CIA Hackers Just ‘Schoolboys,’ Security Expert Says
They might have just brought down the CIA’s website, but the latest group of hackers on the scene are nothing more than “schoolboys.”
That’s the challenge thrown down by the head of technology at Sophos, Paul Ducklin, who claims the anonymous collective Lulz Security have to “grow some moral spine” if they want to be taken seriously.
In the past two weeks, Lulz have launched cyber attacks on Sony, Nintendo, gamers at Eve Online, a company that works for the FBI and the U.S. Senate. They claim their motive to be nothing other than showcasing companies’ online weaknesses “for the Lulz.”
