A positive story about hackers

It's nice to see a positive story about hackers. MOST hackers aren't law breakers [they typically do engineering work, solving complex problems with rapidly adapting and often non-traditional techniques] and so are of the 'white-hat' variety. Some are black-hats, and these guys were arrested in THIS story. But you have to appreciate the 'grey-hat' hackers as well, like the "protagonist" of this story, sending the carefully crafted documents to the bad guys to reveal their identity.
