    Not sure, but didn't the WBC essentially set up a trap? I thought they were trying to lure Anonymous folks into trying to attack their site, and hopefully catch and turn over info to authorities. I may be mistaken on that though...

    I'm not sure what to think of Anonymous, but I do know they can do some real damage when they want to. Look at what happened to HBGary Federal. Hacked email, deleted files, took their phone system offline. And they're a security company. If anyone was well protected from a cyber attack, you'd think it would have been them.

    They were hilariously poorly set up for anything. They got in by guessing the guy's gmail password (because it was really, really obvious) and then emailing their network admin asking him what the root password was. And he gave it to them, because the boss had made requests like that in the past and gotten ****** if the admin wouldn't tell him over e-mail.

    By far, the biggest vulnerability in any security scheme is people.

    Typically I'm against Anonymous and what they do, but in this case I'll make an exception.

    It doesn't matter if you are against Anonymous, that statement is like saying you are against gravity. You don't have to believe in it for it to beechslap you back to rotary dial telephones.

    Re: Westboro Baptist Church took on the wrong people.

    I haven't had a chance to read the link. What exactly did they do to Westboro? Take down their website? Something else?

    To me, anything short of wiping them out for good isn't enough.

    Anon rules and as they say are just in it for the lulz. Loved the HBGary fiasco and the Westboro stuff is the icing on the cake.

    Re: Westboro Baptist Church took on the wrong people.

    Knowing some people that are most certainly "Anonymous" yeah, scary smart and not people you want to tick off.

    That said, I am vehemently against Westboro and are a stain on the christian community and part of me was glad to see them mess with the bull, and happy to see them get the horns.

    Anonymous hacks Westboro Baptists during live interview • The Register

    Anon said the supposed threat against WBC came from "nowhere" and didn't match its writing style. He said attacks against WBC sites were the work of Jester. Phelps-Roper, who kept interrupting the Anon member, said everyone for Anonymous was going to hell. After eight minutes into the interview the Anon member posted its own statement on downloads.westborobaptistchurch.com.
    The statement, headed "This domain has been seized by Anonymous under section #14 of the rules of the Internet", derides the Church for attempting to "goad" Anonymous into attacking it for describing them as "crybaby hackers". The statement went on to say Anonymous had bigger fish to fry, such as campaigns involving Libya and managing the fallout from its hack against HBGary.
    "Take this defacement as a simple warning: go away," the statement (screenshot here) concludes. "The world (including Anonymous) disagrees with your hateful messages, but you have the right to voice them. This does not mean you can jump onto Anonymous for attention."
    Watching the duo square up was akin to watching two wrestlers trash talk each other prior to a carefully orchestrated fight, as can be seen from a video clip from the Pakman show below.


    Asteroids are nature's way of asking "How's that space program going?"
