Anonymous Indonesia claims attacks by Anonymous Australia
Warring factions in division by zero error
Entities using the name and iconography of Anonymous (EUTNAIOA) and claiming to be the Indonesian branch of the movement have accused entities using the name and iconography of Anonymous and claiming to be the Australian branch of the movement of attacks on Indonesia's national airline Garuda and other hostile actions.
We are using the rather silly language above because when we last week reported on a threat from Entities … let's just shorten that to EUTNAIOA from now on … reported on a threat from EUTNAIOA Australia to EUTNAIOA Indonesia, anons from around the world ridiculed the story and pointed out that one of the movement's mottos is “United as one, divided by zero.”
Anon vs. Anon is therefore impossible, they suggested, and our story was bunk.
How then to explain the Tweets below from the @anon_indonesia account?
jangan lupakan ada pihak ke 3 yg membantu kita. pihak ke 3 yg memanfaatkan situasi konflik indonesia-australia yaitu anonymous international— Anonymous Indonesia (@anon_indonesia) November 11, 2013
(Translation: It is wishful to forget that there are three parties to assist us. 3rd party who exploit Indonesia-conflict situations is anonymous international Australia)
ada berita Anon Australia mengklaim hack situs garuda indonesia tp hnya leak DB tanya knp? krn g nemu admin page utk upload file defacean :P— Anonymous Indonesia (@anon_indonesia) November 15, 2013
(Translation: Anon Australia claims to have hacked Garuda Indonesia website, but only to leak the database. Why? Because they could not find the administration page to upload the deface file)
One explanation comes from EUTNAIOA Australia, which has denied the allegations in the tweets above and says the Indonesian press, especially merdeka.com/, is telling porkies about the true situation.
“We do not want to war,” EUTNAIOA Australia say in a new video. “We only wish to join together and expose our governments, not harm each other. There has been a lot of [sic] propoganda and misleading lies that has been said by the Indonesian community.”
It's hard to say if either nation's EUTNAIOA truly understands what's going on here. Perhaps it's all best understood as a division by zero error? ®
