Know What You’re Doing

Danger Room reports on an effort by Israeli hackers to enlist assistance in attacking web sites that are considered “pro-Palestinian”. All you have to do is download and run their software and you will be helping the Israeli cause.

Except, their little “Patriot” program gives them control of your computer, and you have no idea what they are really going to be using it for, according to security experts.

Oh, BTW, if you are in the US, you might also want to read the text of 18 U.S.C. 1030 about the consequences of participating in a distributed denial of service [DDoS] attack on other people’s web sites. Free speech means everyone’s speech, not just those you agree with.
