Privacy, Security, Encryption Oh boy, what do we make of this? We haven't paid that much attention to the whole thing as of yet, but with a recent public statement on why they do what they do, I think it's about time to address this thing. Yes, Lulz Security, the hacking group (or whatever they are) that's been causing quite a bit of amok on the web lately.

High profile criminal behavior

They're basically demonstrating that crime occurs every day, probably without anyone even realizing it...

They're showing just how easily it occurs by publicizing the results from sites that others would have assumed were difficult to hack.

There are two sides to this criminal behavior, however - the despicable people who seek to obtain and abuse this information, and the corporations and IT industry that pretend that they're building "secure" solutions, and convince their superiors and customers that they have done their job properly to begin with.
