Who is Anonymous? Cyberwar

Tuesday 12 July 2016

The hacktivist collective Anonymous has targeted everyone from PayPal to the FBI.

  • CyberWar - Tuesdays 10:30P. Ben Makuch travels the world to meet with hackers, government officials, and dissidents to investigate the ecosystem of cyberwarfare.

Anonymous came to the fore in 2008 when they attacked the church of Scientology. Since then their coordinated collective action has come up against global corporations and supported the Arab revolutionaries, but how much do we know about who they are and what motivates them?

This video delves into the origin of Anonymous and their evolution.

Featuring interviews with:

  • Former LulzSec members Mustafa Al-Bassam aka tflow and Darren Martyn aka Pwnsauce.
  • Former Anonymous members Mercedes Haefer aka No, Keith Downey and Christopher Weatherhead aka Nerdo.
  • Professor Gabriella Coleman of McGill University aka Biella.

Gabriella Coleman holds the Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy at McGill University.

She is an anthropologist, academic and author whose work focuses on hacker culture and online activism, particularly Anonymous. Gabriella Coleman’s work on Anonymous has led to her becoming a regular media commentator in addition to her academic publications. She is the author of Coding Freedom:

  • “The Ethics and Aesthetics of Hacking”
  • “Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous”.
