Very sly I might add. The problem with this practice is that anyone who is somewhat savvy with the Internet could spot the fake. The university I attend has a very specific website that you use to pay tickets (I know from personal experience, :-P). Also, it wouldn't hurt to look up the actual city in question and direct your browser to the local police department. Hackers...
Damn parking tickets to use for trojan horse god damn hackers
very clever. But damn these b!tchez are pathetic.
Wow, that was sneaky. It's interesting how things in real life can affect the online world and vice-versa. Quite creative too, though you would think that going around putting parking tickets on cars would be more effort than it was worth for a hacker.
Hackers leave the house? lol These sound like targeted attacks. I doubt they would go around putting tickets on random cars. They more than likely know the victims.
