Hackers Mimick ‘V’ In WSU Attack

Item: Hackers deliver message to WSU: Guy Fawkes-inspired video played in many classrooms ensures Nov.5 will be remembered/Kelsey Husky, Moscow-Pullman Daily News

More Info: Some Washington State University students are certain to "Remember, Remember, the Fifth of November." Multimedia-capable classrooms in Sloan and Todd halls were hacked Friday in such a way that video screens dropped and a 3:43-minute YouTube video played a speech reminiscent of the 2006 movie, "V for Vendetta," which is about a modern-day Guy Fawkes-style plot.

Question: Are you amused by what the hackers did here? Bothered by it? Or a little of both? Has your computer ever been hacked?
