    I see nothing but cool from this.  Look, people put massive amounts of money and time into these games and if the game company's networks are this easily infiltrated and taken down then it is what those companies deserve.  Hopefully, if the dude has any legit skills he will turn his attentions to something of import.... like taking down BofA, The Fed, The IRS, the EPA, DHS, and HHS.  Followed rapidly, obviously, with the destruction of his/her computer systems and unplugging for a good amount of time, then write a book about how he did it and become a multi-millionaire security consultant, but do it the smart way and not get caught like the Mad Hacker did from my old phreaking days.

    On one hand, it is good that someone is exposing these companies' network weaknesses or loopholes.

    On the other hand, i want to play my games as uninterrupted as possible. This is where the NSA should be working on finding who this guy is.

    Except your leisure time has nothing to do with national security. If it did, you wouldn't be posting on this crapshoot of a forum lol.

    Read some of his comments and you might have a different opinion. He obviously isn't doing this for the greater good. HE's straight trolling.

    Gotta roll my eyes originally when people cite hacking and proclaim it as "good". You can make a case that Anon has had a positive impact, but unfortunately there are outliers to their general "mission" - which comes from having no requirements to "entering the ranks".

    This guy though? He isn't legion, he's just one. And he's just doing it for shits and giggles, not for any larger purpose.
