Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andrew Alan Escher Auernheimer, also known by his pseudonym weev, is an American grey hat hacker and self-described Internet troll. He has identified himself as Escher Auernheimer to the media, although most sources correctly provide his first name as Andrew. Auernheimer claimed responsibility for the disruption to Amazon's services in April 2009 when many books on gay issues were reclassified as pornography. Amazon claimed that Auernheimer was not responsible for the incident. Even before the Amazon incident, several media publications profiled Auernheimer regarding his hacking and trolling activities, notably The New York Times, in which he claimed to be a member of a hacker group called "the organization," making $10 million annually. He also claimed to be the owner of a Rolls-Royce Phantom.show more
