Anonymous Stupidity leads to arrest

by Kay King 15 replies
Member of Anonymous arrested thanks to a picture of his girlfriend | Nibletz

Brilliant hacker? But forgot about tracking pixels in photos....

The hacker talks about evils of society - while living on govt dole and stealing credit card numbers for HIS personal income. Wow, real public hero, right?

This guy comes across as an idiot with a huge sense of entitlement. According to hard news sources, he immediately began volunteering info about other hackers to save his own skin. What a tough guy.

Like bullies everywhere - talk big until caught and then cry, whine and sing like a bird.

    LOL - stupid way to go down.

    I don't see where you get that he was on the "public dole" or stole credit card numbers from anyone. Are you sure of those "facts" or just having a rant because you don't like what they were doing?

    Also very interesting that one of those caught previously was an FBI insider. I'd like to hear more about what's up with that one. Obviously this guy will get more press than that one did.

    I've never considered Anon "public heroes". Of course,, when the officials are on a bandwagon foaming at the mouths to shut down our online freedom of speech, it's pretty entertaining to watch their own sites whacked. It's also a bit eerie, too, because nobody really knew anything about who Anon was - how were we to know they wouldn't just broaden their horizons and do the same thing that Big Bro is up to whenever they felt the urge.

    I've always felt that Anon was more of a curiosity than a group of heroes.

      He said he was on govt payments - and that he had stolen credit cards to have some extra money....his words, not mine.

        Ah, okay. I'm still on my first cup of coffee and didn't see that one. Not what you'd expect from that talented of a geek for sure. Seems he could have (um..should have) been making some pretty good bucks on the side legally.

    HECK, some of those people say ****THEY**** should get FREE homes, social security, education, healthcare, etc...., and NOT have to work for it. That makes them WORSE than almost any of the bankers, etc... they claim to LOATH. The stupid truth is that if they WORKED, people would have to do less, and have to make and pay less, and there would be more goods that would be cheaper, etc... To have everyone do like five times the work just to pay for their survival, their hobbies, education, etc.... *****AND***** for others that are plenty able to work is just DUMB!

    From the story: "After authorities finally arrested him Ochoa did what he knows best and that was to to to PasteBin where he left a massage for everyone."

    His fingers must have gotten really tired.

    On a more serious note, it doesn't sound like he yet realizes how much trouble he is in.

    Like I said before - these are nothing but malicious, megalomaniac, terrorist THUGS.

    I hope he and all the rest of this bunch do hard time.

    There is absolutely no justification for anything that they do.

    .... Especially breathe.



    (just kidding about that last part)

      I think a lot of this cyber crime could have been prevented had Robert Morris been sentenced to double amputation of both hands instead of 3 years probation.

        Maybe. In hindsight it seems obvious that probation was too soft of a punishment. The trouble is, a lot of these reprobates think they're too smart to get caught, so they aren't too concerned about the punishment. They start with little things and work their way into bigger things. Having gotten away with the little stuff, they are emboldened by their own exploits.

          I figured this out as it was unfolding. I think there was consideration of his father. A scientist or professor if I remember correctly.

          When I saw that there was basically no punishment for this type of activity, it could only get worse.

            Good observation, Joe. That was before my time as far as computers and the Internet goes. I didn't buy my first computer until the mid 90's,

          They knew THOUSANDS of years ago that such punishment wouldn't work. HECK, it is in the BIBLE! Of course EVERYONE knows it! When I was in school, people, yeah, even 6yos, LAUGHED at the idea!

          It IS interesting that over a decade later, there was the SQL SLAMMER worm that brought HUGE corporations TO THEIR KNEES! In some cases, they were without email for WEEKS!

          I once knew a guy that was BANNED from CSUN(Cal State Northridge)! WHY? Because he fancied himself a hacker, and played havok with their systems. But he WASN'T a hacker! SURE, he had some LOUSY program to trick people into giving him passwords, and knew kevin mitnick, but that was IT! They learn ONE trick, and figure they know EVERYTHING! And they act like they are GODS.

    It's a scary world, and prisons are even scarier. I hope it works out for this guy, but i'm also not a fan of anonymous, I don't find them intelligent at all, I think they abuse technical flaws that any seasoned software dev or security consultant is well aware of. The changes needed in government aren't going to come from flooding sites offline...that's immature and damaging. Instead it'll come from voting and new laws.

    Maybe something good will come out of this. If they prosecute this guy for seizing and closing down websites - they have to make it illegal to do that...right? So what happens when the Gov decides to start seizing websites? They have to change some laws. There's been one heck of a lot of rumble because they are making different laws for themselves than for us.

    It will be very interesting to watch at the very least.

      It HAS been SPECIFICALLY illegal for ****DECADES****! It has been technically illegal for over 100 years. But only a handful of cases that I have heard of have jailed people for it. STILL, it IS illegal to hack into a computer without permission. The law PREDATES the WWW, and PREDATES the opening of the internet to the open public. STILL, it deals with the actual computer. It doesn't matter if it is physical, internet, accessed via modem or satellite, the SAME law applies!
