    Today I got the following message from Bioware/EA in my inbox. Anyone got something similar? Is this for real? :(

    Sounds like a bit of social engineering...

    I volunteer - but only if I get to use an axe to do so :miffed:

    Hacking for the challenge? That I understand. Security always needs to be tested so the white hats are all good in my book. Do the hack, let the people involved know how privately so they can fix any issues they may have.

    Making it public? Not big, definitely not clever. The scrotes involved in this are somewhat irksome at the least, seriously vexing at worst. I'm not a proponent of violence but sometimes an impromptu kneecapping has been earned...

    looks fine to me.. sounds like a bunch of little kids- I mean webninjas really.. calling them script kiddies on top of it

    I just like lulzsec because their sense of humor is just so utterly ridiculous, if you can't laugh at that your dead.. the love boat playing as background music xD if you know what goes into hacking- they've made it look easy and have created a sense of this boat traveling around and hacking is somehow as easy as downloading a torrent.. they've got the average console gamer thinking they can do it too.. rooting along for the ride

    it's genius
