Their actions certainly will move companies into more stringent security, perhaps they have a product they want to release, and this is their way of getting demand for it.. WHo knows perhaps their hidden agenda is money also

Yep, it seems a simple 'anti-sec' google search reveals that lots of folks are under attack.
I'm still trying to gleam what these folks' purpose is though ...

It wouldn't surprise me if this group is loosely associated with Cult of the Dead Cow. From what I recall, this was at one time the ultimate hackers group.
The issue they are targeting seems to be a double edged sword if the security folks don't disclose the security holes in software then we don't know if they are patching them all. If they do disclose the security holes then people can use them against unpatched systems.

I have no idea what imageshack has done to upset these folks. For all I know, this could be their way of introducing themselves to the rest of us.
