The Club Penguin Hacking Prank

Hacking is some serious stuff in Club Penguin. People get banned left and right for trying to dodge the system yet there are some 11 year olds that simply cannot live without some pixelated pink party hat or a horde of virtual money. Club Penguin HQ, a prolific fansite of the hacking and cheating community was once spearheaded by a collection of notorious repeat offenders. The site itself is online again and is attracting many “leeches” as they are called. Well, they call them that to be nice. What they really mean is “ungrateful sonsabitches that demand instant gratification and offer nothing in return”.

Seriously, would you do a favor for someone who doesn’t even have the common courtesy to spell “the” correctly and to spell out such words as “you” and “are”? I didn’t think so, and neither did forum user Squirrel007 who has been pestered over AOL Messenger by a certain leech for quite some time. One might ask why Squirrel007 hasn’t blocked this person… but as you’re about to find out these are the very users that provoke the greatest responses ever to pranks and misleading. Posing as an automated Club Penguin hacking script running on Windows 98, I teamed up with Squirrel007 to nail one of these leeches once and for all.

All names and passwords have been removed from this article for security reasons. It should also be noted that Squirrel007 sat on the sidelines and fed him bullshit “commands” to send to the system to troubleshoot once the shit hit the fan. Bear with me, yes this is a chat log but wait until you get to the end of it, it gets good. Unfortunately the beginning is rather boring as there was some nominal setup required to this prank.

In his moments of sheer terror, Stupid Newbie logged off hoping to avoid the ominous “Welcome to the Pentagon” text, but to his dismay logging on brought it right back via the “hacking robot”. Still, one must wonder why he kept returning to the prompt when it quit working on him a half-dozen times. Wherever our aspiring hacker may be now, the feds are not after him, but maybe it made him think twice about dicking around with things he shouldn’t… plus of course I’ve got his in-game username so someone is in some serious trouble.
