Kimbles Me.ga hacked and busted

Wer hier eine Weile mitliest, dürfte ahnen, dass diese Meldung hier nicht grade Mitleid bei mir auslöst: Der afrikanische Staat Gabun (zu dem die Top-Level-Domain .ga gehört) hat angekündigt, Kim „Kimble“ Schmitz’ Domain Me.ga abzuschalten. Während ich mit dieser Aktion Bauchschmerzen habe (u.a. wegen der Copyright-Erklärung), aber hiermit kann ich prima leben: Eine neue (?) Hackertruppe namens „Omega“ hat angeblich Kontrolle über die Domain und will sie an Universal verkaufen. Popcorn!

For the last few hours the Me.Ga domain has been directing, via France, to a group calling themselves Omega. In an initial Tweet from an account created just four hours ago, Omega quote the words of German philosopher Max Stirner from his piece Art and Religion. “Art is the beginning, the Alpha of religion, but it is also its end, its Omega,” they write.

Omega are also operating from a Gabon domain – Ome.ga – and according to comments obtained by TorrentFreak, they appear to have little respect for Dotcom. “We’re pure in a diogenist way, we’re the true pirates, the true anarchists,” Omega told us. “Kim Dotcom is only taking advantage of us all, he is a megalomaniac with lawyers here to take advantage of us all, the nobodies, the artists he wants to profit from.”

Omega then go on to compare Dotcom to his old music industry adversary from the 2011 Mega Song takedown debacle. “Kim Dotcom is not better nor worse than Universal. He himself is an industry, only here to pollute,” Omega add.
