Anonymous Puzzlingly Releases Its Own Operating System [UPDATED]

When they aren’t out DDOSing webpages, sometimes Anonymous affiliated hackers like to burn off a little steam with Anonymous-themed projects. We’ve seen them dabble in social networking, and Twitter app-ing, but now they’ve gone whole hog and released an Anonymous operating system. Well, an Anonymous-branded Ubuntu distribution at least. Expect a lot of Guy Fawkes.

The OS has its own Tumblr that provides updates on its development and appears to have been downloaded almost 5,000 times at the time of this writing. In a decidedly un-Anonymous fashion, the Tumblr’s about page contains a warning, encouraging users not to hack, probably in order to protect the developers.

Please don’t use any tool to destroy any web page :)
If you attack to any web page,
might end up in jail because is a crime in most countries!
*** The user has total responsibility for any illegal act. ***

As with all things “Anonymous” it’s wise to exercise caution because there’s no telling where this actually came from or what it’s actually for. Remember to heed Admiral Ackbar’s sage advice because this could very easily be a trap or some sort or another. That being said, it might be a completely harmless OS that’d be fun to check out. You can download a copy here if you’re really curious. As for me, I think I’m going to steer clear.

UPDATE: Anonymous is now arguing with itself as to whether or not this is “official.” Some pretty vetted Anonymous Twitter accounts have called it out as being infested with viruses. It’s probably best to avoid.
