NATO fears Anonymous, Wikileaks as "threat to member-states' security"

NATO leaders have been warned that Wikileaks-loving 'hacktivist' collective Anonymous could pose a threat to member states' security, following recent attacks on the US Chamber of Commerce and defence contractor HBGary - and promise to 'persecute' its members.

They brought way too much attention to themselves by stealing the personal info of 75 million PSN users, and for what, so they can promote piracy?

ANON is a big failure, like the story of Kid Icarus they got too close and now its time to burn them. No one is above the law.

Depends on the law, there have been some really dumb laws made.

Don't defend them. There are things that don't need to be leaked. We don't need military strategies and what not out there for all to see. We live in a place where information provides the most advantage to our govt and If we like the place we live we shouldn't try to sabotage it.

well you should consider that arab revolution started because of Wikileaks.

A lot of countries dropped their despotic leaders.

Thanks to Wikileaks we know that Army killed Reuters reporters back then in IRAQ not "terrorists" so 2 more kids in that event.

Hiding truth about failtures isn't "GOOD" or "it must be that way".

AS of anon as i remember only recent Sony hacking made them bad guys.

HBGary was punished because they tried to sell wrong information to FBI. Also thanks to this event we know That HB GAry worked for Gov to attack wikileaks site.

I don't see who is good side. It's sea of greyness.

vigilante or people who hide their fu)kups ? Who is good ?

IMO people looking for other people hiden dirt are more good than people with dirt.

There are far bigger threats to us than Anons. I would rather have Anons releasing all information instead of having our government and companies releasing false or no information. I like to make my own decisions. Not have other decide what's best for me. And if something is done wrong by a company or government. Somebody needs to say something. They don't tell on themselves. And their dirt creates the problems, not people finding out about the dirt. So maybe they should try being more fair and honest.
