Hacking Group From Russia, China Claims Credit For Massive Cyberattack

October 22, 2016

Share
A hacker group from China and Russia claimed responsibility for a massive cyberattack that caused outages on popular websites from the U.S. east coast to Europe and Asia on October 21.

New World Hackers claimed responsibility for the attack via Twitter, though U.S. authorities said they could not verify the claim. They said they organized networks of "zombie" computers to throw 1.2 terabits per second of data at servers managed by Dyn Inc.

"We didn't do this to attract federal agents, only test power," two group members who identified themselves as "Prophet" and "Zain" told AP via Twitter. They said more than 10 members participated in the attack.

The two told AP that 30 people have access to the @NewWorldHacking Twitter account that claimed responsibility for the attack. They said 20 are in Russia and 10 in China."

Well, well, well.

Keep your gas tank full.

Eventually they're going after the grid.

I can only hope suitable retaliation is forthcoming.

You do indeed have the background to speak with authority, and are an asset to readers here.

Anyways - a little more snooping - came up with this - -

New World Hacking, Anti-ISIS Vigilantes, Say They Knocked Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter And BBC News Offline
BY JEFF STONE @JEFFSTONE500 ON 01/04/16 AT 8:11 AM

Most relavent text (imo) in there follows below . . .

/snip/

“We are based in the U.S., but we strive to take down ISIS-affiliated websites, also ISIS members,” one self-identified member of New World Hacking said in a series of tweets to the BBC after that DDoS. “We realize sometimes what we do is not always the right choice, but without cyber hackers ... who is there to fight off online terrorists? The reason we really targeted the BBC is because we wanted to see our actual server power.”

A typical DDoS attack doesn't involve a data breach, but uses a botnet (an army of Internet-connected computers that have been secretly taken over by hackers) to take a target site offline. . . . "

"We are based in the U.S. . . . "

Makes one ponder . . .

Linky works fine now.
Try, try again, and all that.
Funny none of the "blame America" stuff is in there.

12. OK - you edited the link . . .I put that link in the wrong spot in my post -

I've edited my post WITH the link where I got the text about them being in the US.

BTW - I'm not blaming America - It's just that the GROUP is based in the USA -

Here it is again - with more of the text

"A typical DDoS attack doesn't involve a data breach, but uses a botnet (an army of Internet-connected computers that have been secretly taken over by hackers) to take a target site offline. It's an old, unsophisticated method of cybercrime often meant to deliver a message rather than make a profit. The same method was used to knock DonaldJTrump.com offline for an hour Saturday, with New World Hackers replacing the intended campaign message with an “error” message."

The significant part in there is "A typical DDoS attack doesn't involve a data breach, but uses a botnet (an army of Internet-connected computers that have been secretly taken over by hackers) to take a target site offline"

So the owners of them computers don't even know - They could have chosen Africa or Canada fur chrissakes . . . .
But - seeing s the USA seems so paranoid of China and Russia nowadays - why not feed the frenzy . . ? ?

As one other poster in this thread indicated,

so gullible . . .

15. Here's some food for thought -

Cyber "Attacks" Which Crippled US Internet, Came (mostly) from INSIDE the USA; specifically a US AFB in KS

Post by Newsroom - Oct 22, 2016

https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/2296

As of 2:00 AM EDT on Sat., Oct. 22, Cyber-Sleuths are still working to mitigate ongoing "attacks"causing massive Internet outages across the U.S. all day. But a troubling pattern is emerging: The attacks originate (mostly) INSIDE the U.S.

According to the automated attack-monitoring-map offered by FortiGuard, much of today's Internet trouble was caused by attacks launched against Data Centers in Boston, New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco and Seattle. But the largest bursts of these attacks originated repeatedly from . . . . Wichita, Kansas.

/snip/

According to the public web site of McConnell Air Force Base, the first -and perhaps most important function -- of that base is . . . the 184th Intelligence Wing. "Intelligence" as in . . . information . . . . as in . . .computers! HMMMMM.

The live attack-map offered by Fortiguard allows anyone to watch the attacks in real time. There's a link below for you to see for yourself, but we can tell you that several lengthy sessions of watching these attacks has revealed the US is attacking itself. MASSIVE bursts of attack data come from Witchita to Boston, then New York, then to San Francisco, then Los Angeles, and frequently to Seattle. Seconds later, these cities seem to "return fire" back against Wichita with MASSIVE bursts of data. Here are a few examples:

______________________________________________________________________________

Repeat this please?

"According to the public web site of McConnell Air Force Base, the first -and perhaps most important function -- of that base is . . . the 184th Intelligence Wing. "Intelligence" as in . . . information . . . . as in . . .computers! HMMMMM. "

Color me SHOCKED -

Shocked I tell ya . . . .

17. In the middle of doing my snoop thing (related)

stumbled on this

http://threatmap.fortiguard.com/

and

https://threatmap.fortiguard.com/

In a drop down window I managed to save this text:

(It was a bugger to get - NO right-clicking magic on that one - Good thing I remembered all that Ctrl A - S and V stuff - then posted it to Notepad - got rid of some of the messed up formatting, then Word to make it half decent again!)

Although I looked at the interactive map - with the scrolling reports- I SUSPECT the lists are of the recipients of the attacks - NOT the origins?

Do you know about this organization - it Is mentioned in that site you say is not reputable - but even sites that post crap - sometimes get it right -

I studied the post from superstaion95 again - and they DO have a link to the above, but it's not similar to the apparent screengrab they did of Kansas.

If nothing else - maybe I. or someone - will learn how to read those fortiguard maps?

18. Internet network blocks without good geolocation information

that are part of blocks assigned to specific country registrars are usually considered as being in the center of the country for mapping purposes.

Which is why it always looks like Kansas is giving and catching hell.

Not only can I read the map, I've built a few of them.

8. At this point they don't care

if the narrative's true or not.

They're oblivious to the ramifications.

They just want to be on the bullies' side.

10. Yup - it's a different attack - but the same group, New World Hacking

I had too many windows open and put the wrong link in there

From the same link you used, is the one i just updated my post with is theone where i got the info

and also in there is

" Both attacks, on websites belonging to the BBC and Donald Trump, were carried out by New World Hacking, an obscure group that supports Anonymous."

and can be in different countries? For that matter, anyone can claim credit for anything.

13. Absolutely - It indicates that in the older attack article

A typical DDoS attack doesn't involve a data breach, but uses a botnet (an army of Internet-connected computers that have been secretly taken over by hackers) to take a target site offline.

They coulda been in my basement (I actually don't have one ) for all the world knows,

or YOURS.

Good hackers hide their trails.

And unless one is confident they cannot be easily traced - they'd sure be foolish to claim as they've done about fucking with the web - especially in the land of the SuperPower!

It still would not surprise me that this "Group" is a psyop of one of the USA's alphabet soup agencies . . .

ANYTHING to distract from the farce of this election cycle - - -

It's a global joke . . . .

and a shame.
