Analysis by Twente Univ found the source of attack is traceable due to
LoIC, a tool used by the hacktivist does not employ security/anonymizer:
Binary in sourceforge:
Another version derived from LOIC called LOIQ (maybe since it's written in QT) work right away on Linux, and you don't have to install Mono stuff.
LOIQ however, named as "server stress test"
In this case basically, I believe no botnet whatsoever involved, the so called "hacktivist" merely ran this tool right away, without anonimizer and stuffs.
