I found this article by accident. This is so cool! I can't beieve this stuff happens even today. Albeit, on a smaller scale than SR. The hackers/crackers here carry out distributed denial of service attacks causing a whopping 2 millions dollars worth of damage to the companies involved. And they were payed to do it!


Also check this out. The incidents in this article inspired the events in Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex. Another case of modern day extortion except this was done years ago. Something like 1984 was when the string of events started.


Have any of you found similar cases of unsolved/unprosecuted shadowrun-esque activities in our modern world? This stuff is way cooler than heist movies could ever dream of being :D
