FBI Taken In By Script Kiddies

from the taking-down-the-FBI dept

The FBI made some news this weekend by cracking down on an “international youth plot to bring down the internet”. More likely, the FBI just wasted tons of taxpayer money tracking down some kids who were bragging in a chat room. More support for this theory can be found over at The Register who points out that FBI never explained exactly how these kids were shutting down the internet.
