This is not funny, Somebody could get hurt.
HACKERS from anywhere in the world could have gained access to a Sydney teenager's computer and sparked an elaborate shooting hoax in the city's south.
A Sydney teenager arrested after a bogus report about a shooting triggered an emergency police operation has claimed his laptop was hacked and he is the victim of an online hoax.
Wouldn't the Hackers need his residential address? I also think a little social engineering may have been involved.
