The current internet climate is all about internet activism more commonly known as hacktivism, with the current antics of groups such as lulzsec and Anomymous in the start of this year we have decided to start covering the events.

Paypal collected 1000 IP addresses of those carrying out AnonymousDDoS attacks against PayPal last December.

I’m not 100% sure but I’m quite sure that the FBI the (federal bureau of investigation) doesn’t have jurisdiction from all-over the world so I’m going to assume that the IP addresses are American.

It’s also probably safe to assume that not all of these IP addresses are from the hackers as most hackers that understand what a bot net is and what it is used for.

An FBI affidavit suggests they have a large amount of people still to be arrested. An FBI agent Chris Thompson is quoted saying.

PayPal security officials were in close contact with the bureau beginning 6 December, two days after PayPal froze WikiLeaks‘ donation account and the first day it began receiving serious denial-of-service traffic.

FBI agents began monitoring Anonymous press releases while PayPal collected traffic logs on a Radware intrusion prevention system installed on its network.

I believe the method they will use to determine what packets are malicious will be the query strings such as “wikileaks,” “goof,” and “goodnight” as they can be easily determine to not be network errors but directed towards a goal.
