ANONYMOUS gets into the United States Bureau of Justice, leaks 1.7GB of data.


(As posted in anonnews.org)

Greetings world,
We are Anonymous.
Today we are releasing 1.7GB of data that used to belong to the United States Bureau of Justice, until now. Within the booty you may find lots of shiny things such as internal emails, and the entire database dump.

We lulled as they took the website down after being owned, clearly showing they were scared of what inevitably happened.

We do not stand for any government or parties, we stand for freedom of people, freedom of speech and freedom of information.

We are releasing data to spread information, to allow the people to be heard and to know the corruption in their government. We are releasing it to end the corruption that exists, and truly make those who are being oppressed free. The price we pay very often is our own freedom. The price governments pay is the exposure of their corruption and the truth being revealed, for the truth will set us free in the end.

So once more we call on you. Hackers, activists, and freedom fighters; join us in our struggle against these corporate

Cyber Monday, History [INFOGRAPHIC]


Thousands of online retailers will discount their stock for Cyber Monday — the online version of Black Friday — now in its sixth year.

Last year, Cyber Monday sales topped $1 billion in the United States, making it the biggest day for online retail to date. Yet many businesses are increasingly discounting their goods on Black Friday as well — and consumers are responding. Online sales this past Friday were up 25% compared to last year, according to an IBM survey of 500 retailers.

For a look at Cyber Monday’s inception and how the movement has grown during the past half decade, check out the infographic below.

U.S. Files Complaint to Block AT&T, T-Mobile Merger.


AT&T’s proposed $39 billion takeover of T-Mobile hit a major snag on Wednesday when the U.S. Justice Department filed to block the merger.

The Justice Department is arguing that the takeover would violate antitrust laws and “would substantially lessen competition for mobile wireless telecommunications services across the United States, resulting in higher prices, poorer quality services, fewer choices and fewer innovative products for the millions of American consumers who rely on mobile wireless services in their everyday lives.” (For the full complaint, see below.) Reps from AT&T and T-Mobile could not be reached for comment.

AT&T announced the proposed takeover in March. AT&T’s stock price was down 5% this morning after the news broke.
