Mr. Auernheimer said he actually didn’t hack the printers but accessed them via remote control.
Andrew Auernheimer, popularly known as ‘weev,’ a notorious hacktivist and white supremacist, recently accepted responsibility for sending of racist fliers to printers of about 12 colleges around the U.S. last week.
The flyers which were strangely dispatched to several colleges printers including Princeton University’s, was decorated with the famous NAZI SWASTIKA with the inscriptions, “the struggle for global white supremacy”
In 2010, Mr. Auernheimerin was convicted of identity fraud and conspiracy to access a computer without authorization, after he and a group of hackers broke into AT&T’s servers.
The supremacist hacker explained in an interview, that there were no specific targets, but all publicly accessible printers in North America were affected.
The motive behind Auernheimer’s flyers was to direct readers to a neo-Nazi site, The Daily Stormer. “My motivation is this: White cultures and only white cultures are subject to an invasion of foreigners,” he said.
Princeton University has promised to prevent future occurrences. After the fliers appeared on Princeton printers, the administration promised to try to “block any further messages.”
However, university officials have responded saying, the police have been alerted but it is unclear whether Mr. Auernheimer broke any laws.
In other words, they ain’t gonna do anything about this racist!
In my opinion, this seemingly innocent crime of printing racist flyers using college resources is nothing less than a hate crime, not to mention criminal misuse of college resources. And this “weev” should be convicted accordingly to his crime. It is outrageous and unfair that this racist still walks free. I bet if this guy was black he would be in jail long time ago!
