So What is Anti-Sec?


After Astalavista was taken down by the “anti-sec group” many people are wondering just what anti-sec is. I hope that this article will enlighten anyone who reads it on the ideals, concepts, and fundamentals of anti-sec.

Anti-sec is just a shortened version of Anti Security. If whitehat hackers represent the Security Industry then blackhat hackers would represent anti-sec. A quick and simple explaination of anti-sec is that there are a group of people that support the idea that fundamentally the whitehats are breeding more trouble for companies by advocating full disclosure and allowing more and my skids to attack sites without knowing how any exploit truely works. By having skids run rampantly though cyberspace companies are scared into thinking they too will be hacked and that it is only a matter of time. This is where another idea of anti-sec comes in. Whitehats feed off of the fear of companies and essentially tell them, “Listen, you WILL be hacked, unless you let me secure your system for a hefty fine.” Whether you believe this or not is your own personal opinion but regardless this article will shed some light onto why the anti-sec movement believes in the things it believes in.

One of the sites I found to have quite a wealth of information on the anti-sec movement is http://romeo.copyandpaste.info . This site has quite a few papers explaining the ideals and motivations of the anti-sec movement and really opened my eyes to just what anti-sec really was and I consider it an invaluable resource. I highly recommend that blackhats and whitehats alike read through the articles on the site and create their opinion on just where they stand on the Sec vs Anti-sec issue.

  7. In my eyes you and the fucking anti-sec are just lame kids behind there laptops. real skill will not be used for private or for black fame. You will learn that very fast when you try to look on your own domain what got hacked & blocked via permission rights.
