The complaint also referred to a Slack channel and said it posted there under the name "unstable". While the complaint partially edits the name of the channel, it quotes it. The channel, called netcrave, was deleted early Tuesday afternoon, but CNN was able to review the posts of the chaotic messages on it hours before.

" MSU receives hundreds of threats and attacks every day on our system, "Michigan State spokeswoman Emily Gerran said in an email." We investigate and defend them. every day, and it's hard to know if any of them recently is a supposed hacker in the Capital One situation.
