Microsoft Store India Hacked

Microsoft Store's Indian site was compromised, by a hacker group that calls itself "Evil Shadow Team". The site's landing page was briefly taken over by the group, which gained access to the user database. The group then replaced the front-page with its signature, that warned that an "unsafe system will be baptized." The outrageous part of this episode is that the group claimed Microsoft was storing the user database in plain text, which contains usernames, email addresses, and passwords. The site is now offline, the company is probably back in control. Microsoft Store was started in India to discourage piracy and offer genuine copies of Windows, Office, Visual Studio, at the lowest possible prices; Xbox consoles and accessories; and Microsoft hardware (peripherals).

Maybe in the next Hollywood movie depicting a bank robbery, they'll show robbers wearing that mask.

i kinda like it...the point about it, is beeing anonymous, unrecognizable for the world as a person, but rather, as a part of the change.
The Change that will hammer and mould this world into the form,that it should have had since thousands of years.

Into a pretzel? I like pretzels.


Anyway anonymous strikes again at a soft target. Wish they would do something productive like go after the Mexican cartels.......oh wait they ran from those guys. Guess it only pays to be 1337 against people who wont kill you or care about you. I mean honestly. I could support anonymous if they did something like that. Something to stop murder and such. Instead all they do are little social justice stunts that make em look like kids.

The only thing thats going to take down the Mexican cartels is someone like Ron Paul. He wants to decriminialize drugs, possibly make them legal. Aand by doing so, not only will the sick people (addicts) get help, it would also remove non-violent drug offenders from prisons saving money, but it could turn into a major cash cow for gov't.
Think about it, when prohibition was going on the only people that were making money off of it were the mobs. As soon as prohibition was repealed, all of those mobs basically disbanded since they didnt really have as lucrative of a product. And then the gov't taxed it and started making money off of it.
Hacking their sites would do absolutely notjing to quell their business.

Thats not the point. They said they would expose people who work with the cartels. When the cartels said they would find them and kill them anno ran for the hills. So they a blow hards from what I can see. I REALLY want to support them if they did some real good. But when they flip flopped like that I lost any faith.

I can totally understand that. But threats from the mafia aren't to be taken likely as you know they'll follow through with them.

I know that man. But the whole "We never forgive, we never forget" kinda put them on the spot. In other words they talk the talk.......but don't walk the walk.
