Here's an article to follow that one up. It's a little less biased and a little more informative.

Yeah, that guy Paul Carr is an arrogant dick. The best parts about articles like this are usually the comments sections.

Even the genuine hacks are barely worthy of the word. Many large organisations use databases with known security holes that can easily be exploited by anyone who has recently completed the first year of a computer science degree: it's no coincidence that so many of these hacker collectives appear towards the end of the academic year.

I would disagree with that. Lulzsec know what they're doing. It was lulzsec who completed this challenge, hacking into a supposedly secure site(and declining the large cash prize).

but when the group's leaders are rounded up it's a fairly safe bet that none of them will turn out to be attractive, outgoing 30-year-old women.

Again, Carr hasn't done the research. According to this article two of the arrested hackers have been women, one 42 and another 20. And then there's kayla who is supposedly a 16 year old girl(although this is the internet so "she's" probably a 40 year old man living in his mums basement).

For that reason, the members of LulzSec are either modern-day versions of Arsène Lupin, Maurice Leblanc's fearless gentleman thief for whom the risk of capture was part of the thrill, or they're absolute, grade A imbeciles (spoiler alert: it's the second one).
Some of them are sure, maybe even the majority, but you only need to hang around anonymous irc for a few hours to see that a fair few of these guys(and gals) are real people that are disenfranchised with the government and the way it does things and have finally found an effective means to do something about it.

EDIT:
Any day now, in Wales or Warsaw or Wasilla, a spotty kid in a V for Vendetta T-shirt will be dragged from his parents' house at gunpoint and bundled – sobbing and pleading that it was all a joke – into the back of a van, only to wake up a week later in Cuba with a rectum that could comfortably accommodate the Large Hadron Collider.


Also I see they've edited this part out, I can't believe it was published in the first place. Seriously Guardian? A rape joke? I expected better of you.

[Sorry for digging up an old post]

I just thought it was funny how one of the members got caught because of hidemyass logs. Such elite hackers lol.
Two rules:
1. I am never wrong.
2. If proven wrong, refer back to rule 1.
