...Yes, actually because we've been hit and...That script is far from able to overload a decent server.
Note that I said decent because in 2011, I can make a server for you, right now, on Newegg, for under 1k that COULD handle over 1k connections in .2s...Hell, we can rack it for 3k with double the load.
Your theory is 100% speculation...but, let's look at what else he's done.
Oracle, Nginx, multiple SQL db's ~ in fact his last hack was an Oracle + SQL at the same time...Via script? Hardly.
Try it yourself...I'd love to be proven wrong.
Even if he was "scripting" it's heavily modified...This isn't Anonymous having 1 core coder and spreading the love or Lulz doing the same, this is an individual hacking multiple hosts at the same time on multiple server OS's...That's skill.
If he had attacked 1SOS, I wouldn't really be arguing with you because, while I don't hack, pulling up multiple scripts over multiple virtual/real IP's isn't a problem, so I would agree...But, the fact that he's attacked 2 COMPLETELY different SOS's at the same time, plus he then added a 3rd, all over apparently the same connection...I have to disagree this is a 'script kiddy'.
I also have to disagree that this is just some Joe Schmoe living in New York...Especially since he claims to be from the city...You can't get that 1gb connection 'here' without SERIOUS cash and no Admin is going to let someone pony through UNLESS he's the NA.
