Anonymous and the Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC) are mentioned in a new NSA document from the Snowden trove published by Der Spiegel. LOIC is software that has been used in the past by the hacktivist collective Anonymous to disable target websites through DDoS attacks. In one instance on March 6, 2011, the document notes, NSA’s TUTELAGE program was able to recognize specific content strings generated by LOIC, in this case “Sweet_dreams_from_AnonOPs,” and block the IP addresses being used to conduct a denial of service attack against DoD machines.
