Hacker’s pro-Napster rampage hits 100 sites

Cyberbiz Brief

Hell hath no fury like a Napster user scorned. In the wake of the judgment against MP3.com, a computer hacker who operates under the name of “Pimpshiz” went on a cyber-vandalism rampage, inserting pro-Napster messages on more than 100 sites including NASA, the Communications Workers of America and PalmInfoCenter.com.

“The RIAA does not represent your favorite music artists,” Pimpshiz declared on one site. “They represent rich record executives. These are the fat cats who make profit from the other 95% of CD sales.”

The next court date in the RIAA/Napster trial is Tuesday.
