One sided hacktivism (updated)22/06/2009 Written by Roberto Preatoni
Since Zone-H started its mirroring activity of defacements, it always witnessed any sort of hacktivism. Sure, most of the times defacers are/were/will be just defacing *just for the pleasure of it* but when it comes the time of big protests related to world’s events, we are used to see both regular defacers or improvized cyber protesters taking a stand and spell out their disappointments by posting something using the defacement media.
Because… yes.… defacement is a media, it has been proven in several occasion that by defacing just one well targeted website, defacers were capable to attract the attention of regular medias which were reporting his message to the world.
Today, I was reading the news related to the clashes happening right now after the results of the Iranian political election which has been won by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with a percentage that usually belongs only to countries ruled by a strong dictatorship and that any sort of statistical analysis would label at least as an *anomaly*.
But what happened in the cyber-world? Did we witness any sort of digital protest as we used to see in the past like those related to the Kashmir dispute? Or something like the Estonian bronze statue protest? Or even the Prophet Mohammed cartoon protest?
So this morning I woke up with the wish to check the on-hold mirrors to see if some voices were raising in the cyber world.…
… with zero results.
Surprisingly (or not?) the voice of cyber-protesters is still focused on:
wishes of death to Israel, Usa and Denmark (still, after 3 years!):
Armenian and Azerbaijan rants:
Turkish hackers against Israel:
Turkish hackers against Armenians:
wishes against Israel:
wishes of a free Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine while showing the finger to USA and Israel
whishes of a Kosovo independency:
and absolutely nothing, zero related to the recent Iranian happenings.
Yet another statistical anomaly?
I received a message from an Iranian defacer. He says that he indeed protested during the election days
I didn’t notice it as… I don’t speak Farsi language.
