The Ranting Script Kiddie who Practiced “Civil Disobedience”

Once upon a time there was a man who condescendingly used the term “Script Kiddie” in a public newsgroup debate.  An individual with the pseudonym  “Wicked” was offended and decided to show Steve Gibson that a script kiddie could actually do some damage.  He used his own script to begin a denial of service attack against www,grc.com (Gibson’s website). The script kiddie succeeded and the website was taken down. After an investigation, Steve (who was unaware that he had offended anyone) discovered why Wicked was attacking him.  After Wicked was done ranting, he and Steve came to an agreement and the DoS attacks were stopped.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WkD_Bot
