Anonymous group take down child porn sites

Well known hacking group Anonymous will be popular this week as they claim to have taken down 40 child pornography websites while publishing the names of 1,500 people involved. This happened around a week ago but has just surfaced at the weekend.

They posted statements on pastebin saying that they got the information by “browsing the Hidden Wiki we noticed a section called Hard Candy which was dedicated to links to child pornography. We then removed all links on the website, within 5 minutes the links were edited back in by an admin. For this reason, we will continue to make the Hidden Wiki unavailable.”

They said they targeted ‘Freedom Hosting’ as the host of the largest collection of child pornography on the internet. Anonymous warned them that if they didn’t take it down, they would be targeted. The company refused to remove the content.

At 11.30 pm CST “We infiltrated the shared hosting server of Freedom Hosting and shutdown services to all clients due to their lack of action to remove child pornography from their server.”

The hosting group then reinstated backups and got the sites running again. Anonymous retargeted the servers and took them all down again.

Anonymous say “The owners and operators at Freedom Hosting are openly supporting child pornography and enabling pedophiles to view innocent children, fueling their issues and putting children at risk of abduction, molestation, rape, and death.

For this, Freedom Hosting has been declared #OpDarknet Enemy Number One.

By taking down Freedom Hosting, we are eliminating 40+ child pornography websites, among these is Lolita City, one of the largest child pornography websites to date containing more than 100GB of child pornography.

We will continue to not only crash Freedom Hosting’s server, but any other server we find to contain, promote, or support child pornography.”

Kitguru says: This will be one of their more popular moves in recent months, thats for sure. We don’t think many people will have sympathy for these websites and the people who run them.
