Watergate by the Left
Via Relapsed Catholic, this alarming tale of illegal dirty tricks and theft at Protest Warrier is astonishing not only because PW was able to discover what was being done to its site and users info, but the lengths at which the loony Left will go to conspire in evil doing.
In January 2005, Jeremy Hammond and the hacker group collectively known as the "Internet Liberation Front" gained illegal access to the ProtestWarrior server. Thousands of customer credit card numbers were then stolen for the purpose of making millions of dollars in donations to various leftwing organizations. In early February, ProtestWarrior discovered the illegal breach and the identity of the criminals responsible.
Upon discovering the hack, we immediately began collecting information on the breach and managed to penetrate Jeremy's inner circle. We then collected evidence that more than 5,000 credit card numbers had been stolen by Jeremy and the "Internet Liberation Front" and that they were planning on doing the following:
*charge hundreds of dollars per stolen credit card number as donations to various left-wing organizations by using an automated donation submission script
*send the entire ProtestWarrior HQ database (complete with usernames, passwords, and operation details) to left-wing groups hostile to ProtestWarrior (including the entire contents of our mail server)
*upload all credit card numbers and other sensitive customer information to hundreds of anarchist and left-wing sites (specifically Indymedia) as a downloadable zip file
*anonymously send press releases and material to thousands of media contacts to boast of the malicious hack and the millions of dollars defrauded, and to publish any and all sensitive information regarding the ProtestWarrior organization
*erase the entire PW server
*launch simultaneous attacks on other conservative sites
I hope these punks see some serious jail time in an unpleasant Federal Pen. Let them mix with the ones who want new "bitches" and let them see the world where appeasement and cowardice is not rewarded.
Of course, all internet uzers are vulnerable to various kinds of dirty tricks. C'mon Justice Dept. Send a message and quit coddling these kinds of people.
