Hackers are not only hurting your computers....they recently are being blamed for causing physical harm.

People who suffer from epilepsy can experience headaches, dizziness and even seizures when they see certain patterns or flashing lights.

Security experts believe a group of hackers planted pornographic animated images at the Epilepsy Foundation web site that caused people to have intense migraines that lasted for several days.

The foundation is going to cooperate with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to press charges.
