The infamous Playstation 3 and iPhone jailbreaker, George Hotz (Geohot), has confirmed Facebook has hired him. If you remember, Geohot just recently settled with Sony in a lawsuit where they suggested he was infringing upon their copyrights and claimed reverse engineering the Playstation 3 was illegal. The settlement terms were simple: Geohot agrees to never [...]
Since LulzSec has disbanded and been brought into the collective known as “Anonymous”, Anonymous has been keeping very busy and keeping with their “plan“.
This past weekend, the hacking group – LulzSec (Lulz Security), has retired. The announcement was made via Twitter on their @LulzSec account and on their website. The short tweet proclaimed:
Just minutes ago, the infamous hacking group LulzSec, put a new link on their site to the Pirate Bay torrent they just uploaded.
BitCoin/Mt.Gox Hacked, DARPA Digital Firing Range & LulzSec – Let’s begin with Bitcoin and MTGox.
- LulzSec & Anonymous are either one in the same or they are two independent groups as they state and have finally teamed up. Their goal – to bring government corruption to an end. This ties in with the latest post by Anonymous in initiating “The Plan”. The plan is to be carried out in [...]
Since Friday morning, LulzSec has been extremely busy. On Friday, the began the morning with posting a sort of manifesto on why they do the things they do. Ultimately they do it for laughs – entertainment and because they believe they can. They very much think they will get caught in the end, but their [...]
In a tweet this morning (their 1,000), they posted a link to a pastebin text drop that states the following (and can be found here):
Just this morning, LulzSec had tweeted that they just released over 62,000 user names, passwords & emails addresses. I’d advised anyone reading this blog to check to see if yours is listed.
Here it is:
The Lulzy one’s are back at again on Wednesday. First target was a DDoS attack on both “Heroes of Newerth” and Magnets.com. Both sites were brought to a grinding halt, but seem to be back up now.
As of early this afternoon, LulzSec has targeted EVE Online, FinFisher, Escapist Magazine and Minecraft. All three websites have been DDoS’ed and brought down. LulzSec recently tweeted:
Yesterday, LulzSec compromised yet again, two more sites/systems. Their primary target was Bethsheda Software – a gaming company. Their secondary target was Senate.gov. Yes – the US Senate hacked by LulzSec.
I’ve taken the time to scour through Twitter and the web to put together this quick rough timeline detailing the ever-growing list of the hacks and DDoS attacks by the LulzSec team. If I’m missing anything, please feel free to comment or drop me a line.
Now for this one, I commend the hacking group known as LulzSec. They are claiming responsibility for the DDoS of the Islamic extremist website - AlJahad.com.
LulzSec has hacked Pron.com (a free porn site) and dumped their entire database and posted it on their website. LulzSec hasn’t said exactly what vulnerability they exploited, but they noted in a tweet that the database they posted contains over 26,000 user names and passwords. They also noted that many of the user accounts had [...]
In a very recent post on Twitter (about an hour ago), Backtracesec names the members of LulzSec. I can’t and haven’t verified the accuracy, but Backtracesec has at least two of the former members of a hacking group known as “Anonymous”. The two former members are Metric and A5h3r4. Backtracesec tweeted the following:
The title says it all. Sony has been hacked a total of 11 times this year alone. The latest and greatest hack comes from a new hacking group that calls themselves “LulzSec”. They have established a Twitter feed and a website.
