Julian Assange (founder of wikileaks for any n00bs in the vicinity) is currently seeking asylum in Ecuador for the charges he faces in Sweden. According to BBCNews, the government of Ecuador will be making its final decision concerning the request in the next 24 hours. President Rafael Correa is said to be a fan of Wikileaks and will be consulting with not only Sweden and the UK but also the US in the matter.

“Responding to the violent police treatment of protesters during Occupy Oakland (video below), AntiSec supporters have leaked what appears to be the usernames, passwords, and email addresses of two city employees, while exposing a CMS that manages part of the City of Oakland’s website.

The data leaked by AntiSec supporters – along with a single statement of, “Problem #Oakland authorities? F—- you!” – contains a sample database record, and images taken from the admin area of the Senior Access Guide for Empowerment (SAGE) portal used by Oakland’s Department of Human Services (DHS).

One of the sample links is a copy of an active page, allowing others to access the entire backend by using one of the three administrator accounts provided. Google searches show that the SAGE pages have been in the public for some time.

According to the release, the City of Oakland is using eEye Digital Security’s SecureIIS webserver security suite, which promises, “…integrated multi-layered windows server protection [against] known and unknown exploits, zero day attacks, and unauthorized web access…”

SAGE is what appears to be an ASP driven application, created in-part with a tool called ASPMaker. One of the administrator accounts published by AntiSec supporters comes from T324, a web design and hosting firm located in Albany, California. When the SAGE section of the DHS site was developed by T324, they used version 4 of ASPMaker, which has long since been replaced by several revisions.

It’s possible that access to the user accounts stems from ASPMaker’s role in developing the SAGE portal used by Oakland’s DHS. In addition to IIS 6.0, the site stores all of its content in a MS Access Database.

The age of the development tool, as well as the site itself being publically available, could mean that what AntiSec supporters leaked to the Web is no longer used, or of no critical value to the City of Oakland. However, if it isn’t used or needed, the city needs to remove it. If there is value in the SAGE application, then it needs serious code modifications and protection.

On Tuesday evening, as shown in the video below, the police turned to violence in order to clear Occupy Oakland protesters out of their camp in front of City Hall. Tragically, one protester, an Iraq vet who served two tours and returned home in good health, 24 year-old Scott Olsen, was critically wounded by police.

Oakland PD fired rubber bullets, tear gas, and smoke canisters into the crowd. Olsen was struck in the head by one of the canisters, suffering a fractured skull according to doctors. He is listed in serious, but stable condition.

“As the Occupy Wall Street protests continued for a fourth day on Tuesday, little more than 50 protesters braved the cold and rain to decry the nation’s economic structure.

The protesters occupied Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan — filled with tarps, singing and a strong police presence.

An unnamed police officer told the IBTimes the protests had mostly been peaceful, but protesters claimed that police officers were nonetheless acting outside the law.

One protester, Justin Ferguson, said he was arrested on Monday for having an “Anonymous” mask on the back of his head. Ferguson said he was ultimately released and not charged after going down to the station, but the event shows part of what the protesters are fighting back so hard against.

Ferguson indicated a strong background in computer security and was an ideological supporter of Anonymous. He believed there were about five to 10 Anonymous members at the Occupy Wall Street rally at all times — peaking at roughly 30 members on occasion.

Anonymous is most well-known for its hacking of huge businesses and government organizations, but the free flowing organization has focused in on social justice missions of late.

A group of Anonymous members garnered nationwide attention for the San Francisco protests over a man killed in a Bay Area subway station. The movement, dubbed “OpBart,” generated increased interest in that aspect of the organization, and Ferguson and others are hoping to bring that sort of success to the East Coast.

At the time of the early OpBart protests, Anonymous supporter Michela Marsh told the IBTimes that more supporters unfamiliar with hacking were joining the movement. Marsh indicated that the hackers could expose governments for injustices and the rest could use the information to start a revolution.

“I think we’ll see a lot more government activity exposed by the skilled hackers and many more protests that incorporate not just Anonymous but people who just want to stop corruption, oppression and related injustices,” Marsh told the IBTimes.

The group has been criticized for some of its hacking efforts, including recently for releasing information on BART customers, but Marsh hopes that the social justice efforts ultimately garner more attention and win out over unnecessary hacking.

“The newer members (of Anonymous) are the ones trying to organize protests, the ones going out and doing real-world work,” she told the IBTimes. “Fortunately, I think the real-world activities will end up being the ones that get the most attention.”

A man who identified himself only as an Anonymous supporter, said he hoped that the success of OpBart can get East Coast residents out of their homes and into the streets to protest.

The ultimate hope, the man said, was to get 30,000 or more people out on the streets to generate a lot of attention for the movement.

But that could be an issue for protesters if New York police officers continue to curtail the movement. The unidentified man with Ferguson noted that police officers came to the park area early on Tuesday morning and ripped off the tarp covering the group’s electronics.

The group has heavily utilized Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets to push the Occupy Wall Street message, but had an apparent setback when the equipment was exposed to the rain when the tarp was taken off.

The man said the group scrambled to protect the equipment as quickly as they could, but that police “did it when we were more or less unguarded.”

The Occupy Wall Street group, including Anonymous members, hopes to stay in the park for as long as it takes for change to happen.

Ferguson admitted that staying out there for five years to see change wasn’t realistic, but that the group was very determined to create reform.”~Source: International Business Times «click to re-read or to watch their video))

Wild #Anons (epicfailguise) ❤ in NYC today #takewallstreet #sept17 #occupywallstreet

and the last guy for extra lulz.

“In a movement meant to rival change wrought by the Arab Spring, Kalle Lasn of the counterculture magazine AdBusters, organized a Twitter led protest Saturday called Occupy Wall Street.

In response, thousands gathered in New York’s Financial District.

The Wall Street subway station stairwell was closed on one side, as multiple blocks around Broadway and Wall Street were cordoned off and bound by a heavy police presence.

Endorsed by the hacking group Anonymous, the police were taking no chances. But looking at an army of bored officers racking up overtime, the general response was summed up by one young New York City officer: “If you find the protest, let us know, because we haven’t heard a thing about it since we got here.”~All credit for short article and pics to Business-insider
