How dangerous are cybercriminal hacking groups?

Just one day after hackers took down the website for the Murdoch-owned newspaper "The Sun," the FBI went on the offensive, arresting 16 possible cybercriminals yesterday and executing 35 search warrants throughout the U.S.

Fourteen people were arrested for their supposed connection to the hacking group "Anonymous, " which hacked PayPal after it suspended its Wikileaks account, while two others were arrested for cybercrimes linked to the LulzSec hacking organization.

Today on American Morning, Dave Aitel, President and CEO of Immunity Inc., joins Kiran Chetry to explain how dangerous these hacking groups really are and to discuss how law enforcement is attempting to address the threat they pose to online security.
