Look, I’m all for hacking into systems to prove weaknesses in the systems. Or when companies are obviously behaving badly and need a kick in the nuts (see Sony). But it is a bit irritating when you guys take down services that my lifestyle depends on. Or ride on the coattails of real hackers. Or claim that what you do is really what the rest of the Black Hat community does.
So it’s no surprise someone attacked the LulzSec dudes. I think that there are people who personally view LulzSec as having big heads now, and they needed to be knocked down a peg. Which is cool and stuff. It’s kind of a wake up call – “Hey, while you were out knocking down stuff we came along and knocked down your stuff. What you do is not art, or even close to real hax. Just sayin’ lolz.”
Nothing wrong with Hacker Warz, honestly. Having sat on the Black Hat side for awhile, I know for a fact that LulzSec was more of a hobby for some random people who think they are real hackers. You can’t win respect for claiming fame. IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY.
