#OpPayPal

If you have a paypal account with money on it, linked to your bank, or any personal information at all, I would suggest you change that ASAP. #AntiSec is not pleased with #PayPal and is going to prove that come September. Just a heads up.


"As I sit here the AntiSec Movement has begun a true activist initiative against a conglomerate that they believe to be the enemy. The activity is in response to the 14 arrests that were made in connection with the paypal hack.

A week or so ago PayPal security chief Michael Barrett had put out a call to arms to go after the Antisec movement in retaliation to the attack on their organization. He had stated that “companies must do what they can to try to identify these individuals” in an article put out by SC Magazine. I do find it rather odd, that the victim in this case would like to simply transfer blame instead of admitting that they had failed to protect their customers.

Following the arrests @anonymousabu and others have began an initiative which could legally cripple paypal. They have called out to supporters to immediately initiate account liquidations to an amount of at least 10K accounts. While this may or may not hurt Paypals bottom line, this type of activism is the type that many will stand behind. There are no legal implications as such supporters will rally…."

    The death panel will have to protect it's assets so we may have to go on the offensive on this one.

    Getting sick of customers getting caught in the crossfire between hackers and companies. Crap like this is why I stopped supporting groups like anonymous.

    Is that so? How many groups do you know of "like anonymous"? AntiSec is out there risking jail time so that people like you and me can benefit.

    How exactly do you and I benefit?

    Oh, and I meant anonymous, I don't know why I put "groups like" lol.

    I'm very interested to see how much money PayPal loses over the next couple days.

    So would this count as something we should actually be worried about? After reading through as usual we support Anon's position on this (Although we also see Paypal's position in trying to apprehend those responsible for attacking them, which would prevent further attack) and feel the idea of this "Mercedes" person getting 15 years prison sentence is more then excessive, however we use Paypal quite a lot and cancelling our account would be a major pain. To our knowledge in the last operation against paypal no funds were actually stolen, but our knowledge on the subject is very limited.

    (Edit:) We also have not seen anything on, or relating to, another attack on Paypal on AnonNews.org, yet...

    I would suggest using www.moneybookers.com or www.netteller.com for things you use Paypal for. If you have questions, feel free to join the IRC: http://irc.lc/Anonops/OpPayPal/PayPalSux@@@

    To my knowledge, the op is in it's infancy currently. At the moment there are just a lot of people withdrawing money and cancelling accounts, which hurts PayPals profits. DDOS attacks have been discussed, but that probably won't happen for a while.

    They are trying to refrain from any and all DoS/DDoS attacks. This OP is focused on a peaceful protest. What happens in September though, that will cripple them even further.
