Members of the infamous hacktivist collective TeaMp0isoN wanted to get back at UK’s foreign intelligence organization, MI6, for accusing innocent people of terrorism, so they dropped a 24 hour phone bomb on them. After the phone bombing stopped, TriCk, the leader of the group, called the MI6 offices in London and started making fun of them.
By using a cleverly developed script, the hackers were able to make calls to the agency’s offices for 24 hours non-stop, basically launching a phone-based denial-of-service (DOS) attack.
“The script is based on the Asterisk software and uses a SIP protocol to phone,” TriCk told us. “Everytime they picked up the phone the server would play a robot voice which said ‘teamp0ison’.”
To make sure they can’t be caught, the hacktivists compromised a server from Malaysia and set it up to execute the phone bomb script.
Around 4 hours after the bombing stopped, they called the offices. The audio recording of the call shows that the MI6 representatives that answered the phone became upset, threatening that every bit of information they have will go to the authorities.
So, we’ve asked TriCk to reveal TeaMp0isoN’s reasons for attacking the agency and this is what he had to say:
The Counter Terrorist Command has always targeted by TeaMp0isoN purely because they help lock up innocent people who they themselves label as terrorists with no proof at all, - but the reason behind the recent phone denial of service (phone bomb) targeted at their office in London was because of the recent events where the counter terrorist command and the UK court system has extradited Babar Ahmad, Adel Abdel Bary & a few others to be trialled in the US, and we all know how the US treats innocent Muslims they label as terrorists, e.g. - Aafia Siddiqui
The people who have been extradited have done nothing wrong to be extradited to the US, if anything they should have been trialled in the UK, the US has no reason to trial them over there, they are innocent!
Babar Ahmad is a British Citizen who has been detained in the UK for 7 years without trial he received 149,395+ petitions to be put on trial in the UK and not the US, but they ignored the petition and have extradited him, what’s happened to democracy?
Adel Abdel Bary has been in prison for 12 years in the UK, apparently he received a phone call from Osama years ago therefore they imprisoned him claiming they had a tape of the call but there was never a witness to prove it or show the tape, if I (TriCk) was to call George Bush would they lock George Bush up for receiving a phone call from a cyber-terrorist / hacker?
I understand that some people may disagree with me and claim these guys are terrorists, your opinion is your opinion, but all the allegations against these guys have taken place in the UK, therefore they should be trialled in the UK and not the US.
The US is calling it a “global war on terror” which in my opinion is a cover up for “global war on Islam” – the real terrorists are the guys sitting in 10 Downing Street and the Whitehouse.
