Quick Q for you guys and its a just out of curiosity. In theory and only theory is it possible to bring MySpace down off the net. As in hacking/cracking it so it no longer functions. Again I'm not a hacker just want to maybe get some insite from smarter computer people then myself lol -thank you

I'm sure the people here would love to leave federally incriminating information like that right here in the open.

I think it's possible.

But why would I shut it down if I had the ability to hack it?

I'd rather use this opportunity to go into private profiles and look at hot chicks.

Nah you're talking about a DoS attack (Denial of Service) and I'm pretty sure their servers are good enough to block that.

Anyway, if I knew how I'd have done it a long time ago

DDOS or BotNet attacks will do.

You could do it, but it would require extensive knowledge of whatever software they use for their severs (most likely MySQL, but I don't know). That said the use several zombie proxies would be required, because Uncle Sam will not be pleased by your efforts.

Worst. Idea. Ever. If you do accomplish it, you do realize it will most likely be back up in a couple days right?
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

No. To 'destroy' a website you would have to somehow get access to their servers and destroy all the data. Not that it's even feasible at that point, but you'd also have to find a way to stop the server's native restore process. I can't think of any way to do that short of physically destroying the ahrd drives. However, even if you were somehow able to achieve the above you'd then have to locate all the external backups that a large site such as myspace undoubtedly has.

Even then, Tom could just remake the site.

You don't need to destroy their data to stop people from accessing them. DDOS or BotNet attacks will flood their bandwidth and prevent anyone from accessing their information.

1 - Insight.

2 - No. Just no. UG is NOT the place to be discussing damage to other sites.

3 - This fact should be clear enough in the rules. The ONLY reason I'm not reporting this thread is out of respect for someone of your long standing with UG.

Do yourself a favor and delete this thread before a Mod sees it and issues a warning and/or ban to you and anyone else foolish enough to begin discussing such actions.

Good luck,
SYK

Great to see you back, my friend.

Why do you want to do this? Yes I understand, it's pretty much useless. You can easily talk with friend on the phone or with text messaging but there's no real reason. Yes, it is a huge spot for sexual predators but if the dumb chicks today are still so ****ing stupid that they would actually go meet somebody in person that they don't know anything about and think is a 14 year old girl that suspiciously has everything in common with them completely deserve it. I mean after all of the **** you here on the news like, "Fourteen year old girl rapped by Myspace friend," and, "Myspace strikes again!!," you would think that they retards would get that you don't meet anybody, I mean anybody who you don't know. In fact, don't even except their friend request if you don't know who the hell they are. I'm honestly never seen anything more stupid than a girl who would actually take the risk of making a new friend or meeting a new friend (for the slow ones I'm talking about a penis). And trust me on this one, I've seen many stupid things such as... Gibson's new self tuning guitar, using real food for decoration, and I'm not complaining, girls who wear the tight little shorts that have statements such as, sexy, angel, cutey, bitch, and my all time favorite, my ass. I'm mean honestly, You just asking for a good rapping. Which actually just leads me back to the Myspace ordeal at hand.

I wish you luck on your quest TS and I hope that myspace actually finds this and points a high-powered rifle at your computer and blows the porn out of it.

EDIT:^^ That's one hell of a Dr. Cox rant
"We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment"

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

That's one hell of an aimless, unorganized grouping of words that no one will read.

But threadstarter, you have to realize that MySpace is really just a microcosm of society. There are dumb bitches, sure, but there are good people that you'd get along with as well.

Take a chill pill.
Or valium.

why would you destroy myspace? Myspace is a good thing, not a bad thing. If you dont like it, stfu and dont use it.

But yes you could probally do it.

Hey, it's fine to dislike myspace, but to go as far as to inquire if you can bring down the site entirely?

That's obsession right there.

Yeah, i did kind of go all out of that.

Summary: yes myspace technically rapes girl but there's no real reason to destroy it.

Why would you do that? What, is that like the pussy version of shooting up your school? Shooting up their website? Just shut up and leave myspace as it is. Sure it's full of dumb asses but I have met tons of really cool people on that site who I never would have met in real life.

There is always a way. With as big of a website as Myspace is it would be insanly hard though. Most likely you would also get caught, and if you get caught hacking your screwed.
