...The logins belonged to members of the local chapter of InfraGard, a public-private partnership devoted to sharing information about threats to U.S. physical and Internet infrastructure...

...In a statement, Lulz Security also claimed to have used one of the passwords to steal nearly 1,000 work and personal emails from the chief executive of Wilmington, Delaware-based Unveillance LLC.

Oops. Embarassed

It is soo bold.

Rip them off. Tell them (and everyone) about it in order to be sure you get proper credit for it, while simultaneously embarrassing and provoking them.

What a bunch of asshats, hackers my ass, nothing but a bunch of immature little jackasses making a bad name for legitimate hackers/programmers. What I really hate is that the news actually calls these guys hackers since they can't differentiate between hackers and crackers.

You must be pretty young. I grew up with different values, I absolutely lump hackers and crackers together on every opportunity that I find. "Hackers are not evil, they're just curious!" Oh, really? Then can I be "curious" and get unauthorized entry to your home too? Can I watch your wife or sister in the shower? Hey, I am just curious! I just seek knowledge!

Mr. Hacker, if you want to earn respect, then first of all get rid of that foolish, childish moniker to begin with. Call yourself a "diletant", "expert", "researcher", "programmer" or something like that. Use a REAL word, goddammit. Stop throwing ridiculous words at this pathetic attempt to look cooler or mo' mawdern than your parents' generation. That's something that acne-ridden teenagers do. Second thing, stop sticking your filthy nose where you have not been invited. There are many, many correct ways to study and learn.

Until then, Mr. Hacker, you're just a punk and deserve to be treated as such. Now get a haircut and a shave, for crissakes! And please stop wearing that short-sleeved T-shirt over a long-sleeved one. You're not 14 anymore, what kind of weird statement are you trying to make with that?!!! Geez, step away, I don't want to be seen too close to you...

@Luluc
Yes I am young, much younger than most people on this forum probably by a few decades.

hack·er/ˈhakər/Noun
1. An enthusiastic and skillful computer programmer or user.

hacker
A person who writes programs in assembly language or in system-level languages, such as C. The term often refers to any programmer, but its true meaning is someone with a strong technical background who is "hacking away" at the bits and bytes.

http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/H/hacker.html

I've no wish to get into a fight about something so trivial though especially with someone who I don't know so goodbye.

"Lulz Security" made me literally lol. Looks like InfraGard got caught with their "gard" down. Nice to see the FBI in bed with such leet cyber-technologists...

What struck me as hilariously ironic is that InfraGard seems to be an association of people who make it their business to tell others (probably for a nice fee) how to prevent just what was done to InfraGard. So in this case I applaud the crackers. Laughing

@Flash
First thank you for acknowledging the difference, I would applaud them for their efforts if they had found the breach and reported it to the company and then after the company fixed the security issues released a statement or whatever of how they breached the site, however they maliciously stole information not only from civilians and government employees but also from military members as if they aren't already stressed out enough all the time without having to worry about their personal information being compromised.

Well, since NSA is probably monitoring every email on the internet, and other such examples of "protecting" us, I guess I can't get too excited about kids hacking (or cracking, whatever) an FBI site. Give 'em a dose of their own medicine, that's the ticket. There are a lot worse things young men can do with their time, like joining the military.

I'm quite happy with LulzSec, they pissed off gamers, which is good in my book.
Also, beneath their blatant juvenile behaviour I consider them to be more mature and perceptive than all kinds of philosophizing wankers.
