Submission + - Anonymous helps turn in hacker who targeted charity (networkworld.com)

netbuzz writes: "A hacker who defaced and disabled the website of a New Zealand film company known for helping poor children could find himself in legal hot water in his home country of Spain after his attack spurred a Facebook/Twitter posse that included members of Anonymous, who the hacker may have been trying to impress. "Apparently, one of the (Anonymous) rules is you don't hack charity sites, you don't hack sites of people trying to help kids,” says the owner of the damaged site. “This guy was trying to impress them, to try and get into their group and boasting about what he'd done — but they turned on him, they chased him.""
