Anonymous creates website to ‘combat censorship’
London: Notorious Internet hacking group Anonymous has created an online portal that would allow people to post uncensored documents without compromising their identities.
The group’s new ‘safe and secure’ website named ‘AnonPaste’, has been created as an alternative to Pastebin, the site they had traditionally used to reveal details of their attacks.
AnonPaste has already been used to spread details of planned attacks, The BBC reports.
Anonymous has been using Twitter most of the time to publicise their activities, but the microblog`s limit of 140 characters means they redirect users to much longer ‘pastes’ elsewhere to share details of hijacked emails, passwords and other information.
There has been a backlash against Pastebin since its owner Jeroen Vader said he planned to hire more staff to police ‘sensitive posts’.
After an interview with Vader in April, some Anonymous users switched to rival, but less advanced sites such as Pastebay.
