    Re: MasterCard site is down, twitter, paypal, foxnews.com is next in hacker attacks.

    It looks like the fat and skinny war craft and dungeon and dragons nerds who live in their mother's basement are having their revenge. Hopefully the authorities catch them.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Ha ha ha. Such a boneheaded thing to say. That's like saying "Godddamnit I hate doctors for being smart!" or "The guy that made Facebook took time out of watching Star Trek to becoming a billionare because he is far smarter than I could ever hope to ever be!"

    Authorities won't catch anybody that overloads a server. Overloading a server isn't even a crime. That would be like one of the forum members here coming here when the bandwidth limit for DP was reached, whomever crapped the site out by using the bandwidth to load the site gets their IP searched, and then the owner of DP calls up their ISP to get the person that did it in trouble. The ISP would laugh at him until he hung up the phone.

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    The more I read the more I am on Wikileaks side. It is pretty damn obvious the guy was setup for the rape charge now. It is also pretty damn obvious these are things we the American people needed to know. I wish these hackers luck and hope they bring these sites to their knees.
    So on one hand, you think wikileaks is "journalism" site, so you must also think it is OK for journalists to hack into private businesses websites?

    How you can twist that into a reasonable position is beyond me.

    I know you're not speaking to me, but Wikileaks didn't hack anything. Someone else handed them the files, just like whistleblowers might hand them to journalists. I do not think Wikileaks is journalism, but I think they are an important step in this particular set of circumstances. WL has had journalists at numerous publications do the actual journalism, ... well unless and until he's goaded into releasing the poison pill.

    The information Wikileaks released were from documents that do not belong to them and weren't given to them by someone who had authority to do so.

    They are common thugs. Nothing more.

    Whistleblowers rarely have the authority to do so. You can't be that dense, are you?

    You can't be supporting this cast of socially misfitted thugs, can you?

    These are classified documents that released can put a great many people in danger and strain international relations in a way dangerous to to all.

    You've seen a few too many Julia Roberts movies, I suspect.

    There appear to be reports circulating that Wiki did experience several DDoS attacks prior to the release of the cables, and that subsequent attacks (originating in China) have also occurred.

    I don't support vigilanteism. Anonymous needs to stand down, but unfortunately, from what I know about them, that's highly unlikely.

    I can understand many Americans cheering them, though. We do love our Robin Hoods.
