    Hackers cause World Cup loss?

    I found this article, and considering it related to network security, though you'd all be interested. I pulled out key paragraphs but you can read it all HERE .

    Russian hackers blame World Cup defeat on magnetic field

    A group of Russian hackers claim to have uncovered a bizarre hi-tech conspiracy that caused their football team to lose against Japan.

    The stadium had a complicated computer system but the hackers managed to get into the system of technical servicing that looked after the light control systems, automatic watering and heating of the stadium.

    The heating apparently got the hackers confused because they believed there was no need for it in such a warm country as Japan.

    When they looked closer they worked out that the system was actually meant for creating a powerful electromagnetic current and field, the capacity of which varied from several variables that were coming from dozens of computers.

    However, the hackers believe that the magnetic field was actually used to bend the penalty kick away from the Japanese goal that cost Russia the game.

    Gosh...people will think of anything to try to blame someone else, wont they? That idea is farfetched in that there is no way to "pull" the ball away on a penalty kick without causing everyones hearts to rupture....the magnetic field would cause the electrical waves of the brain and the heart to pull towards the direction that the ball flew...God...these "hackers" don't have brains do they? There is no Fe components in the ball to speak of....How is a magnetic pulse going to pull it away from the goal?
