As two of the most notorious hackers of the past year await trial for their 'patriotic' website defacement spree, other members of the hacker underground have threatened action if the pair go down. Last week vnunet.com was contacted by a hacker known as Splurge, an ex-member of the notorious Sm0ked Crew website defacement group.

    He warned that a number of ex-hackers, including himself, would return to their old ways if a pair of defacers known as the Deceptive Duo were sent to prison.

    The Duo were arrested by the Feds in May and are still awaiting trial. In the month before they were picked up, they became the bane of federal and military websites, defacing machines in the name of patriotism.
