Vicious little fuckers.
Hope they will be caught soon.
A gang of internet idiots are using voice-over-internet-protocol (VoIP) services to phone-in fake bomb threats to schools across the UK, France, and Australia in exchange for Bitcoins. The group operating under the scuppered @Ev4cuati0nSquad Twitter account have called in fake bomb threats to dozens of schools in those …
$50 says someone else uses them as a smokescreen to cover up an ACTUAL attack?
I'm not a betting man, but I reckon that will (a) certainly happen and that will (b) spell the end of this little club of idiots because at that point the big boys will take a look. After all, they now have plenty of empty cells at Guantanamo Bay.
Claiming the ability and actually having it are two different things.
But no, you're not alone. It's a chilling prospect, and a tasty price for anyone twisted and vindictive enough to consider it. And of course the cops will nick you, freeze your accounts, bust your door in an swipe all your IT kit, before eventually realising it's a frame-up.
Meanwhile you're jobless (cos you got nicked), homeless (cos you've got no job and your bank accounts are frozen), and likely to get lynched. Great.
"Hello, and we are EvacuationSquad. We do what we do for a few reasons: We hate the American government, We hate authority, and we LOVE to cause mayhem."
Then cause mayhem to those you hate dickwads. It's only the
subjects victims of those you hate that suffer as a result of this juvenile shit
I see maybe irony, but more like stupidity in that opening statement.. They hate "American government" but they haven't called in any threats in America. Then in the quotation at the end of the article, the money is in dollars*. Methinks the Russian bit is a stretch**. The price they're asking is basically peanuts maybe it is a cover operation like "boy who calls wolf"....
*The statements say $(US) for the services.. the article says "bitcoins"... Bitcoins might be universal, but $(US) seems a bit strange. Why not Euros?
** In many jurisdiction in the States, phoning a bomb threat is a felony as security and emergency services usually need to be sent. Many companies just ignore the threat, call the authorities since historically, they've all be fakes.
The boss called an assembly yesterday to go over the evac & lockdown tones for the new starters.
He did say that every threat so far has been a hoax, but we will evacuate to the oval regardless. He pointed out that the oval has no shade or cover & the forecast for the rest of the week is either a hot & humid 30c or rain. He then went on to say that if we do evacuate, we will be sitting on the oval until police have checked the whole school, which will take between 3 & 6 hours, even if the threat is called 30 secs before the going home bell..
An interesting "deterrent" to any of his pupils attempting to use the service. Unless one or two really don't give a shit and and the innocent 99.99% end up sitting out there in baking heat or rain for the suggested 3-6 hours detention.
We had a teacher who threatened our entire class with detention over some incident or other. I forget what it was now, other than we pointed out to the teacher that no one could know who did it other than the culprits and if he thought we'd all take the punishment for something we neither did nor could inform on than he had better just forget it. THis was in the days before "human rights" means detention has to set by appointment with at least 24 hours notice.
I would suggest that the school head making those claims was blustering purely as a deterrent since come end of day when the school buses and parents are at the gates he'd be on a bit of a sticky wicket holding everyone back for 3+ hours.
