Last week, the hacker collective known as Anonymous posted online what they claim are semi-nude photos of BART spokesman Linton Johnson. In light of this very personal attack, we discuss the ethics of hacking.

Guests:

Matt Zimmerman, senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a nonprofit group devoted to protecting civil liberties online

Peter Fein, "hacktivist" who worked with Anonymous as an organizer for Operation BART
