Hackers induce seizures in Epilepsy patients

The FBI should investigate this. It's beyond sick.
Several hackers began posting on an epilepsy forum pictures of rapidly-flashing images.

“The breach triggered severe migraines and near-seizure reactions in some site visitors who viewed the images,” writes Wired. “People with photosensitive epilepsy can get seizures when they’re exposed to flickering images, a response also caused by some video games and cartoons.”

The FBI is investigating the breach.

And, to use a favorite phrase of mine, "Hunt them down and beat them like dogs."

Again, I don't beat anything.
