You can never escape the fate of karma.

Well obviously. Dotcom gave them Mega keys, the very moment they redeem it, they are in for the jailhouse rock.

This is insane.. they should be freed. Hacking needs to be promoted.. if you keep doing this next thing you know your Country is left with no hacking talent and countries like North "C"orea will keep attacking or hacking your stuff.

KingPin3397d ago (Edited 3397d ago )

how about hacking and privately contacting the company to report every fault with their systems. maybe make a few videos to document step by step how they got in. MS and sony are multi-billion dollar companies, surely the hacker would be compensated for fairly in return.

disrupting everyones gaming experience is just selfish and childish.

its like you buy a car that has a brand with defective tyres and instead of going privately to tell the company not to use those tyres, or clearly show them in what way they are defective or recall cars that have those tyres, you go around personally stealing everyones wheels instead.

Corea is an archaic spelling for Korea -- circa Marco Polo times.

If you really want to be culturally correct, the name its citizens call it is "Hanguk" for the South and "Chosŏn" for the North.

@Devil-X - I bet if your credit card info had been leaked, you'd be saying the complete opposite.

Devil-X3397d ago

I still wouldn't care since I have two step authentication enabled on my card so nobody can use my card without having access to my phone as well. VISA!

Speed-Racer3397d ago

@Devil - Two step isn't offered with all VISA cards. Some banks don't have the facilities set up and it's still a new piece of tech to the credit card industry, so that argument can't stand for now.

Chill out guys and have some beer. I made this provocative comment only to encourage some comments from you guys..next time just spit it out, don't let your thoughts die in your head..just spit em out. We need more coments here at techspy to encourage interaction and to build a community worthy of giving n4g some real competition.

Speech without thought; that's a GREAT idea.

Please note the copious amounts of sarcasm in my tone.

They're a DDoS group, they're not hackers.

Ddos'ing a gamling network for "Lulz" isnt exactly white hat material. Neither is selling destructive Services.

ChrisW3397d ago

Don't give them a "Get Out of Jail Free" card for their expertise!!!

Throw them in solitary confinement and weld the door shut!
