[liberationtech] The People vs. Professional Hackers

So, are there legal methods to stop these people? Its ironic that
the Justice department, who ought to be prosecuting these criminals, is
(indirectly) contracting them to do dirty work. This is a big deal in its
own right because it speaks to corruption at a very high tier of government.
Shouldn't the spying be carried out by the FBI? Furthermore, is it legal for
the government to be (indirectly) supporting smear campaigns?

Where does this stop?

Best,
Dave Deriso
