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.

To be fair, they could be those things, even if we disagree with their judgment.

True but unlikely.

Having hacking skills sure helps though. I'm not sure why someone would think otherwise?

Ranum explains this much better than I ever could:

If anything, these are skilled people who are probably under-appreciated when using their skills productively, and have turned to an underground culture where they can be appreciated.

That's a really lame excuse and it's just confirms that these people are indeed assholes.
