Think about it, if a bunch of people who only hack for the lulz can hack into their systems, then a group of dedicated individuals who are seeking to profit from the hacking can definitely do so as well and with far more mischievous intentions in mind.

All these recent hackings should serve as a huge wake up call for companies to improve their security.

This argument hold little merit. If they were doing it for the good of people they never would have released personal information. If they were doing it for the good of the company they would never have told anyone but the company of the data breach. Sure if they were selling information it would be worse, but that doesn't make what they're doing right or even good for that matter. All this will serve to do is create increased regulation and legislation detrimental to the end user. These are simply attention seeking individuals getting off on the amount of press they're recieving. Maybe it's funny to you but the consequences most certainly are not.

Were these guys behind the attack on Codemasters as well? If so they suck cause I had to go and change a number of passwords.

The idea that it is okay to break laws to prove a point is simply stupid. What you are saying is analogous to saying that you approve of school shootings because we need safer schools and school shootings will raise awareness of that.

Sure we need companies to care more for their security but having a group of people with too much time on their hands hacking in and obtaining sensitive data that may or may not be released online or used for malicious intent is not the way to get it. Speak with your wallet not with rogue vigilantism.

Not very analogous.. in school shootings, people are physically harmed/killed. What's happened has already happened and companies need to realize that they are not invincible and do something about it. That is all I'm saying

Just trying to drum up security consulting business. Kind of like a ripoff some body shop guys here in Philly do.

The way it works is this: They will pay a crackhead xxx amount of dollars to take a stolen car (called a wrecker) and pinball off of dozens or even hundreds of parked cars in the middle of the night. If you figure there is only 3 body shops in your immediate area and 300 cars suddenly need bodywork done, even if you get only a small percentage of the business you are going to get flooded with business for weeks or months.

Yeah, people are just that freaking sick and greedy.

Unfortunately beyond this nice side effect is the fact that all of the companies that do wake up will have to spend more money on security. In the end, the expense will end up in the consumers wallet. While "waking up" does seem to be a necessity it does come at a terrible time as most of the world is in a state of recession so any more money that people have to spend will just add salt to an already irritated wound.
