Imperva’s Hacker Intelligence Summary Report The Anatomy of an Anonymous Attack White Paper 2 The Anatomy of an Anonymous Attack Executive Summary During 2011, Imperva witnessed an assault by the hacktivist group ‘Anonymous’ that lasted 25 days. Our observations give insightful information on Anonymous, including a detailed analysis of hacking methods, as well as an examination of how social media provides a communications platform for recruitment and attack coordination. Hacktivism has grown dramatically in the past year and has become a priority for security organizations worldwide. Understanding Anonymous’ attack methods will help organizations prepare if they are ever a target. Our observation of an Anonymous campaign reveals: › The process used by Anonymous to pick victims as well as recruit and use needed hacking talent. › How Anonymous leverages social networks to recruit members and promotes hack campaigns. › The specific cyber reconnaissance and attack methods used by Anonymous’ hackers.

Finally, we recommend key mitigation steps that organizations need to help protect against attacks. Methodology This report is based on an Anonymous attack observed by the Imperva Application Defense Center. The target organization of the attack had a Web application firewall deployed which recorded and repelled the attacks. By analyzing traffic logs, we analyzed the attacks on these applications and categorized them according to the attack method, as well as identified patterns and trends within these attacks. We also analyzed Anonymous social media communications in the days leading up to and after the attack. We believe this is the first end-to-end record of a full Anonymous attack. The attack took place in 2011. However, to protect against another Anonymous attack of this organization, we want the organization that was attacked – sorry, pun unavoidable – to remain anonymous.
