    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

    Anonymous hacktivists appear to have successfully blasted the Formula 1 website off the net, with a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.

    The internet attack against comes just ahead of Bahrain's highly controversial hosting of the Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend, which is planned to take place despite violent protests in the country.

    Just a bunch of would-be famous...useless attacks for useless causes with useless results... they should go return playing at Counter-strike.

    I miss the "true hacker" period where penetrating a network was a game of skills and cleverness, not as now where you can use many tools made by others.

    Denial-of-service (DDoS) attack .....are so lame...... a few hours downtime doesn't mean anything for the webmaster .... And I'm saying webmaster because the actual F1 staff don't even care about it:)
    The only ones who got affected by this attack where the fans ,who temporarily couldn't access the site.
    @Roti ... Ferrari all the way!:D
