Fascists are hacking Internet routers.
24 Oct 2004
Probably the Protest Warriors.
The websites that NYC IndyMedia has been redirected to are listed below:

http://rightwingextremist.net/
http://scaryjohnkerry.com/
http://stolenhonor.com/
http://www.georgebush.com/

There are two things about this that are important.

(1) The fascists are not doing this to convince us to vote for Bush, for they know we will not vote for Bush. They are doing it to show us that they can act with impunity while we cannot (that is, that the state supports their criminal activity).

(2) I do not believe they hacked NYC IMC. I believe they have access to routers. This means that criminal activity is happening within our ISPs or on the Internet's backbone itself.

This work is in the public domain

Internet routers not at fault

Actually it was just XSS ( http://www.cgisecurity.com/articles/xss-faq.shtml ) which barely qualifies as "hacking". No state support required for this sort of obnoxiousness.
I stand corrected, but it is still obnoxious.

When it was breaking news it was hidden......

Oh, just a small comment, BOSTON IMC is just as vunerable to the same immature and childish prank but has Boston IMC suffered?

Nope!

(not yet.............)
Silly Commie!

Whenever someone hysterically labels some people "Fascists" - without any evidence whatsoever that the people in question support stringent socio-economic controls, centralized control of private enterprise, dictatorial government or repression of all opposition - and usually accompanies his statement with wild, foaming-at-the-mouth accusations such as...

"The Fascists (probably the Protest Warriors) are hacking Internet routers and redirecting our Internet traffic to their websites!"

...without any evidence whatsoever that the people in question are indeed culpable, we can be assured that he is, in all likelihood, a fanatical communist lunatic.
Proud to be an anarcho-communist.

On the other hand, posting under the moniker "Your Moral and Intellectual Superior" is entirely consistent with fascist delusions of belonging to a "master race".
