'Operation Malaysia' by Anonymous - Real Threats by Real Hackers
The news on 'Operation Malaysia' appeared on the front page of local Malaysian newspapers today. It caught the attention of many and was a hot topic over the internet.
Anonymous has been circulating their video titled 'Operation Malaysia' and its content reads;
"Greetings, Malaysia, We have seen the censorship taken by the Malaysian government, blocking sites like The Pirate Bay, and WikiLeaks. Malaysia is one of the world's strictest governments, even blocking out movies, and television shows. These acts of censorship are inexcusable. You are taking away a basic human right. The internet is here for freedom, without fear of government interference. Do not think that no one else notices. Your structured government has done the talking, and we hear loud and clear. Let this be an announcement to all your people. This is a sign, a warning, and an opportunity to listen to ideas above your own. In a way you are being stubborn. But how will this help anyone or your country. We fear that if you make further decisions to take away human freedom. We are obligated to act fast and have no mercy. For rules were meant to be broken. And corruption was meant to be washed away and forgiven. Now we will wash your corruption away so be prepared. Take this as a favour."
The cyberworld was never a safe place, and will definitely not be a 100% secure platform for everyone to use safely without any worries. Hackers are becoming diligent at trying to find ways to break into computer systems and this has been going on for years and the number of incidents are growing as the years goes by. Today, the damage done by cybercriminals has increased and they are not afraid anymore, forming into groups and announcing on their attacks.
The world uses the internet where almost every transaction you can think of is taken place. What can we expect in the future for our cyberworld? What do all of you think about 'Operation Malaysia'? Drop us your feedbacks and let us know!
