: Another match in the fire eh? 
: Again I will add this to your file, we have also decided to send this to
: the local and state authorities.  It would seem that they may have
: interest in this issue. 

Actually if you were smart, you would contact the FBI instead.

Any computer crime that involves crossing state lines (just about
anything done via the internet) falls into their jurisdiction. But hey,
you have a legal department, they already knew that didn't they?

And yes, another match. 

let me try some simple logic for you. If we hacked your server, do you
think we would have mailed the FBI, CERT and YOU and warned you about it?

Do you think we also hacked the other 13,982 sites that we mirrored? Yes,
read that number again. Do you think we hacked all 13,982 sites dating
back to 1995, all by ourselves? Do you think we did that and just "haven't
been caught yet"? 


I'm pissing kerosene on your fire because I know who we are, what we did
and did not do, etc. More to the point, the FBI is fully aware of who we
are since we report more computer crime incidents to them than anyone else
in the world.

Thank you, drive through.
