  1. HBGary Federal, a security company that is helping the FBI track down the hacker group Anonymous, has become a target itself. The group hacked into HBGary's networks and posted archives of some 50,000 e-mails between company executives. The group also hacked the firm's website, publishing an explanation as to why the website was targeted.

    I'm getting very mixed feelings about this Anonymous group.

    Some things aren't right here. The first sentence of this article - anon isn't a hacker group. It CAN take on that form, but that's not its role. It ubiquitous. As such is also has no leader.

    Also the first writing in the screenshot, states domain has been seized under rule #14. This rule is: "Do not argue with trolls - it means that they win." What?

    The Twitter account was hilarious though. :D

    Don't mess with anon. It's like a black guy picking a fight at a klan rally. It's just a really stupid idea.
     
  12. Good job Anonymous guys on Egypt and Tunis, much appreciated.

  14. An apt analogy, given the stupidity, ignorance, and hatefulness of most anonymous members.
     
  15. There's really only one defense left against these guys: buy a dog.
     
  16. Nice!!!...Those dudes r so badass, I love it.
     
  17. anonymous... making boring since 2000something.
     
  18. anon people are nothing more than a bunch of little punk criminals with too much time on their hands. Move out of your mother's basement and get a life that involves something responsible.
     
  19. Hahaha, you are just jelly. Just a whiny little person with little to no reason to live. Please, go follow the rest of the Americans to their slow, amorphously obese deaths. Listen to what the government tells you and don't think anything different, if you do, you may end up on the wrong side of their gun.
     
  20. An inept conclusion, expected out of someone who fails to do his/her research about this group (Wikipedia article is a good place for starters).
     
  21. What bs, a bunch of *****s think they did something special and yet they really did not do anything that a bunch of 12 year old on drugs do all the time.
    so what they can hack a server, probably is hosted and hbg has nothing to do with it.
    now if they wrote the operating system I might be more impressed so they go around playing pissing games with people behind their backs because they too chicken **** to do it in their face

    V for Vendetta basically explains the entire idea of Anonymous. You guys should watch it.

    I bet you couldn't do the same as these people did if random guy started stalking you from over the internet. I doubt these people are actually 12 year olds.
