  2. Anonymous Hacks North Korea’s Official Twitter and Flickr, Posts Bizarre Images

    As North Korea continues to bolster its threats against the United States, it seems they've got some social media issues to deal with. The official Twitter and Flickr accounts of the North Korean government have been hacked, and hacktivist group Anonymous is taking credit. The Twitter account seems to mainly be posting about other sites that are being hacked, but the Flickr page has some pretty bizarre pictures of a half-pig half-Kim Jong Un creature.

  5. Anonymous Says They’re Responsible for Taking Down U.S. Sentencing Commission Site

    Continuing a string of threats and attacks following the death of Aaron Swartz, Anonymous claims to be responsible for taking down the United States Sentencing Commission website yesterday.

  6. Brit Marling’s New Film Features Ellen Page As A Member Of An Anonymous-Like Group [TRAILER]

    Submitted For Your Approval

    We've reviewed two of Brit Marling's films on The Mary Sue. Another Earth left me with deep thoughts, while The Sound of My Voice left me wanting more. Marling's new outing has her rejoining her Voice director Zal Batmanglij for The East. She plays an "operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele" while an anarchist group works to reveal the corporations shady practices. Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page also star as members of the seemingly fictional take on Anonymous. (via /Film) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  7. Petition to Fire Aaron Swartz’s Prosecutor Hits Required Signatures for White House Response

    Aaron Swartz committed suicide on January 11th, and while no one but Swartz will ever truly know why, many have speculated that the legal troubles he was facing were a factor. He was being aggressively prosecuted for unlawfully obtaining information and recklessly damaging a protected computer after he made repeated efforts to steal files from JSTOR. The District Attorney leading the case against him was D.A. Carmen Ortiz, and the We the People petition to have her fired has already hit the required number of signatures needed to receive a White House response.

  8. Anonymous Hacks MIT Site in Wake of Aaron Swartz’s Suicide [UPDATED]

    The hacker group Anonymous defaced pages of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) site just hours after the school announced it would launch a full investigation into their role in Aaron Swartz's death. Swartz committed suicide on Friday while facing millions of dollars in fines and up to 50 years in prison for stealing documents from MIT and academic database JSTOR. In response, Anonymous has publicly called for the reform of computer crime laws and prosecution, and they've been busy the last few days petitioning the White House to classify DDoS attacks as a form of protest while also engaging in this hack of MIT.

  9. Anonymous Posts Petition for White House to Declare DDoS Attacks Protests, Not Crimes

    Yesterday we covered the White House's response to the petition asking them to build a working Death Star. Sometimes though, people try to use the government's We the People petition program to try to accomplish things that might be possible. Anonymous has posted a petition to the site asking that the US Government officially declare Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks to be a form of protest, and not a crime. This stands about as much of a chance as the government building a Death Star, and the response probably won't be nearly as funny.

  10. Google+ Might Finally Embrace the Internet, Allow Anonymous Profiles

    One of the big parts of Google+ is the fact that it requires you to use your "common name" when signing up. Google doesn't want any of the typical social media naming schemes, after all, and they almost definitely want to associate all the data they can with a single person. To this end, the Google+ guidelines include a strict naming policy on what is and is not kosher when signing up for their service. According to a patent that's just been issued to the company, however, they might be changing their minds a bit.
