Submission + - Swedish Hackerspace raided by the police (forskningsavd.se) 4

intedinmamma writes: At 20.45 on Saturday the 28th of November the police raided the social centre Utkanten in Malmö, where the hackerspace Forskningsavdelningen is housed. Twenty officers in full riot gear and ski masks broke into the space, using crowbars. The official reason for the raid was to do a “pub check” because of the suspicion that there was illegal selling of alcohol going on at a punk concert. After the raid the cops confiscated a lot of stuff, being indiscriminate as to whose effects were removed. A lot of equipment from Forskningsavdelningen were taken, and also some personal belongings, even though the hackerspace was unaffiliated with the group arranging the concert downstairs.

Submission + - Conficker botnet = global philanthropy tool?

An anonymous reader writes: Most assume that the creators of the Conficker botnet have evil, mean, and nasty intentions, and they just might. If you had control of the Conficker bots, estimated at 3,000,000+ hosts... Then what philanthropic acts, for the good of all humanity, would you have the botnet perform?
