So I read in the newspaper today that someone hacked into a support forum for people suffering from epilepsy, changing the code to make the colours on the site flash rapidly causing epilepsy attacks for the viewers.

They say it's the first hacker attack to cause physical damage.

They also mentioned anonomys in the article, and it may or may not have been an april fool's day joke (although I have read reports from several sources).

Opinions? Snips of information?

That's awesome. It is sorta the guy's fault for playing CS, knowing he had epilepsy.

I think....

SEARCHBAR

This storie is at least a week old now

It's exactly one week old.

And I did use the search bar. Just because it's old news doesn't mean anyone made a thread about it.

And on topic, I giggled when I read it. It's a horrible thing to do, but it's so DAMN hilarious. The mental images are just beyond funny.

I know that this was organised throught the chans. However "the management" (if that is the correct term for them) claims this was a set up by scientology to tarnish "annonymous" name .

I can't help but feel that the chan runners have never actually looked at the forums if they don't believe the users did this.

So the news paper was correct?

That's horrible man...my sister has epilepsy. Why anyone would want to cause physical harm to people who cannot help their disorder is beyond me.


#22
That is funny, but wrong because it is physically hurtful to people. It's a cheap laugh and a low blow at people with epilepsy. They should really be more creative/thoughtful.

Not saying it's right, but dammit if they didn't made me laugh.

i didnt think it was funny, what kind of an asshole would do that. I feel really bad because i was on 4chan when they were planning a raid on an epilepsy forum, i shouldve taken it more seriously.

my friend (who dwells in 7chan) was totally talking about how him and his internet buddies planned this epilepsy attack.

Report him to the police and kick his ass repeatedly, please.

No it isn't. People have purposefully tried to cause harm to people with disabilaties in the past this wast not creative.

And just because people haven't done something before, does'nt mean it is a creative thing to do. It's original yes, creative no.

No, it's like coming up with a plan that would cause a blind person to trip over by using a device that he'd expect to help him in his day to day life.

It's like training his seeing eye dog to trip him over.

It is worth pointing out at this point that no one have reported any injuries caused by this, only inconveniences and annoyances.
