Comment The FBI has already apprehended the culprits (Score 1, Funny) 64

The FBI has apprehended the individuals responsible for the Pushdo botnet, but because the said individuals are minors, we have decided to file no charges if the said individuals apologized to everyone who had been negatively affected by the Pushdo botnet. Unfortunately, due to a typo, the said individuals issued a botnet command that is causing the botnet computers to keep trying to POST the following apology to the SSL port:

User-Agent: PushDo/1.0.1
Accept: */*

PS: For some telecommunications equipment I actually know how the intercept interface works. Because I used to administer them, but now I'm going away on a long vacation at an undisclosed location. Don't worry about me if I should never post here or anywhere else again, I'll probably be too busy to use the Internet.

There, fixed that for you.

Do you really think that the FBI is your greatest enemy online?


It is nice to think that you are enemy of the state nr 1 and that everybody cares about your secrets, but that's not the case. You should worry about phishers and other criminals, not about law enforcement.

I concur, you are absolutely right, Sir.

Comment Totally inaccurate and unture (Score 2, Funny) 689

For decades (1956-1971), the FBI under COINTELPRO focused on disrupting, marginalizing and neutralizing political dissidents, most notably the Black Panthers. More recently CENTCOM announced it would be engaging bloggers 'who are posting inaccurate or untrue information, as well as bloggers who are posting incomplete information.' In January 2009 the USAF released a flow-chart for 'counter-bloggers' to 'counter the people out there in the blogosphere who have negative opinions about the U.S. government and the Air Force.'"

The information above is totally inaccurate and untrue. You are advised to retract your statements and apologize, otherwise legal action will be brought against you. Thank you.

Have a nice day.
