Hacks and ‘bots’ – very old news
by Kismo Friday, Nov 30 2007, 9:09am
The FBI and other mental leper agencies have finally become aware of a very old hacking method (15 years would be close) of harnessing and mining info from private computers – good work dimwits, in relative terms 15 years in IT equals about 75 years in other industries! Kiddie hackers have been accruing ‘bots’ (short for robot) slave machines (zombies) for years, usually for childish pursuits like attacking each other’s systems (DDoS attacks) hacker wars, as they are known. Our servers were subjected to one of these mindless attacks 15 years ago – easily circumvented with professional expertise, which ‘intelligence’ and ‘security’ agencies lack, I might add!
Today, ‘kiddie’ hackers have been displaced by organised activists who write code to exploit known Operating Systems (usually Microsoft) for the purposes of MAKING VAST AMOUNTS of MONEY either by collecting sensitive data, banking details etc, or by selling highly sought after information/data to competing interests, which involves international espionage – we live in a global, borderless world remember! Authorities are losing this battle faster today than ever before – instead of quietly enlisting the services of hackers, which is difficult as most are avowed anarchists -- the authorities continue to utilise antiquated standover tactics of heavy penalties unless services are rendered. Blackmailed hackers intentionally relay information of agency intentions to their hacker networks – silly, stupid, Feds!
Russians, Russian Jews (Israelis) with a smattering of Oz, Kiwi, Chinese and German crews continue to reign supreme. One day the Feds will wake up to the fact that this is WAR – a war they are losing faster than they can type “wtf.”
I can only underestimate the amounts stolen from banks and other financial institutions; hundreds of millions per annum would be a conservative estimate. Banks and other institutions are haemorrhaging from their jugulars – including the major Caribbean banks of trad organised crime, which amuses us no end. [Ey, paisan, hombre, get fucked!]
Nuff sed at this stage; except down you go mother fuckas, watch those dollars and Euros flow!
Told you before, we own the wire, you tried to ensure we didn’t then discovered we did – how does it feel?
The world belongs to those who are able, always has, always will!
I almost forgot, only amateur hackers get caught; you can’t even see the pros – Uber 0, Uber 1
