About

“Hack 127.0.0.1” is an online expression used to taunt a self-proclaimed hacker in a mocking manner. The phrase originates from an IRC chat log in which a user named “bitchchecker” is tricked into attacking 127.0.0.1, an IP address that is typically designated for accessing the computer’s own network services, otherwise known as the localhost.

Origin

On April 6th, 2005, the German hip hop music site StopHipHop[12] posted a chat log from the #stophiphop IRC channel in which a user named “bitchchecker” enters the channel and threatens to hack another user named “Elch” for booting him, to which the latter responds by inviting him to attack the localhost[2] loopback IP address 127.0.0.1. Unaware of its consequences, Bitchchecker then ends up repeatedly crashing his own computer.

Transcript

On April 9th, Total Illusions Forums[1] member Cochrane posted an English translation of the German chat transcript:
