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

The list of promised Anonymous operations that never panned out, such as a takedown of Facebook and Zynba, grew to include the threatened Valentine's Day website massacre of the Goldman Sachs website. The threat was reportedly triggered by Huw Pill, a chief economist at Goldman, suggesting that France lower its wages to increase workforce competition.

Revenge yes, justice only their own eyes, and reform only to remake the world to comform their ideas.

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.
