CentOS + Oklahoma Story
Written by Michael Larabel in Red Hat on 26 March 2006 at 01:00 AM EST. Add A Comment

CentOS, The Community ENTerprise Operating System, almost struck a frivolous legal battle this past week when the city manager for Tuttle, Oklahoma felt that CentOS developers hacked their web-site and this manager wanted to report these "bad guys" to the FBI. What did this problem turn out to be, nothing more than the default test page after the installation of this Linux distribution.... How Jerry A. Taylor could even win an elected position is something. All of the email conversations can be read at the CentOS website.

Who gave you permission to invade my website and block me and anyone else from accessing it??? Please remove your software immediately before I report it to government officials!! I am the City Manager of Tuttle, Oklahoma.
