Say what you will about some of those hackers out there being in it just for the laughs and being a thorn in the side of businesses but there are also hacker groups out there who are going after the scummiest of the lowest on or off the web.

Called OpDarkNet the people involved are going after underground sites that are proliferating what is called the Dark Net, the darkest recesses of the web where pedophile groups hang out and share their sickening information and images. Of these there is one forum called Lolita City that has gotten the attention of the hackers and they have sworn to bring it down.

As one of the group members, Arson, told Andrew Chen in a post on Gawker the hacker group has been targeting the Lolita City forum in secret for some time now, which usually meant taking down their servers whenever possible. The only reason that the group has brought its activities out in public view is that they hope this move will get them additional resources so they can shut this one pedophile service down for good.

Part of shutting down the Lolita City forums also involves going after their hosting service Freedom Hosting, which the hacking group says openly provides hosting for sites carrying child pornography and forum sites for pedophiles. When it comes to Lolita City the hacker group claims that one pedophile forum site contains over 100GB of child porn.

As a result both it and its hosting company, Freedom Hosting, have been declared public enemy number one for #OpDarkNet.
