In 2013, Anonymous launched attacks on various Singapore websites including Ang Mo Kio Town Council, National Museum of Singapore, (from which 3,600 Emails, IP addresses and names were leaked), PAP Community Foundation, and Straits Times.
After a multitude of websites had been taken down, and the government of Singapore was crumbling, Anonymous released this video, exposing the hacker who launched the attacks…which disqualifies this as a true Anonymous Operation and classifies it as fame-whore propaganda. -.- Anonymous have no identity. Anonymous is an idea, not an individual, which is why you can not join or become a member.
Greetings Government of Singapore,
We are Anonymous and we believe that we have your undivided attention.
We also believe that you have had the pleasure of meeting our comrade “The Messiah”, who demonstrated what a single Anon could do to your so call technologically advanced island. Now allow us to explain the objective of our recent invasions.
The secondary objective was to welcome you to the new rule where ignoring the issues of your citizens will not go ignored by Anonymous. We advise you to stop feigning ignorance and serve the people. Any form of arrogant and ignorant statement from a person of position towards the people will not go ignored by Anonymous.
Have you forgotten who you work for?
Traditionally the workers respect the boss. Let us stick to tradition.
But the primary objective of our invasion was to protest the implementation of the internet licensing framework by giving you a sneak peak of the state of your cyberspace if the ridiculous, communistic, oppressive and offensive framework gets implemented.
Did i mention the previous hacks was executed by a single Anonymous?
Now close your eyes and imagine a legion of Anonymous unleashed upon your tiny little island and infrastructures. It will be like dipping yourselves into a pool of piranhas. We have faced much larger and more secured corporations such as the F.B.I & the NSA. Do you think the I.D.A will be a problem for us?
After all, security is just an illusion against time and temporary ignorance. So mark our words when we say that we Anonymous stand firm on our belief that no Government has the right to deprive their citizens the freedom of information. No one has the right to tell an individual what he can or cannot read or write. This is a basic fundamental of democracy and we will use everything in our resources to protect it at all cost. We demand you reconsider the regulations of your framework or we will be forced to go to war with you. For every single time you deprive a citizen his right to information, we will cost you financial loss by aggressive cyber intrusion. An intrusion your $130 million cyber security will not be able to stop.
After all how do you stop an idea?
You may be ambitious enough to try and stop us but remember, the people you are after are the people you depend on: we cook your meals, we haul your trash, we teach your children, we pay your high salaries, we feed your families, we guard you while you sleep! It is not wise to piss us off. And finally we call upon our fellow Singaporean brothers and sisters to join our protest by dressing fully in black & red on the 5th of November to paint your streets with the colors that represent the current Singaporeans emotion.
We urge you to black out your FB profile picture for a day along with the status message: I am a Singaporean and i had enough of being oppressed! I want my freedom back!!
Anonymous will be making a virtual protest by your side. Let us demonstrate our frustrations in organized unseen unity that may live a thousand years. This action might not make a political change but it is the first step towards the mental conditioning needed to achieve our goals.
Remember, remember. The fifth of November.
We are anonymous, we are legion.
We do not forgive, we do not forget.
Needless to say, the Singapore government amped up it’s cyber security after this.
