Definitely must not of just been some script kiddy then, they knew what they were doing in order to of fooled them for this long.

It was the Elite Sweedish Hacking Team!! Actually I blame them for everything hacking related

They make my e-mails dissapear when I really need them.

I use AMD, Intel, ATI, Nvidia, Mac OS, Windows, Debian, and Unix. There is no right or wrong way to love computers.

Because they are using old computer on their tight government budget. The entire government isn't running around with super secure super computers. I was on the USS JFK... They had Dell unit in their CIC (Combat Information Center) where the only security on them was the sticker that said "Top Secret - US Government Property."

Maybe they should hack mine... maybe then we would have some upgrades to our servers and possibly our T1 lines...

But really, I'm not really sure who would want to hack their way into a naval base... maybe except for strategic information

EDIT: Naval college... not base

Fenrir : AMD Revision (Formerly Conroe)
Need some more upgrades, but doing fine right now biggrin.gif
