Hacker tries UFO Defense?



In a totally bizarre interview a hacker that is facing extradition to the United States claims that when he hacked into a NASA computer system on a supposed “dial up connection” that he found proof of UFO existence. Well the interview on Wired just gets really weird. One thing for sure when and if he gets extradited to the United States the Insanity defense will work good. [Wired]

MPAA is charged with hiring a Hacker!



As you all know the MPAA sued Torrentspy.com some time ago but it is being alleged that the MPAA paid a hacker $15,000 to steal information from the company which supposedly included e-mail and company trade secrets. If these allegations prove to be true this could turn out to be a pretty big deal of corporate espionage of the worst kind. Collecting information then using that information to sue the company. I am not a lawyer but it looks like to me that if this proves to be true that the MPAA will have some explaining to do and may be in some pretty hot wire.

A attorney for torrentspy.com said: “We have very significant proof of wrongdoing and the MPAA’s involvement,” Rothken said. “We think it’s ironic for the MPAA to claim that they are protecting the rights of the movie studios and then go out and pirate other people’s property.”

From Cnet: “One MPAA executive is quoted in Torrentspy’s lawsuit as saying: “We don’t care how you get it,” referring to the alleged assignment to dig up information on Torrentspy. ”

Either way this is gonna get very ugly in the process. [CNET]


Apple vs Hacker in OS X PC Showdown



The battle and speculation about the take down notices Apple has been serving to various websites is going to get ugly before it gets better, apparently the hacker who has learned a lot more than Apple wants him to about OS X running on Windows based PC has started a blog. The MacNN site did not post the link to the Hackers Blog but the race is on to have OS X running functionally on computers that run windows today. As I have discussed in a earlier posting that if this happens Apple potentially could loose millions of dollars.

This will shape up to ultimately being a huge legal battle, but OS X will at some point be functioning on a Windows based PC.

But I can’t wait to walk into a Apple store and boot my HP Pavilion up for everyone to see running OS X! [MacNN]
