CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

March 22, 2010 -

A 17-year old gamer playing Counter-Strike in a Jilin, China net café was accused of wall hacking and, following an argument with his accusers, ended up being stabbed in the skull by with a 12-inch long knife.

Hot Blooded Gaming has the story of the incident, which, in turn, is taken from a Sankaku Complex translation of a Chinese blog. The 17-year old stabbing victim retained consciousness and was rushed to the hospital, where it’s reported that after hours of surgery, the knife was removed and the boy appeared to be recovering. Doctors said that the rusty knife missed major arteries, though the boy was placed under observation due to possible complications from the rust on the knife.

 The café in question was apparently quite liberal in requiring IDs for entry, making it popular with local youth.

A second and rather graphic picture of the boy being prepped for surgery can be seen here.

No, no. Hackers are scum, and the world would be a better place without them. There was no sarcasm in my post. I am truly dissappointed that POS didn't leave the mortal coil. My anger and hatred of them is THAT palpable.

Is it rational? Nope, probably not, but hatred isn't exactly a rational thing. Is it something I would personally do to a hacker if I met one in real life? Nope, I'd rather not go to jail, and deal with those consequences. If there was a consequence free way to destroy every game hacker in the world? I'd send them all to their maker in a heartbeat, with no moral qualms whatsoever.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Being harsh there Val. Don't you think? I don't like hackers either. But some of my friends can hack into games. Do they want to? No, they would rather hack into computer networks and hack into wifi signals. What about them? What do you think about them?

Wait, wait-wait-wait-wait.  You would wish DEATH on someone just because he was cheating in a VIDEO GAME that has no bearing in reality?  Seek. Professional. Help.  Now.

"No, no. Hackers are scum, and the world would be a better place without them."

I resent this statement but I am sure it is because you are being ignorant.  You have confused the term hacker with cracker.  I'm sorry but there is a difference.  My profession deals with ethical hacking.  With your statements you condemn the entire modding community and the community that finds and fixes security exploits within pretty much any piece of software.  Here are case-point examples.

The creators of CS originally hacked it together from the original Half-Life.

Pirates crack games upon launch in order to avoid restrictive DRM.

White Hat Hackers hack Microsoft Windows in order to discover and report vulnerabilities to Microsoft.

Virus/Worm writers crack Microsoft Windows in order to exploit vulnerabilities and create a zero day.

Wallhacking within CS is a crack.  The Zombie Mod or Zero Gravity mods are hacks.

It's WallHACK not WallCRACK.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Don't be so dense. The term "Hacker" in relation to this article is CLEARLY used to define people who use programs to cheat in multiplayer video games. Don't try to play semantics to muddy the argument.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Val, you have to realize that there are more than just "hacker" gamers. A hacker person can be anybody. Does that mean you will get upset at any hacker, even if they don't play games?

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I'll play semantics as much as I wish.  Your condemning hatred of people who cheat in video games is ill placed.  They're just games.  Too many people, like yourself, forget that.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I may end up manifesting some condemning hatred for people who choose to play semantics on a relatively minute part of someone's argument just to make themselves sound smarter, and to confuse the issue. It's really quite annoying and doesn't further the conversation in any way, shape, or form.

That being said, my hatred is absolutely not ill placed. People who cheat in multiplayer games do nothing for the game except to either cause more people to cheat in order to keep up or ruin the game for honorable, legitimate players. Either way, it's a negative, and affecting the value of my game.

Yes, they are just games, and yes, I'm not going to deny that wishing death on all Multiplayer hackers is overkill, because it is, and I realize that, but I honestly wouldn't shed a tear if we had a story like this about a different hacker every day.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

"It's really quite annoying and doesn't further the conversation in any way, shape, or form."

The same goes for your constant insults and offensive comments. Do they further the conversation? No, but it hasn't stopped you yet.

That said, I think Vald may have a point. Whatever the term, guys who cheat in videogames still are going to get Vald's wrath.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

You would wind up being self-loathing as you do it to religious people all the time.

With all due respect, if you don't like the way someone is acting, ban them from your server or react in a way that actually does something.  Sitting there mewling because someone is ruining your fun is not productive whatsoever.  If you / the server admins of whatever server you are playing on do not do anything about a cheater then I advise you to either police your server better or play on one with better admins.

You have a messed up moral center and do not realize the implications of what you say.  No matter how invalid the association between video games and violence is, the stigma of such occurrences would damn video games and contribute to the media hysteria currently associated to the violent video games discussion.  (I cannot call it a debate as one side has no evidence beyond correlation studies... and that leads to a very uninteresting / one-sided discussion)

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

"If there was a consequence free way to destroy every game hacker in the world?"

 

Just vote ban them?

Besides, stabbing someone over a damn video game just proves certain people right.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

He was stabbed over cheating, the video game aspect is coincidental.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

This is a good point. I've heard of plenty of people being stabbed, shot, beat up, and even arrested/jailed for cheating at different things. Of course, the jailing is usually only when money is involved.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

 Agreed that its a good point.  However, I believe most of those cases are centered around cheating that resulted in financial loss.  Those "games" tend to be gambling and affect real life far more directly than video games.

An interesting point none the less.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I'd like to add, Valdearg. You're a moron. Get a clue.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Since you seem to be defending the hacking point of view, what, exactly, ADDS to everyone's gameplay exprience when someone hacks and cheats? I mean, assuming you're the moron who called me a "twich-mongering" POS, you must be a hacker.

What does hacking do to improve the experience for legitimate players? NOT A THING. They RUIN everything about a multi-player game, and frustrate legitimate, NON-CHEATING players until they leave to play something else. Hackers quite literally ruin good games.

On top of that, does it really feel that good to "win" a game because you cheated/hacked? I mean, you didn't do it based on your obviously poor skills, so it's not like it was a legitimate win. Any players who achieve things through hacking are just pathetic morons who aren't good enough at a game to do things right, and EVERYONE knows it.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Where was the guy defending the act of cheating in a video game? All I see is someone level-headed enough to not wish DEATH on someone because of his abusing code. Also remember that the kid was ACCUSED of "hacking", not neccesarily proven.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

The guy's comments were removed by EZK. He called me a Twitch-Mongering Peice of Shit, I believe. It's pretty clear he was accusing me of being someone advocating the use of skill, "Twich-Mongering," and it was in a negative connotation, which would imply that the guy doesn't support playing skill based games legitimately.

If this isn't the guy who said that, I'll certainly retract my accusations, but I'm pretty sure he's the right guy.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I think he meant to accuse of you being twitchy all the time like someone who has had way too much coffee.

In any case I might look the other way if someone gave a hacker a kick in the back or something but to actually stab someone is taking it WAY too far.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

That's the kind of assumption I'd make since the guy that tried to write what was deleted was already angry.

---- http://www.freyar.net/gallery

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I could see his statement of "Twitch-Mongering" being directed at you with the connotation that you'd support the idea of just turning around and stabbing someone without thinking about it.

I have no idea how you pulled the "He doesn't like skilled gaming" based on what you just wrote.

---- http://www.freyar.net/gallery

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Then you clearly lack reading comprehension, or, more likely, are selectively comprehending his statements to suit your own preconcieved notion.

Skill based games like CS, MW2, and BF:BC2 are often called "Twitch" games. His comment was in response to my original post where I called hackers the scum of the earth and all that. His only response was to call me a "Twitch-Mongering Peice of Shit". The "Twitch Mongering" comment was clearly directed at my support of actually using SKILL to win a SKILL based game.

Any other meaning you derive is absolutely incorrect. Moreso, if you ARE going to selectively interpret pretty cut and dried comments, try making up something better than "I could see his statement of "Twitch-Mongering" being directed at you with the connotation that you'd support the idea of just turning around and stabbing someone without thinking about it," because both you and I know that that particuluar interpretation is utterly rediculous.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

If you are the only one that interprets something the way you do, I'd have to suspect that it is you who's interpretation is off. I don't see how he would state that using skill to play a game is "bad". Hell, I don't consider Battlefield Bad Company 2 a "twitch game" anyway.

You interpret his notion as an attack on fair play, which I cannot agree with. Don't personally attack me becuase you interpret an insult to fair play when there isn't one.

---- http://www.freyar.net/gallery

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Bad Company 2 IS a twitch game. In fact it's a perfect textbook example of one.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

And don't insult my intelligence by making up a patently absurd interpretation and trying to pass it off like it's legitimate. It's not. If that, by some chance, is actually how you interpreted his attack, you should probably go back to school, and take some reading comprehension courses, because you are clearly failing.

Also, How is BF:BC2 NOT a twitch game? Reflexes and good hand-eye coordination are necessary to succeed. Yes, there is a mental aspect as well, but let me tell you, if two mentally equal players engage each other, the person with better twitch skills wins, every time.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

It's a debate for another day (regarding BFBC2's classification). However don't be making a personal attack on me because we have differing views. I saw it as a personal attack on your condoning the attack on the accused hacker, not those that play games legitimately. That's all there is to it. You read too far into it if you push it forward enough to say "he doesn't like skilled gaming".

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

There is no debate. BFBC2 is a twitch game.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I love how you condemn me for attacking you for having different views, then come out and insult my intelligence by telling me, in a matter-of-fact manner, that I read too far into it. I can assure you, his intentions were clear as day, and you are absolutely dull if you didn't see it.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Should we go back to the beginning and see who threw the first "punch" (so to speak)? As far as I am aware, you started this whole thing by being so aggressive that you outright discuss my ability to read and comprehend, despite the fact that the only thing I had to go on was what you wrote.

My judgement was based on your recount of what was written, and that's all there is to it. If there's anything to be said about my comprehension, it seems that you have a bit of trouble re-iterating what you've read. You didn't give me an exact quote, and I generally give a benifit of the doubt to people in scenarios like this. You seem to prefer to cruficy people the instant they state something that you disagree with. It's no wonder you supported the stabber.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Obviously it never crossed your pea-brain that he didn't give you an exact quote because the text in question had been deleted.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I was fully aware that it wasn't a direct quote. However how can I comment the same way, or have the same point of view as him with what he did write? It is the very reason that he doesn't have the exact quote that I give the deleted text the benifit of the doubt.

---- http://www.freyar.net/gallery

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Riiiight, so you're giving the deleted text the benefit of the doubt and not the person who it was aimed at, and saw and replied to it, thus launching your own tirade.

Neo_DrKefkaIf a company claims it supports the Klan or another offensive organization than the advertiser needs to make sure they're brand is not tainted so they pull they're ads. One side does not determine the right to determine what is universally offensive.10/23/2014 - 12:14pm
