remember where I read it, but several years back, a group of techies started warning of this, and came up with ideas for solving it.. but no one ever wanted to do what was necessary to fix it………. “It will break too much stuff” was the most common complaint….. Well guess what…. Those fixes could have been in place for a decade now….. but they arent..

I disagree 100% with you about the internet. The internet is NOT the last bastion of free speach, WE ARE. The people who voice their opinions are that freedom, the internet is a tool, a hoarse to ride into battle on. Unfortunetly, that horse belongs to them, and we are sitting on it fidling while “they” grab the rein and walk us AND the hoarse down the road of ruin.

        Expose them, their lies, and their web of deceit. Don’t shut US down.

          Ha! Funny you say that. As I was reading the comments here I guess our Internet went down. I didn’t know as I could continue to scroll down on the page which was still up and showing. My daughter came in to my office in a panic saying “The Internet is down!! You need to fix it right now! I’m in the middle of something.” Granted, she was working on her college homework, but I think a big outage would affect young people the most as they never lived in a world without Internet so they can’t fathom being without it.

          For me, although I depend on it everyday for my business now, there were ways to conduct business before the Internet, it just took longer. Actually, I would enjoy a break from this hectic life sometimes!

        In this economy, there is a lot of commercial enterprise done via the net. Not just the obvious little one-person business, but a lot of large enterprises have managers working from other locations via the net. It is increasing productivity. Someone at their home in Altanta can email a vendor in Podunk for delivery to a loading dock in Michigan, all in seconds, with confirmation coming by return email in another few minutes, as just one example.

        So many folks do all their bill-paying online, buy stamps, complete USPS shipping orders,that a one day shut down will cost the economy many tens of millions.

        Then there is all the streaming entertainment, all the Skype calls, all the families keeping in touch via FB…the Internet today is about a lot more than getting the word out or engaging in free speech. It really is a communication & information superhighway we all use for everything.

        Anonymous will hurt many more average folks than they will hurt the government, IMO. Frankly, I think they are major criminals and need to go away.

      Anyone wonder if one day in the future we’ll hear about how “Anonymous” was really a classified government program developed to force other government (or sponsored) entities to tighten up their online security by probing for weaknesses? And to ransack the private info of other governments under the guise of some rouge hacker group? It would be brilliant if true. And the more this group operates seemingly unchallenged – or even talked about publicly by political figures – the more I wonder. Maybe one day “Anonymous” will attack China, disable their Internet and steal a bunch of state secrets. “But hey, China, it wasn’t us,” says the US gov’t, “It was a rouge group of independent hackers.”

      • SM thanks for posting. quick note on that: the shtfplan ip is not dedicated due to limittions with our current hosting package. we are in the midst of a server migration as we speak ( have had some technical issues with properly exporting our database so have been slightly delayed). once on the new server the site will have a new, dedicated IP so access directly via that will work in the event of a DNS outage.

        for those interested, the new server will be running on a hexacore processor with the ability to handle a lot more traffic efficianetly, especially during rush hour spikes, and should make it possible for us to finally introduce more community oriented applications like forums, and eventually group networking features.

      There is a infinitesimal chance that this could be famous last words, but anonymous will not shut down much, if anything at all. Someone that is capable of an attack is extremely unlikely to forewarn those that they attend to launch an attack on. It is even more unlikely that someone would ever tell their enemy where they are going to attack. Unless anonymous has some sort of fail-safe plan that just cannot fail, they are just trying to frighten everyone.

      Even when the very superior air power of the United States during the first Gulf War, Iraq didn’t know when it is was coming or from where and from what. Those Stealth aircraft should surprised the hell out of hussein. IF anonymous could flatten the internet, they would likely just do it without any advanced warning and catch everyone off guard and then maybe take credit for it later.

      Announcing that they are going to shut down everything, anonymous is nothing but like a peacock strutting around trying to look more important and threatening than they actually are. Think about all the safeguards put in to the net because of attacks from organized extremely well financed countries with the best minds on the planet working for them, like from China or Russia.

      In my opinion the ONLY way anonymous could shut down the internet would be if they had some type of future or extraterrestrail technology that would be invulnerable to any defenses, while giving advanced warning would not matter. I have more chance of winning the power ball and mega ball in the same week. The group anonymous is all BLUSTER.

      Look up the IP address of every website you normally access. Add the IP address and the regular address of the site to your hosts file (after making a backup copy). If DNS is interrupted, your browser can still get the IP addresses you have stored in the hosts file.

      The hosts file is plain text editable with Notepad and (on my Windows 7 computer) is located at c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\. To find the IP address, one place you can go is centralops.net/co/. Choose ping; on the next screen type in the address (such as cnn.com) that you want the numbers for; and hit enter. Then you can copy the domain and IP address into the hosts file. It is tedious, but you have two more days.

        Knowledge is Power: ANONYMOUS and LulzSecurity are the NWO CIA FBI MOSSAD FEDS!!! They’re playin’ you ALL for ignorant FOOLS…

        LulzSec and Anonymous attacks have provided the government with an excuse to push their cyber security agenda and propaganda campaign, including the proposal for a “kill switch” that would have allowed Obama to shut down the internet (due to public outrage, the proposal was dropped from a House bill in February).

        Government and corporate groups cited LulzSec and Anonymous lawlessness last June to push the so-called Protect IP Act (known as PIPA). The introduction of a House version of the bill, dubbed SOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act), was met with public outrage and widespread activism that forced Congress to reconsider the legislation.

        In October, Mother Jones revealed that the FBI is notorious for creating supposed terrorist groups from scratch and then framing patsies in order to claim the government is protecting the United States from terrorists and also breathe life into an otherwise moribund war on mostly nonexistent terrorism.

        Sabu’s role as an FBI provocateur working inside LulzSec reveals the government is attempting to do the same in order to push its so-called cybersecurity agenda. The establishment is eager to pass a raft of legislation to closely regulate the internet, strip the medium of its anonymity, and close it down as an activism and alternative media tool.

I know they tried Wall Street, but Wall Street isn’t just a computer network. The DNS system is, and is very susceptible to a DDOS attack.

      I’m no fan of the “system”, but this is comparable to shutting down a freeway or other public resource.
      It’s like poisoning the public well to protest the king.

      It isn’t even an astute attack, just simple brute force again a handfull of servers that serve us all, yes ALL. Good,bad,sheeple, the root DNS servers serve us all.

      What a crock/crap bit of information this is.
      I mean Really?
      Not having read any comments, just the article I LAUGH in your face!
      When I wake up that morning, everything will probably be the same except for others that may have read this in my small city and made a run on the stores.
      And if the Internet goes down and the trucks don’t run for a few days?
      SO WHAT.
      Isn’t this the type of ‘short term’ emergency we are all prepared for?
      Scare tactics, “Oh look here, ‘Not over there’, at what could happen.”
      Is this the way ‘they’ are preparing us for what the real ‘they’ could really do?
      By the way, 3/31/2012 is a Saturday in my part of the world.
      I will probably just sleep through it.
      Then I will get up boil water make coffee by hand if I have to and go work in the garden.

      So who is to say that this is actually the real groups statment of intent? Why release the warning? Tactically if you wanted to take down a target you hit them when they don’t expect it, why announce it, all they are doing is giving TPTB time to be prepared to retaliate if such a statement was true. With all these Executive Orders and problems going on, looks more like another avenue that TPTB can use to lock down communication.

        In response to your list. #2 will be the U.S.S. Enterprise Carrier, all nuclear material was off loaded in FLorida( supposed training)and it will power out to the Gulf old school. They wont moth ball/ sacrifice a nuclear vessel unless its safe to do so, this being the oldest and first of the nuclear vessels it will be the easiest to sacrifice since it is out dated and up on its last voyage ( literaly). It will take longer to get there because of the removal of the nuclear rods. It wont take long after it gets there before we see the ball move.

        IMO I’d imagine it’ll get sunk when Isreal strikes Irans facilities( remember they said they would attck in months), this is so we can see Iran use China’s Carrier Killer missle( supposedly)but blame N. Korea and tie in all the players we want to hit. In which the skeleton crew will be lost. Another sacrifice of 3000 crewmen/women +/-to further the agenda during another election year.

    55. I remember one quote, “Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see”.

      That being said, trust the little voice inside you, listen to it, trust it. And just because we may be paranoid, does not mean they are not out to get us.

      Here is my take and opinion and plan for my digital security. At my bugout spot, I’ll have a desktop devoted to security and knowledge. It will NOT be hooked up to the internet. This machine will be faraday protected and have it’s own power supply, I will build this machine from scratch and with the welding copper experience I have from making the distillation units, the faraday protection will be an easy build and sturdy as possible physically. I have plenty of copper scrap and will utilize it. Also will have a dumbed down machine hooked to the net for basic everyday communication, but this machine will not hold anything critical and will be considered “expendable”.

      I would urge those that can, to build their own machines. For example, a “custom” build if purchased will be as costly as $5000.00 plus. I can build the same if not better for around $1500.00. This will be with very good components and be very reliable.

      For an expendable machine, I’ll just buy a run of the mill cheap one.

      Storing information is critical in a manner that is safe from outside influence. I also believe in hard copies kept. Building a library both digital and with published or printed information.

      Here are some of the areas of information I will retain in library format.

      Gardening
      Animal husbandry and training
      Ethanol production
      Alternative medicine (I don’t mean sticking myself with needles)
      Emergency trauma medical information
      Survival, mainly military reference
      Electrical
      Communication
      Construction
      Engineering, of all disciplines
      Basic sciences and advanced, all branches
      Hunting
      Trapping
      Fishing
      Preservation/storage of food
      Water treatment, waste and various methods of making “potable”

      There are many others, too numerous to mention but am hoping we all can store or retain as much information as possible.

      I do not preach doom and gloom, but believe in “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”.

      I don’t call myself a “prepper”, I just try to be prepared, my grandparents were, their parents were. I personally think this “prepper” movement is a wise way of life as we move towards self reliance and to the way some of our ancestors thought. Depend on what we can do, not elsewhere.

      Wow. This article has really generated some ire and some very pissy responses. Take a deep breath. The knocks against various religions are pointless and do more harm than good (I say that as a devout pagan.) I would think that the people who come to this site would be the most prepared if the internet (and everything that goes along with it) collapses, even for a day. Whether it’s a real group or a government fake-out, the end result is the same. We are at the mercy (so they think) of groups beyond our immediate control. If it’s a real group flexing its techno-muscles, why are they attacking a tool that everyone uses, not just the government and the banks? They say they want to protect their “brothers and sisters” but if you burn down your enemy’s house and mine gets torched by the blowing ashes, how does that help me? And if it’s the government trying to raise the security level colors, there are too many people out there (though not enough) who know that it’s a scam and a shell game; a diversion to keep people from wondering about why there are chemtrails in the sky (you should have seen the geometric patterns in middle TN the past two days), why gas is sky-high (sorry, no pun intended) why grocery prices are so high and why troops have been recalled from Europe to be deployed who knows where. I would miss the net (Doonesbury, Netflix, Weather Channel and all the folks here) but I have books and cd’s and an EOD closet and would manage. Wouldn’t be the same, but certainly doable. Two good books to read when the net goes down: “Captains and the Kings” by Taylor Caldwell and “Little Green Men” by Christopher Buckley. Hang in there and hang together, or we shall surely hang separately.
