Anonymous continued its ongoing attack on agricultural biotech giant Monsanto today by publishing an outdated database of the company’s material. This is the newest in a barrage of strikes from hackers aligned with Anonymous who operate under the “AntiSec” banner.
In a statement posted with the database on a Pastebin site, the hacktivist group wrote it was aware that exposing the database would not do much harm to Monsanto but warned it would continue to target the company for what it sees as wrong.
“Your continued attack on the worlds food supply, as well as the health of those who eat it, has earned you our full attention,” wrote AntiSec. “Your crimes against humanity are too many to name on one page.”
Anonymous’ battle with Monsanto began last July when the hackers disrupted the company’s Web site and then released data on about 2,500 individuals involved in the agriculture industry. According to Monsanto, 10 percent of this information was related to current and former Monsanto employees.
Monsanto was one of seven companies that supplied the U.S. military with Agent Orange during the Vietnam War and for a while made bovine growth hormones. Now it focuses on making genetically engineered seeds and pesticides.
AntiSec says the reason for the attacks is to protest the company’s lawsuits against organic dairy farmers for stating on labels that their products don’t contain growth hormones.
“You have put over 9000 small-time farmers out of business by using your enormous legal team to bury them with your malicious patent lawsuits,” AntiSec wrote in its statement today. “You have continually introduced harmful, even deadly products into our food supply without warning, without care, all for your own profit.”
Besides going after Monsanto, AntiSec has also recently claimed responsibility for attacks on U.S. law enforcement agencies, Vanguard Defense Industries, and private prison companies. In these assaults, the hackers deface the companies’ Web sites as well as release documents, e-mails, and other files.

My dear brothers and sisters. It is high time to keep your eyes open. It is high time to demand for the justice.
Internet should be a platform where ideas are told unhampered. Internet should be a platform which is far from authority’s interference.
Internet is everyone’s right.
It is time to fight for free internet while dominations are getting consistent. Digiturk, who is responsible for blocking Blogger.com, inci.sozlukspot.com and over 10000 websites, has become a internet terrorist. The victims were not warned and did not even have the right of defense.
Digiturk has removed Anonymous’s message video on youtube.com because of the copy rights.

Don’t DDOS countries with repressive regimes. Odds are good it will end up backfiring.
The United States is taking “serious and noticeable” measures to prevent another breach of classified files like the massive WikiLeaks document dump, the nation’s spy chief said Thursday.
James Clapper, director of national intelligence, said changes were being implemented over the next five years that would create a new security “architecture,” making it infinitely harder to disclose America’s secrets.
The “terrible event,” which saw thousands of US diplomatic and military cables exposed for public scrutiny, “caused us to make some changes,” Clapper told a Washington think-tank.
“We have to do more to protect datas and ensure that the information we are giving is actually going to an authorized recipient.”
Good luck, because you’ll need it.
