Forwarded from: dont <dontat_private> Ok, this kinda stuff just cracks me up when I read it, since I am a retired USAF officer. I wonder if these folks have really thought this through? Do they really want to become "combatants" and therefore be subjected to an entirely different set of rules of engagement? While I certainly would not advocate this, I would most likely fall out of my chair laughing the day I read about a Ranger raid or bombing run on one of their houses. Sorry, back to reality... but thanks for the chuckles on this one! don On Mon, 22 Oct 2001, InfoSec News wrote: > A Pakistani hacking group has defaced a Web server operated by the > U.S. government and threatened to hit American and British > military sites unless its demands are met. > > A Web server operated by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric > Administration (NOAA) was attacked this morning by a group known > as GForce Pakistan, according to records at Alldas, a Web site > defacement archive. > > The attackers replaced the site's homepage with their own, which > bore the title "GForce Strikes Back" and contained a 350-word text > message.
