Once again, you know nothing. Maybe Masked posts will make you understand that you're simply wrong. It is IMPOSSIBLE to hire enough people, and with enough time to time scour over every single line of code in every single software application a company uses, ensure every single machine connected to their network is 100% secure, and ensure that every person using those machines knows how to maintaing a 100% secure environment. Just use your mind for a second and think how many hackers there are simply trying to exploit software like Internet Explorer. Certainly many many many more than you can possibly employ to secure your network. Now multiply that by the many pieces of software running on the network and it is common sense to see that you're mistaken. Add to that number again the number people in the company using the network that aren't following 100% secure practices. There are nearly infinitely possible ways to gain some sort of unintended access.
I'm trying not to resort to personal insult but you are making it really hard seeing as you are freely using them, in quite the hypocritical manner.
Where did I say that white hats secretly store info? I'm saying that black hats would not have declared what they hacked, and used it in secret. Thus, lulz are not black hats, but rather grey hats.
Thus you see, the misunderstanding and ignorance are stemming entirely from your behalf.
I'm well aware of what they are, and what they have done. Just because they say who they hacked doesn't make them not malicous
Please, try to justify that they aren't malicous, I'd really like to see you try.
That hole's getting deeper son.
