So it seems we have our "example". I knew it wouldn't be long, actually surprised it took this much time. He will get the book thrown at him with whatever little evidence they can find....

However, what he is doing IS illegal.

This is breaking news, so no major updates.

If I'm correct, he showed it publicly on a show called "De Wereld Draait Door" yesterday.

Where is JUSTICE?

What happened to the rule of law???

Sadly abused and corrupted, none the less by the elected whom had claimed to protect their own citizens, but now had been proven to act on behalf of Corporations!

The attack on the biz HAD NOT BEEN THE WORK OF ANY ONE INDIVIDUAL, but by the MANY. Why target and persecute just one person alone? Should the elected authorities be proud of what they had despicably done?

May they built enough cages to fed and house the many angered citizens around the world with corporations at large. A sad day had occurred to humanity....

Dutch police arrest 16-year-old in connection with Mastercard, Paypal website attacks The Associated Press AMSTERDAM - Dutch prosecutors say they have arrested a 16-year-old boy suspected of involvement in digital attacks that made it difficult to access several prominent financial payment websites earlier this week. In a statement, the national prosecutors' office says the youth is believed to have participated in attacks by WikiLeaks supporters on websites "including MasterCard and Paypal, among others." The statement Thursday said the youth was arrested in The Hague, Netherlands. His name was not released. It was not clear whether he was believed to have played an important role in the attacks, which flooded the websites with traffic.

Why target and persecute just one person alone?


Because he was attacking without hiding his ip, doubt he even knew the risks, silly sheep need to find out what they are doing and what they are running.

I personaly salute this. Its exactly the sort of chin in the air stalwart behaviour exhibited by soldiers before the art of camo came about. They used to go to war in bright red jackets with white bands on them, crossed almost over the heart!
God bless this kid, and the movement!

What illegal he did? I did not find the article on CNN, just on RT and it was too unspecific. If I download page from http server it is legal but if I download same page many times it is illegal? If I say my friends to do the same (i.e. download that page for many times), em I criminal? May be this line is criminal offense:
while true; do wget -O /dev/null www.abovetopsecret.com...; done

There is an investigation right? Oh no... so Justice only goes one direction?

Well for a start I know that the majority of people who get involved in these hacks actualy make it hard, and in some cases VERY hard to track thier IP , by performing any one of the tricks you can do to mask them. I know also that in digital terms, not masking your IP or operating through a proxy or twelve, is pretty much suicidal, and shows a fanatical devotion to free speech and sticking it , most thoroughly to the man.
No , Im not a hacker myself, I have no technical ability with computers. But I know enough to know that this kid, for going into combat without armour, yet determined to mess up the enemies of truth , and damn the consequences, is just utterly beautiful, and I applaud him.

Wikileaks wasn't being attacked by a script kiddie who was swept up by the anon bandwagon with out knowing the risks.

No it shows a serious lack of knowledge.

Yeah I would imagine DDoS attacks are illegal in his country.


Denial-of-service attacks (a form of cyberterrorism) are considered violations of the IAB's Internet proper use policy, and also violate the acceptable use policies of virtually all Internet service providers. They also commonly constitute violations of the laws of individual nations.

You are right... even if this came from his IP, who is to say it is him... there are botnets with 30 million unsuspecting people being involved....

I could just as easily say, "This kid thought it would be cool to "hack" a website because some of his friends were talking about it. So he downloads a program, puts in the information that was fed to him via a website, then hits go" What a hero!
