There are several reasons none of us should show support for LulzSec:
1) They do not actually care who they hack or who has the deal with the consequences of their actions. They do not actually operate like a normal
hacking group. They operate on a public level, announcing their hacks and getting community involvement. They are what I would call "show hackers",
and they are the worste kind of show hackers. Their attacks have no clear motivation or intention half of the time, it's all just for the "lulz". You
may think LulzSec is fighting for your freedoms by targeting the real bad guys, but they are not targeting the real guys, let alone doing it for the
right reasons. One of their latest projects is to hack government agencies and release damaging classified files. That is clearly their way of putting
a little sugar icing on the charcoal cake.
2) Everything they do gives the Government more and more reason to crack-down on the internet, and it also gives them the proof and public support
they need to do it. We don't often see hacking groups like this because most of them know to stay in the shadows, and they don't target massive
entities for no clear reason, while in the process creating problems for thousands of innocent people; real hackers have more decency and wisdom than
that. Furthermore, LulzSec has been connected to Project Honey Pot by members such as Boondock-Saint. If you really care at all for the internet and
creating good change, instead of the change we don't want, then you will demand this group show some real initiative instead of senseless hacking;
otherwise don't support them.
3) They are already
using this recent series if massive profile hacks to cast an insidiously negative light upon hackers, meanwhile promoting
more internet regulation laws. I am already seeing extended news stories in the Australian mainstream media that are doing exactly what I am
describing here. They are playing it for everything it's worth and if so many people continue to show support for this group it will give us a bad
image. We need to show some common sense, and beat them at their own game
. You need to see past the disinformation, deconstruct it, analyze it,
and build your defenses to resist their infection. There's more going on than meets the eye here. This is the digital era, and the control over
information, and the flow of information, is absolutely key.
Here's a little poem I wrote for the occasion:
The misinformation will astound you.
The disinformation will confound you.
Just look around, it's hard to find solid ground.
The truth is buried in a profound mound of inaudible white sound.
