        Yes, it did stop them, but also a lack of anonymity because there is too many identifiers on too many things.

          no it didn't, because hacker groups haven't disappeared. it's just these "for fun" groups that are gone

    Yeah, I did my best in removeing russian spies from agencies.
    If it were the 60s, I could make them disappear, but nowadays, we just send them back.

    Lol. 'Anonynous' was co-opted so quickly, and now they use that capital (reputation) as leverage for activities that neatly align with state priorities.
    "Omg anonymousse is hacking Russian pipelines to protect Ukraine, that's so based! I'm so glad I'm on the side of the 'good guys' like them, with my deep historical knowledge of the region, my thorough investigation and critical deconstruction of narratives, and nuanced understanding of global politics. I'm so glad this aligns with what I read on the BBC! Clearly we are fighting against evil. Just like how all history has been good vs evil, not simplified and mytholygised like all history is!".

    Why hack for free when if you are good enough people will pay you 6 digit salaries to do it for them. Anonymous was a hold over from the old culture, but after the old hackers finally got caught or converted to the FEDs nobody wanted to replace them. It just didn't make sense.

        Why would they. The vulnerabilities they have are a hot comity. If they used it on something silly they would risk revealing it and destroying the value of the work they did to discover it. Also the legal consequences aren't really worth the risk when they can get legally paid to hack. Hacking was done like that back then because nobody was going to pay you for it.

    because most of them became troons and allies of the globohomosexual so they have to leave their old hateful ways.

    Because its more profitable to do high-risk steal and launder money than be high-risk script kiddies that do nothing but get caught a year or two later.

    It's also harder to do any "hacking" when the past 20 years has been focused on hardening security.

    because liberal hacktivism is fricking stupid
    hacktivists still exist but they are not aligned with Anonymous-like ideals; they are political extremists like commies, fascists and eco-terrorists.
    also, hacking is (typically) way harder now and is out of reach for the average tard with a PC unless they are very dedicated

      People from those kind of groups either grew up or they are still getting their ass stretched behind bars. Security measures got better that they used to be in their times and most of those people simply do not have motivation to do it for free (although lizard squad was actually for-profit). So nowadays, only state-sponsored APTs and financially motivated cybercriminals are doing their thing since they actually have a remotely good reason to do the hacking.

      how did security improve? it's hard to believe that it took this long for companies to realize that they need to change their default passwords or something

        back in the day, you could actually get your computer compromised as a regular person by clicking a link, since there was no html5 and people relied on things like java applets, silverlight or adobe flash. All of those had more holes than a swiss cheese and exploits were popping up like muschrooms. Same goes for older android versions (see stagefright) or poor security practices in webapps (like the lack of proper input sanitization). Apart from that, people followed poor security practices that some follow up to this days (like changing passwords frequently, no 2fa etc).

          ctrl+alt+2*del on xp would pop up login window where you could just log in as administrator (no default password) and have access to everything. quite moronic

    because most of their hacks were low-value low hanging fruit for publicity, e.g. DDoSing the CIA website
    state media probably caught on that if you stop giving those attacks attention, they stop happening, so they decided to do that

    They got jobs, wives, kids. a.k.a. They grew up.
    The generations after them are too lazy, want happy-clicky buttons that work on their fondle slabs. Even most of the state agency attackers are gone.
