You might not agree with their methods but they have hit this right on the head in the video below. Huff Post also has an interview with a relatively new member of Anonymous that is really brief, but informative nonetheless.

Anonymous was going after the Federal Reserve. Even for a group that essentially set off a series of attacks that brought the multinational giant Sony to its knees in April, this seemed like awfully big prey. Yet if you doubt the group’s ability to do damage to a powerful adversary, you probably don’t realize that it’s already landed big blows against some pretty sizable opponents – to begin with, Sony, and MasterCard, and Iran. Or that its members recently broke into the website of HBGary, an internet security firm whose CEO threatened to out Anonymous members, and published 50,000 internal emails and the CEO’s social security number, humiliating him into resigning from the company.

BOSTON (Reuters) – Facebook’s 120 million users are being targeted by a virus dubbed “Koobface” that uses the social network’s messaging system to infect PCs, then tries to gather sensitive information such as credit card numbers.
It is the latest attack by hackers increasingly looking to prey on users of social networking sites.
“A few other viruses have tried to use Facebook in similar ways to propagate themselves,” Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt said in an e-mail. He said a “very small percentage of users” had been affected by these viruses.
“It is on the rise, relative to other threats like e-mails,” said Craig Schmugar, a researcher with McAfee Inc.
I wonder whether the fellas over at 4Chan are behind this breech. What a way to poke fun at the biggest science experiment in the world. As the world shivered in its boots and questioned the safety of this experiment, some random kids hacked into the system and made mockery of a device that some fear could potentially reak unknown havoc on the planet.

Macintosh computers have been gaining market share and catching the interest of hackers, according to Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) security vulnerability analyst Cameron Hotchkies.
“There are more eyes looking over Apple products for vulnerabilities,” Hotchkies told AFP at a notorious annual DefCon gathering of hackers in Las Vegas.
“It has slowly been growing as a target people are more and more interested in.”
