There's been a few bits and peices that point at someone on the governmental side providing some type of support. I know people are saying they're script kiddies, but I really don't think so. More like B-team Anonymous wannabes that work for a paycheck.

That all this was going down as internet kill switch bills were making their way through congress is just a tad bit suspicious, as is the Bradley Manning set-up artist's name showing up on lulz domain registrations -- perhaps a joke, perhaps not, but 100% peculiar and suspicious.

Also, in the hacker community it had been reported sometime in the past week that Anon hacked and knew exactly who lulz was, but chose to not expose them. Perhaps they worked in a more subtle way (i.e. go away, or we will.)

For the past 50 days  ( 4.3e15 nanoseconds ) these pussies have been doing whatever their masters have told them to do, with whatever freebies they were given, while pretending to be something that they never were. 

Good riddance to bad bullshit.

You have to pay up now. Assange is now a hollywood star, but you can still be one of the lucky fanbois who get to spend a night with him:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290576762574

This is your chance at being one of eight people to dine with WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange and renowned Slovenian philosopher, Slavoj Žižek.

The lunch will be from 12 - 3pm on Saturday 2nd July at one of London's finest restaurants. The meal will be followed by a Frontline Club event (http://www.frontlineclub.com/events/2011/07/announcing-frontline-club-ex...) from 4pm - 6pm at The Troxy in East London where these two formidable forces will be discussing the impact of WikiLeaks on the world and what it means for the future.

Slavoj Žižek is a ponce. Assange is an Aussie asswipe. Anyone who thinks these two are in any way influential are badly misinformed.

this is a pretty good point. There are some many protocols and services that do get pulled into hardware there is a true risk in this. The test carts to explore every possible back door on a 10+ Million transistor chip would be hella complex. Then you got ask youself are the chips that you are using to ron the certifications also back doored ....

Their final blow was "outing" AZ state's rights on illegal immigration?

How more pro-Obama could a hacker group be?

This was (and all the others to come) a government run psy-op.

Yeah, I just saw that AZ piece.  So, a hacker group that is supposedly on the side of good, yet they are against the US maintaining border security.  Their "goodby manifesto" is so rambling, you can't tell what direction their moral compass is pointing.  I think its the new 21st century style - have a set of random beliefs that you can get all smarmy annd self-righteous about, but without the need to present a rationally cohesive framework for your "dogma."  Their propaganda smells like the bullshit the commies used to spew out in the 80's.

They are children hiding in adult bodies hiding in their college dorms never to escape. Outside looking in. Clearly, what they have written displays signs of a tantrum to gain attention.

Tee he he. Oops! Got spooked by the cops?

Perhaps highly educated in the field of computer geek and likely have been jerking off to various porno cyber ops since they first discovered pubic hair. Stole a pack of gum at age 10 and got a rush. Been hooked on being bad ever since. Useful idiots playing right into the hands of the establishment eager to take away all the toyz. Moral compass? Not likely. Reckless is more like it.

Nevertheless, they are dangerous.

Were they really attacking Fedwire?  I wouldn't think the addresses of those servers would be widely known?  Seems like it would require some inside information.  It takes a certain level of knowledge to even know what that is.  Not something I'd expect from kiddies...

I'd guess either they're the real deal or agent provocateurs.
