Why won't they hack someone who deserves it, like the corrupt Yelp?

Hacking SEGA is about as cool as beating your grandma. Way to be culturally relevant guys. I heard Colecovision's site is easy pickings.

I want them all in prison, getting gang-raped for the rest of their lives.

Prison rape is illegal. You're defeating the logic of your own stance by advocating illegal actions because of your anger at illegal actions. This is exactly what Anonymous does. So unless you are silent or approving of Anonymous then you are being hypocritical.

Well they must of stolen my information because Sega sent me an email saying my account has been compromised.

This does seem to be an ongoing trend, and even if these guys get busted, and the other guys, and the other-other guys, it is just a matter of time before something bad happens on the internet again. I'll bet Xbox Live and Netflix are doubling down on their security measures, and if not, I'd bet they're the next to get attacked.

If they didn't claim responsibility for it then I don't think it was them ... I mean if they claim responsibility for attacking major government agencies then why wouldn't they brag about breaking into SEGAs stuff? I'm with them though, my dreamcast was one BAMF console!  ;)

Because foremost, you do not f*** with Sega. Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo have rabid fanboys, but the Sega freaks are the most dangerous and hardcore of the lot.

Haha hackers destroying other hackers....... Riiiight. Is lulzsec an actual group or just one guy pretending to have friends? I think a person who messes up any website is a major tool. Anytime I hear of a hacker/hack/"programmer" talking tough on the internet it makes me want to punch them in the face. Actually that would be a sweet android app. Problem with some twat on a forum? Fire up your smartphone and punch them in the face!

The Dreamcast IS awesome. Its actually the last console I bought. If Lulzsec is backing Sega, they cant be the bad guys...

LulzSec likes Skyrim and wants it but they hacked Bethesda.  They like thye Dreamcast but they don't hack SEGA and say they will find the destroy the hackers that attacked them?  What?  What is the logic in that?  They hacked Minecraft, EVE, and League of Legends for no reason but they want to get thehackers of SEGA.  Sheesh.  These people are morons.

They didn't hack Minecraft, EVE or LoL, they DDoSed them. They even had a reason. The reason being they were asked to by their 'fans'. They hacked Bethesda and tried to get details about Skyrim by 'blackmailing' them, however they said they would be gentle becuase they enjoyed Call of Cthulu. Maybe their love for the Dreamcast outshines their love for Call of Cthulu. Maybe, given enough time, they would have hacked SEGA, they were just beaten to it and they want to take down whoever did it anyway. Who knows. They're assholes, but they're not morons.

Well put.

The internet is hardly convinced it was LulzSec, as LulzSec have no reason to say it wasn't them. Why the hell would they take responsability for hacks like Sony and Senate.gov but not for SEGA?

 

Crappy media outlets might think it was LulzSec, purely because 1. They only heard about LulzSec from someone else and actualy have no idea what it is, and 2. They do not check LulzSec's twitter. But other than that, I don't think anyone with a brain capable of producing individual thought is 'pretty convinced' that it was LulzSec.

 

Boo.
