    They say this about all LulzSec's supposed "members". If they say one of them got caught then authorities will know they're on to something.

    Whatever, I have a feeling they're getting closer.

    As much as their antics where probably in some way a needed kick up the arse for a lot of people and companies, I think unfortunately as long as at least 1 member remains free enough to pass on ownership of the Twitter account, irc channels, etc there will always be people willing to take the risks to be in LulzSec.

    EDIT: And they'll never admit they are new members or that they where needed.

    they have proved companies shouldn't be so uptight about spending money on the latest stuff

    all they care about is the money in there pocket

    they should spend it on making the company more secure and better for staff


    news comes from more than one place

    And this kiddies is why we shred the census form and don't open the door to strangers with ONS name tags on. [​IMG]

    Well that is why you'll get fined and those who actually give a shit about their country and aren't totally paranoid conspiracy theorists will probably be in line for compensation if this is true.
