"It Sucks to Be
2001 edition. Today we headline hacktivists who claim
to be fighting Osama bin Laden but actually attacked a country,
Iran, that is also fighting bin Laden.
A founder of the Internet, Vint Cerf, and Cyberangels
leader Parry Aftab have taped
a TV public service announcement begging hackers to stop committing
"hacktivist" computer crimes over Osama bin Laden.
The logo below belongs to the worst offenders of this crime spree:
the Dispatchers. They are even lamer than their logo makes them
What a bunch of idiots Dispatchers are
-- or are they actually in the pay of bin Laden? US Attorney
General John Ashcroft is calling for a new law that
would let him put computer criminals like the Dispatchers behind
bars for life. The Dispatchers are a perfect reason why. First
they attack a company that helps the US fight terrorism. Then
they put up a disgusting
attack on an Iranian government web site -- while the US is
in delicate negotiations with them about getting their help fighting
bin Laden, whom the government of Iran also hates.
Should we believe, as they claim, that
the Dispatchers are really just too f***ing stupid to
realize they are helping bin Laden? Or are they in the pay
of Osama bin Laden? Regardless of why they are aiding bin Laden,
they need to get shut down. Please, if you know anything about
the Dispatchers, help the FBI to bring them to justice by contacting
More carnival of wannabe computer
