    web page defacement: http://www.blackbergsecurity.us/

    the article mentions a very good point as to why they didnt accept the prize money, their location would be blown that and maybe they just want to flaunt their skill
    even more unsettling is black and berg cybersecurity is endorsing what lulzsec is doing because they get more clients

    This makes no sense at all, except for the lulz. One thing made sense though, them not taking the prize.

    Lol. Okay, I have to admit, I'm starting to become seriously impressed with Lulzsec.

    I love their blunt statement: "DONE, THAT WAS EASY. KEEP YOUR MONEY WE DO IT FOR THE LULZ"

    I came here to say something to that effect. Dunno if it was intended as a trap, but they obviously can't accept the money. If they did, they'd be arrested instantly because of all they've done. [​IMG]

    I'm sure there's an entrapment law against this, but it's often broken in extreme cases, which this is apparently.

    Also, when did this competition begin?

    I'm pretty sure all the hacking they've done and breaching of accounts/personal information, as well as messing with the FBI (affiliate or not) is more than enough to make an exception to the law.

    Kevin Mitnick tweeted earlier that maybe they should have had the money donated ... perhaps to the Bradley Manning defense. That'd been cool.

    It's not entrapment unless the crime in question would not have taken place but for the interference of law enforcement. This isn't entrapment because they were invited to hack the site and they did so in the manner specified. No crime was committed, and therefore no entrapment.

    On the other hand, it is common for law enforcement to use perfectly legal contests and similar methods to locate people that they already have a case against. This is not entrapment because they are not encouraging or soliciting the commission of a crime.

    They admitted earlier today that they had hacked the NHS (that is the National Health Service) servers a few weeks back they even linked to a letter they had sent them pointing out the security flaws and saying they wouldn't do anything with the passwords they had managed to get. And assuring them 'we mean you no harm'. The BBC has now published the story.

    No. No they are not.

    They are an incredibly dangerous hacking group and need to be stopped.
