"Defensive" BGP hijacking?

I know Bryant Townsend (ex staminus employee), Marshal Webb (aka m_nerva,
lulzsec informant) and others from backconnect.net performed a similar BGP
hijacking against staminus earlier this year.


Shortly afterwards, on 10th of march a zine is released leaking the
Staminus user database and contents of several customer servers.

The times aren't the only interesting factor here, even the format of the
release just screams m_nerva. Zines are very rare these days. So rare in
fact that the last similar zine before the staminus hack was released in
2013 by HTP, a hacker group m_nerva was loosely affiliated with during it's
early days.

I *strongly* believe Bryant Townsend and Marshal Webb hacked Staminus and
produced the "Fuck 'em all." zine
