I think heads should roll over this. I think its the worst act a
corporation has ever undertaken in the history of the internet. I
think it sends out a bad example to the rest of the security community
that DDoS is acceptable. It is and never will be an acceptable and
effective way to beat spam or any other misuse of the internet. I
therefore ask people in high places and the media to call for the top
people who gave this idea the go ahead to resign or be sacked.
Spammers and hax0rs will not allow Lycos EU to build its bot network
of screensavers, if and when the site comes back online again. I plead
with Lycos EU to not bring the project back online for the sake of
everyone and the wider internet.
If Lycos EU bring the screensaver site back online, I ask everyone to
isolate them and I suggest business partners of Lycos EU do the same.
The screensaver can't be allowed to be a socially acceptable way to
solve any internet based problem.
If you don't then, you have just justified the use of DoSS to be an
acceptable solution to a given problem, and nobody will be able to say
its wrong for a script kiddie to DDoS anything to solve a given
problem they have with X location and person.
The argument that Lycos EU are not DDos'ing is not washable. Its DDoS
plain and simple. Yep exactly what script kiddies do when they have a
grudge over someone ;-) Lycos EU don't have grudges do they?
Resign or be sacked.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
