The hacker group Anonymous has a romantic side, like Robin Hood, helping the weak and protecting them from the rich and powerful. However, they can occasionally show a brasher, darker, more disturbing side.

So he decides to find out who these hackers are. How he did it, and what happens to him afterwards, is a cautionary tale for everyone.  (note, plenty of coarse language in the article) http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/02/how-one-security-firm-tracked-anonymousand-paid-a-heavy-price.ars
