MinerBumping, the nerve center and philosophical hub of highsec, is a tough nut to crack. It has repelled many a hack attempt in its days.
Now it would face its ultimate test. A hacker named Th3 s7rYn6 threatened to take down the website permanently unless he was paid a ransom of 300 billion isk. Not even the New Order treasury could produce such a sum in 24 hours. More importantly, the New Order does not negotiate with terrorists.
Th3 s7rYn6's threats came to the attention of more than one Agent. Unlike other would-be hackers, Th3's threats were real. His credentials as a hacker were readily apparent: He substituted some of the letters in his name with numerals.
Speaking in local (which he referred to as a "chatroom"), the hacker made his intentions known. Agent Mildron Klinker struck up a conversation with the rebel IT bro to learn more.
For reasons which would soon become apparent, the hacker wasn't happy to see Mildron. Th3 was all business, demanding immediate payment of 300 billion isk.
Mildron was curious about Th3's motives. Clearly, there was a financial component, but Th3's comments also hinted revenge might be a factor.
As Th3 teetered on the brink of hacking MinerBumping right then and there--without waiting for his ransom payment--Mildron came up with the answer.
It all started, as so much else does, with a simple Retriever gank; it's every supervillain's origin story these days. Th3's minimalist fit mining barge bit the dust. Mildron himself was the executioner. But there's more to the story. Before broadcasting his threats into local, Th3 was influenced by the toxic atmosphere of the "Mining" channel.
Duke Mineiro > The only way you'll stop a gank is by cutting roughly 33% into your own profits, permanently.Having been radicalized by the loss of his fail-fit Retriever, Th3 sought to win favor among his fellow miners. It was then that he realized his hacking powers could be put to practical use.
