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.

In this case something like Eraser would be enough I guess. But even if I had a copy of it, who says I have been at the computer at a given time and that there hasn't been an intruder.

You can make that argument in your defense. But no one on the jury is obliged to believe you.

Yeah, but all of this is ridiculous anyways. I mean it's like "You could have a whatever>, I don't believe you didn't use it for <whatever>".

Like "You have hands, why shouldn't you have killed your friend/wife/enemy". And yes, I believe in the stupidity of the jury. They are the same people as the ones watching talk shows, clicking spam mails, believe in ghosts, etc.

But that's nothing new, right? ;)

Why should one care?
A drunk driver can cause year death every day.
A (drunk) jury can do something similar.
