[CNET] Exclusive: CEO says hackers tried to extort data, money - Page 5

post #41 of 63
If you wanted o urn p[ublic appeal you'd make the hackers sound horrible. Money extortion and blackmail. That sounds bad doesn't it?

These guys know what they're doing and are not stupid enough to think that a money transfer to an anonymous account couldn't be traced somehow.

No no no. They are only telling half of the story. LulzSec was trying to expose the corruptness of executives in todays world. They were trying to get him in a corner (which they did) and show the world how pathetic and corrupt people are (which they also did, the news site just didn't post that part.) On their site, they have the IRC chat log, and Karim asking the hackers to take information and hack other companies for money. LulzSec was never interested in money. Go to their site, its actually pretty funny.

and we found WMD's in Iraq too, didn't we?

I think it's interesting how everyone rushes to defend Anonymous and Lulzsec when really all they're doing is pushing the community "at large" towards internet law.

Please, hack more so ALL internet can be regulated and controlled...

The more and more people defend hackers...The closer and closer we inch.

These hacker groups are really starting to over step. Who are they to decide what's moral and what's right on the internet? Who are they to declare what CEO is corrupt and what big corporation needs to be "taught a lesson"? I don't remember any of us electing an Internet Police Squad to go around "Team America" style policing up the evil corporate big shots who spit on us poor little guys. What they're doing is no more just or moral than some mob boss trying to collect money and I do hope that someone catches them and puts an end to all this online vigilantism.

I don't see any reason for Internet law. All that these hacker groups are showing is how vain and cheap Corporates are, and how they will so freely put their customers personal data into high risk for fraud situations. It is all because the Corporates want more cash in their own pockets to they can buy their new Bentleys, play their noontime golf, have their high priced hookers and expensive wines. They care so little for the customers. Customers are nothing more than a flock of the unworthy that are harvested for their cash.

If Corporates were actually responsible, they wouldn't be posting sensitive information in unencrypted forms on public access networks. If Bankers did this, their would be a mound of cash sitting in front of a bank, because all of the money for vaults and security was spent on their caviar encrusted prostitutes that they spend the night with.

People defend hackers not because of the hacking, but because it shows exactly how little respect that Corporates have for their customers. I mean, it is already self evident when you go into a store and get the business - but another thing for Corporates to so shamelessly abuse the trust of their customers. Any "Internet Law" should have mandatory penalties, including hard labour and being stripped of all money and property, for any Corporate that puts short term profit and corruption as priorities in front of security of the sensitive personal information of their customers. Same with our legislators - legislators who work so hard to create this mess in the first place.
