How idiotic. Would you like to be spam attacked, disabling your email and internet access? Please.DONNY B WRITES: "you say the DDOS attack "was a warning shot across the bow". You say that like you participated in the planning and execution of the event."
BECKY: Actually, that is what CHRIS DOYON said at his press conference.
DONNY B WRITES: "IN ANOTHER FORUM, YOU SAID: "No one needed to intervene or act at all."
OH really???? The County systems are attacked...
BECKY: I don't call it an "attack". I call it a cyber-incident. What HAPPENED is that for 30 minutes, the County's website had so many hits that it was temporarily disabled. Sometimes VISA goes down just before Christmas for the same reason: too many hits all at once. Is that illegal? I don't think so.
DONNY B WRITES: "... and no one needs to react at all??? That's like saying that if you were being physically attacked by an assailant, there would be no need for anyone to intervene."
BECKY: Except that no one DID "need to intervene." And no PERSON was harmed.
DONNY B WRITES: "IN ANOTHER FORUM, YOU SAID: "All systems returned to normal on their own." And how would you know that????
BECKY: Information Services Director Kevin Bowling said it in the SENTINEL the next day. see: http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/ci_16881435...
DONNY B WRITES: IN ANOTHER FORUM, YOU SAID: "Hence, the "damage" was so minimal it didn't COST any money, didn't DAMAGE any software or hardware."
Again, how would you know that???
BECKY: "They're not causing any damage." --Kevin Bowling Dec 17 2010-SC SENTINEL
It was VANDALISM. He took the bows for it. Are you justifying cyber vandalism as political strategy in Santa Cruz?
What was the political accomplishment? Were more endeared to your cause? Please explain how you justify this act.
