An interview with some Bay Area hacktivists on political hacking

Crash & Burn

This weeks show is an interview with Flatline from the Hackbloc collective and Bill Silverfox about internet security, hacking, hacktivism, Anonymous and other topics. In light of recent attacks by Anti-Sec against the Arizona DPS, Anonymous on multiple targets and alleged members' subsequent arrests, the BART protests, Wikileaks, I thought it'd be good to shed some light on a misunderstood topic. We also discuss the role of hackers in the Arab Spring movement as well as international solidarity to disrupt corrupt government censorship and activity, in the hopes of facilitating a more free flow of information around the world (Malaysia, Australia, the U.S., Morocco, Libya, Egypt, China, Iran...etc). Lots of good introductory information on internet security and history of hacking during this hour-long show. Enjoy.
