A news story is out about how an Estonian student was responsible for the DDOS attacks taking some government websites offline.
Well, the big deal is that his actions almost soured relations between Estonia and Russia even further.
Hold the phone. WHY are relations between Russia and Estonia so frosty? Because Russia invaded Estonia and placed their blinkin’ statues all over the place and made Estonians very upset.
Now, 63years later the Estonians want to move a bronze statue depicting a Russian soldier, and the Russian minority does not like the idea.
THAT’s what started the whole shebang right there.
Sure the geek hacked the sites and whatnot, but again it is governments around the globe that mess around with international politics and cause outrage.
Sure geeks actually DO the hacking… but the question should be why, I bet that if one stops the geek witch hunt and starts fixing the underlying issues the world will be a much better place…
