Heh, unbelievable.  As if the type of hacker interested in DoD attacks (properly actually called a "cracker," but not a "hacker") would put related files in a directory actually labelled "/hacking."

I'm not a hacker in that sense, but if I were, I would call such a directory something innocuous, such as "/misc."

Perhaps now we need to consider renaming "Hackage" (http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hackage)?  ;-)
