Never saw an issue with the minecraft servers... (I've been on and off it all day)
White hat hackers, they are not.
The end justifies the means, right? LulzSec will continue to punish companies and corporations that don't take the internet seriously. Anon was just the beginning of a simplehack revolution, and LulzSec doesn't want the internet to become a (bigger) cesspool of hacked info and ruined lives.
it is essentially useless if your target can handle the amount of traffic you generate (but if it cannot because let's be honest, who has a 200,000 USD I/O server?) but if they can't it is quite simply out of reach until the attacker stops the attack.
a DDoS attack does nothing to prove the security of a company when it comes to accessing data, it is just disrupting businesses. how'd you like it if you couldn't call 911 because someone was flooding all the lines? an extreme case but this isn't as black and white as some would like to put it, even tho I have no idea what their real intention is, so... go them?

Coudn't they just show them that their servers can be hacked by [Insert way here]? By show I mean just tell them. No need to go around dicking when people just want to play.
and people in another thread (about anonymous to be fair) said that the hackers weren't "aiming at regular folks"?
as soon as they affect you/something you frequent you'll be less of a fan of them (not a direct comment at any specific person)
gotta lova (sarc/) people that do this kind of thing just to show how great they are, give it a couple month and people will be like lolwho?
And who suffers in the end? We do. Increased downtimes, higher costs, higher security measures for regular companies. this is the kind of crap that keeps DRM alive.
My problem with lulzsec is just that they're not really doing it to prove a point. Anonymous do it to take down companies that've gone to far, or to ruin pedophile rings etc... these guys are just doing it for the sake of it, and they're not really hurting the companies.
