Freenode IRC Network hacked

A HACKER called Ratbert managed to steal the privileges of Freenode boss Robert Levin and wreaked havoc on the IRC network over the weekend, it's claimed.

"Ratbert" sent out an offensive global message and attempted a DCC SEND exploit. He then killed off the network rights for every staff he could see and brought down quite a few of Freenode's servers. Freenode IRC Network hacked
