The police have finally arrested Kevin George Poe, accusing him of being the one who launched 5-day DDoS attack on the official site of Gene Simmons.
If you are old enough to remember the 1970s, Gene Simmons was a make-up addicted, popular beat combo musician and tongue twister for the well-known band Kiss. If you are a bit younger, Simmons is currently a reality television star who runs a show named "Gene Simmons' Family Jewels". That’s how it started. According to the information provided by the local media, Poe said "nevermore" to Gene Simmons after the musician hit out against illegal file-sharing. Gene Simmons complained about the failure of the entertainment industry to sue every college student able to download copyrighted content.
A grand jury believes that there’s quite enough evidence to link Kevin George Poe to the Anonymous hacker group. With the help of the handle called "spydr101", Poe used the Low Orbit Ion Cannon (also known as LOIC) to launch DDoS attacks on the Kiss man's official site. However, he appeared to be not the best hacker across the globe – apparently, he didn’t manage to realize that the instrument he used would add his IP address into the packets he generated. However, one should be fair to Poe: it took the police too so long to arrest him because he did make some efforts to cover his tracks.
Poe was arrested at the federal courthouse on charges of conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected PC. He appeared a week ago in an American District Court in Hartford, Connecticut, and had been ordered to release immediately on a $10,000 bond. Now he has to appear in federal court in Los Angeles to face up to 15 years of jail time.
The jokes are that if he was British or had Aspergers, he could have been looking at 60 years.

|15 years? What a joke. There are people walking this planet who have served less time for murder. Who are you going to kill if Gene Simmons can't update his blog? Jesus, I think Poe probably SAVED lives in this case.|

|you can go run someone over with a car and only get like 5 year. 15 for hacking, what the hell is he actually losing. nothing if he backs up his site. now a fine, i can see, but not 15 for something that didnt even hurt no one at all, just maybe some egos|

julio99 said scare tactics
|I guess to cover yourself there is only one method that is to use unsecured connection like wifi hot-spots or cyber-cafe.|
Is there any other method coz whatever software you use, you gonna get caught even from Torr also.
Please correct me, if I'm wrong....
|breakdown avatar +1 for madvillain its funny but so true gotta love the US land of the free, lolzers xD|
depends on vikas_007sharma :
well tor for one is not "safe" only if the site your visiting is an onion site if not then your not , simple as that and
if you believe your safe behind peerblock aka peerguardian 2 ..lolz xD, i got it too out of love for apps that make you feel "safe" btw peerblock 2 is in development, its fun just to see how many ip's it blocks xD, one word ...dont rely on that alone ok as soon as you download a torrent your ip isnt blocked from the person putting that file out for download they can see you crystal clear!!!
here try this
checkmytorrentip.com/ just add the http:// since posting wont allow it for some reason -.-'
only "safe" way to go bout it is to use a paid vpn as said ,one without logging ,with openvpn and 128-bit SSL encryption at the least, and not in your own country nor the USA....no way around it , peace
|and if you ran a corporation that ruined thousands of peoples lives by losing their jobs, pension, etc, you get praise as a job creator by republicans and a handout by the government.||
