Anonymous Announces Anonymous-OS (Their Own OS) And DuckDuckGo (Their Search Engine)

Posted on Mar 15 2012 - 5:18am by Editorial Staff

The hacker group Anonymous has just released its own operating system – yes I just mentioned operating system name Anonymous-OS and its default search engine name as DuckDuckGo. The OS was created under Ubuntu 11.10 and uses Mate desktop. A Tumblr blog was set up to provide updates on all the developments and it’s About page reveals more about what the OS is all of about.

DuckDuckGo’s official statement on tracking:

DuckDuckGo does not store any personal information, e.g. IP addresses or user agents: see our privacy policy for details.  We also have an encrypted (SSL) version, two non-JS versions (HTML & lite), aTor hidden service (about), several privacy settings (including POST & RefControl), and we allow you to use URL parameters instead of cookies to store settings.

We’ve tried to explain the consequences of tracking as it applies to search results in our and infographics.

The interesting part the blog notes that the operating system should not be used to “destroy any web page”. The warning written says that:

If you attack to any web page, might end up in jail because is a crime in most countries!

*** The user has total responsibility for any illegal act. ***
