As written in the second link given:
- Why SSANZ?
Owned by a kid who claims he can manage, secure and audit servers,
he offers a service that he clearly cannot provide, we are against that.
It is a little "weird" that first sites such as imageshack, blackhat forums and astalavista were hacked and now such a - compared to the others - small site. Also on the first mentioned sites there was "just a hack" but on ssanz it says
[...] Data has been erased & Backups erased. [...]
which doesn't fit either.
As anti-sec group is currently discussed on many news sites.. more links which may interest someone:http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=854441http://ptc-investgations.blogspot.com/2009/07/mega-cash-zone-megacashzonecom-scam.htmlhttp://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=871938http://www.gpforums.co.nz/showthread.php?s=&postid=6198073
Also note statements with different goals:
This is primarily to prove that we are serious and committed to our primary goal - eradicating full-disclosure of computer vulnerabilities and exploits, and terminating general discussion of hacking for any n00b and script-kiddie to read and review - and learn from.
We are coming for you hackforums.net...and Milw0rm.com. We haven't forgotten you, Milw0rm. Our juicy Apache 0-day will terminate both websites, which will cause a major blow to those who support full-disclosure of hacking related information.
In 48 hours, the anti-sec movement will publicly unveil working exploit code and full details for the zero-day OpenSSH vulnerability we discovered. It will be posted to the Full-Disclosure security list.http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/07/20/anti_sec_spoof/
