"Patriotic Hackers" Caught? Deceptive Duo Suspects Raided by FBI

 

The FBI has raided the homes of two teenagers in California, who are believed to be responsible for a series of patriotic hacks performed under the name "Deceptive Duo".

One of the two uses the handle The-Rev, and was known to previously be part of a hacking group known as Sm0ked Crew. The other, known as Pimpshiz, is already on parole for a series of Pro-Napster hacks. Neither has been officially charged yet.

The two apparently truly believed that by defacing government web sites, including those belonging to the Defense Department and a national nuclear laboratory, they were helping to promote American security in the wake of September 11th.

That the government just locks these kids up because it is cheaper to ignore the problem than to fix it.

  Depends  
 
on if they are kiddie scripters or really good hackers...
If they are just ks and used some common tools to break into systems that were not properly secured then they will end up in jail.

However if they actually circumvented a secure system and did it on their own then they will be at NSA. You will see a nice court hearing for public display and then all of a sudden they disappear from the news...
