Submission + - Second Life bugs led to John Edwards attack

destinyland writes: "This article identified the group who attacked John Edwards' virtual headquarters in Second Life. Apparently they've been attacking the service since last 2006, with Linden Labs unable to successfully stop them. (Though the group believes Linden Labs actually identified their hardware.) It's an interesting example of communities collididing. The group claims to have successfully designed "unbanning" tools, argue that they're protesting Linden's restrictive in-world guidelines, and insist that their attacks weren't specifically directed against John Edwards. But their past "attacks" have involved "grey goo" server flooding with an army of Nintendo's Mario — which they then uploaded the footage to YouTube as a music video."

A company is known by the men it keeps.
