Won't last long I suspect.
If I was running a torrenting server in a country where doing so was illegal, I'd rig them all to blow if I pressed a button.
Nice ITG there. Except that they weren't his servers. They belonged to someone else. And seriously, putting explosives on such things is really a Hollywood thing to do.
Maybe I'm in a Hollywood state of mind.
How is that ITGing?
I'm like 80% sure they weren't breaking any Ukrainian laws.
Because "Bomb it!" is a stupid, Hollywood movie way of doing things as a first resort. So, you will endanger others and destroy someone else's property and that seems like a reasonable first recourse to you? Why? Because you're being an ITG.
So am I. I did a bit of research, and the Ukranian Gov't shouldn't have done what they did.
I meant more along the lines of,
"Hey, boss? The memory something-or-others are all melted!"
"Hey, boss? I'm on fire."
That's a huge coincidence. I wouldn't be surprised at all if that DDoS attack was government sponsored.
That was actually what inspired my topic "How would you take down thepiratebay?" Admittedly, mine was as the RIAA instead of the government, but the same tactics can apply with a bit more sneakiness.
What is the difference between the RIAA and the government again?
I don't know what Demonoid is. It sounds like one of those Brick-break Javanoid games.
Edit: Oh, Torrent Website. Meh. Governments need to stop focusing on Copyright infringement and start focusing on Child Porn. If Copyright stuff happens to get swept up into it, that's fine, but it's a terrible rallying cry.
One of them owns parts of the other. (I'll let you figure out which is which)
