Hacking Attack / Internet Kriminalität

Heute habe ich eine eMail mit dem Subject „Your Site has been hacked“ bekommen 😮 .

Eigentlich stehe ich da drüber, bzw. habe das auch schonmal mehrmals erlebt, und nicht reagiert. Das ist das Beste aus meiner Sicht. Die darin enthaltenen Drohungen sind sehr wahrscheinlich Fake und ich halte meine Seite für ausreichend geschützt. Auch wenn die Aussichten minimal sind werde ich das diesmal an die Polizei geben – ein wenig in der Hoffnung dass vermutlich noch sehr viel mehr betroffen sind; um zu unterstreichen, dass das Internet eben doch kein „rechtsfreier Raum“ ist und um auf solche Probleme noch mehr aufmerksam zu machen.

Die Drohungen sind schon unverschämt, insofern … OK, es nervt mich doch ein wenig… 😉 Aber seht selbst:
