Hackers hijacked Europe's carbon-trading website and replaced it with spoof page detailing flaws in cap and trade scheme.


Anti-carbon trading activists shut down the website of the European Climate Exchange (ECX), over the weekend, replacing the site with a spoof page lampooning the industry.

The website of the London-based carbon credit trading platform was hacked at close to midnight on Friday and showed the spoof homepage for around 22 hours. It then took technical staff another day to restore the official homepage.

Instead of its normal rolling ticker data listing bids for carbon credit futures, the ECX website blared: "Super promo – climate on sale: Guaranteed profit!"

My prayer-

Please Universe, please can we see more of this in the Universe. Can you please fix it so that greedy pathetic terrorist scum that think of themselves to be elite, can carry on being found out and the public made aware of their tyranny. Thank You for all you do.

If everyone can think about this at 11:10 for 2 minutes mornning and evening


This is why- wecreatethelove.ning.com...

It's just a website.. I don't think that praying for hackers shutting down websites does any change

Did you even read the blog?

The elite obviously think there's more to the 11:11 phenomenon.

If its good enough for them, it's good enough for us!

If all thought and all action is creative energy, what sort of world do you wanna create?

I would be interested to view to the hacked version of the page. I even see an embedded video in the screen capture of the spoof page in the article.

We need more of this type stuff from the h4x0rz.

Much love.

Good on them! I'm glad at least some people have enough of a mind of their own to not be fooled by the AGW lies.

That's actually a constructive form of "hacktivism". Instead of just "taking it down" they conveyed their protest message to the core of the website's users. VERY effective in planting that seed of thought in their minds.

Sure you can protest in the streets, but the people you want the message to reach are not going to see your protest. Not to mention, thanks to cops acting as agent provocateurs so frequently now, it's difficult to hold a peaceful protest anymore.

This website hacking is the most effective reaction that the cops can't control. Unless of course, the cops start false flag hacking websites now to make the hackers look bad....

I would bet my last nickel it was the Russians.

The former KGB has a hacker team..actually a pretend university town filled with hackers.

They were the ones that hacked the IPCC, hacked all of the Republic of Georgia's gov sites prior to invasion etc.

They are for sale most times, but when the Socviets aren't selling the service they are usually doing the Govs bidding.

I'll google around and see if the hack has been traced yet...but I am betting it was them.

Its Cyber-War these days.

Off topic: remember when Israel bombed Syria's purported nuclear site last year? I read an article describing how an Israeli internet team hacked into Syrian defense computers...so when the Israeli jets flew in to bomb the site, all the radar screens showed no threats or planes.

Hacking is scary stuff these days.

EDIT TO ADD: I stand Corrected!!

The hack was apparently by Decocidio #ϴ, a sub group of Earth First!!

Hell yeah for the hackers. I want to see more of this too!! And I want to see more people doing more in "real life" too.

I'm tired of constantly being offended by all the disgusting things our leaders are doing to our world. Do you really want the rest of your lives to be like this, or worse?

To quote a line from Dixie, UP!!! lest WORSE THAN DEATH befalls you!

Here's a link to the spoofed page:

nassibou.atspace.org...

Print it and pass it around to your coworkers and friends, as well as at public places.

I disagree completely, every little event like this does not help, it just validates the Government's argument that the net must be regulated. Though I agree carbon credits are nothing more than a money making scheme, what purpose did this really accomplish? It's a waste of ability, and its a small time prank at best. If you have the ability to replace another's website with a spoof page, than why not hack into the company's computer and find evidence that carbon credits are a big fraud and another way to make money, then post THAT for everyone to see. Every little event like THAT would help, this event is nothing more than a nuisance and gives the Government every reason to restrict the internet.
