Overnight Open Thread – All Your Facebook are Belong to Us (genghis)

Miscellaneous ramblings and mayhem to keep you off the streets overnight…like midnight basketball for morons.

This one has Ace of Spades HQ written all over it: Teen Held Facebook Page Hostage for Nude Photos.

”PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say two female college students report being locked out of their social networking sites by a hacker who demanded nude photographs. A 16-year-old Clackamas, Ore., youth is accused in the case. The Oregonian says the high school student is expected to face computer crime and theft by extortion charges in Clackamas County Juvenile Court.”

I wonder if I can do that with your comments? May have to experiment with that later. Meanwhile, it didn’t take long for professional handwringers and bedwetters to get involved in this case:
”The president of a Canada-based nonprofit called Bullying.org said hijacking someone's account and blackmailing that person has happened before but is not common. More common are direct threats from text messages, e-mails or the creation of a Web page to spread lies or rumors about victims, said Bill Belsey, a middle school teacher and president of Bullying.org. The National Crime Prevention Council, along with Belsey's Web site, urge Internet users to change passwords regularly and not share personal account information.”

Should we really be surprised that something called “bullying.org” is based in Canada? I haven’t bothered to visit them yet but something tells me that it’s not geared towards suggestions on how I can improve my bullying skills. The advice about safeguarding your passwords and access codes is spot on though. So if you want to go ahead and send them to me at the tipline I’ll be sure to keep them safe for you. So what finally did our intrepid hacker in?
”The OSU student called police May 6 to report receiving five e-mails over a two-day period from someone who claimed to have taken over her MySpace and Facebook pages. The e-mails said the only way she could regain control of her social-networking pages would be to send nude photographs of herself, Westbrook said. When she didn't respond, another e-mail arrived requesting photos of her bare feet.”

It’s always the feet that trip you up. If nothing else though, I think we’ve found our new site administrator in case Pixy ever says the hell with us all. Which he probably wants to do just about every night. All we ask is that he put up with the abuse just a little bit longer…until the kid gets out of juvi.

Tonight’s sponsor is below the fold…


Tonight’s overnight thread is sponsored by badgers. Of course, even the cuddliest badger can find itself in dire straits at times, such as this one in Germany:

”A motorist called police near the central town of Goslar to report a dead badger on a road - only for officers to turn up and discover the animal alive and well, but drunk. Police discovered the nocturnal beast had eaten cherries from a nearby tree which had turned to alcohol and given the badger diarrhoea. Having failed to scare the animal away, officers eventually chased it from the road with a broom.”

Once again, I think this accurately describes practically every night in the ONT, right down to the chasing away with the broom.

"It gives us an aspirin and a Bloody Mary or we gives it a nasty bite."
