Anonymous to Start OpKKK

The internet is a place where lots can happen. People can have their details exposed, like those that were taken in the latest breaches at TalkTalk or they could have them misused in SWAT’ings. Some people believe though that this means that not only can the internet be misused, it can also be used for good. To represent and defend the common people, one such group is Anonymous.

Famous for their operations against governments and controversial groups, Anonymous are already acting on their next operation, titled Operation KKK. Designed to target the Klu Klux Klan, who are listed as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation league and is said to have anywhere between 5,000 and 8,000 members. Anonymous wants to unmask around 1,000 of these in the next phase of their operation, an action called Hoods Off on November 5th.

Not one to shy away from the public, Anonymous have been updating their twitter reporting already that many sites related to the KKK have already been taken offline, and that more will come.

A hacker going by the name of Amped Attacks has already helped out with this by taking down the Westboro Baptist Church’s website as well as several KKK websites. In doing so they have apparently also gained access to a list of identifying information for a range of people including Mayors and Senators.

6 New Boards On The Horizon From MSI for Intel’s 5th Gen Chipset

Over the last few weeks we have been hearing some interesting information come to light regarding Intel’s 5th Generation chipset and its Haswell Refresh processors and with a launch date of 11th May only a matter of weeks away now, we are starting to see snippets of information come through with regards to the motherboards that are going to power the 5th Generation processors.

MSI have been throwing out some teasers of what is to come in their latest motherboard lineup and whilst some boards were on display at this year’s CeBIT in Germany, they were only prototype items. This means that whilst they give us an insight into what is on offer when the boards finally go on sale, what is seen is only to be taken with a pinch of salt and things are likely to change between then and the final release.

So what do we know about the new line of motherboards and what features will we see across the product stack? Like previous generation boards we will see the latest release of many features including Military Class IV components, V-Check Points 2, OC Engine, Audio Boost 2 and new to this line of boards we will also see an M.2 interface for the latest SSDs as standard and a Delid Die Guard for the XPower AC as seen last week.

To break up what each board will bring to the market, have a look at the next couple of pages where I’ll touch on what each board has to offer as we go up through the stack. At the moment there is no work on pricing for any of these boards, although we will be certain to keep you all updated as information comes to light.
