Save Mr_Cheese And HBH sign now

Mr_Cheese, the loved admin of HellBoundHackers.org, is being arrested, for simply doing what he believed in, and being a 'True Hacker', sharing his knowledge with anyone who wanted to learn, and trying to do his part to make a difference in the world.

Myself, along with many other loyal members of this website, are outraged.

this is the hardest message i have ever had to write, and could most likely be my last ever post on HBH. im writing this message whilst struggeling to retain my tears. I have been dreading this day for my whole career.

i love this site. i love what it has become. i love the members on it.

Recent events have now caused me to give up "hacking", and soon give up HBH.

As some of you know im having problems with the Secret Service.

They have been investigating me for months now and even some members on HBH have been interevied by FBI agents.

Someone i considered my friend, and thought i could trust has actually been working for the SS and been sending them every piece of information he had on me. He even hosted HBH for a while just so the he could relay information to the SS. Thank you danserv.co.uk betrayel is something i never forget.

Secret Service also bugged/monitored the HBHCon and even arrested a member at the end of the day to get extra info. This member had his laptop coppied and room raided so they could gain extra info on me and HBH.

My AIM / MSN conversations are being monitored and recorded, my internet activites are being watched.

I am almost certain HBH is only on this current server because the SS are still investigating and allowing it to be up to gain further information on me.

This isnt even 1/2 of everything that is going on right now.

It is only a matter of very short time before i get arrested, and as soon as they have me in custody, there wont be a need for them to keep HBH online, so it will be taken down by Secret Service.

The True Hacker is a dying breed, and im sadened to say there is no room left in this world for them. I mean no joke when i say my skills have enabled me to literally save lifes all over the world. Now, my skills mixed with my intense ethical stance on everything i do, has become a threat to the gouvernment.

I've seen people deface and hack hundreds of sites for no ethical reason for the sole purpose of destroying it and attempting to become famous. Arent these people the real threat? These people have never done a ethical thing in their career, have never saved or even improved a single life via their skills, yet they dont get punished?

i cant desribe how im feeling right now. im just a kid and chances are im going to jail.

i love you all and will always remember you and everything everyone has ever done for HBH. i wish everyone the very very best with whatever they choose to do with their lifes. i only hope you can follow my example and make me proud.

im so very very sorry.


________________


I know that the media has portrayed the image of a hacker to be malicious, dangerous, and unethical, however, this isn't the case with many of us, especially Mr_Cheese. As you can see from his above quote, and many other forum posts, he is very ethical, and is a 'True Hacker', one of a dying breed.

The site, HellBound Hackers, is also probably going to be taken down. We've had a bit of trouble in the past, with people questioning the legality of our content, but let me - and this (http://www.hellboundhackers.org/isthislegal.php) page assure you - we are a completly legal site. We break no rules. We teach, we educate. We hope, that someday, there will be fairness in the world, and hackers will be not judged by the few that do wrong, but by the many who do right.


Please, stop to think about this. Is this really fair? Should the FBI be arresting this teenager, simply because he has been steriotyped as bad? I don't think that's fair, and I'm sure that you'll agree too.


Quoting a magnificant piece of text by a personal hero of mine - The Hacker Manifesto by The Mentor - '...Yes, I am a criminal. My frime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for. I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual, but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike. (from http://www.mithral.com/~beberg/manifesto.html)

I know I can't do much about this, but quoting a fellow member on HBH - 'I'd rather die standing then live on my knees' - and that's what I'm fighting for. This is what I, and many other members, think is right, and we're fighting for it. How can the government want to arrest and bring down Mr_Cheese, when he's helping the internet far more than he is hurting it.

I know that you're probably reading this, and thinking 'oh yeah, some random hacker kids. They don't matter, they're hackers, they just want my credit card number' or something. Well, I'd like to stop you there, and correct you. I may be a 'hacker', but I am certainly not what the media portrays me to be. I am not 'evil'. I do not hack and steal things. I do not deface sites just for the fun of it. I do not unleash viruses on the wild. I do not spend my spare time excecuting scripts on government websites. Instead, I fight for things that I believe in, like this.

So, fellow members of HellBound Hackers, any other hackers, computer enthusiasts, programmers, security experts, and anyone else at all who believes this is unfair: please sign this, in the hope that, although we are just a minority, our words can be heard by the officials, and fairness can come into place.



And lastly, LONG LIVE HBH!

sarah_briarmoss, on behalf of all members of HBH.
