Anonymous: 10 Things We've Learned In 2013

The Anonymous hacker group continues to seek equal measures of revenge, justice and reform -- preferably through chaotic means -- for perceived wrongdoings.

After numerous sentencing postponements -- at the request of the FBI and Department of Justice -- Sabu, 29, was due to be sentenced at the end of February 2013. But that court date was again postponed, without apparent explanation.

But it turns out that the cause is simple: Sabu is continuing to help authorities. Indeed, according to court documents seen by Ars Tecnica, the sentencing hearing was postponed to Aug. 23, 2013 "in light of the defendant's ongoing co-operation with the government."

Sabu's continuing cooperation has led some to suggest that he might be let off with a suspended sentence, and without having to serve jail time.

Great article but I have to agree with Leo, I dislike reading these articles for that reason alone. All though the topics are of interest, I donGÇÖt have the patience. I also have to disagree with Jonathan on his views on people and their awareness about their online security. I believe because of all the attacks and breeches and the general publicGÇÖs knowledge is constantly increasing, which was the exact opposite in the past.

I hadn't heard of this Rustle League incident before. Hackers hacking hackers. I wonder if all of the news surrounding hacking and cybercrime lately could put a big enough dent in people's trust in the internet to actually change people's behavior. Will people start taking their individual online security more seriously? Personally, I doubt it. I feel like we have already developed a sort of blind trust in the internet because it makes our lives so convenient that we don't even want to consider what would happen if our online credentials were compromised.
