Operation Malaysia – don’t say they never told you
Anonymous dubbed the Malaysian Government as one of the strictest on censorship, when in June last year ministers decided to push forward the blocking of sites such as Pirate Bay for violating Section 41 of the Copyright Act 1987.
Dr Rais Yatim, Minster of information, justified this action by ‘only when crimes are committed through the channels and through cyber space will the mechanism come into play’.
However this doesn’t justify the blocked on whistle-blowers site, Wikileaks who have prompted plenty accusations of crime but have actually yet to break any international law. Ignoring western medias campaign to create Assange into a cyber terrorist the Group itself broken no written laws releasing the US cables.
Anonymous warned the government by realising their attack and plans online giving the government enough time to think about it, can’t say they never warned you.
This image circulated around for a week for the attacks, calling on supporters to attack malaysia.gov.my on June 15 at 7:30pm GMT.
On the morning of the 16th Malaysian Communications and Multimedia commission confirmed Ninety-one websites were attacked.
In a video statement released by Anonymous on the 14th, the group warned the Malaysian government “this is a sign, a warning, and an opportunity to listen to ideas above your own.”
“Now we will wash your corruption away so be prepared. Take this as a favour,” the group concluded.
Anonymous protected its members, including those from within Malaysia by encouraging them to use VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) which will encrypt their networked connection and transfer their date from remotest locations that cannot be accessed without authentication.
Malaysia worked to thwart a planned assault on the government’s official website by international hackers however it failed.
