who the F*** is hacking all of these sites

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They are hard to catch because they are ninjas but I hear that the UN is going to set Shredder on their asses. Damn turtle hackers.

Funny. But you should have stop at "Because they are ninjas" or possibly add "and they live in sewers"

Darn these guys.. its going to take several of them being caught before this slows down.

Remember the uptake in high school related threats after the Columbine High School massacre? (I hate to bring that up). It took several years of prosecutions and infused education for 'at risk' parents and students to fully grasp the concept of risk and punishment associated with such actions. Life valued discussion (as a preventive measure) early in child/teenage development can go a long way.

Lets hope that parents are more involved in their children's computer activity and political activism.

Nah I think I where I went with it was enough. It probably isn't smart to compare some fat, smelly man-boys hacking websites to a child murderer.

dc13380d ago

You're missing my point. It may be extreme but never the less true. Continued publicized prosecution coupled with parental involvement/education is the only thing that will slow this trend.

(by the way may second point wasn't directed at you in general :) )

You still get props for the TNT reference!

dc13380d ago (Edited 3380d ago )

..... get your self together DC1!

buttclown3380d ago

Although bringing up Columbine is a touchy kind of subject, I see how it is similar. Kids think they are untouchable and once a few are caught and full prosecuted/convicted then I see this hacking "fad" starting to not be so popular.

We could also kill all children and then the problem would be solved. Why has nobody thought of this? /s

I think World War 3 will be a hacking war rather than a nuclear war. The War of the Nerds!

Hacking other companies was a crappy retarded thing for them to do, but hacking BioWare? Now they've gone to far! There will be so many people ready to sell them out!

gamingdroid3380d ago

Random people. It happens all the time. A lot of time criminal hackers employ scripts just to scan entire ip blocks to find computers that are vulnerable usually older versions with known problems.

Once you have been identified, it is as easy as pie to get in!

Mr Patriot3379d ago

guys we found the hacker

MWong3380d ago

I don't care who is hacking the sites, it's just getting damn annoying. Every other day now I see a story about a site or something getting hacked.

We need to call captain planet, quick where's that black guy at with his unique ring?

"Let our powers combine!" (p.s For Captain Gamer, I nominate Kevin Butler despite him being with Sony)

just got a bioware email or EA in this case about the this and they changed my password to it so i went ahead and reset the password to something else

BrotherNone3380d ago

How the hell did this get approved? This is duplicate news from news a week old. http://n4g.com/news/787787/...

Though it seems to be a new email message so did they take another security step by changing people's passwords? In either case, hardly news.

these hackers really want to get hired badly.
