    its not about getting the customer info, its about showing these companies ****** *** security to the public. its more like they want the people to know that the people they put in charge of their private info is as useful as cable tv. and thats pretty damn useless.

    I've been following them for a while. It start as ethical protest hacks on goverment sites in Turkey, Brazil and others where they are trying to pass laws to censor certain websites from being accessed. Similarly to what China does. Their other hacks have been mostly against companies and governments for other laws. They hacked Arizona police in protest of the Immigration Law.
    Now why they hit apple i'm not sure. They have slowly moved into just able hacking anything for who knows why. I know they got AT&T information showing information on the new iPad on their 4g network.

    remember we are giving these companies all our private information and they are not taking the security measures to protect us. if anything they are showing that we shoouldn't trust big business with our information.

    If these clowns want to hack just to satisfy their curiosity then I'm fine with that. But when these scumbags start disseminating innocent user account information then they've crossed the line. I can understand these guys wanting to know what Steve's up to or what the specs of the next iPhone are, but these are the same miscreants that have no problem stealing and freely sharing private user details. If these guys have no problem with violating our privacy then I have no problem with Nasty Nate violating their privacy in prison once they get caught.

    If the hackers can open the Apple server, nice, they can remotely unlocked all the iPhone. It's nice though......

    So by your logic this site and it's readers should be of the "f**k anyone who isn't Apple" mentality?

    You can like Apple and still not be stupid and/or a Fanboy. Hard to believe I know.

    what I want to know is why dont these hackers actually do something useful like hack terrorists and help get them exposed and or killed. i mean these hackers are mortal and if they get killed by a terrorist attack it would prob ruin their day too like any other non-1337 ***orz.

    Having worked on ethical disclosure kinds of things myself, I can tell y'all a rather hard truth: many companies and government agencies don't particularly care about their security outside of their most important "proprietary/R+D/State Secret" stuff.

    With a few exceptions, it usually takes a massive embarrassment to get the company interested in fixing stuff.

    Think of it this way: with these very public displays of sensitive information, the affected know what's coming and have a bit of heads-up. There's public proof for their banks, the credit agencies, etc. that their information was leaked by no fault of their own. An evil blackhat hacker would bust in, stealthily collect everything, then use it very quietly for their own nefarious personal gain. The victim wouldn't know what hit them until well after the damage was done and the attacker was long gone.

    Frankly, it's not interesting at all. Unfortunately it is important.
