BlitzSec, the group of hackers that so far only published proof of concepts to reveal that some major websites were vulnerable, now shows its hacktivist side, breaching the official site of the Library of Congress (loc.gov) to protests against the US Congress’ actions.
“Congress this is a message to you, STOP passing laws of tyranny, STOP letting those such as Rothschild and Rockefeller control the government. Get the printing press out of the hands of the FED and back under the houses of congress!” the hackers said.
“STOP throwing the Constitution of the United States on the ground and using it as your personal doormat, stand by the Constitution, protect it from those who wish to abolish it which inturn will abolish any and all rights we have.“
To prove their point, the hackers leveraged an SLQ Injection vulnerability and gained unauthorized access to the site’s database. As a result, the database’s structure, usernames, passwords, names and email addresses, including the ones of the administrators, were published in a Pastebin post.
“We are in a police state, you have the power to stop it, you have the power to return us back to what we were before things such as NDAA and the infamous ‘Patriot Act’,” they explained.
“You say we are the criminals? You say we are the terrorists, well ladies and gentle men of congress, I'm sorry to say but you are wrong... Dead wrong, you my friends are the criminals, you my friends are the terrorists.”
BlitzSec accuse members of the Congress of destroying the country’s Constitution, the principles it stands for being the ones that helped the nation form.
“If you do not do something soon, you can take our word, We The People will rise up, We The People will put an end to it and We The People will return this country back to its former greatness,” the hackers concluded.
