SOHH CEO Felicia Palmer’s Statement

June 28, 2008

As many of you are already aware, SOHH.com has been under attack by hackers this week. We noticed the first wave of attacks in our vBulletins forums and as of this morning the whole site was compromised.

It appears that hackers are specifically targeting Black, Hispanic, Asian and Jewish youth who ascribe to hip hop culture. Other websites, including AllHipHop and Da Piff forums, have also been compromised or threatened this week.

We are managing this situation on several fronts. We have taken down the server to patch the security breach and put in protections for future attacks. Also, as this is an international issue, it is being addressed by The FBI and the Strategic Alliance Cyber Crime Working Group.

We realize the hackers attacked SOHH.com because of our stature in the hip hop space and the people we serve. Unfortunately, we did a poor job of protecting SOHH.com from imminent threats from people who hate our community simply because of our racial and ethnic makeup.

This has brought to light our vulnerabilities and those of the internet publisher and users as a whole. What’s possible now is for us to join together to identify and eliminate this threat.

If you are under attack and have any information about these attacks please submit a report to the FBI cyber crimes unit here: https://complaint.ic3.gov/

    I found this funny… Black people perpetuate stereotypes in music. I blame Soulja Boy and all the other stupid ignorant rappers. This is the internet version of a rapper beef. 50 cent marries a watermelon, Tupac is alive.. that made me smile a bit This is coming from a black dude. For all black people, stop trying to act tough – you are not doing a damn thing… People said that these people better come up in a brothers face, they dont have to, they can hack your bank accounts for all they care. RULE 1: DONT CHALLENGE THE INTERNET.

    Also, people need to learn more computer technology, because they dont understand proxies, C++, and other computer lingo. Also this hacking shows that we are way behind in understanding the web compared to other races such as Asians, Whites, Indians, and what not.

    I call B.S. on Felicia making up a bunch of shit about this being about race, Anonymous was provoked by people coming to our site not knowing who the fuck ebaumsworld is, they talked shit, told us to do something to them, we did and now your here sucking dick cause your boyfriend cheated on you. The only reason racist shit was even on the site is because we know thats how you faggots were gonna take it anyways, and its what provokes african americans the most. If it were a mexican site, anonymous would laugh at them for being mexicans, if it were a fucking runescape site, anonymous would laugh at them for being nerds. Cry more.

    So basically what the first poster said is that black people are coons, and Caucasians, Asians, and other terrorist are way far advanced than coon? You racist son of a bitch, first of bitch… first of all on the staff of allhiphop.com which I saw was around 105 .. what percentage of those are “black”, secondly what percentage of posters on the site are “black”? Thirdly, what percentage of posters listen to hip-hop in the first place? (I bet you could answer the third question). I’m sure you believe black people need to stop smoking more weed too, and other bad stereotypes that blacks in hip-hop perpetuate as you said ironically…I’ll assume you’re not even black… oh yeah you gonna blame Soulja boy for an attack on two hip-hop websites Mr. Bush? Keep using the 1/5 of the 5% of your brain capacity “homie”.. btw Soulja Boy is a straight A student who found an avenue to “get out the hood” buy his own house, car,,, ya know lil shit like that ..by age 17 … what have you done?

    You see how the “Anonymous” dudes is all trying to pin this on EbaumsWorld, illseed? They’re trying to deflect blame from the various Chan sites and lulbat.info (you know…the site that hosted the phishing links). You might wanna make sure your bosses at AHH are up to speed…….

    4-chan has always been a racist cesspool full of degenerates and pedophiles. Felicia Palmer needs to seriously pursue a lawsuits against 4chan. Go after their money.

    I watched the whole thing go down, from the post that started it all to the last. I won’t say every poster at 4chan had something to do with it, but I will say 4chan IS Anon’s little e-hideout. Anon had all to do with this and I hope IC3 puts these guys behind bars and make it a crime for them to be within 1000 yards of a computer. This attack was 100% racial, and I also believe the person who made the 1st post was indeed Anon and everybody else just jumped on the band wagon. All they needed was an “excuse” to raid and that’s what they got. Legal action will be required on these guys because they will not stop.

    I witnessed the whole thing from start to finish. Sohh posters started it. Funny none of the articles point out the all the posts where we were calling them crakkaz and such. Both sides were wrong at the end of the day.
