I've always thought of hackers as creators of computer viruses, the high-tech "rock through the window." These guys, however, might actually be useful. I sure hope so, nothing else seems to be working.

Although illegal, such actions like this I think constitute civil disobedience. Fortunately, no super sensitive material was leaked or economically catastrophic actions taken.

Oh great, not only can we not secure and control our own government business and entities, keep foreign techs (smarter, more dedicated in purpose, and hell-bent on our ruin), now we have such unnamed festering sub-groups as Anonymous, LutzSecurity and their smaller sub-groups expanding in memberships. With vague and unclear accountability, responsibility, etc. we will continue to erode not only from the outside in but from the inside out. Enjoy.
