It's a New York Post article. The same people that gave us the Boston marathon bomber suspects that were just random brown guys with backpacks a few readers circled in photos.

/ in other words, it's the farkin' New York Post.

You know, if it was a hack by the Russian Mafia or some lucky Nigerian then I could handle that. Everyone wants to make a buck.

But some stubble-headed like punkass doing it just to rustle the world's jimmies? That's just wrong!

Wait'll he takes it up the wazoo in a Russian prison. Then WE ALL will get to have loads of lulz.

"There is no such thing as protected information...only unmotivated hackers." - friend of mine who is a software engineer

Whoever did it literally probably did it for fun.  I am positive if their motive was simply money, there are over a million easier ways to get that if you have the talent this person (or group) had.

Developing a hack to steal credit card info and selling it at a discount for a split of the take sounds like criminal activity to me.

Noo, Subtard,the kid in the article was simply the one who wrote the malware. It even says in the article that they don't necessarily suspect him of making the attacks directly.
