LOIC Alternative RefRef Ready In Time for #OccupyWallStreet
By on September 16th, 2011

We have all heard about the Low Orbit Ion Cannon a deceptively powerful, yet quite simple tool for bombarding a server with meaningless data until all its resources are used to answer the bombarding queries instead of serving pages, commonly known as a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Now, Anonymous has developed its own DoS tool, calling it RefRef.

RefRef was developed to assist the setup of #OccupyWallStreet, that will begin September 17, at noon at the famous financial district of New York City. Peaceful protesters will set up tents, kitchens and peaceful barricades and occupy the entire district for a few months.

On September 17, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices.

(This one simple demand is still under vote, with Revoke Corporate Personhoodleading)

The expected number of campers is around 20,000. However, considering a similar protest that was done earlier at the same venue where protesters were spurned away by the police, only tomorrow will tell us what the real number of protesters there will be.

RefRef will be released at noon on September 17th along with the start of #OccupyWallStreet.
