    Right? I believe you are thinking of Lulzsec, a hacker group along the same lines as  Anonymous

      Same five people. Lulzsec was a rebranding of anonymous when they were close to being exposed.

      Anonymous was never the mass movement it masqueraded as. It was a small group that had a lot of people saying "yeah, me too."

      The actual attacks were mostly carried out by a small group of players using fairly unsophisticated botnets.

      HB Gary worked because a supposed  "security expert" left himself vulnerable.

      Anonymous used social media to make itself look big and menacing, but it was in truth neither.

      Some one may be using the name, but its not the same group.

      Wealth doesn't trickle down -- it rises up.
