Danish websites hacked by distraction

Hackers have been targeting Danish websites in response to the whole cartoon fiasco.

The sad part is this is looking like it is all about politics, and now sys admins in Denmark are getting unnecessary heat. The cartoons in question are purported to have been posted in an Egyptian newspaper some months ago; the people of Islam were seemingly steered towards a false enemy, and now technologists get the headaches.

What a shame.

Mobile Operator fined for SMS spam

Once again, the big companies are at it. But this time, they get hammered. Turns out, a mobile phone operator in Denmark sent out a bunch of SMS spam, supposedly as “a test”. With MSNBC it was a “mistake”; with these guys, “a test”. Well they got fined, as they should.
