As we have proven over the past few weeks with Sony, hacking is bad. The question is, is hacking always bad? It turns out that the answer is no; hacking is not always bad.
MI6, with help from James Bond, hacked into the computer system for the English-speaking terrorist magazine, Inspire last year with some pretty amusing results. They took files containing instructions for bomb-making and swapped them with content from the best possible source to infuriate Al Queda - the Ellen DeGeneres show.
What did they publish instead of bombs? Hit the break to find out.
Well, if you are the owner of Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio, you might feel proud to have your recipes used to foil terrorism. You might also laugh at the notion that the included warning said, "warning: sugar rush ahead!" on your mojito and rocky road cupcake recipes. A warning like that is always important when giving recipes to terrorists.
The CIA describes the organization in question saying, "the packaging of this magazine may be slick, but the contents are as vile as the authors." This, I suppose, is their way of explaining MI6's actions, despite the lack of need for explanations. I think we all understand their actions.
At this point, the only thing left to figure out is whether or not any Al Queda members tried to blow up any buildings with mojito cupcakes. If any of you have any leads on an answer to that one, let us know in the comments section.
