Lizard squad hackers

Has anyone been affected from the PSN and XBL hack that initially took place yesterday for Christmas and apparently is still going on, due solely for publicity? I believe this group of hackers are trying to gain equivalent attention, if not more than, "Anonymous". 
With all the publicity today directed towards system hackings, such as Sony and so forth, do you believe we should create networking to be even more secure or is a good thing we can debunk the systems? 
What value does it hold to the things you express on the internet? (knowing that anyone with the right knowledge can come through and manipulate every photo and word or wipe it completely into oblivion?) 
Side note: for any glow gamers out there, I've created a group under general health and lifestyle named 
"Game Room."
