Meeting Anonymous Without The Masks (Cyberwar Full Episode)

  • Published on Apr 22, 2019
  • Anonymous: it's a brand, a meme, a movement. They hacked corporations, challenged governments and wanted to change the world. But after a series of arrests and an informant on the inside threatened to end the hacking group forever, what did Anonymous become? Back in 2016, we sent VICE reporter Ben Makuch to investigate.

    If your good at something in the 21st century and thats for the good of the people then its a great thing....unless YOUR a corporate company who steals and allow corruption and operate loopholes for ILLEGAL operation's to get power & money..!! THESE PEOPLE should be employed to keep countrys and the WORLD understand they are being watched and can be black-Hat lableded for unlawfullness behaviour and traiding.....we should have a (real hacking department and employment opportunities for THESE talented with honest & good minded people looking for a brightest of futurer's ....

    Man i hope they never catch me, iv'e got too much to lose. pretty dumb of me saying it but i'm tired of hiding the many truths in the world. it would be such a huge task to fix the world, it would mean bringing down most governments and agencies. we would need the Army on our side. The worlds future is screwed and most the population will die before Harmony,

    Is it because I'm not a 3 year old that I can't hack? I used to be a 3 year old but then i became a 4 year still without any hacking. I have used a hacksaw but suspect that isn't quite the same.

  • The Very Ground
    The Very Ground 3 months ago

    I've looked everywhere and there isn't any software for hacking. Why can some computers hack? Was I ripped off? I spent 1500 quid building my amd gaming/music computer and I still can't hack. Why?

    @6:50 Um. I don't mean to seem too forward and I hope you don't think I'm being disrespectful but may I ask permission to protest in an authorized manner? If you say I can't I'll understand, protesting has to be regulated, right? I mean I don't want to do things that are wrong and stuff. Is that okay? I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

    How hard can it really be to identify that guy? You have his location and half of what he looks like. I'd stand a fair chance at doing it.

      You really wouldn't, I can guarantee they had him drive multiple cities over just for that one interview, at the same time millions of people within just the small population of the UK will have almost identical body and facial features to him. There's a reason he agreed to talk. Have you ever looked into the statistics for finger prints, many people think they're unique and can be used to instantly trace a culprit, when in reality the police would get thousands if not millions of matching results, to actually trace back a single person when you have thousands of leaders is both, expensive and time consuming. Getting back to the topic it is also highly unlikely that they can gain solid proof that he was ever involved, all they have is his word at this point in time.
