Peer-to-peer file sharing networks infection a hoax

  1. ""Gobbles", the German hacker who improbably claimed to have infected peer-to-peer file sharing networks and to "0wn" your computer this week, has confirmed that his brag was a hoax. That much, you probably suspected, as Goebbels (as we must now call him) failed to offer a shred of evidence in support of the notion that the RIAA was engaged in widespread intrusion of personal computers."

    If you believed the original story then sorry but you are a complete prat. But then I don't think anyone took this rather sad little fellow seriously. I know I certainly didn't.

    More here and here.

    Well if I knew the guy's name was Gobbles than I wouldn't even have considered believing it either.
