I highly doubt that Anonymous was involved, they are hacktivists now, they don't hack for lulz, they hack for messages. Technically, they are the terrorists of the internet, but at least people don't die from their bombs so meh.

Anyhow, the NBC hack sounds more like a graffiti hacker, they just want to leave their mark and move on, they're more like cockroaches than hackers really, still meh though.
