The UK police have in the past few days hailed the capture of another Lulzsec member, this one being named as Topiary, one of the orchestrating higher ups of the Antisec movement. However, there is evidence mounting that in-fact the coppers may have been tricked into arresting the wrong man.
The arrestee was a 19 year old male from the Shetland islands on the North coast of Scotland; a real hackers fortress. In the past week his Twitter has grown silent with less and less information appearing elsewhere suggesting that indeed the police have got their man. However, Dailytech has collected some information that seems to show other wise.
Last month Lulzsec posted what [...]
Lulzsec have struck again, despite sailing off into the sunset on their Lulz cruise liner several weeks ago. This time they’re target was the Sun newspaper, the News Corp owned Tabloid rag from the UK. At the time of posting, heading over to the Sun’s website would result in a redirect to Lulzsec’s twitter account after a few seconds. They are also claiming responsibility via a series of twitter posts:
TheSun.co.uk now redirects to our twitter feed. Hello, everyone that wanted to visit The Sun! How is your day? Good? Good!
This was the final confirmation after they previously posted about the hack as it was doing down:
This is just as fun on the [...]
Another company has fallen and its another game firm. This time its Sega, admitting just moments ago that they too have been hacked. There statement reads:
“Over the last 24 hours we have identified that unauthorised entry was gained to our SEGA Pass database.
We immediately took the appropriate action to protect our consumers’ data and isolate the location of the breach. We have launched an investigation into the extent of the breach of our public systems.”
Well, its not completely immediate, but it’s certainly better than Sony’s response time.
“We have identified that a subset of SEGA Pass members emails addresses, dates of [...]
Here’s your daily update on Lulzsec’s comings and goings. Today they’ve released upwards of 60,000 usernames and passwords for sites such as Twitter and Facebook, prompting many people to change their details just in case.
The group who’s full name is Lulz Security, released the 62,000 or so passwords and usernames as a text file via a Mediafire download – which has since been taken down. However, several thousan users were able to download it before it was taken down, meaning many people’s accounts could end up being compromised.
What to do if its all too late and you think your account may have been accessed by a third party? Well [...]
Lulz Security, the group fronted by the suave, monocled stickman of legend, has been busy in the last 24 hours, taking down a variety of gaming services including League of Legends, Eve Online and popular indi hit Minecraft. However, they have now taken a ballsy step, targeting the CIA’s public site and bringing it to its knees.
The hack was announced via the groups twitter which simply read:
Tango down – cia.gov – for the lulz.
While some would say that this is the group going too far, its quite clear that their aims are really to show off their own talents, as well as highlighting lax security at a variety of different sources; and as they [...]
An unnamed Sony Spokesperson has come out (teehee) and claimed that Lulzsec lied when they announced how many accounts that they were able to compromise at Sony. They went on to say that in reality, a million was a massive oversight; it was in fact around 38,000.
“I am from Sony Pictures and saw your piece this morning on the attacks Sony has been under. I wanted to point out that the 1 million number you refer to in relation to an attack was announced June 2 by LulzSec, however, the actual number is less than 38,000. There is a notice on our web site: sonypictures.com (click on the red banner)”
Lulzsec most recently released a statement on the [...]
