قررت اليوم أن أعيد نشر هذا الخبر لأسلط الأضواء وتأخذني الحسرة في آن واحد لما تزخر بها بلداننا الإسلامية من أدمغة وطاقات خامة وواعدة ما أحوجنا إليها تنتظر سوى من يصقل مواهبها ويستغلها في مصلحة البلد قبل أن تهاجرأعشاشها أو تسقط في فخ عنكبوت المافيا. إذن الفرق بيننا وبين الغرب سوى النظام في كل شيء ( الحياة اليومية من شغل وتربية الأطفال وطريقة كلامهم ومعاملاتهم... إلخ ،) تتم بدراسة مستقبلية معقولة ومعمقة وباجماع . هذا من بين بعض نماذج نجاحهم. فأما نحن فدائما وأبدا نعيش على أنقاض الماضى المجيد في انتظار ما ستحمله لنا الربيع العربي أو الفصول الأربعة العربية لنعيش الفوضى من جديد تحت قانون الغاب الإطاحة بالدكتاتورية.
ولكم حرية التعلبق!
قرر نائب المدعي العام بروما ترحيل "الهاكر" المغربي الجنسية، رشيد ابن اليمني، الملقب بـ"الشبح"، والذي ينتسب إلى منظمة "أنونيموس" للقرصنة الإلكترونية، إلى الأراضي الأمريكية، وفق ما أوردته جريدة "لاريبيبليكا" الإيطالية، في عددها يوم أمس الأربعاء، حيث خصصت حيزا كبيرا لاعترافات الهاكر المغربي للسلطات الأمنية الإيطالية.
وكشفت الصحيفة ذاتها بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفدرالي FBI كان قد أرسل عملاء خاصين، ومعهم مذكرة اعتقال دولية في حق "الشبح"، لكي يتم ترحيله ومحاكمته على التهم المنسوبة إليه؛ من قرصنة بنوك ومواقع حساسة لعدة دول، ومجموع الأموال المختلسة من العمليات التي كان يقوم بها "الشبح" بلغ 8 مليون دولار أمريكي.
وأبرز المصدر ذاته بأن التحقيقات الأولية التي أجرتها الشرطة الإيطالية، وبعد تفكيك المعدات والرسائل المشفرة، تبين أن هذا الشخص كانت له علاقة مع المافيا الإيطالية، حيث كانت توفر له الحماية مقابل مبالغ طائلة تحصل عليها من عمليات القرصنة التي ينفذها المغربي "الشبح".
وسردت الصحيفة الإيطالية أجزاء من القصة المثيرة لـ"الشبح" المغربي، حيث وصفته بالعبقري الذي كان يقطن في حي شعبي بمراكش، وكان ذكيا منذ كان صغيرا، يخالط أبناء الحي حتى أبناء الجيران، واليوم صار الكل يدعي أنه يعرفه، صديقه الوحيد هو ألعابه والحاسوب".
واستطردت الجريدة "تعرف رشيد على فتاة رومانية من أصول يهودية عن طريق الأنترنت، حيث كان حسب اعترافاته، يتبادل معها دوريا المعلومات وطرق صناعة ”البرامج المعلوماتية” الموجهة بالخصوص إلى اختراق المواقع الإلكترونية للمؤسسات البنكية والصناعية، وكذا المواقع الإلكترونية السرية التي يصعب اختراقها كموقع مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي الأمريكي، الذي تمكن من اختراقه بسهولة بالنظر لتمتعه، حسب ما توصلت إليه مصالح الأمن، بعبقرية وذكاء خارقين للعادة".
وكشف الشاب المغربي لرجال التحقيق الإيطاليين بأنه انضم إلى منظمة "أنونيموس" العالمية عن طريق تلك الفتاة الرومانية التي كانت عضوا فيها، وهي من فتحت له الطريق وعرفته على أعضاء آخرين، فصار رشيد عضوا معهم وتحت ظلهم ومنفذا لأوامرهم ومساندا لهم".
وبخصوص عمليات قرصنته للبنوك أفاد الشبح في اعترافاته بأنها عمليات لا علاقة لها بمنظمة "المجهولين"، وبأن قرصنته لتلك الأبناك كانت مصدر عيش لي، ومنها آكل وأشرب، وأعيش حياة الملوك" وفق ما قاله الشاب المغربي للسلطات الأمنية في إيطاليا.
وسأل رجال التحقيق "الشبح" المغربي عما يطلبه من بلده الأصلي، فأجاب الهاكر المعتقل: "لم أطلب قط شيء من بلدي لأنني أعرف جيدا بأنهم لن يستمعوا لي، أنا أحب بلدي المغرب، لكني ساخط على من يسيرون المغرب"، تبعا لما نشرته الصحيفة الإيطالية.
Police arrest Anonymous suspects in Italy
The four suspected hackers are accused of taking control of the Italian branch of Anonymous
Italian police arrested four suspected hackers Friday, accusing them of having taken control of the Italian branch of the Anonymous network.
The alleged hackers, aged between 20 and 34, were placed under house arrest near the northern cities of Bologna, Turin and Venice, and in the southern town of Lecce.
Six more people were placed formally under investigation and a total of 10 premises were raided at the conclusion of a two-year police investigation code-named "Tango Down."
Investigators said the group, which had created a dominant cell within Anonymous Italy, was responsible for cyberattacks on commercial and government websites, including sites belonging to the Vatican, the Italian prime minister's office, the defense ministry, the police, Bank of Italy and the national railway company Trenitalia.
"They were like a cancerous cell within the Anonymous organization," said Ivano Gabrielli, a deputy police chief at the National Center for Computer Crime and the Protection of Critical Infrastructure (CNAIPIC), who helped coordinate the investigation. "They had taken over the brand and were using it for their own personal benefit," Gabrielli said in a telephone interview. "It was a vanguard cell that was carving out a position of power at the head of Anonymous Italy. That's somewhat anomalous in a supposedly anarchic structure."
Some members of the group who are IT professionals offered their services to commercial companies to repair the damage caused by their own attacks, Gabrielli said.
The group had clashed with other members of Anonymous over ideological questions and had sought to consolidate its dominant position by denouncing some of its rivals to the police, he said. "They were responsible for reporting about 30 people to the authorities."
Members of the group allegedly divided responsibility for different activities between them, some selecting targets, others carrying out the cyberattacks and yet others claiming responsibility for them.
The police investigation involved analyzing the technical characteristics of the attacks and the documents claiming responsibility for them, monitoring discussions on social media, the interception of electronic messages and phone calls, and infiltration of the group by undercover officers, Gabrielli said.
The suspects are accused of using the Internet for a criminal conspiracy, the first time such a charge has been employed in Italy, and face up to eight years imprisonment if convicted.
"The investigation was coordinated by the Rome prosecutor's office and any trial will probably be celebrated in the capital," Gabrielli said.
Gabrielli's organization was embarrassed two years ago when a subgroup of Anonymous claimed to have stolen 8GB of secret documents from the CNAIPIC computer.
Most of the documents actually came from elsewhere, Gabrielli said.
Investigators said the four arrested suspects were IT professionals leading a double life. They worked as hackers mainly at night and even their families were unaware of their criminal activity, the online edition of La Stampa newspaper reported.
Italian ‘Tango Down’ operation arrests 4 Anonymous hackers
*****down on hacker group Anonymous has seen the arrests of four suspected hacktivists in Italy, report local police. The four are thought to be behind multiple cyber-attacks on the Vatican and the Italian government. The suspects have been placed under house arrest for the time being while searches are conducted on their respective properties. The operation, named ‘Tango Down’ by Italian police, was a countrywide *****down led by the General Public Prosecutor's Office in Rome.
Italian police released a statement saying the four individuals were part of the hacktivist movement and were responsible for attacks on Italian government bodies and the Vatican. However, investigators added that the group also carried out criminal activities using the name of Anonymous as a mask to hide behind.
“We have demonstrated that this branch of Anonymous Italy was a criminal organization that used the name of Anonymous as a pretext to carry out their own activities that are not connected to the political agenda of the Anonymous movement in other parts of the world,” said the police statement.
According to police information the four individuals hacked into businesses, only to then contact them and sell their own IT solutions as anti-virus software.
Anonymous has yet to make a statement regarding the arrest of the four individuals.
Last year the Vatican’s website was taken down by the hacktivist group who cited the “corruption” of the Roman Catholic Church as the principle motivation for the cyber-assault.
"Anonymous decided today to besiege your site in response to the doctrine, to the liturgies, to the absurd and anachronistic concepts that your for-profit organization spreads around the world,” said a statement posted on the Italian website of the Anonymous movement.
"This attack is not against the Christian religion or the faithful around the world but against the corrupt Roman Apostolic Church."
Anonymous rose to prominence in late 2010 when it executed a series of cyber-attacks against companies that were trying to prevent the disclosure of information by whistleblowing site WikiLeaks.
More recently the group has carried out attacks on Israeli government websites and shut down media accounts and official sites in North Korea.

Top members of hacking group Anonymous arrested after LEADER 'betrays them and works with FBI for six months'
Leader of computer hacking group LulzSec identified as unemployed dad-of-two Hector Xavier Monsegur
Secretly arrested last June and pleaded guilty to hacking charges in August
Has reportedly been working with FBI to bring down top hackers ever since
Court papers released Tuesday portray him as ringleader of hacking groups
Five members from UK, Ireland and US face charges
Top members of computer hacking groups Anonymous and LulzSec have been arrested across two continents after their leader - one of the world's most wanted computer vandals - turned them in.
In a startling show of betrayal towards his fellow hackers, 28-year-old Hector Xavier Monsegur led authorities to the five people who have now been charged in court papers in New York.
Dad-of-two Monsegur, who has pleaded guilty to a dozen hacking-related charges, is portrayed in court papers as the ringleader of LulzSec, and an 'influential member' of Anonymous.
Ever since his arrest last June, he has reportedly been working with authorities to bring down the groups' top hackers.
Betrayal: The leader of hacking group LulzSec has been identified as Hector Xavier Monsegur. Since his arrest last June, he has reportedly been working with the FBI to identify other members
The suspects reportedly include four LulzSec members - two men from Great Britain and two from Ireland - and one member of Anonymous - an American named Jeremy Hammond from Chicago.
Three were arrested and two were charged with conspiracy, Fox News reported. Hammond was arrested and appeared before a federal judge in Chicago before he was transferred to New York.
'This is devastating to the organization,' an FBI official told the channel. 'We’re chopping off the head of LulzSec.'
The hackers have claimed to be responsible for a number of attacks on large companies, law enforcement and government agencies, including the CIA, FBI and Sony.
They are believed to have caused billions of dollars in damages to corporations, banks and agencies.
Members attained notoriety last May by attacking the PBS website and posting a story claiming rapper Tupac Shakur was alive and living in New Zealand.
Caught: The information he provided reportedly led to charges for five top members across two continents. Four worked for LulzSec and one for Anonymous, whose supporters wear Guy Fawkes masks, as pictured
The group was allegedly led by Monsegur, who works under the alias of Sabu. The unemployed father of two was living in New York's Lower East Side when he was seized by authorities.
They found his address after logging into a chatroom without masking his IP - the address which shows a user's whereabouts.
Authorities launched surveillance and watched him for weeks - but were forced to move when a rival hacker revealed Monsegur's identity online. LULZSEC AND ANONYMOUS
Anonymous is the umbrella term used to represent an internet subculture – a collection of online individuals, or 'hacktivists', who share common ideas of anti-censorship and freedom of speech on the internet.
They have carried out cyber attacks on Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and Amazon, and have threatened to take down Facebook and Twitter servers.
Although it is not formerly affiliated with it, the group has connections with the lesser-known hacking group LulzSec.
LulzSec, short for Lulz Security, is an offshoot of Anonymous and some members have been parts of both collectives .
LulzSec is an elite computer hacker group that has claimed responsibility for several high-profile, debilitating cyber attacks.
Their big hits include the compromising of user account data from Sony Pictures and taking the CIA website offline.
They also attacked Fox.com, leaking the names of more than 7,000 X Factor contestants, and the PBS Newshour website, where they posted a story claiming that slain killer Tupac was still living and in New Zealand.
The group aims to cause mayhem as well as manipulate flaws in security and passwords systems.
Fearing he would destroy his hard drives - and thus evidence needed to prove his guilt - they arrested him in June last year. He pleaded guilty to 12 counts of hacking charges on August 15.
His records were unsealed today, charging him with conspiracy to engage in computer hacking, among other charges.
The court papers describe him as an 'influential member of three hacking organizations — Anonymous, Internet Feds and Lulz Security — that were responsible for multiple cyber attacks on the computer systems of various businesses and governments in the United States and throughout the world'.
They claim he acted as a 'rooter', a computer hacker who identified vulnerabilities in computer systems.
As part of Anonymous, court papers claim he took part cyber attacks from December 2010 until last June, including attacks on Visa, MasterCard and PayPaul, and further attacks on government computers in Tunisia, Algeria, Yemeni and Zimbabwe.
As part of Internet Feds, he is alleged to have participated in attacks against businesses including HBGary Inc., a private security firm and Fox Broadcasting Co.
And he is accused of forming LulzSec last May with other hackers, who then attacked Sony, PBS and the United States Senate, among others.
Monsegur was free on $50,000 bail.
Also charged in court papers with conspiracy to commit computer hacking were Ryan Ackroyd and Jake Davis from Great Britain, and Darren Martyn and Donncha O’Cearrbhail of Ireland.
Two of the men, who are all suspected members of LulzSec, were arrested on Tuesday, while Davis and Martyn have already been arrested.
Fox claims Monsegur has been feeding authorities information about LulzSec ever since his arrest, bringing them down from the inside.
Questions: Jerermy Hammond from Chicgo, Illinois (left in 2009) and Donncha O’Cearrbhail of Ireland (right)
Charges: Sources named Jake Davis (left), from the United Kingdom, as one of the hackers facing charges. English teenager Ryan Cleary, (right) already faces hacking charges, allegedly as part of LulzSec
Yet he has continued to be a public face for the movement, tweeting to his followers on Monday: 'The federal government is run by a bunch of f****** cowards. Don't give in to these people. Fight back. Stay strong.'
In August, 2011, it came to light that Anonymous had hacked into 70 law enforcement websites, mostly local sheriffs’ websites in Missouri.
The hacks had occurred four weeks before the discovered. Using information passed on by Monsegur, the FBI was able to work with the server company to mitigate the damage, Fox claims.
'He was an admired Anon. He's been a leader. People came to him with information. God knows what else he told them'
The FBI then alerted 300 government, financial and corporate entities around the world to potential vulnerabilities in their computer systems.
Stories have also emerged about Sabu's far-reaching power. When the CIA found itself under siege from LulzSec hackers, Sabu, working for the government, told them to stop, and they did.
'He's a rockstar,' a New York-based hacker told Fox. 'All the girls, you buy them a drink, but all they want to talk about is Sabu, Sabu, Sabu.'
Barrett Brown, a former journalist who became closely associated with Anonymous, said Sabu's betrayal would have a serious effect on the group.
Mass damage: The hacking group Anonymous, whose logo is pictured, is believed to have caused billions of dollars in damages to corporations, banks and government agencies
'He was an admired Anon,' he told AP. 'He's been a leader. People came to him with information. God knows what else he told them.'
The arrested member of Anonymous, Jeremy Hammond from Chicago, was arrested on charges of hacking and device access fraud.
He reportedly caused the hacking of Stratfor Security Intelligence, which led to the leak of 200GB worth of emails then published on Wikileaks.
Fox sources said Hammond will be charged in a separate indictment, and they described him as a member of Anonymous.
Some of the alleged associates of the group are already facing charges elsewhere.
In July, reputed LulzSec spokesman, 18-year-old Jake Davis, was arrested in Scotland. Sources named him as one of those facing charges in New York.
Another English teenager Ryan Cleary, was arrested by British law enforcement in June and charged with being linked to the group.

7 Anonymous Hackers Who Have Been Unmasked
Deric Lostutter of Winchester, Ky., revealed on June 6, 2013, that he is a member of Anonymous.
Another member of the hacker collective Anonymous has been unmasked this week.
In a letter posted Thursday on projectknightsec.com (a website run by Anonymous), Deric Lostutter, a 26-year-old from Winchester, Ky., revealed that he is a member of Anonymous. Lostutter was raided by the FBI after he and other members of Anonymous got involved in a rape case in Steubenville, Ohio, that gained national attention in late 2012. When two members of a high school football team in the city were accused of raping a 16-year-old girl, Anonymous members did not think the case was getting enough attention and leaked information about people they believed were involved.
This week, anticipating a grand jury indictment for a felony and two misdemeanor counts, Lostutter voluntarily revealed his identity to the world in hopes that the media and citizens who supported his actions would help him.
Most members of Anonymous remain unknown, but as the loosely organized group has gained fame, many members have drawn law enforcement fire -- and lost their anonymity as a result. Here's a look at seven other Anonymous members whose identities have been uncovered.
Hammond said he participated in the hack on behalf of Anonymous and its subgroup LulzSec. "I did this because I believe people have a right to know what governments and corporations are doing behind closed doors," he said in a statement posted on his website. "I did what I believe is right."
But now he is on the run. Shortly after his arrest, Doyan jumped bail and fled to Canada through what he calls an "underground railroad."
Unlike most members of Anonymous, journalist Barrett Brown has never tried to remain...anonymous. This self-proclaimed "spokesman" for the hacktivist collective was arrested in September 2012 and indicted on charges of "making an online threat, retaliating against a federal officer and conspiring to release the personal information of a U.S. government employee," The Dallas Morning News reported.
Brown was later additionally indicted on charges related to the Stratfor Global Intelligence Service hack.
