No, see, it's okay to attack that website about the program for disabled people, because it's a government-run website!

Especially since it's not a public service in the slightest bit the way they are doing it. If negatively affects the public is all it does.

Haha.

That seems uncalled for. After all, Everyone Mobile Games (My Body Science Series).

I agree. Touting what they do as some sort of public service is silly.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 10:16:04 AM PST
Heh, those ones certainly did.

"Will it? Do Anon hacks frequently lead to the hacked companies improving their security measures?"

Admittedly, not always. It depends on how much dealing with the aftermath of the attack disrupts the institution's operations and profit. I have a feeling that the PSN hacks had that effect, yes :)

I don't know anything about hacking systems but if I was one that could get into these companies I would rather use my skills for good. Setup a meeting with them and show how easy it is to hack their system so then they can pay you to help fix their system. You get paid and they have a better system.

The Anonymous issue is kind of a touchy...

First of all, they don't have a central goal or ideology so you can't say you agree with them or disagree with what they're doing. Some of the members may have nothing but positive goals (like making sure illegal activities are uncovered, etc) where as others are merely out for profit or mayhem. The only thing they really have in common is that they enjoy hacking.

In a way though, they are a necessary evil in the modern world. Without struggle, without conflict there can be no evolution, and our current defenses against cybercrime are pitiful. Every time one of the Anonymous crew (be it the "good" ones or the "bad" ones) invades a system, it helps the White Hats out there to develop countermeasures. Obviously, this little dance will go on forever (much like an arms race) but the goal is to make sure that each subsequent intrusion leads to smaller and smaller gains for the hacker.

I have a paypal account, so this attack directly affects me, but I understand that the end result is that Paypal will be more cautious and secure in the future.

I was in the shower in Iraq when all of that went down. My hands are clean.

Except me. I was in the shower when you all effed up me world.

if someone !@#$'s in your bed without your consent, you are not guilty for it.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 9:11:01 AM PST
We are all guilty for the world we have made.

Frankenzubaz says:
"good enough ratings", yeah based on how much crap the people who advertised on that show sold the next day? Or do they still have Nielsen families? I'm unclear on how "ratings" work.

We might not suck because Jersey Shore was from here, but we do suck because Jersey Shore got good enough ratings to stay on the air as long as it did and become culturally relevant.
