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.

RE[6]: Bah - hacking skills

I might suggest though that if the person developing the system is not themselves a hacker or employing hackers they are being negligent in there duties.

So banks should be employing thieves when they design their bank vaults? Having a generally idea about how hacking works is useful, yes, but specific knowledge is worthless for this purpose.

Heck, if your federally employed, FISMA makes it a legal obligation to be responsible and prove your systems secure through proactive testing

Unfortunately this makes your system "better" by trial and error, not by design.

There are lots of law abiding hackers out there to hire or contract.

Obviously I'm not referring to those and also not referring to hackers who hack on code rather than break into systems.
