I'm surprised this was being operated:
1. out of his home
2. inside the US

Like WTF, really? I wish all cyber criminals were this dumb.

I'm glad the HIPB guy was interviewed. I couldn't remember the name of his site (ironic, I know, but only went there once) and was hoping it wasn't him that got shut down.

Okay, let's try something.

If there's a site selling your hacked data, but it's outside the jurisdiction of your government's authorities. Furthermore, there's not even an extradition treaty with the legal territory from which it's being run. Would you support government hackers taking such sites offline?

Vote up if yes, down if no.

Any one that hacks, sells or otherwise, tampers with someone Else's computer information should do some serious jail time.

Anyone that has ever had their identity stolen will understand, and know this sentiment. Some may even state these criminals should be executed.

My sympathies.

Not to defend the hackers, but it's really the ones using the stolen identities who do the damage. I'd focus the worst punishments on them, and the middlemen, like the guy who got busted here. I can't agree on death penalty.
