A group of crackers calling itself the “un1x b0wling t34m” (Unix bowling team) or “b0wl3rz” (bowlerz) recently infiltrated a website associated with the International Association For Counterterrorism & Security Professionals (IACSP) for the second time in a week. The b0wl3rz hit IACSP’s SecurityNet.net site last week, which provides professionals in the law enforcement, military, government, and corporate security industry an “intelligence network that will provide the necessary tactical and educational information to prepare and hopefully deter terrorism in all of its forms in the fast approaching 21st century,” the site said.
In the letter-and-number style of most crackers, the group wrote, “th3 m1ndl3ss 4buz3 4nd 1nt1m1d4t10n 0f c0unt3rz muzt b3 st0pp3d 4t 4ll c0zts” (Translation: The mindless abuse and intimidation of counters must be stopped at all costs).
The group left a jpg image expressing their feelings about the owners of the site they cracked.
