Episode Description 
A hacktivist is someone who busts into a computer network motivated more by political ideology or in the service of a cause than just to steal something for financial gain. The hacking collective known as Anonymous is perhaps the best known of hacktivist groups, and in the last several months, their efforts have expanded and inspired many spinoff groups of like-minded mischief makers. Now, a new report says hacktivist hacks now outnumber traditional for-profit cybercrime attacks.
