    I guess this will make Spain a big target.

    Imho, "Anonymous" will probably kill itself off. I'm not even certain why they are labeled as a "group" really. You may have 20% that actually are "running" it, and 80% that are just a bunch of people doing whatever they please and going after whoever ticks them off at any given moment. Who is to say that the ones getting busted now are even a part of that 80%? Anybody can go buy the mask, hack into something and leave signs of the group behind.

    You'd be surprised at how dumb some of these so called "dangerous" people are. Also, there is always the possibility that Spain and others are claiming they arrested so called members of Anon just so they can save at least a few eggs from getting thrown at their face. There has been a hack fest lately, people are getting embarrassed badly. Governments and companies aren't above claiming they've got everything under control and claiming victories in times like this.

    HBGary hit was pretty organized. They hacked the spanish police website after the incident as well. I would love to see what type of servers they and Lulzsec hacked and make a comparison. Obviously they discovered a couple of exploits that the big guns of Security is missing. Or probably stupid passwords causing the breaches again
