Anonymous OS: Worth the risk?

Recommended Posts

Anonymous has now released an OS. It's based on Ubuntu flavor of Linux for "Educational Purposes". Would anyone here try it?

 

Some people are freaking out that it will be packed with trojans, maybe. Some are also saying that someone else released it claiming to be Anonymous for publicity. Wouldn't want to be that person :) They will find you.

 

It 21,000 Downloads @ 5am this morning and was just released today!

I thought this was fake at first. I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Given their antics over recent months, who knows what they've hidden away somewhere in the OS.

I had a really bad experience with TOR. I got BSOD in about 7 minutes with normal browsing. SO i think Anonymous browsing is good, but there are also good OS for them. I forgot their names. They arent actually that publicized.

TOR?

Yeah its a virtual network of proxy and real addresses all over the internet. Unfortunately it's also hacked and spammed a lot. Also it is the gateway to deepweb. Be careful. :(

 

The best is to use good firewalls and antivirus or the best that I use is run a Virtual XP and surf away. :)

 

Here is a link to TOR browser. https://www.torproject.org

 

Have fun. :)

No way. I doubt seriously that there is anything you can get from this OS that you couldn't get from a fresh Ubuntu install and a little know how. Most likely the Feds released this anyway...

I bet it's safe to use; I don't see anonymous as being the type to bug a homebrew OS. The thing about them, is they attack big targets for their own brand of "justice," and that likely doesn't include your average wannabe hackers!

My only concern would be that they have built some hidden code which allows them to hijack our computers and make them participate in large scale DDOS attacks. Still I would give it a try on a spare machine and see how it works. I imagine that it would be a lot less buggy than Windows :)

Well these guys just copied Linux OS , its 99% same as Linux ...

Linux is 99% same as Linux, because they're all based on the same source code.

An operating system created by the biggest group of hackers? I think I'll pass

 

I'm pretty sure it was actually created by whatever department of the FBI who investigates cyber-crime. It just doesn't make sense for them (Anonymous) to create an OS like this when it's a given that most of their members are already experienced computer users.
