snydeq writes “InfoWorld’s Ted Samson raises several challenging questions in the wake of HBGary, first and foremost being, should the cyber vigilante acts of ‘hacktivists’ such as Anonymous be embraced? No doubt the alleged HBGary plot is troubling, Samson writes, ‘but also troubling is how quickly some members of Congress seek to use illegally acquired information to further their own political agenda.’ The underlying message seems to be that cyber vigilantes may have more leeway than those who engage in equally illegal, though decidedly nontechnical methods to expose their targets.”
