Tom Ryan, a computer expert who deliberately leaked thousands of emails from Occupy Wall Street organisers, has thrown out a challenge to Anonymous
“Conservatives really have a hard-on for ‘infiltrating’Occupy Wall Street in an effort to discredit it,” says Gawker, going on:
He runs a “tiny New York-based outfit called Provide Security”, which boasts,
“Provide Security associates are handpicked from the ranks of highly trained and experienced former agents of the US Secret Service, members of U.S. Special Forces, Global Intelligence Agencies and other premier law enforcement organizations. Our experts are Board Certified in multiple aspects of Security from leading Security Associations, including ASIS International, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners and ISC2. Based upon their extensive training and experience in IT Security, Physical Security, Executive Protection and Investigations our professionals are uniquely skilled and well versed in the latest concepts of Convergence in the Security Field. Our approach has been used for tackling many security issues and providing solutions.
Says Gawker, “Ryan and his computer buddies have been waging a months-long campaign to infiltrate and ‘map the ties’ of the Anonymous.
It continues, “Yesterday Ryan leaked what he said were more than 3,900 emails sent to an Occupy Wall Street mailing list called “Now they’re being used by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart to smear the movement”, Says the story, going on.” The emails show that Occupy Wall Street is a’conspiracy to ‘destabalize’ Global Markets’ Breitbart says!
“In a phone interview, Ryan sounded similar notes of conspiracy. He claimed that members of the hacktivist collective Anonymous are secretly calling the shots in the Occupy Wall Street movement, provoking police violence and waging a concentrated effort to spread misinformation. He said that the supposedly peaceful organizers were secretly violent. And, because no right-wing smear is complete without a terrorism connection,
“Ryan adds in a blog post that he had seen Occupy Wall Street posts on the Al Qaeda recruitment forum Shamuk and Al-Jahad.
What’s more, Ryan says he’s identified the members of Anonymous behind Occupy Wall Street.
“I know which of them are Anonymous members, who aren’t and what they do and their alter-egos,” he said. Ryan said he identified members by quietly observing “patterns” in social media use among Anonymous members as they helped organize protests against San Francisco’s BART earlier this year, and moved on to Occupy Wall Street.
“While it’s true that members of Anonymous have been involved in the protests—they can often be seen wearing the Guy Fawkes masks that are a trademark of the hacktivist collective – Ryan couldn’t prove how the group was exercising control over the generally disorganized Occupy Wall Street protests.
“This all may sound a bit familiar. Aaron Barr, the former CEO of computer security company HBGary Federal, also claimed to have unmasked Anonymous last year. He was completely wrong, and Anonymous paid him back by hacking into his websites and leaking his email inbox all over the internet—the embarrassing revelations therein cost Barr his job.
“While Barr was owned by Anonymous, Ryan says he’s ready for any Anonymous counterattack.
‘I did things a lot different [than Barr],’ He is quoted as stating confidently. “I know what their tactics are going to be — they’re going to go after my email. I never leave things on my email server.’
“Ryan also said that if Anonymous ‘pushed the envelope’by attacking him, he’d release their identities.
‘I’m going to keep my mouth shut because you never release it unless you have to. You always want to have the trump card.’
