Anonymous survival guide

Anonymous has released a Survival Guide for Citizens in a Revolution (PDF), which is well worth a read. Although focused on what to do in the event of a violent uprising, the document is relevant for any disaster like emergency situation.

This Guide is for civilians who feel they are about to be caught up in a violent uprising or revolution to overthrow the oppressive government of their country. Although a revolution in favor of the people is a joyful thing when seen from the outside, it can be a bloody mess for those inside it.
This guide will give you some basic ideas and tips for how you and your friends/neighbors/family can stay safe in the violent turmoil around you. It is not a ready-made recipe, but it contains general survival tactics and strategies.

This release follows what is one of groups best hacking escapades in which they compromised the security of the international cyber-security think-tank Stratfor. Although the Texas based company denies it, it's likely that Anonymous exposed the personal and financial details of thousands of the firm’s clients.

Anonymous posted the firms "private" client list online with some customers reporting that their credit cards were used to donate to charity. This is despite the FBI arresting 16 people in July, suspected of hacking PayPal on behalf of the amorphous group.
