So i gotta ask, is there any reason why this group can’t be taken in on criminal charges? whats the end game to all this?


#2

It’s kinda hard prosecuting them when they’re using other people’s PCs to execute the crimes.


#3

Time issue? Like the magazine?


#4

Hackers are by definition security experts, so its only natural tracking them down is more difficult than your typical criminal.


#5

Its so sad people with such talents waste them


#6

There’s not exactly a lot of talent involved, really. Also, a lot of the people who hack with Anon are security researchers themselves. Additionally, they don’t just hack for the fun of it or for recognition, they’re pushing a social agenda.


#7

The more threatening their activities are to the actual authorities in power, the quicker the response will be. This seems like small potatoes to me.


#8

what kind of social agenda are they pushing taking people’s hard earned money to donate to charity?


#9

That almost happened when they were planning on attacking the Mexican drug cartels. Zetas be on dat ass.


#10

These guys may have met their match. Mexican cartels have no qualms in hiring top notch counter-hackers and merc these guys purely on principle.

Probably recreate a desktop using their appendages and entrails.


#11

They fancy themselves Robin Hood now?


#12

Pretty much

Stick to hacking console networks and family bank accounts, ya fucking losars.


#13

haha at trying to justify their actions by donating to charity and calling themselves robin hoods
