The International eBrigades

Iran's protesters are recruiting cyber-help from abroad:

Within an hour after I received a plea for help from Iran, a regular commenter on this blog recruited me into a hacker network that has been forming to support the democratic Iranian revolutionaries by providing them with proxy servers, Tor anonymizers, and any other technologies neededfor them to communicate over channels the Iranian regime cannot censor or control.

These are private citizens waging war against Iran's mullah regime. This is the beginnings of cyberbooters.

The next step is Internet-enabled remote war.
