Hackers claim there’s a black hole in the atom smashers’ computer network

Quote:
Hackers have broken into one of the computer networks of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

A group calling itself the Greek Security Team left a rogue webpage describing the technicians responsible for computer security at the giant atom smasher as “schoolkids” — but reassuring scientists that they did not want to disrupt the experiment.

So, are they saying that hacking computer networks is a mature and responsible thing to do?

Bureaucrats behave like bureaucrats the world over. I kind of get the impression they aren't taking this to seriously. Could that be because it would shut them down and they couldn't run their wonderful, advertised, show to the world, test?
Or am I just cynic?
