So... I'm sure you've heard of LulzSec. If you haven't, they're hacking and leaking stuff (http://lulzsecurity.com/releases/).

The question this week time period is: Do you agree with hacking for what they're doing? (Lulz and Security)


(Comments and debates welcome)

US government's gonna tear them apart. At the very least one could argue it exposes security flaws. Data leakage I think personally is bang out of order.

Never was particularly fond of them, seemed rather stupid (and very badly done to "expose security flaws" - releasing lots of data is not good practice). Now they're just DDoSing, which is pathetic.

I'd be okay with it if they were just hacking people who deserve it, but they hacked Minecraft and I just don't understand why.
I don't really see the Lulz.

Wasn't even a hack, it was just a straight up DDoS. Which is especially stupid seeing as Minecraft is renowned for DDoSing itself. "Hey, look at us, we DDoSed this small indie dev who regularly DDoSes themselves!"

Also failing to see how any of it is remotely funny.

Bioware have suffered some potential user data lifting now: http://kotaku.com/5812498/bioware-hacke ... ompromised

Not sure if it was LulzSec though.

Wynney, at first they were actually hacking and stuff, but now they're just DDoSing relatively small game servers - LoL, Minecraft, EvE-O login servers.

hacking, making work for people and disrupting enjoyment of a payed for service cant be anything but bad.

Couple of good points here. Just because you don't know whats being hacked doesnt mean it isnt.

But Hacking and then telling doesn't make it better or legal. It's still bad, it's still annoying and it's still not funny.

So?
People get hacked all the time, it's nothing new. You're a complete idiot if you're on the internet and think your information is 100% safe.
Atleast other hackers don't run around going:
"OOH LOOK AT US! WE GOTS YOUR PERSONAL INFO! TORLOLOLOLOLO
WE CAN TAKE DOWN GAEM SERVERS CUZ WERE SOOO SMART AND LULZY!"
