Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-140) Illegal Use of Apache Software
Date Sat, 30 Jun 2012 10:41:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-140?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13404439#comment-13404439

Mark Struberg commented on LEGAL-140:

Is this a serious question or just a late aprils fools joke?
>From what you wrote so far it's sounding like "I am gonna sue ${big_pc_vendor} because
a ${big_pc_vendor} PC was used to attack my web site."
Or another analogy "I sue MS because someone used MS Word to write a blackmail letter against

What does all this have to do with the ASF as non-profit organisation?

Please allow me a few questions: 
a.) which ASF projects do you think are being used to attack you?
b.) what counter measurements did you take so far?
c.) what did the several security authorities in several countries respond to you?
d.) is ASF software also being used to kill kittens? Then we would of course immediately investigate
the issue!

> I have grounds to believe that Apache Software is being used in an illegal attack against
me. I seek your advice and assistance in identifying and removing the software and identify
those responsible. This matter has been reported to several Police and Security Agencies in
a number of countries. The potential illegal acts includes but is not limited to the following:
> 1. Blackmail,
> 2. Telecommunications Fraud,
> 3. Theft (Hacking Bank Accounts),
> 4. Identity theft, and
> 5. Fraud .
> Can and are you willing to assist me and police / security agencies in this matter or
refer us to an appropriate organization or group?
