This week its been quietly announced that members of the hacker group known as Anonymous are releasing their very own desktop operating system. This system is known at the moment as Anonymous-OS and is currently in as infant a stage as it possibly could be at version 0.1. That's pre-pre-Alpha, for those of you counting, and we're not even going to tell you to download it or do a search for it - keep your eyes off of it!
What this operating system represents is a full toolkit for those of you looking to join the dangerous and illicit world of hacking. Inside the operating system you can actually download today is a relatively vast list of applications that will allow you to crack, spoof, and rip your way into the mainframe just like your heroes from the 1990's movie Hackers, just like you've always wanted to! Have a peek at the list here, and forever hold your keyboards in glee:
Pre-installed apps on Anonymous-OS:
- ParolaPass Password Generator
- Find Host IP
- Anonymous HOIC
- Sql Poison
- Admin Finder
- John the Ripper
- Hash Identifier
- XChat IRC
This OS runs under Ubunti 11.10 and uses Mate desktop - also you've got the ability to create the LiveUSB with Unetbootin - also just like you should expect. If you want to move forward with this OS for your soon-to-be-destroyed computer, head over to The Hacker News and have a look-see. Don't say we didnt warn you though, especially since that source also notes the following: "Warning : It is not developed by any Genuine Source, can be backdoored OS by any Law enforcement Company or Hacker. You at your own Risk." Strong words.
