i dont condone hacking to the extent they took it, but you have to see it this way, with out the hackers out there that do it for the good of it(ie white hack hackers) this kind of stuff would end up happening more. but at the same time for someone to break into a computer digitally like lulzsec/anon and other black hat hackers do being put in jail for longer then the sick scums out there molesting kids or murdering people is kinda sad. im in canada, and like my ex's neice was killed by there mother cause she would rather go out and hang out with her friends and drink and leave her kid at home in the middle of summer by her self and her kid died because of heat exaustion and she got a 2 years jail time but after a year was given parole because she was a "model" inmate. or the austrialian woman who drowned her 2 sons and was deported rather then jailed. im sorry but since when does breaking into a computer worth more then a human life. i understand that yeah peoples personal information was released to public and possibily used. i have never had this happen to me but im pretty sure id be mad but id more then deffinatly would rather see a person who killed someone or molested kids put behind bars for a lot longer then someone who broke into my computer or a computer that has my personal information on. my personal information can be fixed. a person who was killed cant be brought back to life and that effects more people then just having there credit messed with.

I agree with you on the point that people who commit serious crimes should be facing harder time, but I don't think you grasp the full extent to how devastating hacking has become, especially on this level. The civilized world as a whole has become extremely dependant on computers. Cyber warfare has become a new battlefront on which entire nations fight on now. I'm in the military myself and have seen and heard about some attacks that could (and in some cases have) setback a country's enitre economy, development, and several aspects of it's infastructure. I'm sorry that such young people will more than likely miss out on what could of been the best parts of their lives, but committing crimes like this and stamping "activisum" on it (especially with the talent they have it could of been done in a right leagal way) was just wrong. If you read up on case more from a military stand point - they were doing something that could of effected millions on a grand scale. I do hope that they can get off easy and maybe get less time, but I'd be very surprised if they did and part of me would even be a little worried.

Sorry guys i still cannot look at them as Crusaders - not after my credit card got hacked due to my Playstation info being compromised.

no issues until then and the only place it was listed. - and i am tired of hearing that it is the company's fault.

that's like telling me that it is the banks fault if they get robbed because 5 people with shotguns come in and shoot up the bank and steal the cash.

no excuse for this mess- they should have been doing something righteous not this

Sabu has apparently been communicating with Sanguinarious recently. Posted up on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/eYpZ0bDf. No idea who dumped the chat logs, but contacting Welna was probably not the wisest ideas Hector has had lately...his interweb transgressions should probably be limited to lolcats, so as not to tick off his handlers, but judgement day for him is apparently still on the gov agenda.

Additional logs out there, if you're looking in the right places. If it ain't actually Sabu, it was a really, really freakingly awesome impersonation of him by someone who studied him just a little too much...

Might as well just take off their heads and stick them on pikes like they used to do in the old days as a warning to others, right?

Or why not torture them first before beheading them for such a heinous crime?

Welcome to reality, where common sense has all but left the stage unfortunately.

KenLV

No, Delta, I'm happy with a 10 year sentence. Thanks for the suggestion - though I find the death penalty a bit extreme for this crime. But hey, you're entitled to your opinion.

How, in your mind, is a 10 year prison sentence the same as chopping people's heads off and putting them on pikes? Cyber criminals should be justly punished, what is wrong with that?

avatar

Zstreek

Couldn't agree more. We need to send a message that this kind of activity has to stop.

When you act as judge, jury and executioner, it's eventually going to bite you in the ass.

Remember when these guys said they couldn't be caught? You'd think computer savvy hackers would know better (then again, they are probably just script kiddies without a clue).

It takes a loser to know one. Sooner or later someone is going to get even with Westboro Baptist Church and burn it to the F'N ground!!! It would be a fitting end for that bunch of Anti-American, Racist, Homophobic, Jesus Freak idiotic morons named Phelps. LulzSec proved that all the F'N idiots at Westboro Baptist Church, Sony, Bethesda, Eve Online, CIA, FBI, 20th Century Fox, Nintendo, News International, and Arizona state police in the U.S. are nothing but LulzSec bitches!!! Now I'm sure that my opinion probably means nothing here but to be honest does it really matter? This is simply a honest response. I don't feel sorry in the least for the companies or groups listed above as they had it coming for thinking that they run the world. You haters need to GET IT IN YOUR HEADS that places like ThePirateBay, KAT, etc will NEVER be stopped no matter how much the F'N government and Hollywood morons think they can stop them. F-ck the FEDS. 10 years for what? proving a lax security flaw??? I got $1000 that says they get 1 year or less all of them!!! :D

Hmmm... let me see if I've got this right. According to your kindergartner logic of "It takes one to know one!" (which I believe is a offshoot of the oft used "I know you are, but what am I?" defense): "The MAC" must be a loser since he correctly identified these lulz fools as the losers that they are.

If you believe that to be so, I posit that you must then consider yourself to be an "Anti-American, Racist, Homophobic, Jesus Freak, idiotic, moron, F'N idiot, bitch, hater"

I feel bad for you. I mean it's one thing for others to think of you that way, but for you to have such a low opinion of yourself (however true it may be) is just plain sad.

You are right though "[your] opinion means nothing". Thanks for stopping by though!

BTW you couldn't even post under your regular handle you pussy? Had to setup a new account. Be a man, stand up for what you claim you believe. So fail.

As far as setting up a new account this website didn't recognize my old user name so I created a new one. You're the one who FAILS!!! NOT me!!! UNLIKE you I don't support the ripoff scumbag MAFIAA whiners in Hollywood, MPAA, RIAA, BSA, etc. As a matter of fact IF you don't like it I don't give a rat's ass. LONG LIVE Anonymous, LulzSec, THE PIRATE BAY, KICKASS TORRENTS, USENET, FTP, TOR, Darknet, Deep Web, 4chan, VPN's, ETC. IF you know who that snitching rat piece of sh-t Joe Morganelli of the Morganelli Group is its only a matter of time until someone, somewhere on the internet gets fed up with his pathetic F'N BullSh-t and silences his snitching punk ass permanently. I hope someone teaches his punk ass a lesson he will NEVER forget because when it happens I'm going to laugh my ass off. Snitches get stitches and end up in ditches like dead bitches cause that is what all scumbag snitching rats deserve. Not even oinker cop pigs like snitches. See ya.

This is a Good magazine here and I've been reading it for years but some of you people here are nothing but shills for the entertainment industry. SAD but TRUE..........................

Interesting. To sum up your position (that you so eloquently put forth):

You find the idea of jail time for thieves and (any?) criminal abhorrent but think that DEATH is the applicable "punishment" for those that report them.

LAWL.

Thanks for the shits and giggles. You sound like a perfectly rational person. I'm sure you will succeed in whatever you decide to do once you move out of your parents' basement.

you are correct, your opinion means nothing.

They are criminals.

You choose to enable them.

Your opinion in worthless.

SO is yours and by the way: MAC's SUCK!!! Intel based Core I7 3960 extreme cpu PC's PWN all Macs always have always will when it comes to gaming and other things. PROVE ME WRONG IF YOU CAN..................

avatar

The Mac

I dont own a mac, so clearly you reasoning skills are suspect as well.

Society operates on shared goals.

If you choose to function outside those goals you are an anarchist/anti-establishment/criminal and your opinions and arguments will always be marginalized.

Get used to it. God knows ive already marginalized you.
