Not Using Explorer? Off To Jail With You!

The BBC reported a hack attempt on the tsunami relief website with the hacker getting a visit from the Met who didn't bother knocking on their way in. Dirty hacking twunts.

Except the 'hack' seems to have been making a donation to the fund with a 'non standard' browser - in this case lynx. That'll teach those pesky linuses and blind people. And if you are wondering what a linus is you'll have to wait until I find the link on NewLinks.

Note to self: We really need a hack icon.

Someone really, really needs to get fired for this.

Absolutely - it is the shittest case of knaa nowt admin - evar!

The user agent would presumably have been listed as Lynx. FFS even if you hadn't heard of it how hard would it have been to google for it before calling the police?

Ill have a go at a hack icon tonight.
Any ideas?

mmChronic said...

Erm.. maybe an RMS one like the one in the edited post ;)

But feel free to stick another one in - we could do with a hack category as well as hacker. I reckon any clip from any hacky film or maybe Lizzie Borden would do. :)

Merg said...

I will personally eradicate anyone who uses an RMS icon from this point onwards.

This is not a joke. This is not an idle threat.

You have been warned.

mmChronic said...

I'm off to look for a hack story.

Yay - there's a fight on at my house tonight! ;)

Merg said...

Do you really want to have to look at that ugly fscker from now til the end of NL?

Not to mention, he's full of it.

BTW, he says YOUR job is immoral ;)

mmChronic said...

Hey I'm immoral never mind my fscking job! ;)

Merg said...

Then you're gonna burn in hey-ull.

I'll bring the sausages.
