  1. Welcome to the year 2011. This year, we have seen all sides of the term "hacking scandal".
  2.  
  3. We have seen anonymous' protests against Paypal, Visa/Mastercard, the RIAA, IRMA, HBGary, etc.
  4. These were done with the intention of exposing the world for what it really is. Monopolists
  5. continue to censor our lives; whether we may share music, whether we can make a donation to
  6. Wikileaks, whether we ought to keep our "freedom of speech" and the right to protest. Anonymous
  7. has lead us forward by showing that an idea is unstopable, and that when there is a fault in
  8. the world, we must join together and fight against it.
  9.  
  10. We have seen Lulzsec, in a wild bid to expose the lack of security in the world, and how this
  11. carelessness exposes people. How simple things (like an SQLi bug) will discredit your company
  12. by allowing customer data to be foolishly left accessible to people with a basic grasp of
  13. web security.
  14.  
  15. We have yet unknown hackers, who effectively took down Sony's PSN because of their careless
  16. treatement of customer data.
  17.  
  18. We have News Corp - a group with which many are familiar by now. These are people who provide us with
  19. current affairs of the world. They profit from peoples suffering, peoples gains, their gossip.
  20. They live off the people. And yet the destoryed the people in the now publicised phone hacking scandal.
  21. They abused the power available to them, and harmed families by giving them something they should not
  22. have had; hope. The victims of News of the World were suffering. News Corp made them grieve more.
  23. This is unacceptable.
  24.  
  25. There are indeed malicious hackers in the world.
  26.  
  27. Many people you hear about on the news - they are not malicious. Many have not caused harm.
  28. Many do not use credit card information. Most expose the bug, learn from it, and move on.
  29.  
  30. Mankind makes mistakes. Mankind is all the better for them. Mankind learns from them. Some
  31. people, however, do not learn. Until these people are pruned by natural selection, incarceration,
  32. or otherwise, then mankind will not develop. We will remain prey to the 'malicious' type of hacker
  33. that steals credit card information, or deletes voicemail messages and pushing the victims family
  34. to grieve more for their loved ones.
  35.  
  36. This is unacceptable.
  37.  
  38. We will begin today be presenting to you, various files obtained from The Sun, a company within the
  39. News Corp group. We will continue, then, by exposing the world for what it is; a less than perfect
  40. place where we cannot trust those who we ask to protect our information. We will continue, until
  41. the list has been exhausted, or until the world and man kind realizes that we must change how we
  42. go on.
  43.  
  44. Thank you.
  45. Batteye.
