Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Hackers have attacked an Arizona police department web site to protest the state's new immigration laws. While civil disobedience is an American tradition dating back to the Boston Tea Party, hacking is a serious crime. An effective act of civil disobedience should make the general public more sympathetic to your cause. This type if action does the opposite.

    I seriously doubt that some pro-immigration group is going to claim responsibility for this.... Apparently these people have been hacking other government sites all over the world making all sort of claims or agenda. We got to keep this in perspective.

    Well, this came from a group called LulzSec, who claims to hack for the laughs (lulz in their speak) only. As a techie and sometime security researcher, I follow this a bit. LulzSec is supposedly a spin-off of Anonymous, without the agenda of Anonymous (which, for example, attacked Scientology.)
    This particular case, though, shows that LulzSec seems to have an agenda as well. They seem to go for the low-hanging fruit only, though, with simple SQL injection scripts, so they are probably not all that knowledgeable.

    US has proven nursing shortage and still no visas for nurses. Forget GC, there aren't even any working visas.
