may-day 2000? China/america hackers attack each other.
most of 2001 hamas/isreali hackers battle it out, highlight:
"" attacked, which was hosted on (I
think)... funny stuff :)

certainly there have been other country-targetted attacks before estonia,
yes. I do find it interesting that someone pointed the finger directly at

think the article last week about this said the finger
pointed started because 'a kremlin minister's computer was identified as
an attacker!' (or was bot'd and participated in the attack(s) )

anyway, fun stuff, I'll have to listen to the podcast eventually.
