Cyber Sleuths Checkmated Rove? [View all]

Lots of links, maybe a developing story?

http://occupyforaccountability.org/index.php?q=node%2F1075

...On November 12th, we received a letter from “The Protectors,” apparently a group of white hat cyber sleuths, mentioning our reward and stating that two months ago, they began monitoring the “digital traffic of one Karl Rove, a disrespecter of the Rule of Law, knowing that he claimed to be Kingmaker while grifting vast wealth from barons who gladly handed him gold to anoint another King while looking the other way.” http://www.velvetrevolution.us/images/Anon_Rove_Letter.pdf

“The Protectors” said that they had identified the digital structure of Rove’s operation and of ORCA, a Republican get out the vote software application. After finding open “doors” in the systems, they created a “password protected firewall” called “The Great Oz,” and installed it on servers that Rove planned to use on election night to re-route and change election results “from three states.”

The letter indicated that “ORCA Killer” was launched at 10am EST and “The Great Oz” at 8pm EST on November 6th. “The Protectors” watched as ORCA crashed and failed throughout Election Day. They watched as Rove’s computer techs tried 105 times to penetrate “The Great Oz” using different means and passwords....

...On election night, Mr. Rove worked the three states that held the key to the election – Ohio, Florida and Virginia. But when he tried to access the Ohio election website, he kept getting error messages.


It all reads a little bit like The Onion, but then again. What was up with The Onion? Their "Defeated Man Victorious" most recent banner headline makes a lot more sense, filtered through a back story like this one. (Not to mention last week's, 'Millions of Voters Lose Power,' or whatever it was, that was released in advance of the actual election results.)
