“Hackers Assault Epilepsy Patients via Computer”

  Wow, my last posts have been on articles that I have seen at Wired.com.  For some reason they have interested me.  Apparently some people used some javascript code on a message board for epilepsy support that had used “flashing computer animation to trigger migraine headaches and seizures in some users”.  At first I thought this was an April Fools joke but then I realized it isn’t April Fools yet.  Maybe I’m wrong but this might be the first physical attack someone has done by the Internet.  Unless of course you include some children watching Pokemon online.

 The article is here.
