    This means that hacktivists can still be traced easily after the attacks are over.
    Yah.. in the same way copyright infringement can. That's why grannies and grandads are getting letters of pornos they didn't download.

    Hmm sounds like scare tactics to me

    Anyone who didn't know this already is far too stupid to be getting involved in a large scale DDoS attack. I mean, you're flooding someone else's computer with packets from YOUR CONNECTION. IP spoofing? That's not a technique, that's someone pulling shit out of their ass to sound smart, meaning whoever wrote that has no idea what they're talking about (or it was poorly translated).

    And please, don't use Tor for these childish attacks. Services like Tor are there so that people who might be punished for accessing WikiLeaks (like workers in the American Government) can do so without being caught. Not so some 14 year olds browsing /b/ can DDoS paypal. Sure, a DoS attack through a proxy won't down the proxy, but if everyone's using the same proxies you're essentially DDoSing the proxy instead.

    Hey, admit it, it'd be pretty funny if the servers hosting the LOIC all went down because too many people tried to download it.
