There's something special about 90s and early aughts TV crime dramas, but this clip takes the cake. If you're old enough to remember NCIS, you might get a kick out of how dated this absolutely ridiculous 'hacking' scene feels now. It's truly a perfect artifact of its time. The chaotic editing. The cheesy 'digital' sound effects. The frantic typing. Honestly, we miss this kind of corny television sometimes.

Reports indicate that hacking group Lulz Security, commonly known as "Lulzsec," has been betrayed by its leader. 28 year-old New Yorker Hector Xavier Monsegur, known online as "Sabu," has apparently been working with the FBI for months to bring down his own buddies. These efforts have culminated in "a string of arrests" today in the United States, England, and Ireland. Lulzsec was responsible for cyber attacks on Sony Pictures, the CIA, and senate.gov, along with a number of video game-related websites. They are an offshoot of the larger worldwide hacking group Anonymous.

Their logo, which is otherwise known as the feel like a sir Rageface, is ever so delightful on the homepage of the BBC.
