A chat room channel spat ended when a wannabe hacker was duped into deleting his own hard drive.
The 26 year-old German claimed he was the baddest hacker in town and threatened to attack a chat room moderator because he thought he'd been thrown out.
The arrogant wannabe hacker demanded the moderator give out his IP address and prepare to be hacked.
The moderator responded by sending back a bunch of numbers. The naive 26 year-old assumed his hack tools were being unleashed at the IP address.
Finally the hacker declared success." I can see your E: drive disappearing, he gloated, "D: is down 45 percent!" he cried, before disappearing into the ether.
He had just hacked his own IP address and deleted his hard drive. Served him right. Story here.
