Hackers Take Aim at GOP
By Noah Shachtman
02:00 AM Aug. 17, 2004 PT
Online protests targeting GOP websites could turn out to be more than
symbolic during this month's Republican National Convention, possibly
critical communications tool for the party.
In the past, activists have been able to shut down the website of,
say, the World Economic Forum for a few hours. But the impact of such
a takedown was nebulous at best: It's hard to argue the organization
really suffered from a
few-hour lag in posting its press releases online.
In this year's presidential race, however, campaign websites have moved
beyond the margins. During John Kerry's acceptance speech in Boston last
for example, his website was visited by 50,000 people an hour, according
to comScore Networks, the online traffic-measuring firm. That's a droplet
compared to the millions who'll watch the convention on TV. But taking
down a campaign website would nevertheless remove a critical tool for
reaching the public -- and
likely generate a slew of stories in the mainstream media about the crash.
So it's no surprise that hardened electronic activists are planning to
the servers of GeorgeWBush.com, GOP.com and related websites, once the
Republican National Convention gets underway
"We want to bombard (the Republican sites) with so much traffic that
get in," said CrimethInc, a member of the so-called Black Hat Hackers
Bloc. It's one of several groups planning to
distribute software tools to reload Republican sites over and over again.
FloodNet programs are similar to hackers' distributed
denial-of-service attacks, which overwhelm a server with thousands
and thousands of simultaneous requests for information.
But some activists are condemning the planned attacks, saying they
principles of free speech that protesters rely on for their
"If you feel that you must shut up someone through intimidation or
false accusations or any other method -- you are not relying on the
superiority of the truth," The Pull, co-founder of the online
action group Hacktivismo, wrote in an e-mail. "People can not condemn
and then embrace it."
The point of the electronic demonstrations isn't to take down a site,
to Ricardo Dominguez, co-founder of the Electronic Disturbance
which is releasing a FloodNet program of
its own. Unlike hackers' denial-of-service attacks, which often hijack
people use the program. "It's a way to let
people around the world gather and let their presence be felt," Dominguez
Not that he would mind if a Republican server just happened to crash
way. In 2002, at the EDT's direction, 43,000 people flooded the site
of the World Economic Forum during its meeting in
New York. The organization's website went offline for several hours
The Black Hat Hackers Bloc is hoping to cause a whole lot more trouble
Republicans start to gather in New York. The groups will be targeting not
GOP computers, but "e-mail, faxes and
phones, too," CrimethInc said, as well as unspecified "financial
Officials from the Republican Party and from Computer Horizons, the
Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, firm responsible for network services at
did not respond to requests to comment
for this article.
It's unclear exactly how effective these online actions will be. In an
interview, CrimethInc boasted that his associates defaced the website
Abuse Resistance Education, or DARE, with a
pro-pot-legalization screed, and promised similar strikes against
Republican sites. In the past, veteran online activists have called
these tactics the "kind of stupidity that gives hacking a bad name."
The attacks during the Republican convention may be just the beginning,
At the Hackers on Planet Earth gathering in New York City, one speaker
attendees, "You will learn how to
infiltrate organizations like the RNC, how to look for and find security
and how mischief and mayhem is achieved."

Hackers are organizing for a massive electronic civil disobedience
against the Republican party to coincide with the massive protests in
New York City for the Republican National Convention. This document

We won't stand idly by while the Republican Party exploits the democratic
of New York to further their agenda of
endless war, attacks on our
freedoms and and breaks for corporations. We demand an end to the
"war on terrorism", which is nothing more
than a pretext for empire
and the erosion of our civil rights. As long as Amerikkka continues to
their war on the poor for the benefit
of the rich, we will use all
weapons at our disposal to disrupt the RNC - on the streets, and on
All are encouraged to help out this campaign in any way they can. Deface
websites, flood email servers, cause financial disruption, change
electronic billboards. Turn the system over and put the people on top.
Hacktivists of the world, unite!
What will be happening?
August 22nd - Day of online direct action a week before the convention
All are encouraged to attack as many right-wing, corporate, government or
military sites as possible. Web defacements, email attacks, financial
disruption, anything and everything. These attacks will be used to stir
discussion of the RNC, encourage people to participate in the protestsin
NYC itself, and to build for the mainstream electronic sit-in on the

session. The actions will commence on
noon of each day. The
protests will utilize a wide diversity of tactics including email,
phone disruption. The logistical
details of this campaign are included in
this document below.
Who are we flooding?
The email addresses, fax numbers, and phone numbers listed below are
contacts of the Republican National
Committee and the official
George W. Bush re-election staff.
Isn't this cyber terrorism?
It is important to make a distinction between electronic civil
terrorism. Civil disobedience is a
fundamental part of the democratic
process which our country was founded upon. Like Henry David Thoreau
revolutionary forefathers who shot up
the pigs at Lexington and
Concord, electronic civil disobedience is the logical continuation of
theories applied towards the internet as
a medium for disruption. ECD is a
legitimate protest act.
Terrorism tries to instill fear into people through violence and
Terrorism is not an act of liberation
or unity but of division fear and
conquer. A bitter act of desperation that solves no problems, makes no
statement, and disempowers many. Electronic
civil disobedience causes no
harm to people or property. Instead of disempowering, ECD tries to bring
together to realize and exercise
their power over oppressive
governments and corporations using hacking as a means of fighting for

Fellow citizens, PARTICIPATE!
You do not need to be an experienced hacker to help this campaign: we've
it easy for people to help out through
a variety of different ways.
The mainstream electronic sit-in is composed of several methods of
flooding RNC websites, email
addresses, fax and phone numbers.
Listed below are the targets and explanations / tools you can use to help
WEB SITE FLOODING
We are asking people to use all tools at their disposal to bombard the
servers with so much traffic that it
will become unable to serve any
more web requests. People can participate in the actions by using the
floodnet scripts on the campaign website
or by launching your own
distributed denial of service attacks.
The Republican National Convention: http://www.2004nycgop.org/ The
Republican National Committee: http://www.rnc.org/
George W. Bush official re-election site: http://www.georgewbush.com/
You can help flood these servers by going to our website and running the
FloodNet tools on our website. There is a
web-based tool and several perl
scripts that you can use to flood the targets. You can also download
several denial of service applications
on your home machine and point
them to the above servers.
A list of good denial of service tools for the Mac is available at
Mac Archive) and http://
undergroundmac.com/hacking.html#dos (Underground Mac)
A list of good denial of service tools for Windows is available at
... but denial of service attacks isn't hacking!
DoS attacks are seen as somewhat lame in the hacking community because it
not require any actual skills to
perform such attacks - any script
kiddie can simply download a few tools and launch attacks against major
servers. It can hardly be considered hacking.
But it is a method of
electronic disruption that can bring the enemy's servers to it's
reason to overlook tools at our disposal.
E-mail bomb attacks are done by sending tens of thousands of emails to
enemy's contact addresses. This can make
it painful to send and
receive emails while simultaneously consuming server resources, possibly
slowing or shutting it down. There are
numerous tools that one can use
to perform such attacks.
There are a number of Windows email bombers available for download at
A number of good email bombers for the mac are available at

Fax bombing is a method of electronic disruption that clogs the
communications and wastes their paper and
toner resources. Tape
together a few sheets of black construction paper and start faxing to the
following targets. When the first page goes
through, roll it back and tape it
to the other end of your sheet to form an infinite loop of black
paper. Then sit back and watch the
mayhem begin. Use any and all fax
machines at your availability - the more the merrier!
Phone bombing is another method of disrupting their communication
preventing them from making / receiving
calls. You can either call
these numbers and tell them what you think about the Bush agenda, or
beige box into someone else's line and
set up auto-dialing scripts
to flood their lines.
That's all for today, kids. Stay out of trouble, and don't get caught!
