back to article Wikileaks DDoSser 'Jester' in phantom cop raid tomfoolery

The hacker suspected of involvement in the first denial of service attacks against Wikileaks has disowned blog posts that reported a raid on him by local police as the work of an imposter. A patriot-hacker called The Jester, who previously used an XerXeS application layer attack tool he developed to assault jihadist sites, …

    I almost agree with cDc

    Except that I'd use 'oxygen' to replace one word in the following quote:

    " ...anyone who spells their nick with numbers in an effort to look 'leet' deserves to have their computer confiscated"

    It's not leet it's "1337" where were you guys in '97 ?

    Would you be an imposter ?

    Is it just me, or is it a bit stupid (daft, dangerous) to pretend to be The Jester, someone who is very likely to be visited in the middle of the night by operatives in balaclavas.

    Or do they just send an unmaned Predator these days?

      Hah

      Errm, I fink you'd better read the article again.

      'A patriot-hacker called The Jester, who previously used an XerXeS application layer attack tool he developed to assault jihadist sites', add to this the fact that he's ddos'ing Wikileaks and the Raptor is more likely to be bringing flowers and the balaclava's brigade his latest paycheck!

    So OxBlood reckons that anyone who spells their name in numbers ought to have their computer confiscated? Is that OxBlood of 0xB100D, or 725005?

    But surely only someone who is super 1337

    would know to spell their nick with numbers in an effort to make L337s think he wasn't l33t!

        Oh dear!

        I actually made an assembly program to decode that last message. I'm actually amazed that I haven't lost my 0xDEADBEEFCAFE skills, and that I managed to do the whole thing in 15 minutes.

        I should probably get a low level programming job.

    Would be well desserved

    Also, what the heck with that "patriot-hacker" thing? What next, "freedom fighter"? "Galactic Hero of Freedom-and-Bravery Liberation"? An obnoxious script-kiddie is an obnoxious script-kiddie is an obnoxious script-kiddie. The underlying "ideology" is irrelevant.

      A script kiddie? Probably not

      According to the article, he used software he developed

        Sure

        >According to the article, he used software he developed

        According to the article and other sources he used a combination of pre-made scripts. As he always do. Script. Kiddie.

    the hackers have turned on each other

    When the war starts, will it be fought entirely online in Tron-like arenas, where only the 1337357 will survive?

    tbh this guy sounds perhaps a little misguided. DDoSing Assange's leaky discharge does not win him any brownie points, except with Sarah Palin. But then, North Korea win brownie points with her too.

    I'm not taking Wikileaks' side, it just seems a tad desperate to DDoS a site that is leaking embarrassing secrets. Hasn't he looked at it at all? It is politically inconvenient, yes, but the whole "putting soldiers lives at risk" is built on bullshit.

    If the US gov were concerned about soldier's lives, they wouldn't be invading countries with them.

    Does he think he's doing his country a favour by taking this action?

    Patriot hacker is an interesting term. Is he on US.gov's payroll or their wanted list?

    They do seem to take hacking* rather seriously - just ask Gary Mckinnon.

    *which seems to mean pretty much anything involving a computer and an internet connection these days. If they don't want it to be seen, why put it on the fscking internet!?

    Beer because I think I need one now :)
