You guys are thinking way too small. State-sponsored hacking is the biggest thing this year. With Stuxnet damaging Iranian nuclear centrifuges (PSN can't leak radiation) to the state-sponsored hacking suspected of China that has come to light just today there are much bigger players out there than LulzSec and Anonymous. They are merely masters of the DDoS attack, but being able to gain control of PLCs through stuxnet was a much bigger threat. Did I mention that vulnerable PLCs effected by stuxnet are also found in many max security prisons in the US? Imagine unlocking EVERY cell in a prison at once, both releasing mayhem and crippling the system beyond repair.
