Most of you have probably heard of LulzSecurity, but for those of you who don't, they are the guys who hacked Sony for like the 80th time and released a lot of data publicly. They are renowned for using /b/speak. When they fucked Sony up, it was pretty funny, and I was for them, even though I have a PS3. But, now, they've gone and hacked into cia.gov, senate websites, games and even pronsites, and they have a roaring crowd behind them pressing them on.
I've come to the conclusion that these are no lulzy scriptkiddies having their fun, but are actual terrorists who have come across the ingenius idea of acting like ediots and doing everything "in the name of lulz" so to gain support from the young population of the internet.
The consequences of hacking the CIA if you are found out are very grave, and I refuse to believe that anyone who acts like them would take on such a thing. IMHO, it's just a façade, and holy McFucktits is it working, with more than 211k followers on twitter and many donations been made to them. They could be Middle Eastern, Eastern European, NKorean, etc. and now they have all these sheep backing them up because they want to fit in with the /b/ fad. But what they've done is pretty clever: they've taken on /b/, which could just be a sweeping away of all suspicions.
This is all just my opinion, but if these guys are really who we would picture them; irrational kids with a lot of time and a sense of humour, then they are going to get buttfucked, HARD.
