Princeton University Investigating Remotely-Printed Anti-Semitic Fliers

Fliers bearing anti-Semitic messages landed in the paper trays of several networked printers at Princeton University and other colleges across the country this week in a remote attack on people of the Jewish faith.

The fliers began to appear Thursday at Princeton University; Brown University, in Providence, Rhode Island; the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles; and others. :D

"Princeton attaches great importance to mutual respect, and we deplore expressions of hatred directed against any individual or group," the university's vice provost for institutional equity and inclusion, Michele Minter, said in a statement.

The director of the New England office of the Anti-Defamation League, Robert Trestan, said a white power group appears to have hacked into school printers. He said that's a new tactic for a hate group.

The fliers are addressed to "white men" and disparage Jewish people. They include links to a neo-Nazi website.

Trestan said the founder of the website previously urged supporters to troll perceived enemies, including a Jewish member of the British Parliament, Luciana Berger, on Twitter.

He said other affected schools include Smith College, in Northampton, Massachusetts; the University of California, Santa Cruz; Northeastern University, in Boston; the University of Rhode Island; the University of Connecticut; DePaul University, in Chicago, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

The chancellor of UMass Amherst, Kumble Subbaswamy :confused:, called the fliers "cowardly" in an email to students and faculty members.

"This despicable incident :rolleyes: reminds us that we must not be complacent as we continue to strive for a society that embraces diversity, inclusion and equity — a society where everyone feels safe and welcome," he wrote.

Anti-Semitic hate group fliers printed by a hacker on campuses across America!

Encouraging students to join the hate site DailyStormer.com!

Who could be responsible?????

Some type of Nazi hacker???????

Yes, weev has really outdone himself this time.

Thousands of printers are printing this flier, all across the globe!

You can also type “anti-semitic printers” or “hacked printers” into Google News and get more stories from dozens (tomorrow it may be hundreds) of schools across the country.

The details are all on a Storify he posted Friday.

You all need to send him bitcoin for this (not to mention all the rest he does for this site – he’s basically the only reason it’s still running):

I’ll be writing more on this in the morning (or maybe afternoon), but wanted to get something up now while the drama is HOT HOT HOT.

2016 truly is the best year ever.

EVER.

Hail Victory.

Hacker Says He Printed Anti-Semitic and Racist Fliers at Colleges Across U.S.

MARCH 28, 2016

PRINCETON, N.J. — A well-known computer hacker who goes by the name of “Weev” said he was behind a wave of anti-Semitic, racist fliers that appeared on printers at more than a dozen college campuses last week.

Covered in swastikas, the fliers, which seemed to appear spontaneously on printers, including those at Princeton University, mentioned “the struggle for global white supremacy.”

Weev is the alias of Andrew Auernheimer, who in 2010 was part of a group of hackers that discovered a security loophole on AT&T’s servers and gained access to the data of 114,000 customers. Mr. Auernheimer was initially convicted of identity fraud and conspiracy to access a computer without authorization, but his conviction was overturned on appeal.

Mr. Auernheimer said in an interview on Monday that he sent the fliers to every publicly accessible printer in North America. He said he did not specifically target college campuses.

The fliers directed readers to The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website. Mr. Auernheimer said free speech concerns were behind his printing spree. “My motivation is this: White cultures and only white cultures are subject to an invasion of foreigners.”

The debate comes at a time of heightened awareness about speech on campus. Black student movements at many campuses broke out this school year, protesting what students saw as the continuing legacies of racism. Last week, the University of California became the first public university system to adopt an official stance condemning anti-Semitism on their campuses.

After the fliers appeared on Princeton University printers, the administration promised to try to “block any further messages.”:D

Students Lambaste Hacker Who Remotely Sent Anti-Semitic Fliers To Printers At SoCal Colleges
April 4, 2016 11:14 PM

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — After a rash :)of anti-Semitic fliers recently began printing from network-connected printers or fax machines at several colleges in the Southland, students said they are appalled.

“Wow. That’s horrible, and that’s scary,” said one USC student.

The fliers appeared late last month at institutions including USC and Cal State Long Beach, along with other schools across the country, including Princeton University, Brown University, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The fliers were addressed to “white men” and were intended to disparage Jewish people. They included links to a neo-Nazi website.

The hacker who stepped forward to take responsibility — Andrew Aurenheimer — told CBS2’s Tom Wait why he pulled the stunt.

“We are undergoing a demographic collapse that will destroy us completely at the hands of Jewish manipulators. We must fight,” he said, via Twitter.

Aurenheimer is believed to be living in Eastern Europe. He said rather than hacking into private networks, the printers he used were easily assessed from public portals.

Some students said the best way to fight his hateful message is with kindness.:cool:

“How about a flier that has an inspiring or empowering message?” another USC student said. “Maybe that would be a good counteraction to that.”
