Security Best Practices, Breaking News, & Updates
I heard this interesting account on Paul Harvey's news summary a couple of days ago SUMMARY: A hacker was trying to get back at a forum moderator after being kicked out for misbehaving. He needed the IP address to enter into his hack-tool, so the forum moderator cooperated and gave him an IP# -- the hacker's own IP address ... He entered the IP# in his hacking software ... He then disappeared off the Internet and hasn't been heard from since ... Darwin Award goes to a young Hacker http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?date=2005-04-29 Darwin Was Right. For those who don't hang out on Slashdot, there is a very amusing story going around about a young hacker who tried to raid an opponent's computer after being kicked out of a chat channel. Even Paul Harvey mentioned it today in his radio show. Note -- Due to inappropriate language, the actual detailed account wasn't shared. It can be found in the ISC link above.
