      lol thats just lame isnt it, they hack sony and brag, but dont want to brag and apologise for hacking nintendo.

      i dont get how you hack the wrong company in the first place, sony and nintendo pretty hard to mix up.

      hacking is a sport, sony fucks over consumers so they are fair game. nintendo however would be like shooting the neighbours dog.

      they obviously thought just targeting sony was giving others an easy ride, and thought to test their security too, and obviously found Nintendo's stood up to simple SQL injections, unlike Sony's

      (looks at sony stocks).... probably not so good :rolleyes:

      It's a good thing for the hacking community that they show they are not really interested in harming consumers, at least this group has shown that, because as much as I enjoy and believe in the means I can't really defend whoever leaked customer info. Now I still get a kick out of it (even if my info was leaked as well), but I'm just saying it was probably best to do something else. In the end I'll look at the glass as being "half full" because not only did they royaly screw sony, I think governmental agencies will require more protection for consumers from these service providers.

      After some further reading... these guys have been BUSY! and either they're very confident or they have no clue about accountability... going after FBI affiliates? either too much cojones, or not enough brain cells is the only way to explain that.

      Come on now. I know my spelling and grammar is weak (never denied it). But at least give credit for trying to add some hot topic news to a slow day. Zues didn't do this thread, so cant blame him. I often make typos in titles and admins have to come behind me and fix it.
      But atleast i tried to add a hot story.

      They remind me of the matrix movies. Everyone is living in a imaginary world not know what really goes on. They bounce in and out of stuff exposing the internet for how bad it can be and unsafe.

      @msanchez
      I was reading their twitter earlier and these guys are scary. I don't ever recall seeing a group so powerful and blatant about using that power. They are like the sith of the internet. I would not be shocked to see them land jobs with a government agency when this is all said and done.
      I just read where some British (i think could be a different region) hackers, hacked terrorist and changed how to make bombs into how to make cupcakes (lol.. thats what made me think of these guys). But like that 1 hacker sony wanted to hire and he turned them down. I can see these guys landing government jobs.

      In the very least they should be the main plot character for a movie! Ive always said some where, someone is gonna make a movie about all this. These guys are making history. People thought anonymous was dangerous. remember the story where sonys tech people said "just ignore hackers and they get bored and leave". These are the hackers who get bored and attack again.

      I read MI6 did the cookie thing, something about the CIA blocking a US cyber intelligence agency's attempts to sabotage the magazine because it could give away something or other... well anywho, I was LOL-ing pretty hard when I heard that.

      And to be honest you can't compare Koush (the hacker sony contacted) to these guys, I mean they definitely don't have the same goals. While I have no doubts he could be as devious as they are, I've seen the guy over at the xda forums and he doesn't strike me as the type that would do stuff like this.... despite how much they deserve it.

      NO i didnt mean that guy would do something like this. But i ment more if sony was willing to give him a job. These guys are def gonna get some high profile jobs. Its not uncommon for someone to hire hackers event governments. I would think these guys will def get hired by someone. Where does governments find the hackers they hire. I would guess from high profile jobs. They guys are as high profile as it gets right now.

      Decent, the flaw they discovered lead to no leaks and Nintendo were monitoring their systems, saw the problem and fixed it anyway. Meanwhile in Russia where Other OS installs you, Sony pictures has been found vulnerable marking the 14th site vulnerable to the same attack and the 14th site Sony should have fixed in advance. Sony shares, Now down another 3%!

      FAIL!

      Edited: Will look at the post as commented below and fix what I see.

      Fixed it already, unless I missed something? Not very impressed with what was on offer though, unless there's a part two to the conference like last year, Microsoft has left me very underwhelmed.

      second part was good. they pull out announcements for their big name games.
      The first half i saw was mainly about entertainment. The second half was almost all about games. Of course they are still driving home how kinect is cool. But still none the less alot of games.

      I wanna talk about this stuff but dont wanna spoil the video for anyone.
