honour among thevies?

It looks like I’m a bit slow on this news article but it nonetheless amuses me.

Apparently phisers have a new enemy, defacers. I’ve only seen one defacing, someone’s wedding website (no comment about whether it was improved by the attack). I think this is great. Vigilante justice by the so-called quasi-criminal element just serves to show that even rebels have social beliefs. It also strikes a chord with those who believe that defacers are not in the same criminal league as other electronic criminals. If you are dumb enough to leave a security hole, you deserve to be defaced (he says smugly while secretly hoping that his own site is secure). It is still illegal. But at least vigilantism isn’t becoming boring.
