Hacker Claims Credit For Knocking New York Magazine Offline.

As more details emerge from the decade-old deposition of Bill Cosby in a sexual assault civil case, it’s hard not to think of the chorus of doubters who spoke out every time an accuser spoke up.NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York Magazine is back online after a hacker took credit for bringing it down as they rolled out their cover story featuring 35 women who accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault. But once it was reported that Cosby admitted he got Quaaludes to drug women he wanted to have sex with and that he had a practiced method of trying to seduce the women, a good portion of the backtracking sounded a bit like this Tweet from Jill Scott. It’s a powerful, important piece of history in the making, finally gathering almost three dozen of the women who’ve accused Cosby of assault and giving them a united voice. “The group, at present, ranges in age from early 20s to 80 and includes supermodels Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson alongside waitresses and Playboy bunnies and journalists and a host of women who formerly worked in show business,” writes New York staffer Noreen Malone. “Many of the women say they know of others still out there who’ve chosen to remain silent.” Malone’s article considers our culture’s slow evolution in its handling of rape accusations.

The group says it waged a distributed denial of service attack, also known as a DDoS attack, against the site; in other words, flooding its computer systems with phony Internet traffic. Fortune chatted with the operator (or operators, hereafter singular, for ease of reading) behind the Twitter handle Vikingdom2016 via direct message while the assault was ongoing. Asked for a reason behind the attack, the spokesperson cited a dislike of “new york [sic], Including the police department.” Further, the hacker said that the attack was related to the magazine’s Bill Cosby story.

I suggest you shut your mouth.'” “In 1975, it wasn’t an issue that was even discussed,” accuser Marcella Tate tells New York. “Rape was being beaten up in a park. I understood at the time that it was wrong, but I just internalized it and dealt with it and pushed it down, and it resided in a very private place.” Barbara Bowman wrote a Washington Post piece last year reminding readers that she spent 30 years trying to get people to listen to her story. ET.) The hacker also said that “We wouldn’t be able to do ddos if he”—a man known as the Bitcoin Baron Hacker, an amateur hacker and activist who collected child pornography and despised the police—”did not exist.” While NYMag.com was offline, the magazine’s Twitter feed directed readers to its Instagram page, which features photos of and stories from Cosby’s accusers. In April, because it’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month we do a training for law enforcement where we have our sexual assault nurse, one person from law enforcement, an advocate and one of the counselors role plays as the victim. Then we ask them to do this: Think about your most recent sexual encounter in great detail and then tell it to the person sitting next to you in great detail.

It lets law enforcement see, ‘Maybe I need to tone down how I question her.’ The initial response from the public is often ‘Start by disbelieving.’ We say, ‘Start by believing.’ Everybody wants the ‘perfect’ victim. It’s online and can never go away.” “(Rape accusations) challenge our beliefs about the world and the people we can trust and our own safety and security,” Anne Ream told me last fall. “It’s much easier to believe you’re dealing with a confused or unstable or money-motivated person. We get in our heads, ‘Well, I wouldn’t have reacted like that,’ and then we start asking, ‘Well, was that really a rape?’ Victims don’t report because they don’t think anyone will believe them.

That’s a lot easier to embrace than believing someone we otherwise know and trust can be a sexual predator.” Ream, who was kidnapped and raped when she was 25, wrote “Lived Through This: Listening to the Stories of Sexual Violence Survivors” (Beacon Press), a narrative account of 18 survivors’ stories. I would hope we’d listen to those victims who have delayed reports and give credence to those voices. @JasBaileyTweets@SimplyBerry@curlyheadRED I’m not dismissing.
