    Can we please cut the LulzSec crap now? It's been fun and dandy, but the attention you're giving them only pushes them to commit more hacks.

    First it was Anonymous, now it's LulzSec. It's getting sooo last season already.

    I want to seem them try to hack the CIA. Not really because i support what they're doing or support the hacking of the CIA (no comment there), but because i want to know what the CIA would do to them if they did it. [​IMG]

    Honestly don't think hacking the senate will hurt them too much. It's filled pretty much exclusively with politicians full of hot air. They'll probably spend three years arguing back and forth between political parties whether they should sign a document authorizing them to call the cops on them.

    They hacked the F.B.I site already and not much happened yet. Give it a few years though.

    The more hacks they commit the more "traces" they leave behind.

    CIA is an entirely different beast than the FBI. Lulzsec didn't even hack the FBI itself, just an affiliate website from what i heard.

    It surprises me that these organizations aren't even trying to IP track them.
    I know that they're probably using proxies, but c'mon it's the American government, supposedly the most powerful and influential government in the world............

    In the age of DHCP connections, where most computers in the world have a different IP assigned everytime they turn on, IP's are worth s*it.

    I understand the reasoning behind these attacks, and I'm not for or against them. But if the group isn't completely careful--and not that they can be, now that they've started--they may find themselves in an unfair situation in which they lose all rights because "someone" doesn't like what they're doing. And if they don't do their work correctly, this quietning will be quiet, and no one will really know what happened to them.
