Network Hacking – Why Taunting Computer Hackers Isn’t a Good Idea

By

Would you dare a burglar to break into your home while your family was sleeping? Would you taunt a murderer or serial killer to try and get you? And would you say to a gang of thieves “just try and break into my business”. Maybe if you are a little daring and maybe if you had a screw loose you’d make these irresponsible requests. But in reality “bring it on” is never a good idea. Especially when it comes to your network security. Because “they” just might win.

The UFC.com, the official website of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, was hacked by a group calling themselves the “Underground Nazi H4ck3rGr0up.”

Fox5 reported Dana White, UFC President issued the challenge to hackers because he supports the recently debated online piracy legislation known as SOPA and PIPA.

“They will not intimidate me,” White said in a phone interview with FOX5. “I’m not intimidated. I’m not scared of what they’re doing.”

The computer hacker, known only as UgNazi, successfully took over UFC.com

Within a day of this attack it was reported that Whites Social Security number and additional personal information was hacked and exposed for the world to see. But in fact the information was for another person who went through a pretty harrowing harassment over the course of a few days.

Kicking a hornets’ nest isn’t advisable. And neither is taunting a collective of criminal hacktivists who have lots of time and lots of resources to make your small business network a target.

Reminds me of the stupid kids who got drunk and teased a Lion at the SF zoo.  One got killed.  Just stupid.

Whatever happened to that guy in the TV Commercial who rode around with his Social Security Number posted on the side of a Ryder Rental Truck?   He promised "Identity Protection"; he not only got hacked, he got busted for False Advertising.
