Heeb is no stranger to ruffling the occasional feather. It comes with the territory. Naturally, we don’t worry too much at the occasional disparaging comment or Mario Lopez segment on extra, but even we were surprised to see the following splashed across our inboxes the other day.
Here’s a close up:
Not to guess at the motivations behind state sponsored cyber-terrorists, but since we find ourselves smack in their crosshairs let’s put our investigative brains to work – Who could we have pissed off so much that they’d go all stuxnet on our asses? A few theories:
FRANCE: Maybe it was the time we reminded people that one of their national war heroes was a raving anti-Semite? Or, maybe it was when we said the whole country was full of “waifs and dog shit“? Either way, the benefit of being cyber-attacked by France is that the moment we tag their emails as “junk”, their entire cyber-infrastructure surrenders.

the royal house of Saud can appreciate our snappy, insightful prose.

Notoriously prickly when it comes to criticism, and with an online-security apparatus that has more or less defined the state of the art
, Israel has the capacity to dish out some significant cyber-hurt. Let’s face it – this cover, featuring a mushroom cloud over Jerusalem
, probably didn’t go over so well with the Israeli security establishment. Our guess – if you’ve ever said anything bad about Israel on the internet you will, eventually, be cyber-attacked.

Now, if you’ll excuse us – we have some emails to delete.
