Hello, I do want to start off by saying this is completely out of my area as I've never really worked with any ASP.net sites and hosting off IIS is also new to me. The site we currently have deployed is c#.net and was written back in 2005-2007, I have never used c# to create any ASP.net sites however I was going to start learning it but it seems that now it is more apparent to use MVC instead of webforms. The question I have regarding this area is that our site uses windows authentication and Active Directory to authenticate …

The hacker collective known as Anonymous first declared war on Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS) supporters back in the Summer of 2014 with [Operation NO2ISIS](http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasperhamill/2014/06/27/anonymous-hacktivists-prepare-for-strike-against-isis-supporters/) which promised to target the online infrastructure of those countries sponsoring Islamic State militants. This declaration followed the hacking of an Anonymous Twitter account, @TheAnonMessage, which was then used to post photos of a terrorist assault near Baghdad. At the time, an Anonymous spokesperson stated that "these savages who have no religion or morality are bent on burning everything in their path, killing and pillaging as they go. They must be stopped." Because Islamic …

According to the [Daily Mirror](http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/technology-science/technology/charlie-hebdo-isis-flag-death-4946579), a number of official websites connected to French municipalities were hacked at the end of last week to coincide with the Charlie Hebdo massacre and the hostage taking at the Jewish supermarket. The newspaper reported that the home screens of websites belonging to the towns of Jouy-le-Moutier, Piscop, Goussainville, Val D'Oise and Ezanville (all surrounding Paris) were defaced with a Jihadist ISIS black flag and a message which translates as "The Islamic State Stay Inchallah, Free Palestine, Death to France, Death to Charlie." The hacker concerned declares himself to be an Algerian using the name …

Yesterday, Tor [issued a security advisory](https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-security-advisory-relay-early-traffic-confirmation-attack) which revealed that a group of relays had been discovered on July 4th which looked like they "were trying to deanonymize users." The advisory states that the attack "involved modifying Tor protocol headers to do traffic confirmation attacks" with the relays having joined the network at the start of the year. This means they were potentially deanonymizing users between January 30th and July 4th when they were finally removed. A Tor spokesperson says that they know the attack "looked for users who fetched hidden service descriptors, but the attackers likely were not able to …

The Onion Router, better known as the Tor Network, is often thought of as being the dark-side of the web. Not least as the anonymity provided by Tor meant that sites hosted on so-called hidden service servers were free to trade in just about anything from drugs and guns through to child pornography. In amongst the depravity and illegal excess, of course, were political activists and dissidents looking for an online safe haven in order to escape persecution, prosecution and potentially death. Revelations that the FBI would appear to have been behind the takedown of Freedom Hosting, apparently responsible for …

Not exactly the most surprising news ever, that Anonymous is [planning an all out DDoS war on World Cup corporate sponsors](http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/world-cup-2014-hacktivist-group-anonymous-plan-cyberattack-on-world-cup-sponsors-9467786.html) during the football tournament. Personally, I wish them luck. Cannot stand football, in fact hate it with a passion and the world cup period is a nightmare every four years with no escape wherever you go and whatever you do. Media coverage is ridiculous in the UK, anyone would think that football is some kind of religion. I also have no love for the large corporates which sponsor such events, being an anarchist at heart. Your mileage may well …

On a site I am helping develop, there seems to be a problem with code executing while not logged into Sharepoint 2010. When logged in as administrator, everything works fine on the site. Code executes as it should. However, when we visit the site without logging into SharePoint or as an account that has no privilages (same as not logging in), none of the server side code executes for certain pages. It's really weird how that happens. Client side code still executes without a problem, but when a postback call or an OnClick is made, the server side code does …

Anonymous hacktivists took aim at the websites of the UK Justice Department, the Department of Work and Pensions, the Home Office and even the Prime Minister's own Number 10 site. All of them were successfully targeted overnight and went down for a period of time. The attacks were part of the Anonymous response to the UK government's handling of the Julian Assange extradition situation. WikiLeaks founder Assange has been granted political asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and police have gathered to arrest him should he leave the building. The UK government has threatened to enter the embassy, under …

Over the last few hours of the day GoDaddy's (and GoDaddy managed) websites have been [on the fritz](http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2012/09/10/godaddy-has-glitches-anonymous-claims-responsibility/) as webmasters and visitors alike are unable to access millions of websites held within GoDaddy's datacenters in an apparent Denial of Service [(DDOS)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack) attack. GoDaddy is currently scrambling to restore service to their customers at this very moment. The individual claiming responsibility for the attack claims to be a member of the internet group [Anonymous](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_(group)), though he acted alone and not with the collective organization. Anonymous is infamous for a variety of attacks on various websites & services, including the recent leaking …

The FBI took claims by new hacking group The WikiBoat that it was going to bring down the likes of Apple and Tesco last Friday at 4pm so seriously that it sent email warnings to those targeted. It's now Sunday morning, and the threatened DDoS attacks do not appear to have happened. So has The WikiBoat been sunk and is #OpNewSon a failure? ![dweb-wikiboat](/attachments/small/0/dweb-wikiboat.jpg) The answers would appear to be that it was never actually launched, but that doesn't mean that #OpNewSon is a failure or that this is the last we will hear from The WikiBoat in my opinion. …

At least 55,000 Twitter accounts would appear to have been compromised in a breach perpetrated by members of the Anonymous hacking collective. Details of the accounts, including usernames and passwords, appeared across a total of no less than five pages at Pastebin yesterday. ![dweb-anontwit](/attachments/small/0/dweb-anontwit.jpg "align-right") However, appearances can often be deceptive, and that may well apply here when you take a more detailed look at the accounts in question. The lists of usernames are not all currently active accounts for a start, indeed the majority seem to be accounts that have previously been suspended by Twitter for spamming infractions at …

The Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) website remains offline after being hit by a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack for the second time in the space of a year. Last June it was the hacktivist group LulzSec which claimed responsibility; this time nobody has yet come forward to admit they did it and explain why. However, it seems likely that hacking collective Anonymous could be behind the strike in protest over the [decision of the UK's High Court](http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17894176) to order all Internet Service Providers to block access to The Pirate Bay. ![dweb-scoa](/attachments/small/0/dweb-scoa.jpg "align-left") The SOCA website has been unavailable …

Following the arrest of 25 suspected members of the Anonymous hacking collective in Europe and South America, the INTERPOL website went offline. Coincidence? I don't think so. After all, Anonymous has already proven it isn't scared, or indeed incapable. of taking down law enforcement sites. Earlier in the month it managed to [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPZc-CqXG3U"]take the CIA website offline[/URL] and even managed to [URL="http://www.itpro.co.uk/638788/do-british-police-get-cyber-security"]listen in to a private conference call between FBI agents and Scotland Yard detectives[/URL] who were discussing how to deal with Anonymous hacking attacks amongst other things. The fact that the INTERPOL site went down within hours of INTERPOL …

Hello, I'm new to this forum. Right now I'm developing a software based on Genetic Algorithms. I really have almost none experience, and I have a question. First of, this software is a prototype, a template. So the user can choose between a lot of choices (types of crossing and mutations). And I have many radio buttons for that. The question, like in the thread title is, can I give the name of a suroutine to a variable, so that sub executes instead of making a comparisson about which radio button is selecten, THEN execute the sub of that option. …

In an [URL="http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2010/jan/24/computer-security-crime-anonymous-datasets"]interview[/URL] with The Observer newspaper, Dr Ian Brown from the Oxford Internet Institute who is writing a report on anonymous datasets for the European Commission warns that "criminals could identify individuals through mobile phone data and use the information to track people's movements and find out when they are away from home". His concerns have been peaked, it would seem, by the problem of statistical de-anonymisation. Statistical what? Well, there have been great advances (although that's not perhaps the right word) in the last couple of years when it comes to the re-identification of individuals whose anonymity is …
