The story used to be that the evil hackers were Soviets in places like East Germany, but as details emerged the Hackers in East Germany were found to not be Germans, they were Jewish Communists. The Hackers there were actually tracked down by the East German Police, and arrested. Certain details were left out of the Media Mafia, for some reason.
Today, most public hacking attacks are scams for profit.
What sort of a creature would stoop so low?
