Heres an interesting article I came across between studying for finals. In this case it's the government hacking the activists rather than vise-versa.

The final war of humans- waged with geeks desperately pounding the keyboard as they type in for what seems the millionth time another directory... :D

This is a flawed tactic. Not the hacking part, but showing your target your methods. This is the very reason why the authorities are behind the power curve in this game. Let's take a very effective technique and just broadcast it out. Look at the informant wearing a wire, or phone tapping. Eventually that stuff gets out but it goes down real fast when you replay their own conversation to them obviously broadcasting your abilities...
