Internet & Networking For a number of days the websites of MasterCard, Visa, PayPal and others wre attacked by a group of WikiLeaks supporters ('hacktivists'). Although the group calls itself 'Anonymous', researchers at the DACS group of the University of Twente (UT), the Netherlands, discovered that these hacktivists are easily traceable, and therefore anything but anonymous.

How can they prove it was the users of those computers and not someone who hacked into those machines and did the business without leaving any trace of their presence? ;)


Probably as simple as concluding that it's not even necessary to hack a machine when people are taking part on their own.
