SNIPPET: "I had an interesting demonstration this evening from a hacker who goes by the handle The Jester or in so-called l33t speak, th3j35t3r which is his Twitter ID. Since January 1, The Jester has been systematically wreaking havoc with several websites he associates with Al Quiada and Jihadists via a Denial of Service attack delivered over the web through an anonimizer service.
The Jester has been documenting his attacks against www.alemarah.info, www.radicalislam.org, islamicpoint.net, www.almaghrib.org, www.as-ansar.com, www.islamicnetwork.com, www.islamicawakening.com, www.ansarnet.info, since the beginning of 2010."
SNIPPET: "So my message to The Jester (I know you are reading this since I sent you the link!): Come in from the cold. Work with counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism teams to further your vendetta."

SNIPPET: “In the ever-changing conflict between the West and Islamist radicals, one front the Internet has emerged as a major battlefield. And, while in many areas of this frontier the Islamists strut about unchecked, one man, code-name th3j35t3r (”The Jester”), has made it his point to strike back with (cyber) force. As first reported by the security blog ThreatChaos, “The Jester” made a different kind of New Year’s resolution than most: to wage war on jihadist and pro-Islamist websites and forums by systematically disrupting their servers via denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
Also unlike most, he has made good on his promise thus far and there is no sign that he will let up.”
We need more like him!
Whom do you believe here? If as Bill Whittle of PJTV says (videos yesterday, I believe) our intelligence is rife with Islamic sympathizers and subject to suppression of effort and demoralization. What would this guy “coming in from the cold” purportedly accomplish?
I would not want to work with any intelligence agency, they wish all too often to over complicate things and rely too much on electronic or technical advantages. And its arguably true that there has and always will be power plays going on.
Lone wolves work faster, eat more and are harder to track and capture.
Stay frosty, trust no one.
From the article: “So my message to The Jester (I know you are reading this since I sent you the link!): Come in from the cold. Work with counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism teams to further your vendetta.”
How can one be certian counter intellegence wants to disrupt the religion of pieces’ communication network? Given the politically correct way they treated Hansan up to permitting him to shoot 40 people at Fort hood and given we know radicals have infiltrated the FBI and CIA in the name of sensitivity and diversity, why would “The Jester” leave the real job of disruption of jihahdists to their Federal enabler?
Go it alone, Jester! Otherwise, they will kill all the good work you are doing for the country!
US Intel would probably turn him in for software licensing violations or some PC crap foolishness.
A commenter on that thrad, sums it up well...
I agree with Jester
Jester should be given a National Service Medal.
Lead, follow, or get out of the way.
Sh!t, or get off the pot.
Put up or shut up.
You go, Patriot!
I like this guy. ;) (Jester)
