Sadly, this is why FEAR is so rampant, Why Oprah believes 9,000 Penises are coming for the children. Fear of what you can not understand... rendered impotent of words or true thought in the face of something you can not comprehend
You See, it would be nice to think that, the 15 year old face of what is starting to happen is it's true face and this is obviously what you think when you say the words you just said.
But I do not live with my Mother, My mother died many years ago
I Live in the wealthiest neighborhood in my city, I started my first computer business when I was 12, John McCain keeps an Apartment around the corner from me.
I am what Anonymous grows up to be.
Like it or not, it already is a Technocracy, these...children know that "they run this" I knew it when I was that age too...
It is in the end a funny thing the way power transfers, handed to people who share no common bond, simply because they are fit for the job.
This is the Joy of this generational conflict... The Silent generation knows thier children were misfits, the real power is being handed to us, being shot right over thier greedy, selfish self absorbed children and to thier grand children. Old men in corridors of power know who can be trusted with power, who will know what to do with it
the Truth, so help me g-d, I sit and have my cocktails with these men, I am anonymous, in a way, even in life, they after all achieved greatness by having secret identities and secret organizations too.
Why do you suppose Oprah rants about Anonymous and Palin remained quiet? Perhaps Respect for playing the game?
A few days ago, someone going by the name of “Rubico” gloated on 4chan.org that he managed to hack into Sarah Palin’s Yahoo account. He forced a password reset by answering questions about Palin’s birthdate, zip code and where she met her spouse, Wasilla High School. Of course, by being the Republican candidate for Vice President, this information is all very easily found on the Internet. After answering the questions, Rubico reset the password to “popcorn” and read through Palin’s emails.
And it seems he was pretty thorough, saying he read, “ALL OF THEM” on the boards. He even posted up screenshots of the Yahoo email page, complete with the full URL (we’ll talk about that later). Rubico says he didn’t find anything incriminating and the emails were actually fairly mundane family pictures and correspondence. But his jubilation turned into horror as he realized that he didn’t take proper precautions in covering his tracks.
Rubico used a proxy server that shields the source IP address from website logging scripts. While this sounds great, Rubico posted, “Yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this sh** ever got to the FBI I was FU****”
In his gloating, Rubico posted up screenshots of the Yahoo account complete with the full URL which included the proxy server url (ctunnel.com) appended with a unique identifier. For example, we used ctunnel.com to surf to YouTube and the URL reads - ctunnel.com... So it doesn’t take a genius to go through the logs and match up the ID to the appropriate IP address and BAM, you got the hacker.
But aren’t proxy servers supposed to anonymize your information? Yes and no. Dan Goodin over at The Register talked to Gabriel Ramuglia, the owner of the ctunnel.com proxy server that Rubico allegedly used. Ramuglia is upset about the ordeal because his service was never meant to be used for illegal activies and says Rubico definitely broke his site’s terms of service. Ramuglia added that every incoming IP address is logged with the time and destination website.
Ramuglia told Goodin that he hasn’t a chance yet to examine his logs, but added that there is a good chance that it will lead to the hacker. Since the interview, he’s received a call from the Anchorage Alaska FBI field office and agents there are highly suggesting that he not lose the logs.
As you can expect, the Yahoo account has been frozen and all the incriminating forum posts on 4chan.org have been deleted. But this didn’t stop Wired.com from printing some of the posts. Don’t you just love it when hackers brag about the “leet” skills?
