Hackers Umur 12 Tahun?? Perghhhh....

A 12-year-old Canadian boy has pleaded guilty to hacking government and police websites during the 2012 student uprising in Quebec under affiliation with the Anonymous brand of hacktivists.
According to the Toronto Sun, the fifth grader, who lives in the Montreal suburb of Notre-Dame-de-GrĂ¢ce, appeared in youth court on Thursday, accompanied by his father.
The boy pleaded guilty to three charges related to hacking websites that included those of Montreal police, the Quebec Institute of Public Health, the Chilean government and some non-public sites.
The attacks took some of the sites offline for up to two days, at what police estimated as a cost of $60,000 in damages. A more detailed report will be handed over next month when the boy is sentenced, according to the Toronto Sun.
The student uprising of spring 2012, which lasted into that fall, was sparked by outrage at a proposed tuition hike and spiraled into a have v. have-nots version of Occupy Wall Street, marked by the use of Molotov cocktails on one occasion, police use of rubber bullets and tear gas, and serious injuries to both police and protesters.
Be that as it may, the boy's lawyer told the court that the 12-year-old's actions in hacking the sites weren't politically motivated:
He saw it as a challenge, he was only 12 years old. … There was no political purpose.
The paper reports that the young hacker has been involved with computers since he was 9.
The court was told that the targeted sites suffered three types of attack:
  • Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack: An attack wherein the aggressors bombard a target with requests designed to consume so much of its resources that it becomes unusable.
  • Defacement of pages. See Pastebin for a message posted on the Montreal police's website in French and English.
  • Exploiting security holes in order to access database servers.
Others have reportedly been arrested for the attacks, but it was the boy who opened the door to enable them, the court was told.
The young hacker reportedly managed to get at personal information belonging to the sites' users and administrators.
According to the Toronto Sun, he traded the pirated information to Anonymous in exchange for video games.
He also taught others how to hack, police experts told the court, though he reportedly warned them against going overboard, lest they get caught.
The Toronto Sun says that the court heard testimony from somebody who said that the tween put it this way:
It's easy to hack but do not go there too much, they will track you down.
I guess he went there too much, because they certainly did track him down.
Is he the youngest hacker ever to be caught?
Mafiaboy - the Canadian hacker who DOS'ed Yahoo, eBay and E*TRADE wound up in jail at the tender age of 15.
Canada: they grow more than maple trees up there!
Michael Calce - Mafiaboy's real name - would go on to write in his book - "Mafiaboy: A Portrait of the Hacker as a Young Man" - that the attacks he unleashed in 2000 were "illegal, reckless and, in many ways, simply stupid."
He wrote:
At the time, I didn't realize the consequences of what I was doing.
Calce wound up pleading guilty to 56 counts stemming from hacking and attacking the sites and was sentenced to eight months in "open custody" at a rehabilitation home for youths, with another year spent on probation.
Parents, are your kids extremely talented with computers?
What are you doing to ensure they're chatting rather than DDoSing? Programming for good instead of draining databases like some kind of cyber Dracula?
Please feel free to share with us how, exactly, you're managing to rein in technical talent so you and your child stay out of court.

3 Old Man - Which Old man will you choose?

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked.

"No", she replied. "He's out."

"Then we cannot come in", they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"

The woman went out and invited the men in"

"We do not go into a House together," they replied.

"Why is that?" she asked.

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth.. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"

His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"

Their daughter-in- law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!"

"Let us heed our daughter-in- law's advice," said the husband to his wife.

"Go out and invite Love to be our guest."

The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!! !"
