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.

Most of you reading this love the idea of wrecking someone else's online experience anonymously.


No, not really. Most people grew out of that phase after puberty.

And that's all there is to it, that's what appeals to our Internet generation.

I"m really happy I'm not part of the segment of that generation these guys represent.

Lets call these guys what they are, immature assholes with zero ethics who's looking to make a name for themselves.
