Default Hackers Promise Month of MySpace Bugs: PCWorld

This might be entertaining to watch unfold

"They won't divulge their real names, they call their project a "whiny, attention-seeking ploy," and they appear to take their fashion cues from Beastie Boys music videos.
But two hackers going by the names of Mondo Armando and Müstaschio promise to begin disclosing security vulnerabilities in MySpace, News Corp.'s popular social networking site, every day next month.
"The purpose of the exercise is not so much to expose MySpace as a hive of spam and villainy (since everyone knows that already), but to highlight the monoculture-style danger of extremely popular websites," wrote Mondo Armando in an e-mail interview."

Kudos to them. MySpace is one of the most "hackable" sites on the internet. They don't care about their users security, or security in general it seems.
