Thor: The Dark World

After Thor (2011) and The Avengers (2012), The Mighty Thor is back in Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World”.

Thor03

In the aftermath of The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Thor06

I actually love Thor 2 more than Thor 1. There’s more action and interesting story line. Asgard, although mostly CGI-ed, looks beautiful. And everyone love to hate Loki. If you haven’t catch Thor: The Dark World, you should soon.

Thor: The Dark World is now showing in Singapore.

Oh and by the way, there are 2 end credits scenes. The first end credits scene involve a cameo appearance by one of the villain in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Straits Times Blog hacked by Anonymous

The Straits Times Blog was hacked today morning by a hacker claiming to be part of the Anonymous collective. The hack came one day after The Straits Times published a report on it website regarding a YouTube video threatening to attack the Singapore Government. The hacker, who goes by the name ‘The Messiah’, decided to hack Straits Times Blog after the paper modify the sentence “war against the Singapore Government” into “war against Singapore” in the report.

STBlogHacked

The hacker has given the reporter, Irene Tham, 48 hours to make an apology to the citizens of Singapore for trying to mislead them or resign. If not, the Anonymous collective will hack other Singapore Press Holdings websites.

Singapore Press Holdings issued a statement saying that they have made a police report and the police are investigating.

Anonymous threaten cyber war with Singapore Government

A hacker group claiming to be part of the Anonymous collective is threatening to go on cyber war with the Singapore Government if it does not stop the MDA licensing framework that was implemented on 1 June 2013.

The original video on YouTube was removed yesterday by the user shortly after it went viral.

Greetings Government of Singapore. We are Anonymous and we believe that we have your undivided attention.

We also believe that you have had the pleasure of meeting our comrade The Messiah, who demonstrated what a single Anon could do to your so call technologically advanced island. Now allow us to explain the objective of our recent invasions.

The secondary objective was to welcome you to the new rule where ignoring the issues of your citizens will not go ignored by Anonymous. We advise you to stop feigning ignorance and serve the people. Any form of arrogant and ignorant statement from a person of position towards the people will not go ignored by Anonymous.

Have you forgotten who you work for? Traditionally the workers respect the boss. Let us stick to tradition.

But the primary objective of our invasion was to protest the implementation of the internet licensing framework by giving you a sneak peak of the state of your cyberspace if the ridiculous, communistic, oppressive and offensive framework gets implemented.

Did i mention the previous hacks was executed by a single Anonymous member? Now close your eyes and imagine a legion of Anonymous unleashed upon your tiny little island and infrastructures. It will be like dipping yourselves into a pool of piranhas.

We have faced much larger and more secured corporations such as the F.B.I & the NSA. Do you think the I.D.A will be a problem for us?

After all, security is just an illusion against time and temporary ignorance.

So mark our words when we say that we Anonymous stand firm on our belief that no Government has the right to deprive their citizens the freedom of information. No one has the right to tell an individual what he can or cannot read or write.

This is a basic fundamental of democracy and we will use everything in our resources to protect it at all cost.

We demand you reconsider the regulations of your framework or we will be forced to go to war with you. For every single time you deprive a citizen his right to information, we will cost you financial loss by aggressive cyber intrusion. An intrusion your $130 million cyber security will not be able to stop.

After all how do you stop an idea?

You may be ambitious enough to try and stop us but remember, the people you are after are the people you depend on:

we cook your meals, we haul your trash, we teach your children, we pay your high salaries, we feed your families, we guard you while you sleep!

It is not wise to piss us off.

And finally we call upon our fellow Singaporean brothers and sisters to join our protest by dressing fully in black & red on the 5th of November to paint your streets with the colors that represent the current Singaporeans emotion.

We urge you to black out your FB profile picture for a day along with the status message:

I am a Singaporean and i had enough of being oppressed! I want my freedom back!!

Anonymous will be making a virtual protest by your side.

Let us demonstrate our frustrations in organized unseen unity that may live a thousand years. This action might not make a political change but it is the first step towards the mental conditioning needed to achieve our goals.

Remember, remember. The fifth of November.

We are anonymous, we are legion.
We do not forgive, we do not forget.
Expect Us!
