d-bag of the week … from the “i got mine, so screw you” dep’t.

d-bag of the week by hip is everything

well, it’s friday so it must be that time again …
this week though, no alliteration or list of also rans …
this weeks winner(s) were easy to pick …
and deserve the title more than anyone else I can think of …
alrighty then …
straight to it then …
this weeks winners decided that they don’t think that their fellow americans deserve to have health care …
that their fellow americans don’t deserve something that is considered a right in every civilized, forward thinking, empathy inspired nation on earth …
that the last election, the will of the people, the rule of law and the decision of the supreme court has no merit …
that their own hatred of the current president over-rides compassion, human decency, fairness and their own so-called “patriotism” …


aca by hip is everythingRight wingers are trying to sabotage the already problematic Healthcare.gov site but this time in the form of a DDoS attack and leaving a message which could easily be credited to a Fox News viewer.
Security software provider Arbor Networks uncovered a new denial-of-service attack on the federal online healthcare exchange site.
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) is used to attack a single site, thusly causing a denial of service for users of the targeted website. The flood of incoming messages to the system essentially forces it to shut down, thereby denying entry to legitimate users. The message left by the attackers, “ObamaCare is an affront to the Constitutional rights of the people,”We HAVE the right to CIVIL disobedience!”

Denial-of-service tool targeting Healthcare.gov site discovered
Hacktivist software designed to put a strain on struggling Obamacare website.
by Dan Goodin

Researchers have uncovered software available on the Internet designed to overload the struggling Healthcare.gov website with more traffic than it can handle.
“ObamaCare is an affront to the Constitutional rights of the people,” a screenshot from the tool, which was acquired by researchers at Arbor Networks, declares. “We HAVE the right to CIVIL disobedience!”
In a blog post published Thursday, Arbor researcher Marc Eisenbarth said there’s no evidence Healthcare.gov has been subjected to any significant denial-of-service attacks since going live last month. He also said the limited request rate, the lack of significant distribution, and other features of the tool’s underlying code made it unlikely that it could play a significant role in taking down the site. The tool is designed to put a strain on the site by repeatedly alternating requests to the https://www.healthcare.gov and https:www.healthcare.gov/contact-us addresses. If enough requests are made over a short period of time, it can overload some of the “layer 7” applications that the site relies on to make timely responses.
The tool fits a pattern seen in the previous years of hacktivist software available for download that’s customized to take on a specific cause or support a particular ideology.
“ASERT has seen site specific denial of service tools in the past related to topics of social or political interest,” Eisenbarth wrote, referring to the Arbor Security Engineering and Response Team. “This application continues a trend ASERT is seeing with denial of service attacks being used as a means of retaliation against a policy, legal rulings or government actions.”
The full text of the screenshot reads:

Destroy Obama Care.

This program continually displays alternate page of the ObamaCare website. It has no virus, trojans, worms, or cookies.

The purpose is to overload the ObamaCare website, to deny service to users and perhaps overload and crash the system.

You can open as many copies of the program as you want. Each copy opens multiple links to the site.

ObamaCare is an affront to the Constitutional rights of the people. We HAVE the right to CIVIL disobedience!


so … our winner(s) this week have to be both the doucherocket who put this little piece of software together, the right-wing web-sites that have been promoting it, and every single one of the compassionless, shit for brains, factually deprived pond scum who used the software …
fuck you all! …
go crawl back under that slime covered bog rock you crawled out from under! …
just sayin’ …
we salute you all …
hip is everything salute
