Reading these articles have also given me a slightly better understanding of whether to trust information on Wikipedia as well. Although I still have some reservations, the logic behind hackers not having much of an interest in hacking information on a Wikipedia was understandable. However, I will still use Google Scholar and other educationally accepted search engines when doing research and maybe glance at Wikipedia information with an open mind to whether its valid information or not.
