The new service is meant as a form of protest against the US government
The Anonymous hacktivist community has released a new video to reveal the initiation of TYLER, an operation part of Project Mayhem 2012.“With censorship bills being passed and bills that attempt to rid us of our freedoms that this country was founded upon the time has now come to act. We have devised a plan to bring forth the final act of the evolution,” the digitized voice says.
TYLER is described by the hacktivists as a form of protest against the United States government and its Cybersecurity Act of 2012.
“We now call upon the top hacktivists, coders, crypto anarchists, cypher punks, Non-violent Civil Rights activists, Internet Censorship and Freedom of Speech activists everywhere to collaborate to jointly BRAINSTORM IDEAS to develop TYLER,” they explained.
“TYLER is a massively distributed and decentralized Wikipedia-style P2P cipherspace structure impregnable to censorship. TYLER will improve where Wikileaks could not. In other words TYLER will be a Wikileaks on steroids.”
The activists reveal that on the symbolic date of November 5, TYLER will be out of beta testing and in the timeframe between December 12 and December 21, 2012, it will be put to use.
During this time, everyone who supports the movement is advised to gather as much information as they can on illegality, fraud and corruption and upload it to the new service.
At the end of the video statement, Anonymous warns that TYLER is only a small part of Project Mayhem.
The name of this particular phase of Project Mayhem 2012, Tyler, is most likely inspired by Tyler Durden, the character played by Brad Pitt in the movie Fight Club from 1999. It appears that Durden’s attitude is one that’s considered to be appropriate for this operations and its success.
