I'd like to point out that script kiddies often commit acts that are a bit lacking in the common sense department. Remember that these are for the most part adolescents with raging hormones. Coolly logical thinking isn't their forte. > It makes far more sense that government and big business would > prefer that these mirror sites "go away" so that the exploits of > hackers are not exhibited or glorified. > > Mystakill was quite willing to believe this theory. > > "I would not put that past the US government," he said. > > "We have hundreds of .gov and .mil sites mirrored, if you where a > big security company or entire government would you want you > blunders archived for all time?" As to the assertion that the US government is systematically conducting denial of service attacks against mirror sites, get a life. As if they haven't got better things to do. Attrition still has hundreds of very embarrassing hacks sitting in their archives, and no one's trying to take them off the net. I think it is far more likely some small group of kiddiez are reveling in their ability to "control" these mirrors. Probably kiddiez who never succeeded in making a splash with their lame defacements ("this site hax0red by boogerbreth. Phere my skilZ"). Cheers, RGF Robert G.
