Internet security firm...facebook?!
Since when was Facebook a 'net security firm?!
"facebook"? you mean Facetime, right?
...cause last time I checked, facebook were a social networking site, not a security company :D
funny story though, i guess theyre gonna have some fun with that guy. of course....what if it were just some idiot from a rival hacking group or something? good way to trash their sites etc.
Completely Lost on this article...
I've read it about four times, and I think I can understand

Can someone more intelligent than me explain?
@ Mr ChriZ
"Can someone more intelligent than me explain?"
- if I'm dumber than you I wouldn't understand it either

Now go forth and .., no, hang on. It's probably better to leave the multiplying..
IT'S A TYPO GODDAMIT!
All these comments for an obvious typo?
Wonder how many emails the Guardian gets every day from you guys...
... "Amusingly enough, I actually *am* a Mensa member (evil grin)" ...

When I read that comment, I imagined the voice of Comic Book Store Guy from The Simpsons reading it.
Now if you'll excuse me, I must go and re-alphabetise my Xena Warrior Princess action figures, (boxed of course).
This article is suffering from a dearth of Paris Hilton, methinks.
sad, sad, sad
10 comments and none to do with the article. Most to do with a journo slip and the rest concerning some weird little club.
You really are a bunch of saddos on the Christmas tramp juice aren't you?
i do wish...
...you guys would use the term 'hacker' to meean what it aactually is and 'cracker' or 'defacer' for these kind of stories. this is supposed to be an IT 'publication' is it not? we're supposed to know the difference. and if we don't, you're supposed to be the ones telling us. argh!
"You really are a bunch of saddos on the Christmas tramp juice aren't you?" is the funniest thing i've seen this morning, btw! :-)
