These guys are not helping in any way. If they want to help, they should simply inform these companies of the faults and not release customer information or crash their networks. Almost any network can be cracked. You guys are making it seem like anyone can break into these networks. Any network can be compromised by someone who is dedicated and skilled enough. These kids have nothing better to do than to sit around, drink redbull and crack codes all day. I wish the US WOULD send some kind of military team to these people's houses, cut all their network connections, smash their computers and put these delinquents in JAIL where they belong.
Again, no one elected an Internet Enforcement Team of rag tag volunteers to wrangle up these out of control business. If you're likening these guys to some kind of heroes, you need to seriously grow up and think about the ramifications that their actions will lead to.
Yes because with the unemployment rate of +15% we need to waste resources on finding some "kids" (highly doubtful) because they are making companies realize that they have lax security.
What's funny is companies pay millions/billions for network security each year, these guys are doing it free of cost. Now mind you they don't have the most orthodox way of going about doing it but these companies should thank them.
Also, I have a huge suspicion that these guys also are government operatives. It's too much of a coincidence that all this stuff is happening when congress is trying to pass internet regulation bills.
Also, for those of you who call for violence on these people because "they deserve it" and have the nerve to talk about a moral compass, take a good look in the mirror before passing judgement so quickly. As your turn for judgement will come one day and you will regret those that you cast away without fair judgement.
