How to blast AOL and other sites

Published on .

SegaSoft, in an effort to provide an outlet for frustrated America Online users, is offering users the chance to "blast" AOL's Web site with a hacker-like tool dubbed Web Vengeance. The tool, downloadable from SegaSoft's site, lets people launch "pies," "hand grenades" and "missiles" at the AOL site. SegaSoft offers a $1,000 bounty to the best destruction of the AOL site, and notes that "Web Vengeance tools do not cause permanent harm or disruption to targeted websites."
