Every month or so I check out the Aussie Organic Gardening Blog to see what I could be planting this month (if I had the time) :S
So I click my bookmark this morning only to find a bunch of useless, waste of space/food/air hackers has erased the whole site and put up a vile evil image as their tag.
If you ever had need to question the future of humanity, this is where we’re headed. On one hand you have a person dedicated to growing healthy natural food and sharing their knowledge with the wider community. On the other hand you have a group of people who not only don’t contribute anything useful to the world, they actively seek to destroy the hard work done by others for nothing except the pleasure that their destruction wreaks.
It’s interesting to note that this group of hackers come from Kuwait; a country that imports the vast majority of their food (a lot of it from Australia), and their only real economic foundation comes from a fossil fuel (oil) that is rapidly depleting.
I’d be curious to see what these hackers do when the Kuwait economy finally crashes. Going by their tag, they’ll probably spend a few months eating each other.

That’s very upsetting. 🙁March 19, 2011 at 2:12 pm #492957
That is just awful. Perhaps they should spend less time hacking and more time learning about organic gardening and they won’t have to eat each other when the oil runs dry.March 19, 2011 at 2:35 pm #492958
👿 I hate them, got them on another site and it makes you so :angry: . These guys were from Asia somewhere and left some really nasty messages 👿March 19, 2011 at 3:03 pm #492959
They’re script kiddies. They download hacking toolkits off the internet and its just all automatic. No skill. No talent. Just let the tool run and do as much damage as possible. Its the cyber equivalent of scrawling your name on walls using permanent markers. They don’t even have the talent to use spraypaint and make it look fancy.
It does mean though that the site that was hacked didn’t have its latest security patches installed. Those tools target known vulnerabilities so its important to install security patches as soon as they are released.
Edit – looks like the gardening mob are restoring from backup now. Site is back up but no content there yet. They’ll have it back in an hour or two.March 19, 2011 at 4:43 pm #492960
Lets hope they do – eat each other that is.March 19, 2011 at 8:35 pm #492961

You owe me a new keyboard. I just snorted coffee through my nose at that comment.
Made my day :laugh:

In fact they’re called “crackers” not hackers, giving hackers a bad name.March 20, 2011 at 8:17 pm #492964
One thing ‘old farts’ like me can’t figure is why do they bother? What do they get out of it? Mind you, thinking back, my own youth wasn’t blameless. I confess to ‘scrumping’ fruit from orchards on the way home from school and I did once ‘hack’ into the girls’ changing rooms with an ingeniously designed system of mirrors and prisms. But this was purely scientific, not prurient – I was simply increasing my anatomical knowledge.March 20, 2011 at 9:08 pm #492965

Well I for one am glad I use a voice activated computer setup because I have now snorted my second cup of coffee over my last keyboard – the other is still drying :laugh:

These people make me really mad.
They try to hack their way through my website daily.
I see them attack forums regularly and I think, surely you can do better with your time…….

The way I see it Wazza, you weren’t hacking, by peering through some kind of opening, a crack or space, even with mirrors, therefore, you must have been cracking! 😉
