Twitter & Facebook Taken Offline By DDoS Attacks

Both Facebook and Twitter were hit with pretty severe DDoS attacks rendering them useless and unavailable to the majority of users.

Hospital Hacker GhostExodus Owns Himself – Arrested

This story actually gave me a lot of LULZ, how stupid can you be seriously? Man this guy made so many mistakes for someone so paranoid (he had a web cam setup outside his appartment door so he could see who was coming).. But then he exposed his IP address on IRC, posted his face […]

Dshocker AKA Aush0k Hacker Pleads Guilty to Computer Felonies

Another teen hacker in the news, this guy looks like he has some formidable skills though with the list of crimes he’s perpetrated. He’s pleaded guilty though, so he should get a reduced sentence and he’s still classified as a juvenile offender being only 17 – so that works in his favour too. A juvenile […]
