    Hacker deletes own hard drive

    You're going down, man!

    By Paul Hales: Wednesday 27 April 2005, 09:31

    A CHAT CHANNEL spat ended when a wannabe hacker was duped into deleting his own hard drive.

    The 26 year-old German claimed he was the baddest hacker in town and threatened to attack a moderator on #stopHipHop's RC Channel because he thought he'd been thrown out.

    He demanded the moderator cough up his IP address and prepare to be hacked.

    The moderator sent back a bunch of numbers and there then followed a period in which the moderator assumes all manner of hack tools were unleashed at the IP address.

    Finally the hacker declared success."I can see your E: drive disappearing, he gloated, "D: is down 45 percent!" he cried, before disappearing into the ether.

    It seems he'd been hot enough to hack his own address.

    Here is the full chat room text, youre gonna die laughing.

          I never dismiss people as stupid, even the leetest amongst us can fall victim to a new virus, trojan or worm if well designed. When you underestimate people that is when you are the most vulerable.
          I enjoy talking to myself...it's usually the only intelligent conversations I get to have.

                Heh. I think LoST beat you to it in using it as a quote. :-)

                    How stupid do you have to be, to destroy you're own harddisk
                    The box said "Requires Windows 95 or better." I can't understand why it won't work on my Linux computer

                    if (argc > 1 && strcmp(argv[1], "-advice") == 0) { printf("Don't Panic!\n"); exit(42); }

                        On a positive note, you beat Darksource.

                        Not me. I would vote for one of Chris' or Noid's many posts-- lots of creativity in their one-liners.

                          While I believe that the entire "Hacker deletes his own hard drive" story is an urban legend, ( I mean Christ, how moronic would the guy need to be?), I found the "Your grandma surfs with a firewall" comment to be highly insulting because my grandma DOES surf with a firewall. On a more serious note, I did try to translate the comment into German (the language that the hacker supposedly used) and couldn't get a coherent translation. So perhaps "hacker deletes his own hard drive" is a myth or perhaps my high school German, and Babblefish, is not up to the task.

                            That's like the insult, "Your mama wears Army boots." It may be a matter of pride, not disgrace.

                            As for online translators, don't put more than a few words into them, and they work in the literal word, not the way we speak.

                            It may be an urban legend, and if so, it is one that I have not heard before.

                              urban legends reference

                              I tried looking for this particular story to see if it is indeed an "urban legend" but to no avail. In relation to urban legends, here's a site that may be of interest for some.
