    Thumbs up Vigilante hackers.....

    With all of the cyber-crime going on these days, why don't many of you people who have the ability do something about it? The FBI/law-enforcement/etc., can only keep track of so much (which is very little)on the net. There are many intelligent people that come here who are avid hackers and security buffs. I know that vigilantism is wrong.....but then so is all this bullshit child porn, etc. When it comes to exploiting children on the net, I think thats where I would draw the line of being a law abiding citizen if I had the ability and know how to take action against these sick ****s. I know that many of you have the ability......so why not do something??!!?? I know many of you will not agree with this post. Anyway, I found a great site with some links that may be of interest......

    Anyway, I really want to know what many of you think of this sort of thing. I know that if I had the ability and know how (as stated above) I would try to shut some of those sick ****s down. Thank you.... Haraam77

    The problem is where to draw the line. For some it seems clear, but any type of vigelanteeing(sp??) causes problems. Often, you'll start with the ideals of being some sort of "Internet Marshall" but just end up defacing sites that you, personally, dislike.

    I think that it's a great idea to take down child porno sites and other sick things. These people are sick and need to be taken down anyway. Why not do it yourself? I think it would be fun to get rid of one those pedifiles and then I would feel good about myself afterwards.

    YIHAT - Kimble. Gee, that was one screwed up attempt.

    Fact is, there already are groups out there doing this, but things like these need organization and dedication. Not many people actually have these qualities, and the skills, to risk something that is in fact illegal, just to put some peodiphiles out of business. Not that I'm saying child porn is a minor thing. It's a very very screwed up, disturbing, immoral issue. But when you stop one site, that just causes another one to pop up. You can't stop the evil, no matter how hard you try.

    Unfortunately.
    Why am I still here?

    yes they are the ones who make the goverment put there nasty little fingers into it and govern the net but you can do something about it, its called reporting them to the FBI so they can make the big bust. Well isnt that what some of are taxes go, to pay them to do there job? you know at the same time you are setting a good name for your self and might even get a job too.

    Howabout this one,
    Instead of illegally retaliating with ruthless vengence, why don't you take them on the legal way. Report the internet site to thier server, most likely the server will completely agree with you and ban the site immediately, but if not, you can always simply post the webmasters e-mail address on a public page, noting that he is the leader of a child porn page, that way it IS LEGAL for everyone on that site to send one letter of disappreciation to that webmaster, and if you post his e-mail address on several web pages, there you go. The offensive web site will be downed in a couple of days.

    first... i think that being a vigilante is a noble idea on paper, but in practice it prolly will not work. first most likely, in order to do vigilante work, you will be doing something illegal in return. that is no good. the second problem with vigilante actions, they can backfire. third, it would be nice to help the law, but it is ultimately up to them to do it.

    what gives you the right to decide who is right and who is wrong. i mean, i disagree with child porn, but... if they are in a place where it is legal, then it is not your right to stop it. beyond that, even if it is illegal where they are performing it, it is illegal to hack the site. now you are sinking to their level.
