Anonymous asks: Though I don't believe in Ben Meakin's generalisation of compsci students to blame for the various attacks and such, isn't it more likely to be a compsci student to know about things like these? There are certain compsci students in 3rd year (I won't name names) who are pretty open about their anti guild attitudes.
I can see where you’re coming from, & I don’t think that generalisation is to blame. I know people who feel that way, & I’m sure there are people outside the computer science department who do too, for different reasons [this is the first return on Googling his name]. As a computer science student, I don’t feel that email spoofing is much beyond the capabilities of a layman, but my reckoning probably wouldn’t be accurate. Seems a bit sloppy.
