#Antisec ~ Ghost HISTORY: The Anti Security Movement or popularly written as Anti-sec is a popular movemen t opposed to the

computer security industry. It attempts to censor the publicati on of information relating to but not limited to: software vulnerabilities, expl oits, exploitation techniques, hacking tools, attacking public outlets and distr ibution points of that information. Movement followers have cited websites such as SecurityFocus, Securiteam, Packet StormSecurity, and milw0rm to be targets of their cause, as well as mailing list s like “full-disclosure”, “vuln-dev”, “vendor-sec” and bugtraq, as well as public forums and IRC channels. The start of most public attacks in the name of the anti-security movement start ed in around 1999 and 2000. The “anti-security movement” as it is understood today w as coined by the following document which was initially an index on the anti.sec website. The purpose of this movement is to encourage a new policy of anti-disclosure amo ng the computer and network security communities. The goal is not to ultimately discourage the publication of all security-related news and developments, but ra ther, to stop the disclosure of all unknown or non-public exploits and vulnerabi lities. In essence, this would put a stop to the publication of all private mate rials that could allow script kiddies from compromising systems via unknown meth ods. The open-source movement has been an invaluable tool in the computer world, and we are all indebted to it. Open-source is a wonderful concept which should and w ill exist forever, as educational, scientific, and end-user software should be f ree and available to everybody. Exploits, on the other hand, do not fall into this broad category. Just like mun itions, which span from cryptographic algorithms to hand guns to missiles, and m ay not be spread without the control of export restrictions, exploits should not be released to a mass public of millions of Internet users. A digital holocaust occurs each time an exploit appears on Bugtraq, and kids across the world downl oad it and target unprepared system administrators. Quite frankly, the integrity of systems world wide will be ensured to a much greater extent when exploits ar e kept private, and not published. A common misconception is that if groups or individuals keep exploits and securi ty secrets to themselves, they will become the dominators of the “illegal scene”, as countless insecure systems will be solely at their mercy. This is far from the truth. Forums for information trade, such as Bugtraq, Packetstorm, a, and vuln-dev have done much more to harm the underground and net than they ha ve done to help them. What casual browsers of these sites and mailing lists fail to realize is that so me of the more prominent groups do not publish their findings immediately, but o nly as a last resort in the case that their code is leaked or has become obsolet e. This is why production dates in header files often precede release dates by a matter of months or even years. ANTI-SEC HACKTIVIST GROUPS: el8: ~el8 was one of the first anti-security hacktivist groups. The group waged war o n the security industry with their popular assault known as “pr0j3kt m4yh3m”. pr0j3k t m4yh3m was announced in the third issue of ~el8. The idea of the project was t o eliminate all public outlets of security news and exploits. Some of ~el8′s more notable targets included Theo de Raadt, K2, Mixter, Ryan Russel (Blue Boar), Chr is McNab (so1o), jobe, rloxley, pm, aempirei, broncbuster, lcamtuf, and OpenBSD’s CVS repository. The group published four electronic zines which can be found here :- http://web.

Manifesto of group anti-sec : We’re a movement dedicated to the eradication of full-disclosure. Meanwhile. It’s about money. Own everyone. an exploit publication website or you distribute any exploits… “you are a target and you will be rm’d. and money will certainly continue to be a very important in the eyes of many.

Full-disclosure is the disclosure of exploits publicly – anywhere. Never sell out. full-disclosure will be abandoned and the security industry will be forced to reform. Leave with no trace. companies. While the world is difficult to change. Destroy everything. This time everyone and everything is getting owned. We wanted to give everyone an image of what we’re all about. not even exploits with silly edits to make them slightly unusable. Only a matter of time. . Take back the scene.” This isn’t like before.
