I already talked about the Syrian Revolution sevral times (here, here and also here - french only sorry), but it was just a some posts. Now that my friends at Reflets are talking about it and giving information about the Syrian censorship, I feel like it’s my duty to also go public.
Since Mach 15th, people in Syria have been dying, but a resistance is also growing. The resistance I want to talk about, is of course, the electronic one. What you should know is that the Syrian dictatorship is the first one to have a Cyber Army with objectives, targets, and to be honest, results. Of course, armies fight one another.
The most famous enemies of the Syrian cyber army, are Anonymous and Telecomix. Actually, smaller groups are hidding behind those names. They are more organized, more powerful and more influential : they are the ones who created #OpSyria. They have a very simple goal : destroy the Syrian dictatorship presence online and bring electronic liberty to Syria.
Today, I would like to make public (which is the opposite of the group’s ethic) the fact that I’m part of #OpSyria. I’ve organized and/or executed several actions from the highly covered DoS’s to the heavy actions on the Syrian Internet Ground Services.
My actions made me able to dress a good card of the Syrian internet backbone and to gain good access to a part of it. I currently don’t have any information on any of my electronic/paper devices. I’m not that stupid : everything is in a safe place on systems I don’t have access to.
I am going public today because firstly my role in this war is not same anymore : I will work on helping people to protect themselves and on covering their actions. Secondly, I don’t feel safe and anonymous like I used to. I prefer to make everything public before I can’t do it anymore.
Expect some heavy actions in the next days/week. The war has just begun and is almost finished.
I’m open to any questions/comments. You can use the comments or the contact form.
We are Legion. We do not forget. We do not forgive. Expect Us.
