Subject: [defaced-commentary] Kim Schmitz (aka Kimble) defaced
On October 11th, the defacer known as 'Fluffy Bunni' hacked and
defaced two web sites belonging to Kim Schmitz (aka Kimble).
Schmitz is best known for his flamboyant style that seems to attract
media attention. Widely criticized as a charlatan in the computer
security industry, Schmitz has spent the last few years as head of a
network security company in Europe before moving into the field of
business and start ups.
Since the Sept 11 disaster, Kimble has made news by offering 10
million dollars for information leading to the apprehension of Osama
Bin Laden, despite filing for bankruptcy at the same time. A week
later, Kimble formed "YIHAT" (Young Intelligent Hackers Against
Terrorism) and created kill.net as the homepage for the endeavor.
