Salsa hacked back on right foot

first_imgOxford’s Salsa Society has fought allegations of dissatisfaction with its President, while a hacker highjacked the society’s mailing list with members receiving a torrent of abusive emails. OUSS Committee members have rallied behind their President. Eva- Maria Dimitriadis said that accusations made by Suraya Jina, who recently resigned as Treasurer, that President Mark Vincon had ruined the Society by running it as a dictatorship were entirely false. Dimitritriadis in fact claimed that Jina had lost power after the committee was re-organised to make it more democratic. She said Vincon was popular within the society and had been an “excellent and extremely accommodating” President. But, in the fallout to the allegations, a hacker broke into the society’s mailing list and sent members a series of foul-mouthed messages under the President’s name warning them not to read the article in The OxStu in which the accusations were made. Responses to this resulted in members receiving almost 200 emails. After the society’s unsuccessful attempts to shut down the list, Oxford’s Computing Services had to withdraw it and are currently attempting to trace the computer from which the hacker operated. A new mailing list is being set-up and members have been sent a profuse apology.ARCHIVE: 5th week TT 2004last_img
