    I can't believe people would call an SQL injecter a 'hacker' .. and even consider it a crime.

    All the guy did was point out how retarded the coders behind the aforementioned websites were total noobs . Who cares, really ?

    And if your password is important data, why would you put it on a random weak website ?

    Meh . I hope they don't recruit him cuz noobhackers like that are legion --

        Well, our beloved president preferred to suck on a single, bigger firefly - not on a herd of smaller ones. Hence the love for US.

        ...not speaking about signing of ACTA, without any consent...

    Web Application SQL injection is big business. Alot of businesses and corporations place business applications externally but place databases internally on the LAN and/or a segmented LAN accessible from the internal corporate userspace. Using an SQL injection it is possible to just hop straight onto the database environment and jump out onto the LAN.

    Big money is spent on expensive external firewalls which are breached in seconds.
