Dial-a-Hacker: LulzSec Opens Request Line for Next Target


www.pcworld.com

ave you ever felt so angry at a company that you wished its website was hacked to shreds, but you didn't have the technical expertise required? Here comes LulzSec to the rescue. The marauding hackers, with their huge and growing list of conquests -- including PBS, the FBI and the U.S. Senate, pornography and gaming sites, and most of all, Sony -- opened a hack request line during their latest merry jaunt, Titanic Takeover Tuesday.

This would be hysterical if it didn't give TPTB just one more excuse
to try and censor the internet. In the end, that is the only purpose it serves I think. It'll tick off these corporations. I'm sure it'll tick off the FBI. But it won't really stop them continuing with their greedy, psychopathic ways. The rest of us will just lose more rights because of it.

I'm a bit dubious of lulzsec's intent but I'll grant they've got class and lulz

Yeah, shame they be one more reason for the government to come crashing down on the internet... but then again if they keep this up sooner or later if they are what they seem to be they'll try to take down the governemtn like anon is doing.

So these people have no point. They're just destroying property and potentially putting the internet at risk(of legislation) to get their jollies off?

I hope these people wind up in prison.

Perhaps the Hacks are the front lines of the next revolution...cyber Marines, if you will.

as long as, within their mission, they intend to keep the free information flow open.

here's a novel idea, how about these hackers doe some real good and get files that expose coverups we all know is happening? I hoped wikileaks would do that, but alas that was not to be. If they did that, I think they would have a much greater following.

In prison? What's up with that? What about the CEO's of some of these companies?
Or how about Bernanke? These hackers might be irritating them a bit, but what about the
destruction they have brought on? And why are none of them in prison? Sorry, I hardly
think what they (hackers) are doing deserves prison time.

Maybe Lulzsec can hack Wikileaks so we can finally see what they supposedly have on this big American bank...

I'd suggest to haxx0r itanimulli.com and nasa.gov! In honor of Gary McKinnon.

What did the CEOs of these companies do?

I agree with the Bernanke thing, but that's a different group.

If you can come up with a shred of information on what the CEOs of the companies did to have their customers information compromised and likely stolen I like to see it. They're doing it because they think it's fun. All they're doing is exposing innocent people to theft.

Is there a front runner? They should do a poll with the top ten choices so several companies can sweat as they watch their names rise and fall in the polls.

Now that is an interesting idea, a poll, hmm...makes you think..no ?.

But these cyber warriors will not go away and they all cannot be put in jail, one simply needs to keep in mind that these guys or the hardcore that is, do not use their own internet access lines, i assume the simply log into existing networks.

Yup, this is exactly the type of typical nerd behaviour that will only give TPTB an excuse to clamp down on our current un-regulated internet activities. Trying to convince beurocrats that the internet should be regulated on the premise that people are downloading so called "pirated media" is one thing. However, when groups packed with pimple faced nerds who have yet to get laid start destroying property and compromising peoples identity, it's a whole other ball game and I imagine legislation to clamp down on such activites would be swiftly passed with no opposition.

These imbeciles should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law under existing laws and regulations.

While being amongst the more digitally powerful branches of Anon, Lulzsec is not to be trusted! They are completely different from the "Anonymous" that most of you have come to know the past year, being much easier to manipulate, much easier to tempt and easier to and infiltrate by TPTB because of their arrogance. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Not all Hackers look like the pimple faced nitwit that you are implying. Many of them are professionals that make way more money than you ever will because they studied hard and see their world threatened. You need to understand that with legislation comes further restrictions for programmers to be able to program certain methods. This limits the capability of VERY important software and can actually impede companies more than help them deter some stupid attack.

These hackers have a message to these companies that is simple. Invest in real security and stop cutting corners and you won't have these problems. In my opinion these "pimple faced" people are doing these companies a favor by exposing their networks weaknesses. People get paid good money to do it and they're doing it for free.

so before you go name calling you may want to think of the underlying messages and actual good that this could do. [SNIP]
