Skip to comments.Anonymous threatens to take down State of the Union livestream (teleprompter hacked?)
Posted on 02/12/2013 3:44:44 PM PST by Libloather
According to a threat posted on Anonymous information website Anon Relations.net, the loosely banded hacker collective will attempt to disrupt the State of the Union address Tuesday by preventing it from being broadcast online.
The AnonRelations.net post cites a litany of offenses as motive for the threatened attack, from "tyrannical" legislation to the treatment of Internet heroes like Aaron Swartz and Bradley Manning. It goes on to state that hackers will "form a virtual blockade between Capitol Hill and the Internet," although onlookers may be skeptical of the group's ability to do this. A recent campaign against Israel during the Gaza conflict did not manage to take down any primary government sites, though several sub-sites and state-related companies were defaced or brought down.

Could get dicey here tonight, we’ll see.
You’ll impress me when you turn off the lights at the capital building.
They should hack TOTUS and do the speech in phonetic Klingon.
obozo is so stupid he will say whatever TOTUS prints..
If the teleprompter gets neutralized, does that mean that Joe Biden is President now?
Worst thing that could happen!!!!
0bama gets his “crisis” to use the Executive Order for CyberSecurity!!!!
Anonymous is in cahoots...not opposed too squat!
Sounds to me like the left is trying to drum up some interest and boost the number of viewers.
I would like to see them do this... It would have stood a better chance of success if they had just done it and not talked about before hand.
They are not doing it!!!
C’mon FR you are all better than this!!!!
0bama needs his cyber security crisis for the Executive Order slated to be released this week!
This is being pulled off by the regime!
Be my guest. Planned on missing this crapfest anyhow.
Right after the cybersecurity mention...
upload the TelePrompTer with a Reagan speech
This is apparently the same Anonymous that was all over the highschool football rape scandal in Ohio? According to the article they are upset over the treatment of Bradley Manning too> sometimes you can’t predict the politics of people on the basis of a single act......
They’ll just post YouTube videos, hack some stupid unsecured website, and wear Epic Fail Guy masks (copyright Time Warner).
With you on all of that.
I would much rather watch paint dry than listen to this tonight!
For once I’m hoping Anonymous succeeds.
