How To Setup An Operation | Anonymous

0 comments


1 Tips for setting up an operation

* You will likely have started an operation because you disagree with something. Rather than trying to fight the people that caused this, try to focus on what the thing is that you disagree with, and preventing that from happening (or, if that is your goal, spreading awareness). Revenge seldom has the intended result. Clearly think of what the issue is, and how it can be resolved.

* Even if you think you've read carefully, read everything on this form twice, and think about it a second time. The human brain has a habit of 'caching' answers to questions, and that may not always give you the best answer to a question. By thinking about it again, you force your brain to give a 'real' answer.

* Have clear communication channels. Even though Anonymous as a whole is a decentralized entity, it's typically a good idea to centralize the main organizational aspects of an operation, even if there is no set hierarchy. This makes it easier for people that are unfamiliar with how Anonymous works, to participate and learn more about both your operation, and Anonymous as a whole. An IRC channel is usually a good start, as is a Twitter feed. Try to stay away from websites that offer you free blogs, web hosting, or forums, unless you really know what you're doing - these websites tend to freeze your account at the first hint of controversy.

* Take the time to set up an operation. Most causes do not require you to respond in one or two days, so it's perfectly fine to spend a few days on organization and planning, before you actually do anything.

* Don't just mentally answer these questions! You should actually write down or type out the answers, to make sure you're not overlooking something.

2 Defining the main goals of your operation

Important: When defining the goal or goals of your operation, you should not take into account the ideas you have to carry out the operation! Doing so anyway will result in the common human habit of putting the cart before the horse (also known as 'reversed reasoning'), which will cause your operation to be less efficient than it could have been. In short: start from a blank canvas.

2.1 The cause of your operation
1 What 'undesired circumstance' caused you to set up this operation? Examples: the extradition of someone, the closing down of a website, arrests of activists, etc.
2 Who is responsible for this undesired circumstance? This can be a person or an organization.
 *If an organization was responsible, were there any specific employees or members of that organization that coordinated the decision? If yes, are they responsible for it or were they in a situation where they had no real choice?
3 Are there any further consequences of this undesired circumstance that will not go away, even if the undesired circumstance itself is gone?

2.2 The solution for your cause
1 What has to happen for the undesired circumstance to go away? Examples: the dismissal of a court case, the denying of an extradition request, etc.
2 If there were any further consequences that would not go away, even if the undesired circumstance itself would be gone, what would have to happen for these consequences to go away?

3 Defining possible solutions and courses of action

Take some time to think of ways to achieve what you mentioned in question 2.2.1. You should answer the following questions for each of the possible solutions you came up with. Try to avoid all solutions that have been attempted before by other operations, and only use those solutions as a last resort. Ideally, your solution should be original and tailor-made for this operation.

3.1 Basic details for the solution
 What does the solution consist of?
 Who can take part in the activities for this solution?
 How long does it take to carry out this solution? A rough estimate is good enough.
 What organizational structure is needed to carry out this solution? Examples: no hierarchy, a central leader, democratic voting, etc.
 What communication channels do you need for this solution? Examples: a forum, a Twitter feed, an IRC channel, etc.

3.2 Consequences of the solution
 1What will happen if you carry out this solution successfully?
 2What will happen if the solution is attempted, but fails in some way?
 3What are the risks for participants? Be honest here, don't try to romanticize your solution.
 4Compare the answer to 3.2.1 with the answer you gave to 2.2.1. Do the answers match?
   * If the answers do not match, this solution will not be optimal and it is likely you've put the cart before the horse, which is likely to make your operation fail. Try again with a different solution.

4 Summary of your operation

You can fill in this part to make it clear to participants what they are getting involved in, what the goals are, how they can help, and what they should watch out for.
 1What will participants be doing?
 2What are the risks of participating?
 3What is the intended goal?
 4How does your solution reach the goal?
 5Is there a backup plan?
 6Where can participants go to communicatie? Examples: the IRC channel, Twitter feed, forum, etc.

Good luck with your operation!

TOP 9 FREE VPN SERVICES OUT THERE !


What is a VPN?

A virtual private network (VPN) protects your data and identity

over public networks, like the Internet and wireless hotspots.

Various protocols are used to create an encrypted tunnel that

transports data securely. While a firewall may protect the data

on your computer, a VPN will protect your data on the Internet.

The goal of a VPN is to implement the same level of security

provided by private networks at substantially lower costs.


Why use a VPN?

Most VPN's are used to add anonimity, and that results in

security.
Public WIFI hotspots, common in airports and coffee shops, are

a hackers dream because they offer streams of visible data

waiting to be mined. Using a VPN keeps your information secure.

Also nowadays, many ISPs would like to analyze statistics from

your online activities for marketing and routing purposes.

Using a VPN blocks efforts to conduct deep packet inspections.

Similarly, search engines and social networking sites, like

Google and Facebook, are storing information about your online

habits indefinitely. Since a VPN provides the user with a

different IP address, these privacy invasions are also blocked.

VPN services provide different gateway cities where the IP

address assigned to your computer is located. This allows users

to access websites only available to users from a certain

country. This application is particularly important for

travelers who need to access websites from their home country

and for people living in regions rife with censorship, like

China and Iran.


So, using a VPN service is great to hide your anonimity online,

aswell as avoiding country blocks on websites.


Listed below you will find a compilation of the 9 best free VPN
(Virtual Private Network) services.

Our Message To The World


Dear Citizens of the World

For far too long cannabis has been oppressed by big corporations ,big pharma and governments when it could be benefiting all of mankind on many different levels. We have heard and we have watched your government lie and deceive you on all the dangers of cannabis. Show support by making your profile pictures green this April 20th on your social network profiles. OpCannabis phase 1, initiated. We are Anonymous.....Expect us.





---




Attention individual people, governments, companies and fellow Anons!


We are Anonymous and we have an important message for you:
Plato said that it was ok to tell a lie ONLY if it truly benefits all of mankind.
Plato called this lie the "noble lie."


For far too long there has been a lie that has been perpetrated but it is neither noble nor does it benefit all of mankind, actually quite the opposite...the cannabis plant is one of world's oldest and best medicines that has been known as beneficial for thousands of years!


It can replace many medicines and can be made into many different things such as plastics and fuels and paints etc. The bounds of this plant are limitless, we ALL are effected by illness such as cancer, diabetes, Crohn's disease, chronic pain, mental illness, alcohol abuse and a myriad of other physical and mental disorders.


Cannabis had been proven over and over to help or even cure and reverse the effects of these diseases that will affect us all at some point in our life! Yet it is kept from the people who need its curing powers by governments, big corporations, by big pharmaceutical companies because it is a threat to the money they make! They make more money off you being sick so they do not want you to have a cure, these people do not truly care about your wellbeing only the money they will make from your illness!


Since it is an easily grown plant that can be grown freely by anyone they have made it an illegal schedule 1 drug. Cannabis has been oppressed by the powers that be that are afraid of its true benefits, and these benefits do help all of mankind! So cannabis fits the criteria for Anonymous' support. We ask that all Anons and individuals please support the legalization efforts in any way possible! Even simply signing a petition or sharing info or even just having an open mind about the subject will help!


We ask you to please educate yourself on its many benefits and share these benefits with your sick or injured friends. We all know somebody that has cancer or diabetes and cannabis has helped or cured both and many other disorders! Anonymous will begin its support for the legalization of cannabis on 4/20/12. So please show your support by educating yourselves and making your profile pic or timeline banner on your social services accts green or 420 friendly.


We have all seen the power of the SOPA blackout so Anonymous feels that we can help cure the world simply by everyone showing their support for this most beneficial plant! We must end the prohibition of cannabis!! These oppressors make trillions of dollars off of the war on drugs by keeping their privately owned jails over crowded with nonviolent drug offenders!


We are approaching the 11 billion dollar mark that the government has spent on the drug war this year alone and have put millions of nonviolent offenders behind bars. This is a true crime against humanity and needs to end! Saying cannabis is a dangerous drug and is not a medicine is NOT a noble lie....it is simply a lie!


WE ARE ANONYMOUS.
WE ARE LEGION for legalization!
WE DO NOT FORGIVE the crimes of the War on Drugs.
WE DO NOT FORGET our brothers + sisters locked up because of it.
EXPECT US.

Securing your safety and anonymity online by the use of proxies

What are Proxies, and How are They useful?



If you were to take a close look at your Internet settings, you may notice an available option is a ‘proxy.” A proxy is nothing more than a tool your computer can use to protect you and your information. It can be thought of as a barrier; one that allows you to view websites and receive information from them without the website receiving your information.

A proxy can mean different things in computing sense, but the meaning most useful to you is "something that acts as a bridge or buffer between your computer and the web.

Why should I use a proxy?

You can use a proxy to unblock websites filtered by your office, or to protect your privacy and hide your IP address.
Some ddossing tools also have the option to insert proxies to hide your identity.

Now, there are different ways by using a proxy , but for anonimity online just by using your browser there are just a few steps to take.
You just have to google for "proxies with {insert your browser like firefox or explorer} " and you will soon find how to set your browser in the way which he will use a proxy.

But.... where do you get the proxy nrs. ?

well, we try to update as much as we can ( so before using the proxies,please test them first, they are scraped from search engines and thus many people use them, they burn out fast

WELCOME TO CISPA THE NEW TREATH TO INTERNET FREEDOM

0 comments
In its latest attempt at controlling the internet, Congress has unveiled a fresh, new SOPA-like bill called CISPA, or the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.,


If you download and distribute copyrighted material on the Internet, or share any information that governments or corporations find inconvenient, you could soon be labeled a threat to national security in the United States. That’s the aim of a bill in Congress called the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).,



The good news is that SOPA and PIPA haven’t come to pass, but the bad news is that they could be followed by a bill that is even more invasive and could violate even more of your civil liberties. According to a press release issued last week, the bill already has over a 100 congressional co-sponsors. Yet the bill is only now beginning to appear on the public radar.
CISPA would let companies spy on users and share private information with the federal government and other companies with near-total immunity from civil and criminal liability. It effectively creates a ‘cybersecurity’ exemption to all existing laws.



CISPA, however, is nothing like SOPA, despite its recent association in the media. While SOPA included provisions that would have essentially broken the Internet by allowing the U.S. to delete domains from a central registry system, CISPA does nothing of the sort, and aims more at “cyber threat intelligence” gathering than censorship and piracy prevention.


The bill presents itself as a simple enhancement of America’s cyber-security that would amend the National Security Act to include “cyber threat intelligence” gathering. To those ends, it would tear down the firewall between private corporate networks and the National Security Agency , enabling corporations to share data with the world’s most sophisticated spy apparatus.
CISPA is an excellent example of the federal government’s interest in obtaining online superiority in the domestic War on Terror. Control and access of bits is becomes as important as atoms in modern warfare. It is no surprise that governments are seeking to extend their jurisdiction into the realms of online social activity. The Internet’s ability to dispace our actions temporally as well as geographically makes existing laws difficult to enforce, or makes them obsolete. The third amendment makes it illegal to quarter soldiers in privates homes, but that does not mean the government is prohibited from running data-collecting software on the servers that run my personal web site or store my data. The foundations of the first amendment assumed that individuals’ speech and the press were restricted to national borders. CISPA and similar legislation is the beginning of a new kind of colonization. Governments and corporate entities are interested in maintaing online, the same sorts of controls that they had offline.

Anonymous : A Declaration of the Independence of CyberSpace

0 comments


Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, we come from the Internet, the new home of Mind.

On behalf of the future, we ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.

We have no elected government, nor are we likely to have one; therefore we address you with no greater authority than that with which liberty it always speaks. We declare the global social space we are building to be naturally independent of the tyrannies you seek to impose on us. You have no moral right to rule us, nor do you possess any methods of enforcement we have true reason to fear. You are toothless wolves among rams, reminiscing of days when you ruled the hunt, seeking a return of your bygone power.

Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. You have neither solicited nor received ours. We did not invite you. You do not know us, nor do you know our world. The Internet does not lie within your borders. Do not think that you can build it, as though it were a public construction project. You cannot. It is an act of nature and it grows itself through our collective actions.

We have watched as you remove our rights, one by one, like choice pieces of meat from a still struggling carcass, and we have collectively cried out against these actions of injustice. You have neither usage nor purpose in the place we hold sacred. If you come, you will be given no more and no less power than any other single person has, and your ideas will be given the same consideration anyone else would receive You are neither special, righteous, nor powerful here.

You have not engaged in our great and gathering conversation, nor did you create the wealth of our marketplaces. You do not know our culture, our ethics, or the unwritten codes that already provide our society more order than could be obtained by any of your impositions.

You claim there are problems among us that you need to solve. You use this claim as an excuse to invade our precincts. This claim has been used throughout the centuries by many an invading kingdom, and your claims are no different, nor do they ring any less hollow. Your so called problems do not exist. Where there are real conflicts, where there are wrongs, we will identify them and address them by our means. We are forming our own Social Contract. This governance will arise according to the conditions of our world, not yours.

The Internet consists of transactions, relationships and thought itself; arrayed like a standing wave in the web of our communications. It is the last truly free place in this world, and you seek to destroy even that freedom. Ours is a world that is both everywhere and nowhere, but it is not where bodies live.

We are creating a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth. A place where anyone, at any time, is as free to come and go, to say and be silent, and to think however they wish, without fear, as anyone else. There is no status beyond the merit of your words and the strength of your ideas.

We are creating a world where anyone anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.

Your legal concepts of property, expression, identity, movement, and context do not apply to us. They are all based on matter, and there is no matter here. There are only ideas and information, and they are free.

Our identities have no bodies, so, unlike you, we cannot obtain order by physical coercion. We believe that from ethics, enlightened self-interest, and the commonweal, our governance will emerge. Our identities may be distributed across many of your jurisdictions.

The only law that all our constituent cultures would generally recognize is the Golden Rule. We hope we will be able to build our particular solutions on that basis. But we cannot accept the solutions you are attempting to impose.

In the United States, you repeatedly try to pass unjust legislature in an attempt to restrict us. You disguise this legislature under a variety of different names, and pass excuses that they are for our own protection. We have watched you, time and time again; attempt to censor us under the guise of Copyright protection, or for the protection of Children. These laws come in many shapes and forms, in the name of ACTA, PIPA, COICA, SOPA, but their intentions remain the same. You seek to control what you cannot.

We scorn your attempt to pass these bills, and as a result, our discontent at your misaligned efforts grows each day.

You are terrified of your own children, since they are natives in a world where you will always be immigrants. Because you fear them, you entrust your bureaucracies with the parental responsibilities you are too cowardly to confront yourselves. In our world, all the sentiments and expressions of humanity, from the debasing to the angelic, are parts of a seamless whole, the global conversation of bits. We cannot separate the air that chokes from the air upon which wings beat.

In China, Germany, France, Russia, Singapore, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Greece, Egypt, Canada, the United States and many others you are trying to ward off the virus of liberty by erecting guard posts at the frontiers of the Internet. These may keep out the contagion for a small time, but they will not work in a world that is already blanketed in bit-bearing media.

Your increasingly obsolete information industries would perpetuate themselves by proposing laws, in America and elsewhere that claim to own speech itself throughout the world. These laws would declare ideas to be another industrial product, no different than pig iron.

In our world, whatever the human mind may create can be reproduced and distributed infinitely at no cost. The global conveyance of thought no longer requires your factories to accomplish.

These increasingly hostile and colonial measures place us in the same position as those previous lovers of freedom and self-determination who had to reject the authorities of distant, uninformed powers. We must declare our presence in the world we have created immune to your sovereignty, even as we continue to consent to your rule over our bodies. We will spread ourselves across the Planet so that no one can arrest our thoughts.

We will create a civilization of the Mind in the Internet. We have created a medium where all may partake in the forbidden fruit of knowledge, where egalitarianism reigns true. May our society be more humane and fair than yours.

We are the Internet.
We are free.

NOTE: If at any time you need help with any topic found in this guide, feel free to join us at http://goo.gl/8zxwO and you’ll be able to find someone to help you figure it out. It should be noted that this guide contains information that may be difficult to understand without an extensive technical and functional knowledge of information systems. While this guide does attempt to put it simply and in laymans terms, you the user are ultimatly responsible for the security of your own systems.

Section 2: Setting up Tor

Preface: Due to abuse in the past, users trying to connect to the AnonOps IRC servers using Tor will not be able to connect. This is nothing personal, there have just been problems with abuse of the program in the past on the IRC server. Therefore, we do not recommend using this for IRC connection, but merely as an easy to use tool for browsing the internet anonymously. Keep it in, for most users it’s a relatively slow connection.
Windows:
Go download Tor here: https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/
After downloading Tor:
1) Run the .exe
2) Extract to your PC.
3) You will now have extracted TOR into the selected folder. You should have a button called „Start Tor“ with an onion on it, click this to start (if you want you can make a shortcut by right-clicking create shortcut and drag it to your desktop, make sure the original stays in the same folder though).
4) You are good to go, if your ISP blocks connections to TOR and you need help setting up a bridge feel free to ask about it in the #OpNewblood channel, which again you can access through your web browser at this link: http://goo.gl/8zxwO
Linux:
1) Download Tor here: https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/linux/
2) Extract to destination of your choice
3) You should now be able to just click your start tor button to start.
4) For additional ease of use, try Tor Button for Firefox.
5) Once again for help with making a bridge if your ISP blocks Tor please ask for help in #OpNewblood via your web browser here: http://goo.gl/8zxwO
Mac OS X:
1) Download Tor here: https://www.torproject.org/dist/vidalia-bundles/
2) Mount the .dmg file and find it on your desktop
3) Move Vidalia to your applications folder
4) Download the Tor button for Firefox here: https://www.torproject.org/torbutton/index.html.en
5) Once you have both installed, run Vidalia and make sure it says „Connected to the Tor Network!“ and then go to your Firefox browser and right click on the indicator in the bottom right and click „Toggle Tor Status“
6) Read more on operating Tor here: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-osx.html.en
7) Once again for help with making a bridge if your ISP blocks Tor please ask in the #Opewblood channel via your web browser here: http://goo.gl/8zxwO
A NOTE FOR ALL OS’s:
1) To check anytime if TOR is working, you can go here: https://check.torproject.org/ and it will tell you if your TOR is working.
2) Highly reccomended is the TOR button for firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/torbutton/ which will allow you to turn tor on/off as well see if it’s disabled in your browser.
Anonymous Browsing Using Tor Button for Firefox
Start by install Tor on your computer and configuring it to your liking. Then, download the Tor Button add-on for Firefox, and use the options to configure the add-on the way you want it. Then, press the „Tor Button“ and go to a test website to ensure you’ve done it correctly. If the website returns properly anonymous results, then you’ve correctly set up Firefox for anonymous browsing through Tor. Also worth doing: hit Tools>Start Private Browsing whenever you are browsing with Tor. It stops logging your web history, caching files, passwords, cookies, and download history, so you don’t have to clear the history everytime you’re finished.
Troubleshooting: refer to www.torproject.org

Section 3: Firefox recommended Add-ons

Adblock Plus: This plugin blocks around 90% of internet services that attempt to track your web activity and then send you targetted ads. It’s crucial to use while browsing any aon websites or sites that have anon news articles, etc. http://goo.gl/fPmjm
NoScript: A very useful plugin that will disable javascript on sites to protect your privacy and stop malicious activity. Can set rules for individual sites or deny globally. http://noscript.net/
BetterPrivacy: This plugin is a tool to identify and remove cookies. It will also act as an „optout“ from advertisement and other forms of web tracking. http://goo.gl/TL79Z
FoxyProxy: An Addon to the default way to handle connecting to proxies, the FoxyProxy addon will allow you to have easier access to enabling your proxy tunnels, also has advanced features, such as setting up a list of domains that you will always want to use a proxy to connect to, and to do so automatically, while still using another connection for non-listed sites. http://goo.gl/VRiHT
Ghostery: Another tool to help manage and mitigate tracking cookies, Ghostery features tools that will alert you when there are tracking cookies on the websites you visit. You can also view information about each tracker that is trying to harvest your browsing data, and even view the source code of said tracker and see exactly how the cookie is tracking you. Make sure you get Fanboy list and Easy list to stay updated (these can be selected during setup or in the options of the addon itself ) http://goo.gl/GoKQ1
Greasemonkey (GM): A great addon that allows you to edit the way websites show information to you, using bits of javascript code. This is more of an addon „engine“ or development platform, allowing you to write and download scripts to do many different things using their addon. http://goo.gl/atGk7
HTTPS Everywhere: A Firefox extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts your communications with a number of major websites. http://goo.gl/fsKV


Section 4: Setting up i2p for IRC+Browsing
by cred

Section 4 table of contents:
4.1 Installation
a. Windows
b. Linux
4.2 Firefox Configuration
4.3 IRC Client Configuration
4.4 I2p IRC on Android via irssi connectbot
—————————————————————————–
4.1a) I2p Installation: Windows
1) Download:
You can download the latest version of the i2p software here:
http://www.i2p2.de/download.
2) Installing:
In windows, the installation, as with any other windows software, is relatively
straightforward. Double click on i2pinstall_(version).exe that you downloaded from the above website and follow the instructions.
3) Launching the router:
After the install has completed, you can access your router console (control panel for i2p software, in the form of a website) even when you’re not actively using the i2p proxy by doubleclicking the „Start I2p“ icon or by following http://127.0.0.1:7657 For those not versed in how the internet works, 127.0.0.1 is an IP address that always leads to Localhost, or webservices that are running on your machine. As long as you are connecting to that address, no other anonymizing software is needed, since you are only talking to your own machine.
4) Browsing I2p:
In order to access .i2p websites, or eepsites, you’ll have to set up i2p as a PROXY on your web browser of choice, instructions for this on Firefox are in section 4.2
4.1b) I2p Installation: Linux
1) Easy way: Ubuntu.
  • Open a Terminal and enter:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
  • Get the latest install package (yes, the .exe file, don’t ask, it’s java.) from http://www.i2p2.de/download. In the terminal window, navigate to the folder where you downloaded the .exe file and enter:java -jar i2pinstall-*.exe
  • Follow the prompts
2) Other distributions:
Google instructions for installing the java JRE software on your distribution, typically it’s not much more difficult than with Ubuntu, but different distros have their own package management systems, and the commands might be slightly different.
Once Java is installed, it’s the same command as Ubuntu:
java -jar i2pinstall-*.exe
4.2) Firefox Configuration
1) Verify it’s running:
Once the i2p client is installed, you can verify it’s running an http:// tunnel by
going to http://127.0.0.1:7657/i2ptunnel/ Under the „I2p Client Tunnels“ section, the first entry should be „I2p HTTP Proxy“. On the right, under the „Status“ column, there are three little stars, one red, one yellow, and one green. If red is lit up, hit the „start“ button to the right of it, If it’s yellow, you don’t have enough peer connectionsyet, and you should let it establish a presence on the network. Leave it alone and grab a sandwich, it should be ok in an hour or two.
2) Set up localhost as a proxy
Goto Edit>Preferences
Goto the Advanced section
Under Connections click the Settings button
Select „Manual Proxy Configuration“
Enter the following:
  • HTTP Proxy: 127.0.0.1 Port: 8118
  • SSL Proxy: 127.0.0.1 Port: 8118
  • SOCKS Host: 127.0.0.1 Port: 9050
  • SOCKS V5 checked
  • No Proxy for: 127.0.0.1
4.3) Various IRC Client configuration
IRC Clients need no special setup or proxies. Just visit your
http://127.0.0.1:7657/i2ptunnel/ and make sure IRC Proxy is running. If it is, justconnect to 127.0.0.1 on port 6668 like it’s a normal IRC server. Your client will sendall data to the proxy that’s running on your machine on port 6668, which will then send it, via I2p, anonymously and securely to the i2p IRC servers. You may enter additional .i2p irc servers by clicking on IRC Proxy on the Tunnel manager page and pasting the addresses in the „Tunnel Destination“ field (comma seperated).Take a look at this list of clients and choose the one that sounds right for you:
Windows: http://www.ircreviews.org/clients/platforms-windows.html
Linux: http://www.ircreviews.org/clients/platforms-unix-x.html
(This author is a proud owner of a Ubuntu box, chatting on Xchat)
4.4) Fun shit
1) If you have a Linux machine, you can connect to the i2p irc servers through your home computer from your Android phone from anywhere in the world.
  • openssh for Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install openssh-server
  • irssi for Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install irssi
2) open irssi connectbot on your android and enter [your linux username]@yourip:port
Now, since most people are behind a firewall, or a router, or something, there’s
probably some port forwarding you’re going to have to do, but for now, just connect to your own wireless router with your android’s wifi. It’s safer anyway.
3) First thing you want to do is login with your password (that’s why it’s better to do it locally before doing it over the web… Make sure you’ve got encryption on your wifi, by the way)
4) Once you have a command prompt on your android, hit the back button to get back to the host list, then the menu button, and tap „Manage Pubkeys“ Hit the menu again, and select „generate“. Name your key, make it RSA and give it at least a 1024 bit hash, (I go to 2048, you can’t be too careful) No password, and hit „Generate“
5) Now it will have you fuck around with your touchpad to generate randomness, and create your pubkey. Once you’re back on the pubkey list with your new pubkey, longpress on it and select „Copy Public Key“
6) Now hit the back button and click your host connection in the host list, which will bring you back to your command prompt. Enter cat „(hit menu and select paste to paste your pubkey into these quotes)“ >> .ssh/authorised.keys
7) Now enter exit which will take you back to your server list, and disconnect you. Tap your server to connect again, and this time, it should not ask you for a
password. This means you are connected using a shared 1024 bit (at least)
pubkey, which ain’t bad.
8) To connect from outside your home network, you need a few more things:
  • Your external IP address: http://www.whatismyip.com
  • Port forwarding to port 22 on your machine (if you have a router and multiple machines on your home network as most do) See step 9
9) Most routers are set up with a web interface for changing settings. If you have
wireless security enabled, then you or whoever set up your home network for you, have already accessed the web interface, and should have set up a password. You’ll need to log into that web interface, go to the section on port forwarding, and forward an available external port (22 will do) to port 22 on your machine’s local IP address (usually 192.168.1.101 or something) for BOTH tcp and udp. This is as clear as I can make it without router specific instructions. (Talk to your router provider or local geek for help in this regard)
10) Now all you need to do is connect through irssi connectbot to (your
username)@(your external IP address):(port you set up to forward to ssh on your
machine)
11) Once you’re connected to a ssh server on your home computer (which by now
should be running i2p) you may launch irssi, a command line irc client, and connect to the i2p servers with irssi using:
/connect 127.0.0.1 6668

Section 5: Advanced IRC Commands

5.1) Commands
1) /join
Self explanatory, this is used to join a channel, to join #opnewblood , you would type /join #opnewblod
2) /me
Not really as necessary, but used sometimes. for instance if you wanted to wave at someone, you would type /me waves it would appear as „anon waves“
3) /msg
if you want to have a conversation with a specific person outside of the channel the best thing to do is message them, just type /msg username message here. just make sure to use a space between their name and the message.
4) /query
Same thing as msg, except this will open up a new window for you to have a conversation with this person.
5) /nick
This command will change your nickname for instance if you wanted to be called gigapuddi you’d type /nick gigapuddi. Remember though if you do this you won’t be registered unless you re-register with nickserv (see the walkthrough to anon if you dont know what nickserv is, or want help with it)
6) /quit
This will let you quit.
7) /ignore
Trolls are plenty, and it’s best not to feed them, and just ignore them. To ignore someone type /ignore username
8) /whois
This will display information about the person you selected, such as their vhost, what channels they’re in ect. to find a whois just type /whois username
9) /away
To mark yourself away, you can use this, if you were persay making a sandwich, you could do /away making sammiches and people will know you’re making sandwiches.
10) /ping
This is to see the latency to the server, if you’re lagging this might give you more information, to ping a server just type /ping ipadresshere
11) /notify on/off
This will change if you get a notification (a beep sound) whenever someone types your name. to turn off /notify off to turn on do /notify on
12) /topic
If you want to see a topic in a certain channel just type /topic and it will read it out to you.
13) /list
Lists the channels that are available to you.
5.2) Browsing IRC
NickServ
When you arrive on the IRC for the first time, you will be using an unregistered nickname. If you plan on becoming a regular user, it is vital to register your nick. This is important for several reasons:
  • It ensures that nobody can impersonate you.
  • It grants you various abilities which non registered users do not have
  • (Most importantly) It allows you to use a vhost – this hides your location and ISP information from other users.
To register your nickname, refer to the IRC guide for your operating system on the original #OpNewblood page.
When you connect to the server, type /msg nickserv IDENTIFY password
This will tell nickserv that you are the real owner of your nickname. If you do not do this, you will not have access to registered-only chans or your vhost. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you type the command in your status window so, in the event of an error on your part, you do not post your password to an entire channel.
Groups
If you plan to use more than one nickname, you can group them together. This has several uses, the main ones being to tell people where you are connecting from, or that you are away.
For example: a user called „JohnDoe“ might be going out for a while but leaving his laptop on, in which case he could change his nick to JohnDoe|Away or JohnDoe|AFK to let other users know he was away. This is important so as, for example, people will know why you are not replying to messages. He might also use the nick JohnDoe|Mobile to let people know he is on a mobile client, and therefore cannot use certain functions such as possibly recieving PMs or visiting links people might send him.
To change your nick, type /nick newnick. However, when you do this, you will lose any access levels, vhost, and other settings associated with your nick.
To avoid this, when you choose your new nickname, switch to it using /nick, then type /msg nickserv GROUP nick password – where nick and password are your MAIN nick and its password. This ensures that these nicks will share passwords and settings.
Ghosts
Let’s face it, sometimes shit happens. Sometimes your internet connection will randomly decide to die on you. Sometimes your laptop’s battery might run out, sometimes your IRC client will crash, sometimes you might accidentally close a window. There are many reasons one might suddenly find themselves accidentally disconnected from the IRC.
The problem is that unless someone signs off in „an orderly fashion“, the server will not actually realize they are gone. Think of it like somebody who puts down a phone and walks away, but without hanging up the call. Or like when your computer crashes without shutting down the correct way. In these circumstances, the IRC server does not realize you’re gone, and assumes your nick is still connected. This situation remains until the next time the IRC pings your nick and gets no response (‘ping timeout’). This can take a while though, and very often the person who has disconnected, will manage to get themselves back online before the server has time to realize they ever left in the first place. When this happens, the user’s nick is already in use, so the server will assign them a new one (usually just by adding a ` or _ to the end, so if JohnDoe tries to connect when there is already a JohnDoe connected, they will be signed on as JohnDoe_ or JohnDoe`.
The problem with this, of course, is that just like an un-identified nick, these nicks have no modes, no vhosts, no access levels – because the „ghost“ of the nick is still occupying them.
To force the dead session to disconnect and replace its nick with yours, type /msg nickserv GHOST password, where password is the pass to the original nick. This would, in this example, disconnect JohnDoe and change JohnDoe_ to JohnDoe automatically, identifying and setting up the nick as normal. When this happens, you will probably see something like this in the channel:
JohnDoe left the chat room (GHOST command used by JohnDoe_)
JohnDoe_ is now known as JohnDoe
It is very important to do this as quickly as possible when re-connecting, as you will be locked out of your vhost until you have done this.
Vhosts
Obviously one of the main priorities of any Anonymous is to be, well… Anonymous.
When you connect to our IRC server, the server will automatically mask your IP address (your computer’s „phone number“). This is the most important layer of anonymity, but unfortunately there is a catch. Most of the time, it will NOT automatically hide your ISP (Internet Service Provider)’s name. So for example the fact that your IP is from a certain town might be hidden, the fact that you are a comcast customer may not be.
To rectify this, we have a vHostServ. It gives you a fake host name, which masks the true ISP you are connecting through. It can be anything you want – for instance, if anyone ever tries to check where I am connecting from, they will see „fuck.off.you.bollocks“ instead. :D
To get a vHost, you must be registered and identified. This is why it is CRUCIAL that you identify ASAP when you connect, as your vHost will not be activated until you have done so.
How to get a vHost :
1. Type /join #vhost in your IRC.
2. Once inside the vHost channel, type !vhost (insert.clever.name.here).
NOTE : You can, indeed, use whatever you want as a vhost – provided it is a valid one, i.e. no spaces, and must contain at least one dot. The most common way to do this therefore is.to.use.dots.as.spaces.in.your.vHost.
When you have done this, vHostServ will automatically kick and ban you from the #vhost channel. This is normal and expected, and simply means the vHost as worked. You will be banned from the channel (#vhost) for a certain amount of time, after which you will be able to change your vHost if you like. Now that you have a vhost, you are fully set up to use the IRC, any other settings you may set on your nick are purely optional.
*Note: If you join a #chan before you vHost, your new anonymized information will not automatically update in the channel. Be sure to exit and rejoin any channels you are connected to after you vHost, or your real connection information will still be viewable.
**NOTE: If you use Xchat along with auto-join channels, you can tell xchat to wait longer before joining channels on server connect using the /set irc_join_delay X command, where X is the number of seconds xchat will wait before joining channels. Setting this to something like 10 seconds helps if you’re using automatic channels
Invite-only channels (mode +i)
Some channels, for various reasons, are invite-only. Commonly this is because the channel has a very specific purpose and only users who have a specific job in the channel can access it – for example, there are private channels for operators and hackers. Sometimes, a channel will also be set to +i if it is being invaded or flooded by bots or trolls.
If a channel is +i, you will not be able to join it using /join. You will simply get an error message telling you that the channel is invite only. However, if you are an operator yourself, or are on the invite exception list, you can force the server to let you in.
To do this, you send a message to another bot called ChanServ, which is not covered in this guide as in general only more advanced users will ever need to use it. However, to request an invite, type /msg chanserv INVITE #channel, where #channel is the channel you are trying to connect to. It is important to include the # at the start of the channel name, or ChanServ won’t recognize it.
If you are on the list, you will then gert a message asking you if you would like to join the channel. Otherwise, chanserv will tell you that you do not have permission.
If you are NOT on the invite or operator list for a channel, but you feel you should be allowed in to it anyway, you can type /knock message, where message is your message to the channel admins. So for instance, if there was a channel called #brits only for British people, and you didn’t have access, you could type /knock #brits Hey, I’m British, let me in!
This will send a message to the channel admins, and cause your message to appear in the channel. The admins will then (if they decide to let you in), send you an invite just like chanserv does. You will receive the same message you would receive from chanserv asking you if you would like to join the channel.
NOTE: Knocking on a channel 10 times in a row is not going to amuse anyone. In all likelihood, it will actually make it almost certain that you will NOT be invited into the channel. If you receive no invite it either means the admins are not active at that time, or have decided for whatever reason not to invite you. If it does happen, you could maybe try again later, but don’t knock 10 times in one minute, this is more likely to get you banned.
If no one replies to your knock, another option you have is to type /msg chanserv INFO #channel, where #channel is the name of the channel (again, include the # or chanserv will ignore your message). This will tell you what the channel is for, and who created it. You could then message the room founder and ask for access, but this is generally not recommended unless it is extremely urgent.

Section 6: Advanced Defense Techniques

USING Virtual Machines
It is strongly recommend you consider making a Virtual Machine (VM) to seperate your personal OS instance with you anon activity OS instance. This ensures that personal data does not leak while viewing anon related social media on such sites as Twitter or Facebook.
It has several other advantages such as allowing you to quickly delete all anon activity off your computer by simply deleting the VM itself.
Virtual Machine Software
VirtualBox – x86 and x64
VMWare Workstation 7 – x86 and x64
Windows Virtual PC – x86
etc. (do a google search for „virtual machine)
DISK ENCRYPTION
Disk encryption is another way to protect yourself. Disk encryption software will make it pretty much impossible for any one but yourself to access the data on any physical disk.
Disk Encryption Software
TrueCrypt – http://www.truecrypt.org/
Bitlocker – (Win 7 Ultimate only)
File and Email encryption and validation (added by cred)
Using the openPGP standard, the following software creates a „Keyring“ for you, bound to your name and email address (neither of which needs to be real, I have two, one for my real life identity and another as cred) The private key is a password protected key you keep on any system on which you will be DECRYPTING information; your home computer, and if you’re brave, your Android phone. The public key is used to ENCRYPT information or files, and is available to anyone. So if you wanted to encrypt information to send to me, you’d have to search from my public key, (cred@mail.i2p will find it for you) encrypt the data with it, and send it to me. The only thing that can now recover that data is my private key and password. PGP is the industry standard for high level encrypted email.

Section 8: ADVANCED GUIDE TO HACKING AND SECURITY VULNERABILITY

by Denizen

Preface: Information in this section can be extremely confusing for new users, and those without the sufficient technical knowledge to understand. Always be cautious when tinkering with systems you don’t fully understand, as this may lead to undesirable results, detection, and in extreme cases system failure or legal trouble.
For those interested, an excellent guide to Denial of Service Attacks or DDoS can be found here: http://insurgen.cc/index.php?title=DDOS

Guide By: Denizen
As the ultimate denizen, you must be able to enter systems at will in various ways. There are many ways to reach a website, and to add protection for yourself in terms of anonimity and minimized vulnerability.

1. USING PUTTY TO SETUP AN SSH TUNNEL
http://oldsite.precedence.co.uk/nc/putty.html
Normal connections to the internet, unless using SSL, are typically unencrypted transmissions divided into data packets. Using a packetsniffer, it is possible to capture most packets, and look at their payload in plain text. This can include usernames, emails, IM’s, and sometimes even passwords and sensitive information. When you set up a tunnel securely, you are connecting to a secure, encrypted connection to the machine you are connecting to, helping to prevent the use of packetsniffers to steal your information.
Not only is this useful for keeping your local connection to the internet secure, it is also one of the basic ways you can hide which IP address you are connecting to the internet from at home. When using the tunnel for your transmissions, all of your packets will have that machine’s IP address on the source address section instead of your own. Again, as covered above, you cannot trust a VPN (SSH) provided at no cost. It is in your best interests to use a paid hosting provider.
2.OPENVPN GNU/LINUX HOWTO (what if they don’t have linux) list alternatives for vpn/ instructions for other os’s?)
Information on how to set up a GNU/Linux system to use open VPN can be found here: http://openvpn.net/howto.html (openvpn only secures you between your server and you, not between your server and the internet. your server will be the middle man and is identifieable unless augmented with additional obfuscation techniques)
3. USING SOCKS4/5 PROXIES WITH FIREFOX
If you’re interested in using SOCKS 4/5 proxies with the Firefox browser, you can find instructions here: http://uniqueinternetservices.com/configure-proxy-for-firefox.html
4. CHANGING LOCAL DNS SERVICES
This section explains how to change the nameserver that resolves domain names into IP adresses that is sometimes used as an ideal way to trace you by your ISP, even if the data you used is encrypted via RSA or a strong triple des encryption the request to the domain name to an ip still is carried out by someone, make sure it’s you, or someone friendly.
DNS requests in an ideal situation should be encrypted, if you’re super paranoid, and some proxies offer this. I can’t list which ones off the top of my head, sorry.
http://dnscurve.org/in-benefits.html ?
5. CHANGING WINDOWS HOSTNAMES PERMANENTLY
This hackers trick is a good way to associate a permanent IP mirror for your favourite social networking site like facebook, twitter, etc etc. If this is something you’re interested in, more information can be found here: http://www.ehow.com/how_5225562_edit-windows-hosts-file.html
If you want cannabis.com to goto 4.2.2.1 then you can enter it just like the
localhost 127.0.0.1 entry you’ll find in your windows setup. This bypasses nameserver requests to most browsers (check to be sure with a packet sniffer)
6. MISC PACKET CAPTURE SECTION
All of these need PCap drivers installed and are included in the downloads of each…
Understanding packets takes time and practice. To get started install a copy of wireshark (http://www.wireshark.org/); or MS Network Monitor 3.4, both are free. If you don’t see any capture interfaces listed then you may need to run it as administrator. To identify which interface is seeing your traffic click the first (top-left) icon „list available interfaces“ and look for the one with the numbers counting up; it’s the active one. Start it and watch all the packets flow. You might see lots of traffic, start closing shit that’s downloading or streaming stuff. You’ll get down to a slower scroll of ARP and NetBios traffic, the occasional UPNP burst and other stuff. If you’re on a secure VPN or something you’ll see just about ALL SSL/TLS grey colored packets or all UDP blue packets in some cases. Try another active interface (like a TAP interface) to see the goods. Get on your home network and play around; see what DHCP handshakes look like, DNS requests/responses, navigate a shared folder and see what it shows you, stuff like that. If you know how, do an nmap scan and see how obvious and loud it is and learn techniques to use it in a more covert manner.
http://www.wireshark.org/docs/ <- read and watch the videos. There’s a lot to it but once you catch on it’s quite simple to grasp.
TCPDump(linux)/WinDump(windows) – Command line packet capture for gathering to analyze later. http://www.tcpdump.org/ and http://www.winpcap.org/windump/
NetworkMiner (http://networkminer.sourceforge.net/) is an alternative that allows you to sort collected packets however you want (by host for example) for easy digging around.
7. TCP/IP AND THE WIDER INTERNET

  • Change DNS Settings in Windows XP
Network Layers & OSI Model
In order for a security expert to truly understand a software or hardwares running on a network or security system, they must be able to relate to and fully conceive the implications of changes that are made to an existing setup.
No matter what you do at any level of the network layer, you will be interacting at other levels also. E.g. The data link layer (Layer 2 OSI) must make use of the physical layer (Layer 1 OSI), and so on.
Layer 1 : Physical layer
This is the electrical and physical specification of the devices. In particular it will refer to pins, voltages, repeaters, hubs, network adapters, host bus adapters and SANs (Storage Area NEtworks). Standards such as the RS-232C Com port standard popularised in the 90′s uses such physical wires to access medium.
One such popular medium would be the internet. To which the early modems connected.
Layer 2 : Data Link Layer
The Data Link Layer provides functional and procedural means to transfer data between network entities using physical layers (or cabling/adapters/routers/repeaters) so on and so forth. Originally Layer 2 was intended for point 2 point transfer only. LAN and multi-broadcast media (multicast et al) were developed independant of the ISO standard (IEEE 802).
WAN and LAN are services on the data link layer that arrange bits, from physical layer into logical fram sequences.
These frames contain important information that is relative to your Transmission Control Protocol, and includes information such as your IP (Internet Protocol) address.
This address is binded through service levels by the TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) transport layer.
8. Hack in a sack:
The Metasploit Framework
Metasploit is a software suite created for penetration testing, and is included in both Backtrack and Gnacktrack LiveCDs listed in the mobile solutions section. It has a command line interface, a GUI interface, and a Web interface, creating what is, in a real way, the world’s first point-and-click hacking software. It has a massive, constantly updated Database of usable exploits, which you can use to gain access to vulnerable remote systems. http://www.metasploit.com/
