Hackers Attack Masonic CHIP Sites

From The Hacker News:
A group of computer hackers Anonymous goes by the name xPsych0path has accuse Masonichip for unwillingness to accept the forced chipping of children they are working toward mitigating it by disrupting the chipping operation. They have built their own operation, in opposition to this issue. In #OpMasonChip is designed to express publicly their anger. He had the following to say about this operation;

“We are fighting against putting RFID chips inside children by masons they have plan to put chips in all of us and those who don't want it won't be able to buy and sell. So I down all those site's for them” on pastebin.

"But In actual there is no "chip" in Masonichip as it stands for Masonic Child Identification Program and includes Abduction Awareness and "Safe Kids" Education benefits to all children and parents attend events and participate." Masonichip explained on their site.

  1. Never underestimate the zeal of the uninformed. This reminds me of something I heard years ago (it may or may not be true). Apparently, there were some animal rights activists at the Talkeetna Moose Dropping festival here in Alaska because they thought that we physically lifted moose and dropped them. Sadly, this uninformed protest has caused real damage.

  2. Perhaps a new acronym would be a good idea given the confusion.

  3. There is an update to this story. It is located at http://thehackernews.com/2012/10/anonymous-hackers-attack-masonic-child.html#_


PLEASE sign or otherwise identify yourself in your comment posts. I have been FLOODED for months with spam comments, and I've been forced to laboriously screen every post now. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
