hackers just goofy stoners

Bloops! Those hackers who took over yesterday were outted by Wired today. It’s a pair of industrious fiends who go by Defiant and EBK. They took over the DNS records, redirecting the cable giant’s traffic to their own site.

As it turns out, they were able to take over Comcast’s account at Network Solutions. They then contacted Comcast’s technical department to tell them what they’d done. Comcast hung up on them.

Angry at being treated the same as any other Comcast customer, they edited the registration to point to their own servers. They expect to be arrested for their efforts.

These guys are my kind of stoners, but let’s not mess with other people’s domain names, k?
