Lock 'em up and throw away the key ...

... disgusting, simply disgusting.
But in a rare example of an attack apparently motivated by malice rather than money, hackers recently bombarded the Epilepsy Foundation's Web site with hundreds of pictures and links to pages with rapidly flashing images.

The breach triggered severe migraines and near-seizure reactions in some site visitors who viewed the images. People with photosensitive epilepsy can get seizures when they're exposed to flickering images, a response also caused by some video games and cartoons.

You have to be a total waste product to even think about doing something like this. I hope the FBI catches them and punishes them to the full extent of the law.
