Gene Simmons Responds to DDOS Attack

"Some of you may have heard a few popcorn farts re: our sites being threatened by hackers.

Our legal team and the FBI have been on the case and we have found a few, shall we say "adventurous" young people, who feel they are above the law.

And, as stated in my MIPCOM speech, we will sue their pants off.

First, they will be punished.

Second, they might find their little butts in jail, right next to someone who's been there for years and is looking for a new girl friend.

We will soon be printing their names and pictures.

We will find you.

You cannot hide.

Stay tuned"

As Slyck notes, the ability to identify those who are participating in a distributed denial-of-service attack would be pretty challenging, if not impossible. But Simmons's threats and attitude (not to mention his lack of understanding of "hackers") echoes his misunderstanding that everyone who participates in peer-to-peer file-sharing is a criminal who needs to have their pants sued off or end up in jail.

So this puts the fabled Kiss Army (Soldiers of Satan, mind you) on the side of RIAA, Hollywood, ACS Lyons, VP Joe Biden, and the British Parliament, right? Can you see Mandy and Gene throwing down pints at the pub giggling about the anal rape of a kid they sent to jail for downloading a crap MP3 version of Love Gun? Yeah, me too :(

    THIS IS OBVIOUS SIGN THAT GENE IS NO LONGER COOL. I'VE LISTENED TO HIS 'REALITY' SHOW, AND IT'S MORE LIKE BUSINESS SCHOOL. THAT DUDE ALWAYS HAS EYE ON THE $.

    ANOTHER CELEBRITY THAT'S IN TOP 1% OF INCOME WILLING TO CALL IN 100 LAWYERS AND THE FBI ON A KID THAT WANTS A KISS SONG FOR iPOD.

    THESE DoS ATTACKS ARE ALWAYS TEMPORARY, RARELY COORDINATED. (UNLESS IT'S THE CHINESE GOVT...).

    WHO THOUGHT THAT KISS WOULD BE WORKING WITH THE FEDS TO SPREAD CONSERVATISM.
