Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

A new distributed denial of service (DDoS) tool which will enable socially-conscious crusaders to attack offensive Web sites without breaking into intermediate clients has been developed by hacktivist group Electrohippies. A victim Web site associated with genetically-modified crops will be chosen and attacked some time next month, the organisers say. Because client servers will not be commandeered as they are in most DDoS attacks, the campaign's success will depend on persuading a large enough number of sympathisers to fire up the script, dubbed DoS Action Stand-Alone Control Program 2.0, simultaneously. We were unable to obtain an evaluation copy by press time, but based on the group's description we believe it to be a Java script designed for Windows lamers. Further information is posted here, for those who can stomach the group's high sanctimony and summer-camp circle of goodness rhetoric. Be forewarned, the page begins with an epigram from John recalling Our Lord clearing the temple of sinners, and deteriorates rapidly from there. ®
