  3. Hacker Says He Printed Anti-Semitic and Racist Fliers at Colleges Across U.S.

    PRINCETON, N.J. — A well-known computer hacker who goes by the name of “Weev” said he was behind a wave of anti-Semitic, racist fliers that appeared on printers at more than a dozen college campuses last week.

    Covered in swastikas, the fliers, which seemed to appear spontaneously on printers, including those at Princeton University, mentioned “the struggle for global white supremacy.”
    Weev is the alias of Andrew Auernheimer, who in 2010 was part of a group of hackers that discovered a security loophole on AT&T’s servers and gained access to the data of 114,000 customers. Mr. Auernheimer was initially convicted of identity fraud and conspiracy to access a computer without authorization, but his conviction was overturned on appeal.

    Mr. Auernheimer said in an interview on Monday that he sent the fliers to every publicly accessible printer in North America. He said he did not specifically target college campuses.
    The fliers directed readers to The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website. Mr. Auernheimer said free speech concerns were behind his printing spree. “My motivation is this: White cultures and only white cultures are subject to an invasion of foreigners.”

    The debate comes at a time of heightened awareness about speech on campus. Black student movements at many campuses broke out this school year, protesting what students saw as the continuing legacies of racism. Last week, the University of California became the first public university system to adopt an official stance condemning anti-Semitism on their campuses.

    Hours later, several people started reporting the incident on social media, and eventually a few local news outlets picked up on the story when colleges and universities all over the United States found that their network printers were spilling out Auernheimer’s flyer.

    Auernheimer detailed this “brief experiment,” as he called it, in a blog post on Friday. Later, in a chat, he said that he made over 20,000 printers put out the flyer, and defended his actions.
    “I did not hack any printers,” he told me in a online chat. “I sent them messages, because they were configured to receive messages from the public.”

    The hacker explained that all he did was create a script that would scan the whole internet to find printers that had port 9100, a common port used by network printers, open. Then, the script made them print the flyer.
    “I did not hack any printers.”
    “It's a big internet, I didn't have to ‘discover’ the printers were vulnerable, I knew there were going to be a whole lot of them on the internet,” he added. “That's like an obvious fact, of any device, if you search for it somewhere on the internet you're going to find it. There were less than I expected there to be really. Still a lot though!”

    Talk about lame! A Nazi/racist flyer was the best gag he could think of?

    Grey-scale pixelate an image of Putin in a dress.
    Send each pixel to a different printer as a page, with the x,y coords of the pixel.
    Add a bit of mystery spice to make people wonder what it all about.
    Watch as people coordinate worldwide to figure it out and put the image together.
    Unlock troll accomplishment level.

  8. Dude needs a proper biography written already or something. Despite a few serious ideological differences I hold, weev is still an absolute genius and is operating at art-form level trolling. Like pulling all the government emails out of the hookup site databases. Every time one of those tweets went out, it's like you got to watch another security clearance get revoked in realtime. Absolutely beautiful.

  27. Hes such a dick. I hope he's in Nigeria, they don't like white supremists there.
    "Court Filing: Neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin Isn’t In Nigeria. I Saw Him In An Ohio Grocery Store."
    It's a solid sighting
  29. almost perfect? He spreads hate. All this stuff annoymous says about the idea and you can clearly see hes not the idea. Annoymous take down a radio station for being racist yet support this white supremacist. makes no sense at all

  31. Did anyone here order a penguin called Pablo?

    No mention of which country that he's supposed to be in. I bet that's bullshit, and his lawyer is skating on the edge of contempt and disbarment.
