Hope the good boys (police) catch these criminal hackers soon.
Genjix's post is full of win! Putting parenthesis around police totally made me ROFL!
As for DDoS being wrong, I disagree. People are simply exploiting an inherent weakness of internet protocol, namely that you can send packets for free, creating a tragedy of the commons situation. Same thing for spam. The more often this happens, there more motivation there will be to fix the internet. Bitcoin could even play a role in this.
This is an excellent point! TANSTAAFL. I envision a future where a micropayment system, such as bitcoin, could be used to charge for bandwidth on a bit-per-bit basis. And ideally, individuals would own their own networks routers, servers, and cables, so that they wouldn't have to send all their traffic through a hierarchical ISP and store their data on some distant server or corporate-owned cloud.
DDoS is illegal as it creates disturbance in normal functioning of a website .But protests on streets, strikes they also disrupt normal functioning of institutions .
I think DDoS is a new form of protest in the domain of internet.
Fascinating...never thought of DDoS like that. Indeed, it is very similar to a street protest determined to disrupt normal functioning of institutions. People who call for making DDoS attacks illegal should analogously call for making street protests (including critical mass) illegal.
