Update: We’re received an email stating:
“Dear CopBlock, this is a member of ZcompanyHackingCrew, i am a huge fan of your guys work, and i happened to be able to connect shadow008, as he is in a crew that we work with from time to time, he claims that its not him that sent you that message, i will provide chat logs below, but he bears no responsibility for it, however there is a group called shadowsec, its hit or miss if there real, that you could be confusing him with…”
It appears this was a troll trying to use fear to get us to stop producing Police content.
The block quoted text below was sent to CopBlock.org via the submission tab and I’ve added my thoughts as well (below the block quotes).
It would seem Cop Block has been showing a lot of support to the cyber terrorist group of Anonymous. We, of the group Shadow, are fully engaged to fighting fire with fire to Anonymous and anyone who supports their criminal hacking. Since someone beat us to it with attacking your servers, we have an alternative way to make you change your support of them. Maybe a taste of what victims of Anonymous have gone through with releasing personal info and “call floods” to your numbers. Maybe release yoy or your family members address? This has been a long time coming and you deserve a taste of it. We enjoy a challenge so it was decided to warn you in advancw. Prepare youselves…..the war has started. We are Shadow: even legions have a larger Shadow watching
First, “CopBlock” can’t support anyone because, like Anonymous, CopBlock is everyone and no one. Yet, no body – not even myself – can speak for CopBlock.org as a whole. The statement that “CopBlock.org supports Anonymous” is false, though I personally do support certain aspects of Anonymous. To be more exact, I support certain individuals – and/or several of individuals working together – who help hold those doing wrong accountable. I agree that some folks who may or may not be associated with Anon do things I disagree with, but I don’t support them.
As for your threats to DoX me, or any CopBlock.org contributor, go ahead. What do you want to know? That I live in Keene, NH and anyone who visits the Shire Society Forum could find out where? Or post dirty emails that I’ve sent (or had sent to me)? Tell everyone that my legal name is Adam Mueller, I’m a felon due to the war on drugs (neither of those are a secretes)? Or that when I was young I racked up some heavy credit card debt that I’ve yet to pay off? What are you going to post that anyone would care to read?
Sounds like a waste of your time and skills. Remember, while you’re digging up the goods on me, there are still governments out there taking your freedom away. There are still people out there trying to censor information. There are people out there who claim they have a right to a certain percentage of what you make because of where you were born, or because some rules were made that you never agreed to. There are people out there who want to control every aspect of your life. Know that while you attack the good people, you help the bad.
Do what you will. . . I’m not nearly smart enough to stop you.
