Hacktivist collectives from all over the world are making preparations for OpUSA, a new campaign against the US government that will be launched on May 7, 2013.
One of the Anonymous-affiliated groups involved in OpUSA, N4m3le55 Cr3w (Nameless Crew), has published a statement for US President Barack Obama and US citizens.
“Anonymous will make sure that this May 7th will be a day to remember. On that day Anonymous will start phase one of operation USA. America you have committed multiple war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and recently you have committed war crimes in your own country,” the hackers stated.
“You have killed hundreds of innocent children and families with drones, guns, and now bombs. America you have hit thousands of people where it hurts them, now it is our time for our Lulz. For this you shall pay,” they added.
“Obama you have seen the over three billion dollars’ worth of damage we have done to Israel in operation Israel. It hasn't even been a few weeks and the Anonymous collective has gotten stronger since then. Therefore we will not tread lightly as you have not treaded lightly.”
The hacktivists reiterate that OpIsrael has been a major success, despite the fact that Israeli officials have downplayed the seriousness of the attacks launched on April 7.
The N4m3le55 Cr3w threatens that OpUSA aims at “wiping [the US government] off the cyber map” with the aid of doxes, DNS attacks, defacements, redirects, data leaks, and distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks.
The hackers have also provided their supporters with the necessary tools to achieve these goals. They’ve listed links to various DDOS tools, hacking applications, and resource forums.
