"A torrent of attacks from groups like Anonymous, LulzSec, Goatse Security, and Antisec has made it a busy year for cybercrime investigators. While there are plenty of elusive hackers that will forever manage to outrun the law, the good guys scored some impressive arrests..."

“The UN has said that the information exposed is old data, but if you look at the YouTube video released by the hackers on Monday it shows account details and usernames as well as personal email addresses... so these people could well be compromised at work and at home..."

It seems that much of the recent OP’s like Robin Hood are just dysfunctional ideas. And the videos are getting closer to the jihadi videos that AQ has been putting out over the years. The same graphics, the same music, the same metaphor and rhetoric with a tinge of threat...

Interestingly enough hacktivist groups typically attempt to champion such things as things as privacy and freedom of speech, but seem to have no issue with denying other people the same freedoms. However, who are these individuals to decide who has the right to speak and who does not?

Let me once again talk about Pablo Escobar it took some serious special operators from the US to go down to Columbia and hunt him down. Not geeks behind computers with little bits of data, no, it took guys with guns who were battle seasoned to get Pablo, and he was just as nuts as these guys in Zeta...

This is not an episode of Miami Vice, kids. YOU do not have a nickel plate .45, slip on shoes, and pastel shirts. This is reality and you are more than likely to run up against blackhats who will find you and one by one, these guys will hunt you down...

The Jester had alluded to the fact that he may have actually been physically present at the conference by apparently hiding an encrypted message in one of the conference rooms, tweeting "left a little something under the projector in Alhambra SCADA room. Tweet me a photo of what's there"...

It would seem that Anonymous, Antisec, and LulzSec have already decided to take up the mantle of vigilante’s already. However, the targets have been, for the most part, varied parties that could be seen as hapless victims or as malefactors, it all depends on the point of view really...

Though this does not reflect true "source code", it does provide high-level language which can be re-compiled for another purpose. I reviewed much of the code, and though it did not contain 100% of the Stuxnet functionality, it did contain a large portion of the working malware...

Due to the nature of the site and its being in the hidden wiki (DarkNet) it is tough to know exactly where the systems sit that house/host the content, but, it seems that through certain techniques using TTL, they pretty much have a good idea of where the server may sit in the continental US.

The motivations of DHS have also been called into question by some. This is especially prescient since they take pains to say that the Anonymous movement “most likely” does not have the technical means and motive to really pull of these types of attacks on the infrastructure. So why even bother?

"China. There's a kind of cyber Cold War going on right now. I see it every day. The trouble, he says, is that few are willing to admit it. Most security companies won't come out and say it. The [US] government won't seem to out them for what they're doing either..."

Anonymous’ use of technology comes naturally, as they formed online. It is with the growth of connectivity that the movement went viral. Some may say it was the targeting. I say the targeting was always there, but those who were feeling the miasma weren’t able to express it in normal ways...

Was the attack just a hoax to pique the media? Perhaps another faction striking off on their own? Or was the operation such a complete failure that the Anonymous ringleaders decided they needed to save face by claiming the attack was just a rouse? Probably a little of all of the above...

FUD is a great motivator, and an attack on the NYSE or NYNEX, or any of the players here could have ripples later on. Those ripples would come in the form of people selling off their stocks, companies and corporations as well, and the net effect could potentially be large losses in the market...
