LulzSec leak: Is this the beginning of the end for the hackers?

The trouble with hacking for glory – as LulzSec, aka Lulz Security are doing – is that you want everyone to know what you’ve done, but you don’t want anyone to know who you actually are. And the combination of human nature, where people want their due respect, and the internet, where every action leaves some sort of trace, means there will always be tensions between carrying out acts and denying that you carried them out.The logs seen by the Guardian from within the group show how that can go astray. In one episode, they become worried after someone is discovered talking in a chatroom about some bounty given to him by “Kayla”, one of the LulzSec members. “Kayla will talk to him,” says Sabu, the leader of the group, with the clear indication that shutting him up is the aim. see:LulzSec Hackers Make Enemies Online
Lulz Security, the hacking group that has been on a spree lately, might think its antics are hilarious. But some others in the hacker world are sick of its games.After six weeks of attacks — and hundreds of sarcastic Twitter posts — a number of people, offended by the exposure of innocent Internet users’ personal information and irritated by the bravado, are working to stop LulzSec by investigating and revealing its members’ identities to the world, and especially to the F.B.I.
