Comcast.net Hackers Speak…. This Is Too Funny – NSFW

If you want some cheap entertainment, take a look at this Wired article which has an interview with the guys who hacked Comcast.net (as I reported here yesterday). This interview absolutely had me laughing my head off.

Some observations.

  1. According to the hackers, they warned Comcast first but were blown off: “If he wasn’t such a prick, he could have avoided all of that,” says EBK.
  2. There’s a picture of one of the hackers (apparently from his MySpace account) using a bong. The fact that a someone actually set up a camera in his (or his parents) bathroom to take a picture of himself using a bong, and then posted it on his MySpace account is just sad.
  3. They’re no strangers to law enforcement: “I slept in my clothes, because the last time they came, I was in my underwear with my dong hanging out and shit,” says Defiant.
  4. They did it because they hate Comcast’s service (Comcast has bad service? That can’t be true!): “I wasn’t even really thinking. Plus, I’m just so mad at Comcast. I’m tired of their shitty service.”
  5. They could have done more damage than they did: “Nobody was listening in on the ports to try and get usernames and password,” says Defiant. “We could have, but we didn’t.”
  6. The hackers apparently used a social engineering attack. Network Solutions says that’s bogus: “There was no breach in our system or social engineering situation on our end.”

So, I expect the following will happen:

  • They’ll be arrested and perp walked.
  • These hackers 15 minutes of fame will turn into 15 months of prison time. Then they will become “consultants” when they get out.
  • Network Solutions will quietly fix their social engineering issues before someone sues them.
  • Comcast will go on with business as usual.
  • Someone else will do something to Comcast because of their Comcastic service.

Let’s see what happens next.
