While the names are funny as hell, the issue is not, especially when first responders are targeted. I am not sure how one protects a network from these attacks which are happening world wide. I do know that it is a really big issue that every internet user needs to address.

Key quotes: “[C]onfidential information that seemingly was obtained in the hack attacks is getting all too much exposure. Confidential email from the Puckett & Faraj website appears to be posted on YouTube, among other sites.”

Things could have been much worse though. We should all be careful.
