security is futile and you will be owned!

Excuse me, I believe you mean to say "you will be pwnd!

or maybe: "all your security are belong to us" or something.

What appears to be DkD(||'s website is still running and contains links to a variety of pro-Palestinian organisations claimed to be sponsors, not least Fateh, Hamas and the Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade - although one link to jihadonline.org appears to have been usurped by pro-US hackers and now diverts to a pro-US site.

Other material posted by DkD(|| said that while his attacks are politically motivated, he is against terrorism and intends his attacks to maximise attention to the Palestinian cause with the minimum of damage.


Can you spot the contradiction?

Headline is dumb. The hackers are hardly going to promote US hatred on a US site.
 
2003-08-13 5:57:28 AM  
Well, that makes perfect sense.
 
2003-08-13 6:02:33 AM  
well, it wasn't very eloquently put but they had the right message

Oh I see - So next time I spray paint 'Fook the fookin Pigz' onto a wall it should be onto the wall of a Garda (police) station.

What better place?

In any case, Australia is on the same hitlist as the US, UK and others; aka "the Coalition".

I agree fully. When you're doing something stupid, it's always easier to do it close to home.

Like those asshats who protest by rioting and looting/torching their own neighborhoods. Brilliant!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna take a Sharpie and draw "Austrailia Sucks HAHAHA" on my wall. It's a powerful form of protest, and I'm sure it'll really piss off the aussies.

First they are trying to affect Australia's profoundly insipid colonial attachment to Great Brittain and the US not our own ego centric self love, cretin.

Second the activist recently arrested in france's handle is DkD not DkD(II the II is as in "to admin" addressing the admin, slut.

Call it the axis of good, it just makes it easier to understand a manichean world order.

JohnnyontheSpot : in a violent conflict the symbols of the combatants are not the civilians losing life, limb, property and rights but those who inflict the most spectacle. If we won't bother to stop masterbating to american idol for the debasement of an entire country what extremes might the desperate try next to win our admitedly shortened attention spans? Perhaps we could take some responsability for arming sheilding and funding their attackers instead of claiming mass ignorance.
 
2003-08-13 7:52:28 AM  
Perhaps the haxors were Aussie haxors who disagree strongly with John Howard's constant and continual arse-licking of GW Bush...

But then again, maybe they're just lamerz.

Call it the axis of good, it just makes it easier to understand a manichean world order.

It has less to do with current events than with long standing geopolitical shifting. Simply put Australia has nearly outgrown its colonial phase as America did around the turn of the century and is poised to start becoming a heavy contender for pacific rim economic influences aimed at staking out its share as the peek oil crisis looms. Brittain and America are trying to keep it in a subserviant role until Iraq/Iran/Saudi Arabia are portioned out and we focus on containing China through the escalation on the Korean peninsula.

Don't feel bad, our reliance on oligarchy to pass as a sembalance of government has severely retarded our political awareness but it wouldn't hurt to turn the fox news off and try to form some of your own opinions once in a while.

tisack, referring to the US, the UK and Australia as the axis of good is about the funniest thing I've read all day

OMG, how $Rand{PUNK_ELITE_KEWL}! By the sound of it I'm guessing they used a software expoit automated by a script they didn't even write. This is what happens when Battle.NETers take up politics. I bet them Korean fags who always steal your phat loot are also on the hitlist for being gay homosexuals?

From Yesterday:

Naivete and narcissism: What makes a liberal?
Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservative.

From this article:

"DEFACED BY The Ghost Boys UssA sux! Boycott its products! NATO sux! greetz to DkD(|| admin: security is futile and you will be owned!."

hmmmmm.
 
2003-08-13 10:23:02 AM  
What are you tyring to say Cracker_monkey? Cuz the conclusion I draw from all of that is: "stupid, naive and narcissistic people (on computers, here) are stupid, naive and narcissistic."

I'm having problems extrapolating from teen angst amongst idiots to some greater (conservative/liberal) agenda. They're suXorz hAxOrz indeed.

"Both groups appear to favour using a widely documented flaw in Windows Server 2000, although what method they used this time is still being assessed."

You mean there are flaws in Windows 2000? Who would of thought that?

/RPC/DCOM/ Only idiots deface websites. Beware of what you don't see!!

Man that's just trying a little to hard to sound intelligent.

OK that was not the best hacker text I could write, but still, if france want to bash us over this Israeli-Palistinian thing, that we really don't give a damn about anymore, while at the same time beat up our Aussie buddies then we got a little present for them that is going to be hard to return.

Maybe whe that Blaster Worm hits their computers in a couple of days, we won't have to hear any of their BS because they will be offine for the rest of the year.

That concept is so pleasurable that it borders on the erotic.

Good l0rd. If you're going to deface a foreign website, can't you at least learn to farking spell?
And the reason they targetted DCITA wasn't because they had anything against the Australian government, they're just skill-less script kiddies who couldn't make it past any real security. No one expected a site like DCITA to be hacked like this, so no wonder it wasn't well protected. If they want to act all uber-1337 they need to target something a bit more well defended, say, a DoD or FBI website.
Then I'll be impressed.
Dumbass ignorant punks.

Woooooooow - they hit the Greater Murray Area Health Service.... I'm in abject awe, what an amazing display of 1337ness *swoon*
Gimme a farking break, pathetic little tools, what are they? 12 years old?

I like how they talk about the other "hacker"::laughs:: that confessed to defacing 70 websites... and how he was let go becuase hacking has very little penalty under law, yet he is now BANNED FROM THE INTERNET. I seriously and honestly belive that needs to happen more often. you know, to the asshats out there.

I just thought it was funny how they said it wasnt a big crime over there and his punishment is being banned from using the internet. That would freaking kill me I think if I were banned from the internet. Now I'm wondering how many days/months/years I would be willing to spend in jail, over being banned from the net...... it really makes you think.
