    But, who got hacked? Anonymous or anyone who felt like supporting them in that DoS attack?

    For instance, any WSF member could have considered joining that action, and fall for it, but that doesn't mean they're part of Anonymous or even hackers.

    The article actually says Anonymous supporters. It doesn't mean they're hackers. They could very well be just stupid people who believe they're smart enough for this kind of action. o_O
